Dave Cottrell lives in Gibsons, BC. He is married with four adult children & five grandchildren. He is an outdoorsman and has a passion for photography, especially in the outdoors.

His calling is being the pastor of Sunshine Community Baptist Church, a small, Independent Baptist church started about fifteen years ago. Being involved in online business has helped to support him in this ministry.

Dave & his wife, married in 1978, were introduced to their first experience in marketing shortly after they were married. He was the one in the group who was very quickly recruited to present the business plan. Dave has built very large international organisations, and has also managed a large international online affiliate database.

In 2007, undiagnosed Lyme disease struck and in a matter of months, Dave was virtually bedridden. It took several years to get accurately diagnosed and begin treatment, but although it is a very slow process, he has been improving, and is back online again at American English Translations. Dave's experience, persistence and never say die attitude can help anyone who desires to succeed and is open to learning and hard work. Contact me at jcfs@usa.net .
