In Steve’s words: “I accepted Christ as my savior at the age of 12, I finally realized some of the significance of that decision when I was about 23 and am now thankful everyday that I depend on Him, and I quit carrying the pressure of the ‘world’ on my own shoulders.”

David Winchester

David and Julie were married in January 1991. They have been blessed with two wonderful sons, Daniel and Joshua, and a precious daughter, Sarah. David graduated from The University of Texas School of Architecture in 1992 and has been self employed as a Residential Designer for the past 8 years. Having prayed to receive Jesus Christ as his Savior at the age of 8, it was in the fall of 2002 while attending a men’s retreat, where Christ deepened his rescue of David from the wounds of his past and began the recovery of what had been lost along the way. While still learning each day to walk through this life with a deeper dependency on Christ, he believes each of us bring to whatever relationship we find ourselves in a Kingdom perspective along with the unique gifts God has given us for the ultimate purpose of revealing His Grace and Mercy to a lost world one relationship at a time.

I was blessed to be raised by Godly parents in a Christian home. I accepted Christ as my Savior at the age of 10. My walk with the Lord has always been a "work in progress". My Christian life is not about religion. It is a personal relationship with Jesus. By God's Grace, my walk and relationship with the Lord continue to grow deeper and stronger.
