Dynamic Downtown Worship in the Anglican Tradition

The Rev. David Booman

I serve the children, students, parents, and grandparents of St. Michael’s. My calling and special focus is to empower and equip parents so that they are able to empower and equip their children to live for Jesus.

Family: I am married to Caity and we have three sons and one very bad, compulsive cat who expresses her chronic anxiety by stealing our socks out of the laundry basket and scattering them around the house. Upon arriving home from work at the end of the day Caity and I have a daily ritual of seeking after lost socks.

Books: Les Mis by Victor Hugo, Villette by Charlotte Bronte, A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, Green Dolphin Street by Elizabeth Goudge, anything by C.S. Lewis.

Movies: The Passion, Saving Private Ryan, Schindler’s List, Braveheart, Unstrung Heroes, Rogue One.

What I like about the Lowcountry: There is so much to like. I especially enjoy the Caw Caw swamp. As a dinosaur aficionado growing up, while walking through such a primeval locale I keep hoping to see an Iguanadon peering back at me from behind a tree. I also enjoy the variety of excellent disc golf courses.

Most Interesting Assignment: Waiting tables at a Thai restaurant in West Ashley. Fantastic food and opened my eyes to how hard-working and sacrificial a good waiter has to be. It also reminded me of how many ministry opportunities there are while serving in the ‘secular’ world.
