Pastors Dave and Shannon Mischuk

Pastor Dave attended Zion Bible Institute in Rhode Island and graduated with a B. Sc. Theology from North Central University in Minneapolis in 1988. He was the Youth Pastor and Associate Pastor at Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church in Arnprior for the following five years.

New Song Church and World Outreach started off in the living room of Pastor Dave’s parents place with five people in total. The first official service was held on Easter Sunday in 1993 at a pub on the grounds of the University of Waterloo. Pastor Dave was 26 years old and very much single.

At the end of the summer in 1995 he was swept off his feet by a Sunday visitor… Shannon was in town visiting family, she’s from White Rock, BC. They began dating later that fall, long-distance. On the 40th day of seeing each other in person… on May 11, 1996, they were married on the top of Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver, BC.

They have raised four amazing kids in the church. The oldest two attend Trinity Western University in Langley, BC and the youngest two are still in high school.

Pastor Dave received a Doctorate of Divinity Honoris Causa from the HSBN School of International Ministry in 2018.
