Candidate Biography

From candidate Facebook page

Pastor David D. King, a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has maintained and fulfills his long time passion for making a difference within the very community in which he resides. He began his journey of social servitude shortly after high school. Beginning in 1979, David became a “neighborhood security aid”, patrolling the city neighborhoods and assisting with the needs of the elderly. In 1983, he began managing “million dollar restaurants”, which he provided jobs to those who had previous difficulty in finding employment. In 1994, David heard the powerful word of God and followed His calling by relocating to Meridian, Georgia. Upon his arrival he assisted the Ministry by implementing a Youth Center. Thereafter, in 1996, Pastor King repositioned himself back to Milwaukee and established a prison ministry, with the goal to rehabilitate the prison inmates. From 1997 to 1999, David managed a Transitional Living Facility for men entitled the “Mountain of the Lord House”, this program offered counseling, social assistance, and spiritual guidance to inmates, drug addicts, and homeless men. Urged by his passion for this nature of ministry, he also founded a Transitional Home for Single Mothers called “The Lord House of Rest”. This facility was designed to cultivate single mothers in order to become spiritually strong, sound and maintain socio-economical independence. During the same time frame, in 1998, David founded “Win a Soul Ministries”. This is a place where individuals can come as they are seeking the powerful word of God. In 2001, he founded S.W.E.E.P. (Soldiers, Walking, Evangelizing, and Empowering, People) Community Justice Center, which in the first year of operation placed over two hundred individuals in employment and secured housing for over one hundred individuals. In 2007 Milwaukee God Squad was birthed, this community organization has impacted and has encompassed an even greater impact on the city.
