Hi. My name is Dave.

Just like you, I’m on a great adventure called “life”.  So far, God has blessed me with the privilege of working with young people in camp ministry, He has repeatedly opened doors for me to work in multiple Christian schools, and He has surprised me by inviting me to lead in my local church. In the midst of all that, He has given me a knack for playing in the dirt. (You can see my other blog for information about gardening, landscaping, and enjoying the outdoors – or more recently I’m currently pastoring a church in Penhold, Alberta –

So regardless of whatever my current job title happens to be, my God-given task is to help people experience “Life” – the full and abundant life that comes from knowing and living in Jesus Christ. This blog primarily contains sermons that I’ve preached, but it also has a smatterings of my other thoughts, ideas I’ve tried, games I’ve played, and a bunch of other stuff – all here for the purpose of helping people experience life together with Christ.

Dave Trenholm is the husband of a lovely lady named Heather and is the father of four wonderful children. They reside in Central Alberta, Canada.

    I accidentally came across your Bible Reading Plan for Kids ages 9-12 where they read 5 verses a day. I didn’t think it would be so hard to find again, but, I can’t find it. Can you please direct me to where this can be found on your website. I have really enjoyed reading your messages and want to share this plan with my two grandsons who are with me lots. Thanks so much. Carolyn

    Hi Carolyn,

    Thanks for your kind words! I’m glad you’ve been able to find my messages useful!

    I think the post you’re referring to is this one: If, for some reason, that’s not what you were thinking of, let me know and I’ll do a little more digging – but this is the one that came to my mind.

    I hope this will be a helpful step for your grandsons to develop their own personal relationship with God!

    Good morning Dave! I was awake early Thursday morning as I sometimes have trouble sleeping and happen to come across your commentary for Samson – The Battle for Revenge and Finally Finding Faith. Oh my goodness, what a blessing. I am so appreciative of your commentary. Your commentary helped me see a different perspective of the word and it was AMAZING! Thank you so much! Wondering if you have more commentaries I can read and share with my family?

    Hi Lynda: I’m glad you were encouraged by my posts. Most anything that I have written has been posted on this website. Feel free to browse around and see if anything else catches your attention!

    Good morning, Dave!

    My name is Marilyn, and I am part of our liturgy team that plans and presents music and readings, on Zoom, to our small aging community here in Cobourg, Ontario.

    I am looking for material for a Happy Birthday Baby Jesus service that we will present, in person, on Dec. 11th to our grand kiddies and little children in our community.

    Would it be possible for me to print out your Christmas poem for children that you used on Christmas morning?

    Looking forward to your reply,

    Peace, love, laughter and hugs,

    Marilyn: You would most certainly be able to use the Christmas poem for your service! Have a great Christmas!
