"The longer you stay in youth ministry, by the grace of God, the better you get."
Dave Thornton is Youth, Children and Families' Director at Christ Church, Winchester and has 27 years of youth ministry experience. He still doesn't feel he knows very much. He has had several articles published in Premier Youthwork magazine and has spoken at training events for Christian youth workers around the country, including the Good Book Company’s Bible-Centred Youthworker conference. He is married to Fiona with two teenage children. He has had more strange incidents than most people including falling off a cliff and setting fire to three tables at a youth group barbeque.
He's still got loads to learn about youth ministry, so do get in touch if you spot something he's missed or got wrong.
"I know more than when I started."
