The Nelons, Evangelist David Ring, Four Calvary and One Heart to perform

Published: Friday, July 5, 2013 at 11:05 AM.

"The Nelons are just fantastic and the video is STELLAR," commented Larry Gatlin. "Add to that the honor of being asked to collaborate with two iconic writers like Bill & Gloria Gaither – especially Gloria – well, I am greatly blessed and highly favored! 

Also, The Nelons recently received word that the radio single "Excuse Me, Are You Jesus?" will be the NUMBER ONE song for the month of August in The Christian Voice Magazine.

Nationally known speaker, David Ring, will be speaking at the Bonifay sing.  Born in Jonesboro, Arkansas, David was deprived of oxygen for 18 minutes at birth leaving him with cerebral palsy. Orphaned at the age of 14 after both parents died of cancer, he was cast from family to family with nowhere to call home. He endured constant physical pain, humiliating public ridicule and constant discouragement. Yet he chose to be victorious rather than a victim.

After surrendering his heart and life to Jesus Christ, he learned self-respect and acceptance of his physical challenges. To most, physical challenges of this magnitude would prove to be a tombstone. For David Ring, this coming of age was and remains a milestone.

Although difficult at first to understand, Ring quickly captures his audiences with his quick wit and warm personality. He always focuses on an individual’s need to conquer the personal challenges and adversities of life. As one who has not been stifled by his physical limitations, he clearly states his challenge to everyone. “I have Cerebral Palsy…what’s your problem?” asks Ring.

David shares his story with over 100,000 people each year at churches, conventions, schools and corporate events. He has been featured on numerous occasions on several nationally televised programs. 

David’s book Just As I Am, tells about his heartaches and victories, and addresses the central theme of his life: “Triumph Over Odds.”

David and his wife, Karen, make their home in Nashville, Tennessee. They are the parents of four children, April, Ashley, Nathan and Amy Joy.
