David has always been someone who learned quickly and would not hesitate to jump in with both feet if he believed in what he was doing. This has led to an interest as well as skills in very many areas.
Even in David's first year in school, he was already being set apart. He won an art/drawing contest in first grade. From then on, there was always something different about him. David's keen interest in people and his ability to pay close attention to detail, were natural fits to his God-given ability to draw portraits. Even in his graduating class of 1982, he was elected as "Most Artistic".
David went straight from high school at age 17 in Maine to 1600 miles away to college in New Orleans, LA. There has always been a fierce independent and adventurous spirit in David. After a year away, David returned to New England and finished out his college years at USM in Portland/Gorham, Maine as a Fine Arts major and earned his Bachelor's degree.
Along the way, at age 20, David had a strong conversion to Christianity and met Robin, his would-be wife of over 33 years.
Immediately after his conversion and before meeting Robin, David started writing original music. This was such a significant new passion that he wrote 100 songs in his first three years of writing and well over 350 songs to date.
David and Robin quickly started there family and had 4 children in their first 6 years of marriage. David always had a full time job, and continued to grow in his Christian faith and constantly wrote songs AND usually had a business or collaborative effort growing on the sidelines. He was always trying to grow and better himself and provide for his family.
Robin was amazingly supportive over the many years as David not only engaged with but created many business and/or ministry models. He was never content with status quo. He was always trying to push the envelop and do things because they were the right ting to do; not because it was the way it was always done before.
Eventually David became a Pastor, while working a full-time job. This went on for about 9 years. As David transitioned out of the senior pastor role, he continued to be VERY ambitious and creative in his personal, business and church lives.
Over the next 10 years, David continued to work a full-time job, but also built and branded significant ministries inside and outside his local church experience. Simultaneously, for many of those years, he was continuing to write music and grow himself as a business man and entrepreneur both face to face as well as on the internet.
Finally in 2018, David and Robin together received a highly unusual but very clear and bold call to become missionaries. Just as David was seriously preparing to launch a career on the internet, God also called he and Robin to build a global ministry platform (from scratch). Neither one had ever dreamed of leaving the USA or becoming missionaries. However, within 100 days of that "calling", David left his employer of 12 years, met people from all around the world. They both got all of their travel shots, and visas in place for (4) countries. They accepted the call and figured out what they needed to do. They built the ministry that would 'send' them...Red Gone White Global Ministries LLC. They got ordained by Christian International. They built a complete and functional website and went to and returned from a trip to three countries in Africa!!
After returning from Africa (the first time...), David focused on growing his skills and presence on the internet. He became a founding member of Branding YOUniversity and selected to be one of 10 people on it's original Executive Mastermind team (BEM). Part of his effort included creating over 100 branded and optimized tweets, which he set into an automated format. He also wrote, filmed, edited and published 40 fully branded videos in 40 days. David quickly set himself apart as a go to person and an authority.
He continues to work a full time job and also continues to build the global ministry and create his music.
In 2019, David returned to Africa for a 30 day trip to (3) countries. On just those two trips to Africa, David preached 65 times and held or participated in (5) conferences and (3) crusades and wrote a 20 page Constitution and founded a Church. As a result of the last trip, there are now (2) schools, (2) churches and (2) orphanages being created, built and/or expanded.
David and Robin's ministry has officially become a church...Red Gone White Church. Their calling is to build schools, churches and orphanages (and even medical facilities). They are now building an online church platform that will exist primarily on the internet. It will point to their on the ground ministry around the world, but engage with people internationally as well. Under this church is also Red Gone White Global Ministries (which accounts for David's preaching and crusades as well as new and affiliate churches). Also is another ministry co-founded by David...Hope Rains Foundation..along with evangelist Emmanuel Jongo in Sierra Leone. This ministry accounts for the schools and orphanages (new and affiliate) within their organization.
At the time of this writing, David is also wrapping up a fully produced and mastered CD of 13 original songs on an album called REDGONEWHITE.
