Dafydd was saved by the grace of God at the age of eleven under the ministry of Geoff Thomas in Aberystwyth, Wales, following some weeks struggling with the reality of his sin and the justice of God's condemnation. After a few years spent working in both secular and Christian organisations Dafydd undertook theological training at the Evangelical Theological College of Wales (since renamed Union School of Theology). Following his ordination to the Christian ministry by the elders of his home church, Dafydd emigrated to New Zealand to help with planting and establishing Grace Baptist Church in Christchurch (1996-2006). Since then he has been involved in a similar role in Crosspoint Church. Dafydd is married to Maria and they have two children.
