Pastor David Gonzalez began his faith journey when he came to Christ at 5 years old. Prior to becoming a Campus Pastor, he worked at the New Orleans Country Club in golf services for five years. He came to Celebration after walking away from God because of Hurricane Katrina. Pastor David blamed God for the disaster, but after six years of living life his own way, he felt the Holy Spirit calling him back. Within two months of attending, he became a door greeter, then auditioned for the worship band. Two years later, Pastor David became the Worship Pastor. In 2016, Patrick Eagan asked him what his next steps in ministry were and David voiced possibly being a Pastor. In August 2017, he officially became the Campus Pastor of the Lower St. Bernard Campus. Pastor David is married to his wife, Jennifer and they have three kids: Kayla, Josh, and Nate.
