Snowden leads prayer at state House

Local pastor David Snowden traveled to the Tennessee State Capitol on Thursday to give the invocation and pledge for the House of Representatives.
His invitation came at the request of state Rep. Judd Matheny (47th District) and as a token of appreciation from his Calvary Worship Center congregation in celebrating his 25 years in ministry.
Snowden, 39, gave himself to the call of ministry at the age of 14, preaching his first sermon on Jan. 27, 1988. From that night, he would be invited to speak at over 180 different churches that year.
When asked to comment about his first sermon, he simply smiled and said, “Somethings just need to be forgotten. I hope I’ve gotten a little better since then.”
Those familiar with his ministry realize he has a passion for souls and a heartbeat for those less fortunate. Snowden has remained passionate through the years while preaching to thousands at major conferences, or doing Bible study with two in the back of a coffee shop.
Snowden says for him, there is only one objective. “Making a difference in one person’s life is all that matters.”
In addition to his passion for preaching, Snowden has transitioned to become bi-vocational over the past two years to become an employee at the Warren County Sheriff’s Department. He is working to get his master’s degree in Criminal Justice Administration with a concentration in correctional rehabilitation from the University of Cincinnati.
