Bro. Overton-Hadnot is a native of Austin, Texas, and a lifelong David Chapel member. He is a Jesus-follower and servant-leader, committed to proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ in the presence of a collapsing culture. His personal vision is “to lead in all aspects of life and develop others” for the sake of the Kingdom. Bro. Overton-Hadnot’s favorite scripture is Philippians 1:6 (ESV), “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” He reminds us that God is alive and His work in and through us will never fail us if we believe in Jesus Christ.
