Pastor David Whitecross


Pastor Dave Whitecross is on a mission to help Trinity Presbyterian Church become a more open, intentional, and joyful community of faith.
The Toronto native initially pursued a career in maths and sciences, but in his fourth year of university a transformation of faith led him to Knox Presbyterian College in Toronto.
Pastor Dave, 60, has served congregations in Toronto, Calgary, Lindsay, and then for 17 years in Fergus, Ontario.
In January 2023, Pastor Dave joined the leadership team at Trinity Presbyterian Church, vowing to respect Trinity’s traditions, while setting a new, exciting path to grow the church deeper and wider.
He was a successful youth minister in several postings, taking church mission teams to Nicaragua and Haiti.
Pastor Dave has an infectious sense of humour, an easy style that welcomes both younger and older, seekers and longtime church members, and offers a challenging and meaningful faith journey to those eager to grow in their relationship with God. Pastor Dave is an astronomy buff, heads to the gym most days, reads non-fiction, and enjoys cooking for Aldo, his married partner of five years.
