David Bowden

Spoken word poet, author, and preacher



David Bowden is an author, speaker and spoken word poet living in Oklahoma City with his wife Meagan. While earning a degree in Bible and Biblical Languages, David worked as a pulpit minister and, subsequently, a youth minister for a small local church in Oklahoma. After graduating, he co-founded an international non-profit that gave goats to impoverished families in the Philippines. During his last few years in college, and throughout his time at the non-profit, David was traveling and speaking at different conferences, churches and events. After two years working with goats, he amicably left the non-profit to work full time as a speaker and performer. Since then, David has been extremely fortunate to be able to speak in front of hundreds of thousands of people and have his online videos viewed over four million times. David has now authored his first theology book with Thomas Nelson Publishers entitled “When God Isn’t There.” He also spends his time creating videos to share with the Church, and partnering with conferences, events and churches to create Gospel-centered messages. David serves as the Artist in Residence at Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City and is the co-founder of Kleer Series (www.kleerseries.com). He is currently getting his MDIV at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. David and his wife attend Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City where they have led a community group for the last four years.
