D’vante, though growing up in a Christian home, began attending Bible college without a personal relationship with Jesus. The only reason he agreed to go was he could go into the missionary aviation program, which would allow him to pursue his passion of becoming a commercial pilot. After a short time in Bible college, D’vante heard the Gospel and saw others living out a passionate relationship with Jesus. It was then that he realized his need for a savior. Not long after accepting Christ, D’vante’s passion for aviation was supplanted by a desire to share Jesus with others. This has led him to serve Christ in pastoral ministry. D’vante resides in Gig Harbor, WA and is engaged to be married to Grace in June 2019.
