When David Servant read the final results of his high-school occupational aptitude test, he chuckled. The results advised him that he was best matched for an occupation in ministry or even in entertainment. At the time, David Servant's future goal was to live in a log cabin in the wilderness and live off the land for the rest of his life.
The Lord, nevertheless, had various prepare for David. God didn't intend for him to run away from the world, but rather to play a part in changing the world-- by constructing God's kingdom. David Servant received his call to ministry throughout his (hesitant) freshman year at Penn State, and one year later was enrolled in Bible School.
Upon graduation, David and his new bride, Becky, pioneered their first church in David's hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. That was more than thirty years earlier.
Throughout the years, David Servant and Becky Servant pioneered and pastored 3 churches, all three of which were very missions-oriented.

When David was serving at his third pastorate, Jesus' words in Matthew 25-- the foretelling of the future judgment of the sheep and the goats-- caught his heart, and that birthed a transformation in his ministry. Heaven's Family was the outcome, launched in 2002.
