David Akers Ministries
David became a believer at 12 years of age. He was known as the All-American type teenager. He was an athlete who lived on the straight and narrow in the World's view. Even though David is a man with a strong faith in his Lord, Jesus Christ, he was not living a life according to the way that would make him an All-American in biblical views.
Although David's faith is in the saving grace given by our Lord, he needed his personal actions to line up with his profession of faith. David realized this fact and began seeking a deeper relationship with God and asked the Holy Spirit to guide his path, so he could work on being more like Jesus. Over the last several years David has been pursuing God and trying to become the man that God has called him to be and to glorify God's Kingdom in all circumstances. David has been very vocal over the years both on and off the field about his faith in Jesus.
David has gone through several bouts of adversity in his life. Some of these issues have been professional, financial, relational and, of course, health issues as well. He believes that God will use many of these adverse situations so that he, as a believer, can learn to rely on the fact that God has a plan for us all. We need to understand that, with God, we are more than conquerers and we need to focus on the "Prize". We need to realize that we, as believers, have received the "Ultimate Victory" at the cross. The World may say we are losing in many of life's situations but God's word says we are "Winning In Spite of…" these trials and tribulations.
David is a licensed Minister who has been speaking at many faith-based events over the past several years. David wanted to get credentialed so that people didn't think he was speaking on his own Theology. He now enjoys traveling around preaching the Gospel in a relevant way that brings his testimony, football/life experiences to teach God's biblical principles on how to have the Ultimate Victory in life.
