DAVID KETCHEN: A Brief Biography

David graduated from Fergus High School in 1957 and secured a position with Trull Funeral Homes in Toronto as an apprentice funeral director and embalmer. In 1961, sensing a strong calling to Christian ministry, he enrolled at Waterloo Lutheran University (now Wilfred Laurier University) and graduated with a B.A. He further pursued his theological studies at Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia, PA. During his final year, he married Evelyn Root, and together they have three sons, Jonathan Tad, Michael David, and Stephen James. David and Evelyn have ministered to five congregations: Cranberry Portage in northern Manitoba; Innerkip, Ontario; Sydney, Nova Scotia; Duanesburg, New York; and Valparaiso, Indiana. Upon David and Evelyn's return to Canada in late 1999, they settled in Guelph, Ontario, where for several years, David served as pulpit supply in various churches in southern Ontario.
