David and his wife Jeanette have three children. They served as missionaries in Japan with OMF International. After their return to the UK David taught mission studies at the International Christian College in Glasgow. While there, he became increasingly aware that cultural changes meant that Scotland was becoming in effect a cross-cultural missional challenge for Christians. He was keen to help Christians and churches in Scotland benefit from the insights gained through centuries of cross-cultural mission practice overseas.
He now pastors Millerston United Free Church in Glasgow and continues his commitment to world mission through some freelance teaching and involvement with OMF International and Mission Reps Fellowship Scotland committees. To relax he listens to reasonably obscure rock music and is always just about to take up jogging!

After serving as a pastor in the United States for fifteen years, Wes and his family moved to Glasgow to start The Mosaic Community, a church-plant of Christian Associates International. This recently birthed The Upper Room Church made up almost entirely of asylum-seeking people and refugees from Muslim backgrounds.
He holds a PhD in Theology from the University of Notre Dame (South Bend, Indiana) and a DMin from Denver Seminary. Wes is also a Lecturer in New Testament and in Urban Theology at the Scottish School of Christian Mission in Glasgow and is the Coordinator of Neopolis: The Scottish Centre for Theology and Ministry in an Urban World based at the college.
He loves the odd mix of jazz and Gustav Mahler.
