International Speaker, evangelists, musician, pastor and author, David McGee, was born in Greensboro, North Carolina as a deaf-mute. After overcoming overwhelming physical obstacles as a child, he eventually discovered music and toured the country as a rock musician. After an encounter with Jesus Christ, he devoted his life to revealing the life-changing Truth of the Bible. From a small home Bible study to a church with an international reach, David teaches with a heart-warming and humorous style.
David McGee was born a deaf-mute. At two and a half years old, doctors discovered that he was 95 percent deaf and that his tongue was attached in front of his lower teeth. At five years old, he could not speak. Miraculously, this was corrected through nine surgeries and four years of speech therapy. He played professional while traveling as a rock band and later owned a recording studio. After Jesus changed his life, he traveled the nation teaching and playing in churches all across America. David is the founder of Cross the Bridge Radio and Television Ministries and senior pastor of The Bridge Christian Fellowship in North Carolina.
Twelve years ago, David moved his home Bible study into the public sphere. That once-small fellowship of fifteen people is now viewed nationally and internationally. During that time he also served as the assistant to the Crusade Director, Mike Brazeal, for Greg Laurie at the Harvest Crusades. David's teachings are broadcast around the world on TV, radio, and the Internet in an ever-increasing market and he has appeared on numerous television and radio shows, making appearances on ABC, CBS, CBN, FOX, NBC, TCT, and TBN. His verse-by-verse teaching through the Bible is marked by powerful personal insights, humorous teaching style, and an in-depth knowledge of the Hebrew language and customs. This style of teaching deeply impacts the lives of those who come in contact with David and his ministry. One of the things that makes this ministry so unique is David's love for God, for people, and for the Bible. David reveals the Bible as fun, exciting, and personally meaningful.
He is seen as cutting edge and culturally relevant, yet biblically solid. He has a deep respect for the Jewish roots of Christianity, demonstrated by his leading numerous extensive trips to Israel, leading Passovers, and use of the Hebrew language to tie the Old Testament and the New Testament together in a powerful and unique way. It is the passion of this man and this ministry to communicate the timeless truths of the Bible to a lost, dying, and confused world.
Evangelistic and international speaking engagements include Rome, Greece, Mexico, Canada, Germany, France, Israel, Italy, Norwich England, and Paris. David and Cross the Bridge Ministries led a team of volunteers to Miami Beach focused on discipleship and evangelistic opportunities. Most recently he had the honor to speak at a conference at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. David has authored two books. "Cross the Bridge to Life: Discover Your Adventure" helps guide believers into an active and vibrant daily Christian life. "Cross the Bridge Every Day" is a daily devotional for the whole year that guides people of all ages towards David's goal to see people in the Word of God every day.
