David Virr... Pastor My Life Story… I was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Even though growing up in a pastor’s home and throughout my childhood and adolescence I had been faithful in attending church with my family, I really didn’t truly follow Jesus until I was halfway through university. My father asked me to attend a Barry Moore Crusade in Newmarket, Ontario and I heard Dr. Moore speak specifically about ...men who looked in the mirror and would walk away forgetting what they look like. I knew that I had looked many times into the mirror of God’s Word but I had failed to see what I truly looked like. That night in 1985 God woke my heart to see the depth of my sin and the greatness of His mercy and grace...and I fell in love with Jesus and truly knew His grace in my life probably for the first time in my life that I can remember.
After University, I was counselling post psychiatric patients, alcoholics and drug addicts on the streets of Hamilton when I was asked to lead a weekly Bible Study/Chapel service for a local mission. From that “little pastoral” experience God led me to Seminary and eventually (2000) to become the pastor of a wonderful, God loving, Gospel living village church called Fellowship Baptist Church, Burford…a people whose simple desire is to...glorify God by making Gospel centred disciples in all the world.
In 1996, I married my beautiful wife Karen and we have three wonderful kids all of whom bring much joy and depth to our home. My Hope & Prayer for Fellowship... My hope and prayer for Fellowship is that we would be a family of men and women who know and worship the one true living, triune God and in all that we do to glorify Him! My prayer is that we would walk in compassion, mercy and grace and that our minds would be full of Him and His Word with our lives shaped by Him alone. How to Contact David...
