Director's Introduction:

My name is David Provost and my wife, Sherry, and I are the new co-directors of the division.  Thank you to Larry & Robert Keeno for stepping up and covering this division when a new director was needed.  Larry & Robert continue to serve as directors on the Southern New York Division.

Our Background:  I have been with Fishers of Men on an off for 18 years and a prior director more than 10 years ago.  A lot has changed in these years including Fishers of Men going digital.  God has given me the talent of fishing and gave my wife the talent of digital knowledge so we work well together to assist each other in running the division.  I have been fishing all of my life and have great memories with my dad, and have passed the love of fishing to my children and grandkids.  If anything defines the name of Provost, it is the love of fishing.  Within this past couple of years, fishing has become secondary to my desire to bring souls to Christ.  My wife and I have been Christians for a long time, but in the past few years we felt a calling to use the talents that God gave us for His purposes.  We are grateful to Fishers of Men for giving us the platform to use our talents for Him.

We encourage you to sign up early to ensure that you get the best placement in the launch line up.  But don't worry, even if you wait to pay until the Friday meeting, you still won't be the last out because, as directors, we always launch last.  

Please review this website and/or our Facebook page for the latest updates.

We would like to extend our gratitude for and thank you for your grace as we tackle our first season as directors.  Please feel free to provide feedback on how we can improve and things that you would like to see in this division.  We really feel humbled and privileged that God has called us to lead this division and we want to do our best for this family of fishermen and glorify God in all that we do.  Our contact information can beound in the header above if you have any comments or suggestions.
