Introducing David Graham

In early January of 1973, after serving as a youth pastor in Southern California, David Graham, his wife, Kathy, and their young family moved to the Flathead Valley of Northwest Montana. Prompted by a detailed dream to see masses of young people trained to take the gospel message around the world, David and his family arrived in Montana in a twenty-one-year old car, with no place to live, no job, and less than five hundred dollars. Soon after arriving, David accepted a position as assistant pastor at the Little Brown Church in Bigfork. Later, in the role of associate pastor, he helped start New Covenant Fellowship in Kalispell.

Twelve years after the dream, David, as founding director, helped launch Youth With A Mission of Montana in Lakeside. For more than twenty-five years now, YWAM Montana has trained thousands of youth (of all ages) from the U.S. and many other countries and sent them out to impact the nations.  

In 1990, David began speaking in churches, seminars, and other venues across North America, bringing a passionate, powerful, and timeless message about the ultimate Parent—Father God—and the significance and purpose of his honored sons and daughters. This same message resonates in his book, They Ride White Horses: The End of the Search for Significance.

David is also the author of a number of praise and worship songs, including “In Moments Like These,” which is sung around the world and in many languages.

David and his wife, Kathy, still live in the Flathead Valley. They spend most of their free time with their four kids and their spouses, and ten grandkids.
