“It is a special pleasure to speak a word for my good and long time friend, David Raley. I have known David since the beginning of his ministry. I have observed with great joy the outstanding achievements that have accompanied his life and ministry. He served as Pastor and Church Planter in Alabama with great distinction. At a District Council he was chosen to serve as Youth Ministries Director for the Alabama District. During those years he conducted very successful youth camps, conventions and many other youth activities. During his years as Youth Director he raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Speed-the-Light. Because of his leadership skills and abilities he was asked to serve in the National Office of the General Council. Because of his deep commitment to his calling God has used him with great effectiveness. May God continue to use him to bless the church.”

He has been a successful senior pastor, a district leader serving several years as Alabama District Youth Director, and a national leader with Speed The Light and Convoy of Hope. As such, he brings a wealth of experience to the pulpit and is on the cutting edge of what is happening in missions around the world; especially through the Assemblies of God. Bro. Raley is a powerful and passionate communicator who is easy to work with and a preacher’s friend. I have known him for many years and consider him not only a personal friend but a man of great character and integrity. He is versatile and adaptable to a wide variety of ministry opportunites, not the least of which would be missions services or conventions. He would be an asset to your ministry and someone you would want to invite again. I would heartily endorse him and recommend him to you.”

David I want you to know that when you preached at Men’s retreat in our state this year that my son Jeremy went to the alter and was delievered from Meth, a habit he has had for over 10 years. Not only was he delievered he has become an active member of the church and is a Youth Camp this week as a counsler. Thanks for letting God use you.

As a Light for the Lost Director, my job is to get churches and their people to give to missions. Thus, I am always looking for challenging speakers who know how motivate believers to SEE the need, SENSE God’s call, and SACRIFICE of themselves. David Raley does exactly that in an awesome, anointed way when he speaks … and he inspires people to give. David has spoken at seven events for me, and each time he brings a fresh sparkle in his eye and a youthful eagerness to share God’s truth. If you have him preach for you, expect a perfect mix of humor, conviction, and depth. I highly recommend my friend David Raley!

John W. Bechtel
