David Gentiles is a seasoned and trusted worship leader, songwriter, and pastor who has served in full time gospel ministry for over 20 years. With a rich family heritage of music ministry David has been fortunate to have been singing for over 30 years in churches, national, state, and regional conferences and events, and has toured extensively in the Texas / Southern region of the United States. In 2013 David was awarded the Male Vocalist, Male Artist/Writer, and Songwriter awards from the Gospel Music Association’s Immerse Conference. This was the first time a contestant had won all three eligible categories in its history. David’s songs have been recorded by People & Songs, The Emerging Sound, Jaci Velasquez, Sean Carter, Magen Thurman, Kevin Jones, Jordan Merritt, and featured by GMA, CCLI, Worship Leader Magazine’s Song Discovery, LifeWay Worship, and the SBC’s International Mission Board.
He is currently a artist/writer with People & Songs and a worship leader at First Baptist Church Friendswood, Tx.
David’s ministry pours from a warm zeal for the people and presence of God and how liturgically the bride of Christ can sense, experience, and share the personal and eternal truths of Jesus Christ with a broken and hurting world. Anyone who has been under his leadership would describe him as pastoral, passionate, and pure in his motivation to shepherd the church as she seeks the Lord while He may be found.
He and his wife Emily have foster to adopted two precious children from their hometown, Houston, Texas. Their hearts have been captured by God’s affection for the fatherless. God has answered their prayer as they have been given the privilege of loving and shepherding these gifts from God. Their hope is that as God has enriched their lives through caring for the orphan, others might hear their story and seek to do the same.
