David has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since the late 60s, and he met Jesus during the early 70s. He is deeply moved by the mission of Jesus stated in Isaiah 61:1: “To bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and freedom to the prisoners.”
As the Prayer Ministry Director, David supports, trains, and cultivates the prayer and intercession culture of Reality SF. In addition to leading the Sunday Prayer Team, David regularly facilitates Prayer Counseling sessions using the Immanuel Prayer approach.
David resides in North Beach with his wife Malia, who is equally passionate and gifted in prayer. He has five adult children (one of whom serves in our Sunday Music Ministry) and five grandkids.
