David Ring was born with cerebral palsy on October 28, 1953 in Jonesboro, Arkansas. After being orphaned at an early age, David was cast about from “pillar to post.” Life seemed worse than hopeless to him until his relationship began with Jesus Christ, who taught him self respect and an acceptance of his physical challenges.
As a nationally known speaker since 1973, David shares his story with over 100,000 people each year at churches, conventions, schools and corporate events. He has been featured on numerous occasions on “The Old Time Gospel Hour” with Rev. Jerry Falwell, as well as other nationally televised programs.
David always focuses on an individual’s need to overcome personal handicaps and adversities of life. As one who has not been stifled by his physical limitations, he clearly states his challenge to everyone, “I have Cerebral Palsy – What’s your problem?” To most, physical challenges of this magnitude would prove to be a tombstone. For David Ring, his coming of age was, and remains, a milestone.
