David Beresford - Youth Ministry Lead

As Youth Ministry Lead, David is responsible for the development and delivery of our ministry with young people. He leads retreats and days of reflection at the centre and in schools and parishes.

David has been working with young people, in numerous faith settings, for over 35 years, including retreat centres, mission teams, parishes and schools. He has a passion for telling stories and exploring questions of faith and life in creative ways. He loves the energy that young people have and enjoys playing games with them almost as much as leading them in experiences of prayer.

Although originally born in Hull and growing up near Grimsby, David now lives in Bognor Regis where he is an active part of his parish community leading Alpha courses and playing guitar in their worship band. He has been married to Sarah for over 30 years and is the proud Dad of his 18-year-old daughter Molly.

David has an undergraduate degree in Youth and Community Studies and a master’s degree in Biblical Studies. He is committed to enabling people to make connections between their own story and the bigger story of God’s love.
