The International Director

Dave Brereton

Dave Brereton has been involved with Youth for Christ since 1995. He first served as the Executive Director of Montreal Area Youth for Christ from 1995 to 2000. He then served on the Montreal board from 2000 to the present, also serving on the Canadian board from 2003 to 2006. In 2006 he became the National Director of Youth for Christ Canada where, under his leadership, the ministry grew substantially and become very globally connected for mutual blessing and encouragement. Dave is also an elder in his local church since 1992 and has been involved in the start-up, growth and development of several technology-related businesses.

In 2018, Dave transitioned from his previous role as National Director of Youth for Christ Canada into his new role as International Director of Youth for Christ. Dave and Katy have a large family of adopted and foster children and grandchildren most of whom live near them in Montreal, Canada.

Their love for and calling to serve teens and children from diverse backgrounds and early life experiences have made them feel loved and understood by the Youth for Christ family over the years. Dave works in Montreal, travelling to Denver and other parts of the world as needed. Dave has always served Youth for Christ as a volunteer.

We ask you to pray earnestly for Dave and Katy and their large family as he leads in this strategic and demanding role. Please also pray for the leadership team and staff as they work together with Dave.
