Join us the weekend of January 31st – February 2nd, as 300+ students from college campuses across Florida gather in Starke, Florida for our annual Florida Navigators spring conference – Ignite 2020. This conference will challenge and deepen both your understanding of the gospel and how to live a life marked by the good news of Christ.
Through worship, a speaker with a deep understanding of Scripture, and two workshops taught by Navigator staff, you will learn more about how to center your life on Christ. This year’s keynote speaker, David Williams, will give 3 messages throughout the weekend regarding the gospel and how knowing God transforms our view of ourselves and the world around us.
Ignite 2020 keynote speaker,
The early chapters of David’s life are characterized by a confusing childhood and years as a college student and young professional filled with alcohol, partying, sexual immorality, unwanted pregnancies, abortion, marriage, adultery, and divorce. At the age of 26, David’s life was radically transformed by God’s amazing grace. Shortly after this in 1999, David sensed the Lord leading him to leave a promising career in the public sector to enter into full-time ministry to inner-city teens at the City Mission in Cleveland Ohio.
A couple of years later, David married his bride Terea and joined her as full-time staff with Cru. During his 10 years on staff with Cru, David served as campus staff in Northeast Ohio, a traveling speaker, and chaplain for the Cincinnati Bengals. David served as a Senior Pastor at CrossWay Community Church, a predominantly white congregation, in Orlando, Florida.
God has worked in David’s life and ministry experiences to give him a heart and passion to be a part of reaching, building, and sending this generation of youth, college students, and young adults with the glorious gospel of Christ; exhorting the body of Christ to live out her unity among her ethnically and culturally diverse members; being a voice for the unborn while extending the compassion of Christ to their parents.
David serves as an itinerant preacher and evangelist as he partners with various ministries locally and nationally. He is a member evangelist of Next Generation Alliance (a ministry of the Luis Palau Association), a member of MAN (Men and Abortion Network), a speaker with Cru and represented by Ambassador Speakers.
David received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Pittsburgh. David and his wife, Terea, and their six children live in Orlando. David also has an adult son who lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
