You won’t want to miss today’s “Marcus and Joni”, with special guest David Turner!
David Turner was born in Miami, Florida, USA. His early years were marked by a variety of personal trials. At the age of one his father left and by his third birthday David found himself in a new relationship with a stepfather who was a Christian leader, teaching on Sunday and pouring his anger out on the family during the week. He worked most of the teenage years, saving money and honing entrepreneurial skills, escaping the trials of his childhood through intense focus and personal discipline. David graduated high school after 11th grade, leaving early for college on an Advanced Placement Program. He finished college with a Business Management degree after two years. At the age of 19, David driven to be a success, poured himself into a restaurant business. Over the next 20 years he built two other companies from start-up to over 100 million in sales. During his 20’s, although he appeared to be a success by all worldly measurements, personal trauma drove David back to church in an effort to seek some peace in his life. He received Jesus as his Lord and Savior one year later and a new journey began. Determined not to repeat his stepfather’s hypocrisy, he tried his best to live a good Christian life and to apply the principles of integrity in follow the Lord to the best of his ability. That all changed in November, of 2003. Driven by a desire to help make a difference in the lives of his employees, David started an office Bible study. He invited a Pastor to speak each week and while he sat under the teaching his eyes where opened to the living power of the Holy Spirit. In December 2003 David told his wife, Jennifer, “I believe God wants to do something with my life but it seems as if something is holding me back. I believe it is my past. “Jennifer suggested that David go to see this Pastor. Four weeks later he went to see this Pastor to dredge up the all of the things of his past. His pastor had a different suggestion and began reviewing scripture that was centered on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
David did not fully understand how that was going to change the weight of his past, but expressed a desire to want everything that God had for him and a deeper more personal relationship with Jesus. That day in prayer he received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and his life was never the same. During the prayer the Pastor asked, “What do you know about healing?” David answered, “I know it happened in the Bible.” “It happens today,” replied his Pastor. “I’ll believe it when I see it,” laughed David. The Pastor responded, “You won’t just see it, you’ll do it!” David responded, “Why don’t I just see it first and we’ll talk about doing it later?” Within one-week of the prayer Jesus began to do miracle healings through David’s life. In the first year over 80 people were healed. In God’s faithfulness and perfect timing, He sent Brother Harry Gomes to help with mentorship. Through the power and provision of God David travels internationally doing crusades, sharing the Gospel and praying for the sick. When David prays Jesus continues to heal tens of thousands, those born blind see, those who are paralyzed walk and those being tormented find peace. The miracles and healings continue to bring the good news of a living Jesus to the lost, lonely and weak throughout the world. David has given his heart to Jesus and he will never be the same!
David is supported in Ministry by his wife Jennifer and his two children Jessica and Christopher. Jennifer is a constant support both on stage and off at David’s meetings and has been an inspiration in teaching the families of those called into ministry.
