The Reverend David S. Crawley, was ordained as priest at Christ Church Cathedral, Ottawa, in 1977. Prior to his ordination, David worked as a staff member for IVCF in Peterborough, Ontario. He studied theology at the University of Nottingham and St. John’s Theological College, UK, where he received the equivalent of a Master’s of Divinity degree. David served in four parishes in Eastern Ontario before coming to St. Peter & Paul’s. After 19 years of as Rector in this parish, David resigned as Rector, and continues in active ministry within the parish and beyond.

David married Anne in 1970 and together they have three daughters and now four wonderful grandchildren. Anne is an RN working in the Ottawa region. Anne and David share a joint calling to the healing work of Christ and have given leadership together and individually in the equipping of the body of Christ in this vital area of Christian ministry especially where it intersects with the call to Discipleship.

David enjoys music, reading, outdoor sports, and spending time with Anne and his grandchildren, all of whom help to bring balance to his life and ministry. He continues to be passionate about the ways in which the Gospel of Jesus Christ enables transformation at the individual, congregational, and community levels.
