I had come to Urban Outreach in SE Washington DC in 2000 after giving my life totally over to the leading of the Holy Spirit to serve as a Missionary Associate with the Assemblies of God.  I was gradually led  into street ministry and serving soup to over 200 people in areas that are devoid of hope and full of those who were hurting and addicted and in need of the Only Answer, Jesus Christ.  An Urban Outreach Missionary came and preached at Cathy’s church and spoke of the need for help at the UO Soup Ministry.  The Lord brought Cathy and I together in October of 2002 as she came to help serve on the streets. After a time of getting to know each other we started courting and were married the following April of 2003.

 I received my ministerial credentials with New Life Fellowship in 2003.  The Lord used us for His work at Urban Outreach in Washington DC until March of 2005.  Urban Outreach and Rev. Ken Brown and UO staff taught a lifetime of missionary experiences in SE Washington DC.   We thank the Lord for the years there and being able to spread the gospel to hurting people.  Glory to His Name!

After Urban Outreach, the Lord released us on a new mission adventure.  We were led to start a church as missionaries on the Yakama Nation Indian Reservation in White Swan, Washington.  I transferred my credentials to the International Foursquare Church in 2007.  After serving under the “First Nations” (Native Americans),  District Supervisor Reverend Jeff YellowOwl in Wapato, Washington for two years, we began Sunday Services in White Swan, Washington.  In March of 2007 “Shadow of His Wings”  White Swan Foursquare Church was established.  We saw the Lord grow the church to over 30 Native, Hispanic and Caucasian members. In 2011 the Lord released us from the mission work at White Swan and returned us to Southern Maryland.  Prior to leaving we were blessed to help install a Native American pastor and co-laborers at Shadow of His Wings Church.

I was ordained with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel in March 2009 and the following year Cathy received her credentials with New Life Fellowship Inc.

 In January of 2012 after seeking God’s will for our lives and with much prayer, we felt led to attend Charles County Foursquare Church.  Pastor Bob and Gail Barth and CCFC church family opened the doors of welcome and service there. It has been an honor and blessing to serve the Lord Jesus Christ at CCFC.

Pastor Bob and Gail have moved to the Oklahoma area, Cathy and we are excited to be Interm Pastors at Charles County Foursquare Church as we pray and seek the Lord for our new Pastor.  We look with great anticipation of what the Lord is going to do in Charles County, Maryland.  Glory to His Name,  Pastors David and Cathy East

Amen!
