David and Elizabeth Wilt …. Church Planters to the Inner Cities of the USA
My wife Elizabeth and I were married in July 4, 2008 and have one child, Hezekiah. We are answering the call of God to start a Bible believing, Bible preaching, independent Baptist church in the St. George area of Staten Island, New York.
I praise the Lord for saving me and I know He will guide me and enable me as I serve Him for His glory. During my earlier years of schooling, I learned many worldly and Godless styles of life, which influenced me toward a period of rebellion. Thinking that I was saved yet not truly knowing the Lord, I was not able to be at peace concerning my own salvation. Desiring to preach the Word of God, I sought training at Ambassador Baptist College. It was at this time, September 30, 2004, that I repented of my sinfulness and received Christ as my personal Savior. I was baptized at my home church the following summer. The Lord has given me a burden to plant churches in the inner cities of the U.S. I plan to do this faithfully by His grace until I see Him at His coming or in glory.
I was born and reared in a Christian environment and attended a Christian school my entire education. I pretended to be a Christian until I was thirteen. Finally realizing that I needed Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, I asked Him into my heart on September 13th, 1998, and then was baptized the following service. Since then, I surrendered my life to serve Christ for full-time service and God led me to Ambassador Baptist College for my training. There I met my husband and God has directed us to plant churches in the U.S. beginning with Staten Island, New York. I praise the Lord for all that He has done in my life and for what He will do in the lives of others as we serve Him.
I completed my formal Bible training at Ambassador Baptist College in Lattimore, North Carolina. I received a degree in Pastoral Theology in May of 2010. My wife completed the requirements for two degrees, receiving a Church Ministries and an Elementary Education degree. We were able to serve at our sending church, Tri-City Baptist Church for two years before God put a desire for our family to pursue His will to start a church in Staten Island.
My desire is that your heart be open to the Bible and open to examining your relationship with the God Who loves you. The Lord has a plan and purpose for everyone in this life. Our supreme desire is that we can serve you in any way we can.
