Pastor W.C. Davis
Rev Davis’ gifts are wonderfully used of the Lord as he speaks with great clarity as well as simplicity, making difficult theological concepts plain to even the youngest personality and the power of the Holy Spirit, which equaled a tremendous passion and gift to share the gospel in a very real way. One of his greatest attributes is that he can touch all ethnic groups, create conversations with them, and meet them right where they are.
Rev. Davis is an able expositor of the Word of God, a prodigious worker, with kindness and courage blended in him. He is a man who never sought recognition or status for what he believes the Lord called him to do. “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel” (I Cor. 9:16). He is a servant leader under God’s authority, inspired by a sense of internal purpose, unable to get away from his calling and he responds in obedience.
Rev. W. C. Davis is a native of Bryan, Texas. Born the sixth of twelve children, he was born to Mr. Golden Davis, Sr. and Mrs. Emma Lue Davis. The theme that this family lives by is “Love Ye One Another”.
In July of 1971, Rev. Davis married the former Jody F. Collins. They have been blessed with three precious children: Carmisha, Angela and Wondame.
Rev. Davis has coached high school basketball, football and track. As the Head Coach at Manual High School in Denver, CO from 1993-1998 and as assistant Coach at Hinkley High School in Aurora, CO, Rev. Davis challenged young men to develop Christian character. In a special that aired on Channel 4 Sports, a popular sports figure declared, “He coached his members of the church and preached to his athletes.”
He was called to preach the Gospel over 20 years ago and was licensed and ordained by the late Dr. Wendell Theodore Liggins at the Zion Baptist Church in Denver, Colorado. Rev. Davis attended Bishop College in Dallas, Texas. He received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Dallas Baptist University, and continued his Master of Divinity Studies at Denver Seminary.
Good Shepherd Baptist Church called Rev. Davis as their eighth pastor in 1991. In August of 1998, Rev. Davis accepted the call to be the 16th pastor of the Historical Munger Avenue Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. In spite of God’s continuing blessings spiritually, numerically, and financially, Pastor Davis believes “It does not yet appear what can be.”
New Testament uses many metaphors to describe the preacher of the Gospel. One of the principal words is “herald”. As the steward was entrusted with a mystery so the herald is entrusted with a message from God. Rev. W. C. Davis is a herald: a man through whom it pleases Christ to speak-extolling and exalting God as the only one who can meet our needs. His preaching is intensely spiritual, but always perfectly Biblical and thoroughly practical.
