A night of hope with David Ring
Nationally known speaker David Ring will be speaking at 6:30 p.m. July 1 at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Williamstown. The service will focus on how to emerge victorious rather than victimized in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
Ring knows a thing or two about being victorious in the face of insurmountable odds. Born in 1953, he was deprived of oxygen for 18 minutes at birth leaving him with cerebral palsy. Orphaned at 14 after both parents died of cancer, he was cast from family to family with nowhere to call home. He endured constant physical pain, humiliating public ridicule and constant discouragement. Yet he chose to be victorious rather than be a victim.
After surrendering his heart and his life to Jesus Christ, he learned self-respect and acceptance of his physical challenges. To most, physical challenges of his magnitude would prove to be a tombstone. For Ring, this coming of age was and remains a milestone.
Although difficult at first to understand, Ring quickly captures his audiences with his quick wit and warm personality. He always focuses on an individual’s need to conquer the personal challenges to everyone. “I have Cerebral Palsy...What’s your problem?” asks Ring. Ring has authored one book and speaks to more than 100,000 people annually.
