David grew up in Rochester, NY. As a young child, David had trials enter his life. David’s dad committed suicide when David was only 5 yrs. old. He did not grow up in a Christian home and at the age of 18 yrs. old, he had pretty much tried everything to satisfy the longing in his soul.
One day when he was hanging out in the mall with his cousin, a man came up to him in the mall and handed him a Gospel tract called God’s Simple Plan of Salvation. This man went on to explain how David could have eternal life! Those words, “Eternal Life” stood out in David’s mind. After the man explained how David could be saved, the mall guard came up and told the man witnessing that he could not do that in the mall. Although this man’s witness was cut short, it still took root in David’s heart.
A few months later when David arrived home from a party that he went to again to try to fill the longing in his heart, he remembered these man’s words of how to be saved and David knelt down by his bed and asked the Lord Jesus Christ into his heart to save him!!
He has never been the same and God put someone in his path to invite him to a good, Bible-believing Baptist Church. He grew in the Lord and served God in Rochester, NY for a few more years. Then, he went to NYC to help a couple of churches there. He served with the Pete Montoro Family in Astoria, Queens and then the Dana Dice Family in Jamaica, Queens.
David prayed fervently for a wife to serve along side him. Jill came into his life and after their marriage they have served faithfully in various churches in NY State until God called them to West Virginia. In NY, David taught a young married couples class for 10 1/2 yrs. David & Jill’s goals have been to make a difference in the lives of other people for the cause of Christ!!
Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
All glory and praise be to Jesus Christ!!!
