When David Servant read the results of his high-school vocational aptitude test, he laughed. The results told him that he was best suited for a career in ministry or in entertainment. At the time, David's future goal was to live in a log cabin in the wilderness and live off the land for the rest of his life.
The Lord, however, had different plans for David Servant. God didn't intend for him to run away from the world, but rather to play a part in changing the world—by building God's kingdom. David received his call to ministry during his (reluctant) freshman year at Penn State, and one year later was enrolled in Bible School.
Upon graduation, David and his new bride, Becky, pioneered their first church in David's hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. That was more than thirty years ago.
Over the years, David and Becky Servant pioneered and pastored three churches, all three of which were very missions-oriented. David often traveled internationally to teach in pastors' conferences, during which time he developed numerous ministry friends in scores of developing nations.
When David was serving at his third pastorate, Jesus' words in Matthew 25—the foretelling of the future judgment of the sheep and the goats—caught his heart, and that birthed a transformation in his ministry. Heaven's Family was the result, launched in 2002.
David Servant is the author of eight books, including Forever Rich, and the The Disciple-Making Minister, a 500-page equipping manual that has been translated into more than 20 languages and is being distributed to tens of thousands of pastors.
David and Becky have been married for 32 years. They have three grown children and one grandchild.
