Dave Pickett – Senior Minister

Dave leads the eldership at TCC. After completing training at Regents Theological College he came to Thundersley in 1997. He passionately believes in having ‘adventures with God’ and believes that life with Jesus is full of exciting opportunities to serve God and enjoy living out the Christian life.

Born and brought up in SE London, he joined the Royal Marines in 1974 and served as a RM Commando for 12 years seeing active service in N. Ireland and the Falklands War. After the Falklands War he began to have some thoughts and questions about the Christian faith which led him ultimately to put his faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

He is married to Alice, they have three grown up children and grandchildren. He has a BA (Hons) in Theology and Christian Ministry and an MA in Missional Leadership and is ordained by the Elim Pentecostal Church.
