Pastor David was saved as a young boy, and felt a call to ministry in high school. While attending Moody Bible Institute, his brother invited him to the Chicago Tabernacle, where he began to serve and continue to grow in leadership. During this season of his life, Pastor David encountered God’s presence in a powerful way. He is now married to Susie Stephens and has three young children, Owen, Eden, and Elliot. Pastor David has a desire for all people to encounter God in this way, so they can see the supernatural power of God in their everyday lives.
