Dr. Dave Canedy is not new to BWM. Prior to becoming the deputation director, he served on the BWM board of trustees from 2001-2009 while he pastored Marquette Manor Baptist Church in Downers Grove, Illinois. He and his wife, Nancy, also served as BWM missionaries to the Maritimes of Canada from 1989-2000. Their burden for missions began during their youth ministry at Marquette Manor from 1982-89 as they led several mission trips to expose the teens to the mission field.
Dave earned a bachelors degree in accounting ('79) and masters degree in pastor studies ('82) from Bob Jones University. In 2009, he was honored with a doctor of divinity degree from Maranatha Baptist Bible College of Watertown, Wisconsin. At BWM, Dr. Canedy provides encouragement, training, and accountability for missionaries in their pre-field ministry and for those involved in church planting in the USA. It is his prayer that the Lord will use him and Nancy in the process of calling and sending forth laborers into His harvest field.
