Welcoming the Reverend Maury Davis

Location: Washington, DC


(Mr. COOPER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.)

Mr. COOPER. Mr. Speaker, we welcome today Pastor Maury Davis, who delivered our prayer.

Pastor Davis was arrested at age 18 for the crime of first-degree murder. Following his trial and conviction, he served 8½ years in the Texas Department of Corrections. During his incarceration, Maury found his Savior in Jesus Christ and led a revival among his fellow prisoners.

Following his unexpected release from prison, Maury served on the pastoral staff of Calvary Temple in Irving, Texas, under the leadership of Dr. J. Don George where he served as the Youth Pastor. There he met and married his wife, Gail, and in 1986 they became the parents of triplets, Gabrielle, Danielle and Galen. In 1994 their son, Dillon, was added to their family.

After 5 years at Calvary Temple, Maury answered the call to full-time evangelism and the young family traveled across the United States preaching in churches, youth camps, Bible schools and speaking to teens in public schools.

In 1991, after preaching one Sunday at the 250-member Cornerstone Church in Madison, Tennessee, Maury was offered the position of Senior Pastor. He accepted that appointment and has led Cornerstone to its current average attendance of 2,200 people every Sunday. He is also serving as an Executive Presbyter of the Tennessee District of the Assemblies of God.

We welcome Pastor Maury Davis to the House of Representatives today.
