What gets you out of bed each morning? The first thing that get’s me out of bed is my one year old daughter ;) ! But seriously...helping others to grow and thrive (starting with my family) is what makes me feel alive.

What’s your favourite book? Seizing Your Divine Moment by Erwin McManus

What 3-5 words best describe you? Passionate, Relational, Positive, Dreamer, Musical

What’s your favourite thing to eat? Where is it from? Honestly… so boring but nachos! Homemade is the best. The Next Act’s pulled pork nachos are a close second.

What’s something that people don’t really know about you? I lived in Ontario for a few months working as a lumberjack… while I was there I lived on a farm with no running water, only solar power, and limited cell service. It confirmed that I am a city boy. ;)

More... My name is Daunavan Buyer, I’m married to Kirsten and we have one beautiful daughter, Ava Rose (she’s only 1 so life is a little crazy these days). I work as a pastor, primarily with University Students, helping them find community, faith, and understanding how they can make a difference through their lives. I am passionate about building meaningful relationships, sports & fitness (both as a fan and an athlete), good food & drinks, music (again, as a fan and a musician). The last 2 years have been quite significant for me as I have lost close to 100 lbs. This journey has transformed my life physically (obviously), emotionally, spiritually, and relationally. It has been surprising for me to see how my journey has made a positive impact on the lives of others and I look forward to this continuing.
