Lighthouse Team

David Sawler,
Exec Director of Lighthouse and Undercurrent Youth Centres

Along with my wife, Shirley, and three kids we moved back to Glace Bay in the summer of 2005. Shirley grew up in Glace Bay and I lived here much of my teenage years, as well as, in Sydney. Before moving back to Cape Breton we were in Oakville, ON where I was a youth and young adults minister and mentorship program director.  Previously, we were working with youth in Windsor and Canning, NS.

Several years ago I started writing and speaking, and now spend several weeks a year talking to youth groups, parents, and churches around Canada and many other countries.  However, my heart is here in Cape Breton.

We are dedicated to seeing many new churches started here in Cape Breton, along with several more centres for youth. We are dedicated to seeing community transformation, where this generation can grow up free of addiction, hopelessness, and despair.

I am a graduate of Master’s College and Seminary who did their internship in Cape Breton. I liked it so much that I decided to come back! Although I am a resident of Ontario I feel a strong connection here in Glace Bay and am excited to serve here to the best of my ability. I have also had some training in photography and am eager to capture the beauty of this island so if you know any good locations feel free to send them my way!
