I am Dave Almack, and FaithLit is my new blog. I am a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and a lover of great Christian books. It is my privilege to serve as the U. S. Director of CLC International, to be the husband of my best friend and the father of two growing boys. I love the city of Philadelphia and all its sports teams, and I happen also to be a fan of the Tottenham Hotspurs football team in the UK—go figure. I grew up as a missionary kid in the West Indies, which may explain my love for Premier League soccer and my desire to retire to an island one day.
I never thought I would one day be a missionary myself, but that is what I am. I am a missionary of the printed and digital page and thrilled to see how God uses books to change lives. My life has been one great big adventure: from leaving the USA as a 10-month-old to going to boarding school at the age of 15, never returning to live with my birth family on a regular basis from that point forward.
One thing I have learned: I have found contentment and true fulfillment in only one place—where the will of God and my gifting intersect. It’s awesome to be in the place where God can use me exactly as He made me to be. Right now that is with CLC where I oversee eight Christian bookstores, a publishing house and an international missions sending base. What a crazy and yet amazing life I have been given.
