David Pleasant, Jr.

Senior Pastor

Pastor David served for seven and one-half years as Senior Pastor in Altha, Florida, before coming to Fort Myers in 2002 to serve Covenant Community Ministries in the same capacity. And like his father and grandmother before him he ministered within a denominational setting. Early in 2009 the Lord gave Pastor David a vision so vivid and so powerful that it would alter the course of his ministry forever, calling him to give up “everything,” including the security of denominational affiliation. CityGate Ministries was born of this vision. It would be a church of “24-7” lifestyle Christianity, not just a Sunday morning affair. And it would be a place where people could be “elevated” to the next level—a place where boundaries would be redefined.

Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.⠀

What you're going through right now has the potential to be an incredible testimony in the future. Stay close to God and allow him to carry you through whatever your circumstances might be.
