About David

When I was 18 years old, I trusted in the Person and work of Jesus Christ. Before this, I lived an indulgent lifestyle living to please myself. Growing up I was involved in church, Bible studies, and many other church activities but truly never understood or believed the gospel. Throughout my teen years, I was living for myself and this world only to find out there was no hope in anything I was searching for. Fortunately, I came to a breaking point when I was 18 and thought back to what I was taught. It was at this time in my life that I came to faith in Jesus.

Originally, I never imagined myself in full-time ministry, but this all changed in September of 2016 when I went on my first mission trip. God used this to direct me to ministry. In January of 2018, I answered this calling by moving to the Philippines full-time, entering a language school, beginning to learn the culture, and serving in the local church.

I entered the Bible Institute in June of 2018. My experience was unforgettable! I not only learned what I believed but why I believed it. As I studied and served, my heart for God's word and discipleship grew immensely. I graduated in July of 2022 and was invited back to serve full-time, I couldn't see myself anywhere else but Word of Life Bible Institute discipling students.

Life Verse

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:8-10
