Personal History:
1 Peter 5:2-3, “Shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock.”
 
Pastor David Corrente was born in Wallaceburg, ON and grew up in Chatham, ON. He met his wife Chelsea in high school in 1999 and they were married in 2005. They have four children Noah, Levi, Simeon and Greta-Lyn. They moved in June of 2015 to pastor Church on 99 and long to see Christ lived out in the church and the gospel proclaimed here in Squamish. June 14th, 2015 was the first Sunday leading Church on 99. The call to ministry began in 2009 in the midst of a possible career change. He studied through Liberty University Online for his undergraduate with a Bachelors of Science in Religion. He then graduated with a Masters of Divinity from The Expositors Seminary in Jupiter, Florida. David came into contact with Church on 99 through a ministry called Grace Advance connected with Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California.

 

Personal Testimony In Christ:
Galatians 2:20, "I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me."
 

I was raised in a biblically faithful church hearing the gospel for much of my childhood. The foundation of the gospel was clear and solid. However, as I grew knowing my life would have to change because of the gospel I rejected it. I believed the lie that an athletic career would fulfill the desires that I could only find in the gospel. In 2004, saying that I was a believer in Christ went to a movie called “The Passion of the Christ.” It was at this time where I was convicted of my sin and repented turning to the Lord Jesus Christ to save me. From that time, the Lord has been gracious to plant me in faithful churches to continue to grow in His grace. This placed a desire in me to reciprocate what those churches have done in my life. This set the course for the Lord to reveal desires in my heart for the ministry.
