Pastor David McGee was born in Greensboro, North Carolina. He was born 95 percent deaf and mute. The Lord graciously healed David through nine different surgeries, and at the age of seventeen, David prayed to receive Jesus as his Savior while in the Teen Challenge program. After playing music professionally for several years, David heeded the Lord's call to devote his music and his life to serving Him. He and his wife, Nora, began Calvary Chapel of the Triad as a Bible study in their home in October 2001.
