David Flanders has lived in Cornwall all his life. He became a Christian when he was 14, six months later he was filled with the Holy Spirit and soon after began to preach in local churches. On leaving school he went into management with the Milk Marketing Board. In 1981 David felt called to leave his promising management career and give himself entirely to the Lord’s service. He was an itinerant evangelist until he started Souls Harbour in 1987.
