David Cathcart was born and raised in North Delta, a suburb of Vancouver, BC, where he grew up attending Royal Heights United Church. He started a degree in drama at the University of Alberta in Edmonton in 1992; but after someone suggested that he couldn’t find a degree less practical than drama, he transferred into honours philosophy. After receiving a BA honours, he studied at the Vancouver School of Theology where he completed his MDiv. In 2003.
David was settled in Alameda/Frobisher Pastoral Charge in the southeast corner of Saskatchewan, where he served for four years. He was called to Knox United Church in Brandon, Manitoba in 2007 where he served for five years. In the summer of 2012, David accepted a two year presbytery appointment to Oakridge United Church.
