David accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior at an early age in life. He was blessed to be under the leadership of giants in the faith including the late Bishop Alphonso Way and the late Bishop Clarence Givens. He considered Bishop Senyo Bulla his spiritual father and mentor. In 2018, David fully supported and partnered with his wife to start Sent 4U Ministries.

David had a commanding presence wherever he went. Good, bad or indifferent, he left a lasting impression on everyone he met. Always community and family oriented, he did not hesitate to share his knowledge and opinion. Well intentioned, David was "unfiltered".
