Kenton David was born and raised on the beautiful island of Dominica before he migrated to the United States, at the age of 9. He has lovingly called Miller Evangelical Christian Union Church, home, since then.
Kenton currently serves as both the Assistant Music Minister and Music Director; positions he has held since 2007, but his love for music developed much earlier. Back in Dominica, Kenton learned to sing from his Sunday School and Children’s Choir Director, Sis Prince. In his youth, he learned to play drums and even learned to play the piano when he served as a member of one of Miller’s musical groups, Gospel Proclaimers.
Despite growing up in church, Kenton felt he never really understood God, as a child. He knew what he read in the Bible and what was taught to him in Sunday School, but it wasn’t until he explored his creativity, through music, that he truly began to understand God for himself. For Kenton, music was the language that helped him to communicate with God. It was this communication that allowed him to explore his love for music further, by singing in the youth choir as a teen, the Gospel Choir as an adult, playing drums, brass and wind instruments, and eventually becoming a worship leader at the age of 16.
His passion for God, music, and creative arts grew increasingly over the years and he has been fortunate to be able to serve in other creative capacities. One such opportunity was as a founding member of the Miller Silent Messengers mime ministry, a ministry he shared with his brothers. Being a part of this creative ministry allowed Kenton to continue to grow and mature in his faith. He counts this as one of the turning points that has shaped his relationship with God and allowed him to connect with God on a deeper level.
Kenton went from knowing about God through reading the Bible and following the traditional customs of the church to experiencing God transforming him from the inside.
Through every obstacle and triumph, he has ever faced, Proverbs 23:26 constantly reminds Kenton "my son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe my ways.” This scripture teaches him, that the God he serves is intentional about His love for him, and in return, Kenton has learned and is still striving to be very intentional about his love and desire to serve God in every note he plays and in every word he sings.
Kenton has been married to his wife, Min. Rachel David, or as he refers to her, the better version of himself, since 2011. They are the parents of two wonderful and energetic children that they lovingly raise to know God for themselves.
