Speaking Requests

During this time of transition into his role as president of the IMB and in light of an already full calendar David's availability is extremely limited. Unfortunately, he will be unable to accept many of the requests he receives during this time.

Thank you for your interest in David's availability to be involved in your gathering. Please know that he considers it an honor to partner with other followers of Christ in proclaiming the gospel, so he doesn’t take such requests lightly.

At the same time, due to David’s desire to lead his family and the IMB well, he will not be able to accept many of the invitations he receives. He has a team who prays over each request and gives council concerning which requests he should accept. This team has identified certain parameters that guide their decision-making, including the following:

  • In order to maximize his time away from home and the IMB, the team prioritizes larger events where pastors and/or church leaders are present from multiple churches.

  • In order to make extended trips overseas during the year, David is rarely able to be away from home for more than a couple of days at a time.

  • In order to protect his ministry and provide time for mentoring, Pastor David always travels with someone (either his wife or someone else). Therefore, travel accommodations would need to be provided for someone to come with him.

If you would like to submit an invitation, please complete the form below as thoroughly, and as specifically, as possible. Your invitation will be reviewed by members of our team, and we will contact you with a response as soon as possible.
