IMD Interactive is excited to announce the hiring of Rev. David Ely, our new Director of Ministry. David’s hire increases our capacity to take God’s Word to the next generation!
Rev. Ely is a native of Alabama and a graduate of Auburn University (2006) and Covenant Theological Seminary (2012). Rev. Ely has over 10 years of experience in development, fundraising and ordained ministry. Before beginning his work at IMD Interactive, Rev. Ely served as High School Bible teacher (Old Testament) at Briarwood Christian School, where he developed educational programs, classroom curriculum, and provided students with a firm grasp of Christian principles. Rev. Ely’s previous ministry experience also includes time with Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) as the Furman University Campus Minister in Greenville, SC, and as the Youth Pastor at Westminster Presbyterian Church near Augusta, GA.
IMD Interactive President Drayton Cosby stated that Rev. Ely brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to further IMD’s mission to equip future generations with God’s Word and enhance our ability to serve the Church.
“Rev. Ely will help us in a variety of ways,” said Cosby,” He has a proven track record of advancing the kingdom, he has a passion for engaging younger generations to the Bible and gives us the unique perspective we need to improve outreach”.
“This is a God-ordained opportunity for me personally and professionally to work with a group like IMD whose heart and passion is Kingdom impact locally and even throughout the world, “said Ely, “As a husband and father of four, I look forward to serving our churches and parents in particular in providing the opportunity to engage in God’s grand Story in such a unique and personal way”.
#GivingTuesday is a day that encourages people to give back however they can. It’s a day where nonprofit organizations take the opportunity to raise more money than they would on an average day, which is why many organizations create special campaigns to participate in this day of giving.
IMD Interactive would like to take this opportunity to campaign on giving to others this Christmas season and would appreciate you helping us “spread The Word” to family, friends, and churches.
IMD is focused on delivering the Bible in a new way, which is creating a gamified roadmap to scriptural engagement. The first destination of our journey began on 9/22 with the Steam platform launch of The Anointed: David Saves Keilah and we are excited to announce that DSK has been played by gamers in over 30 countries. Now, we are focusing our efforts on raising awareness to the local church.
Please consider passing along our contact page to youth pastors, interested in innovating and reaching future generations. They can find out more at our Church Resources page.
