David Williams  encouraged his girlfriend to have an abortion when he was 19 and had no idea how devastating that decision would be. At 26, he came to know Jesus Christ and God has brought forgiveness, healing and redemption to David's life. As a result, God has given David a heart to be actively involved in speaking up for the unborn, to counsel men whose partners seek help during pregnancy and also to counsel men after their partners have had an abortion. David partners with Cornerstone Pregnancy Center  in Orlando, Florida, and hopes to build new partnerships between PRCs, local churches and campus ministries in Orlando and beyond.

David has been in full-time ministry since 1999. He spent 10 years on staff full-time with Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ). During the majority of his time on staff, he served as a campus minister in Northeast Ohio and as a traveling speaker. He also served one season as a chaplain for the Cincinnati Bengals organization. 

In addition to his involvement in the Pro-Life movement, David currently serves as a traveling speaker, ministers to college students at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando and is a commissioned member of Global Service Associates (GSA). David and his wife Terea* have been married since 2001. They have four children: Selah (10), Kaela (9), David Jr. (6) and Joseph Daniel (3). David also has a son Sukari (19) who lives in Pittsburgh, PA. David and his family currently live in Orlando, Florida.
