David Brenn, The Master's Prison Ministry
David was the 2nd oldest of 8 children who grew up in the Parkdale area of Toronto during the 50's and 60's.
As early as he can remember, he stole from family, neighbors, and friends. Physical abuse at the hands of his father to stop this stealing, only led David to seek affection elsewhere. As a youth, David ended up selling his body to older men for money.
At 17, David threatened to kill his own father after learning his father beat his mom. Following this, David was forced, by his father, to leave his home and family. At 18, David was homeless on the streets of Toronto.
A promising professional baseball career was traded for a stay in a Mental Hospital. For the next 15 years, David was in and out of relationships, with 2 marriages ending in divorce. He was drinking heavily and addicted to street drugs to dull the pain of rejection.
By his early 30's David was going to prison, and considered ending his life. In a prison cell, he cried out to God, who was always listening, and the rest as they say, is history.
Now, years later, David is blissfully married to his lovely bride of 36 years, who faithfully stayed by his side during the dark years. They have 2 wonderful sons aged 27 and 31.
After 26 years of employment with North Queen Auto Parts, the company closed business in June 2012. David has now been working for 5 years at a Ford dealer as a shuttle driver.
