Candidate Biography

From candidate website

David D. King, a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, maintains and fulfills his life-long passion for making a difference in his community.

David began his journey of service to his community shortly after high school. Beginning in 1979, he became a “neighborhood security aid,” patrolling the city neighborhoods and assisting with the needs of the elderly.  In 1983, he began managing restaurants, each of which generated more than $1 million in annual revenue, and through which he provided jobs to those who had 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 there by starting a Youth Center.

In 1996, Pastor David King moved back to Milwaukee and established a prison ministry, with the goal of rehabilitating prison inmates.  From 1997 to 1999, David managed a Transitional Living Facility for men called “The Mountain of the Lord House,” a program that offered counseling, social assistance, and spiritual guidance to inmates, drug addicts, and homeless men.  Urged on by his passion for ministry to the members of the community most in need, he also founded a Transitional Home for Single Mothers called “The Lord’s House of Rest.” This facility was designed to assist single mothers in their quest to become spiritually strong and sound, and maintain personal socio-economic independence.

In 1998, David founded “Win a Soul Ministries,” a place where individuals can come for encouragement as they seek the powerful word of God.  In 2001, he founded the “S.W.E.E.P. (Soldiers, Walking, Evangelizing, and Empowering People) Community Justice Center,” which in its first year of operation found jobs for over two hundred people, and secured housing for over one hundred.  In 2007, he started the “Milwaukee God Squad,” a community improvement organization with ten areas of emphasis, each with a different focus, so that the talents and interests of volunteers can be matched with the needs of the community.
