Here is a little more about me and my family.


I was converted to Christ as a young man and answered the call to the gospel ministry in 2004. Since 2004 I have ministered alongside pastors, missionaries, and church planters abroad and among the Native tribes of North America. I am serving as an elder at Heritage Baptist Church, Mansfield, TX and working toward planting a church in Oklahoma.

Bane Family

My wife Lydia and I have been married since 2010, and we have five children: Rob, Chloe, Ben, Anna, and Marshall.

In 2007 I graduated from Georgia Baptist College (B.A. in Pastoral Studies) and in 2023 completed the MDiv at IRBS.


Here is a brief overview of the ministry until now:

1997-2010 (Beginnings)

  • 1997: God graciously delivered from a dead profession to living faith in Christ (age 13).
  • 2004: Called to the gospel ministry (age 20), as recognized and affirmed by the church where I was a member.
  • 2007: Graduated from Georgia Baptist College (Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Studies).
  • 2004-2012: The Lord opened doors for me to minister:
    • among several North American tribes.
    • in street preaching ministry across the U.S.
    • alongside missionaries in about 12 different countries.
  • 2010: Lydia and I were married.

2012-2020 (Native American Missions)

  • 2012: We helped for 7 months with a church plant in a Yupik Eskimo village in Alaska.
  • 2013-2014: We relocated from our home in North Carolina to base in Oklahoma among the 39 tribes.
    • David was ordained and sent by Big Cove Baptist Church, Cherokee, North Carolina.
    • Worked in evangelistic meetings among the tribes in all main sectors of Oklahoma, working toward an open door for a church plant.
    • Developed and began teaching a one year series of monthly modules designed to assist men in the ministry.
  • 2015-2020:
    • After an evangelistic meeting on the Comanche Nation tribal complex near Lawton, Oklahoma, we relocated to base among the Comanche Nation and surrounding tribes (Western Oklahoma).
    • In September 2015, with the help of Mike Styres, I planted what came to be Covenant Baptist Church (Lawton, OK).


In late 2020 we moved to Texas, where I completed my MDiv at IRBS in late 2023. I am currently serving as an elder at Heritage Baptist Church (Mansfield, TX) and doing groundwork toward planting a church in the Oklahoma City area.

Future Plans

My hope is to plant a church in Oklahoma.
