David Edwards was born and raised in Southern California . As a young child, he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. At the age of five years old God spoke to his heart about serving in the ministry. However, as he grew older he began living his life recklessly.
But at the age of twenty-one he was tired of living an empty life and recognized that the Lord was drawing him back into fellowship. He surrendered his life to Jesus and two years later he attended Rhema Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow , Oklahoma .
Upon completion, David returned to Southern California and served in ministry as an Associate Pastor for seventeen years, fifteen of which he served as a Youth Pastor. In 2003, God began preparing David for a change in the ministry. In 2006, he moved to Mesa , Arizona to start Christ To The Nations Church.
