Speaking Requests

Thank you for your interest in David's availability to be involved in your gathering. He loves preaching God's Word, he considers it an honor to partner with other followers of Christ in proclaiming the gospel, and he doesn't take such requests lightly.

At the same time, David's primary responsibilities are to love his family well, including his wife and four young children, and to lead the IMB wisely. David's leadership responsibilities in the IMB require him to travel a significant amount both domestically and internationally, which then limit his ability to travel for other speaking engagements. As such, for the sake of his family and the IMB, David is unable to accept most of the invitations he receives. A team of individuals assist David in prayerfully considering each request. This team has identified certain parameters that guide their decision-making, including the following:

  • In order to maximize David's time away from home, the IMB, and his local church, 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, 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.

Thank you for your gracious understanding of all of the above. 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, and we will contact you with a response as soon as possible. Regardless of whether or not David is able to participate, we pray that God will bless your gathering for the proclamation of His Word and the exaltation of His glory.
