When I was 17 years old I had a powerful encounter with God that changed my life forever. I knew He was challenging me with this question: “David, will you lay down your life for me regardless of what anybody thinks of you?”. As my heart responded “Yes Lord, I will”, I fell to my knees and was powerfully filled with The Holy Spirit.
It was a very real experience and I could tangibly feel His presence as His Spirit filled me. I was changed from the inside out and have never been the same since. A strong passion rose up inside of me to know God more intimately, to study and obey His Word and to be a ‘lover of the truth’.
A few years later God called me to be trained with and work for Ellel Ministries. Whilst at Pierrepont, Ellel’s largest centre, I met a beautiful young lady from Germany called Hannah who is now my wife. Before meeting me, Hannah always had a strong sense that she would marry a man who was in full time Christian ministry. God has done amazing things in both of our lives and we have no doubt that Jesus came to the earth not only to save sinners like us, but also to heal, deliver and restore us so that we can fulfil God’s plans for our lives.
Hannah is a wonderful woman and a most excellent full-time mother to our three beautiful daughters, Rebekah, Ruth and Rachel.
While I was at Ellel Ministries Pierrepont in Surrey (UK) I had the opportunity to grow in many ways as I had the privilege of working alongside an amazing group of servant-hearted leaders who loved nurtured, corrected and released me to do what I am doing today.
By God’s grace I am now privileged to be able to travel nationally and internationally to teach and speak at various events & churches as well as speaking on Christian radio from time to time.
In July 2016 we took a step of faith as a family and moved to Hungary to follow God’s call to spread the gospel further afield. Read all about it and how you can help here.
