Lead Pastor, Eighth Day Church
Spanning the world for years with his music ministry, and overcoming denominational walls through worship and service, Pastor David Brinson touched the heart of many pastors and congregants around the world as a leader, worship pastor, and recording artist. Amidst extensive worldwide travel with the United States Air Force, front-line ministries, and ministry requests, Brinson has shared the Gospel through song and Word in foreign countries as Korea, Canada, Cuba, Italy, and countless others. While serving in Italy, he was led to plant a ministry, and faithfully served as Senior Pastor of the Center of Praise Church of God in Christ, under the leadership of then, Elder Leon Ross (Germany Jurisdiction).
Shortly after Brinson’s release from the military - just days before the nation’s September 11th experience in 2001, Brinson accepted the invitation to serve as both Associate and
Music Pastor at New Hope International Church in Central Georgia. Having served faithfully for 11 years under, then Bishop Jeff Poole, God spoke to the heart of both David and Bishop Poole to transfer to Orlando, FL to assist Bishop Clint Brown with his Worship and Music Ministry. Brinson was able to rebuild the team into a strong and effective, cohesive team. While serving with Bishop Brown, a new movement of “Release” was birthed that reached across America and beyond the borders to draw in leaders from around the world, who were interested in experiencing the presence and new season that had began at Faith World, Orlando. It was during that season; Apostle Paula White consulted with Brown on having Brinson assist and eventually released to help her with ministry commitments in Tampa, Lakeland, and Orlando.
While serving with Apostle Paula White for over two years, she recognized eventually Pastor Brinson would be called into full-time ministry as a senior pastor. For nearly two years, she established a Pastors-in-Training team to prepare Brinson and others for the role as Senior Pastors who would be sent out as God directs. As time passed, in January 2014, Brinson began to experience a beckoning from God to return to Warner Robins, GA to serve as a Senior Pastor. Immediately, he consulted with Apostle White, and Brinson, his wife, and Apostle White joined in prayer to seek direction and instructions from God. Eight months later, Pastor Brinson and his wife, April, were ordained and sent forth to establish a new work in Warner Robins, GA, The Eighth Day Church, Inc.
On September 8, 2014, prayer and worship services commenced for the new work in Georgia. In the short time, God has sent dedicated, excited, and willing parishioners to assist in this new endeavor. Pastor Brinson and his wife are delighted to return, serve, and continue establishing the Kingdom of God in Central Georgia.
Originally, from Leesburg, FL, Pastor Brinson carries a mantle that stretches much farther than just his musical ability and influence. His passion for prayer, intercession, and mentorship has influenced scores of lives around the world. His lifestyle of worship speaks volume and has proven effective in front-line worship leaders and in raising the next generation worshippers and leaders. Brinson resides in the Warner Robins, Georgia area with his wife, April and their two thriving adult children, Khaira and Rafael.
