David Davis


David Davis was the Founder of Carmel Congregation (“Kehilat HaCarmel”) on Mount Carmel, Israel, where he served as Senior Pastor for 25 years, and his wife Karen continues to serve as Worship Director. The Davises also established the House of Victory men’s rehabilitation center in Haifa.  The vision for these ministries is Jews and Arabs joined together as the “one new man” of Ephesians 2:15.

David Davis held an M.A. from the University of Maryland, and a Ph.D. from Wayne State University.  Dr. Davis was the Chairman of the Division of Arts of Fordham University at Lincoln Center, New York City, while also working as a professional actor on Broadway, off-Broadway and television. In the mid-80’s in the midst of a successful acting career, he had a dramatic encounter with the Lord in a revival among performing artists in New York, where he also met his Jewish wife, Karen. He was soon called into ministry and began working with addicts and homeless people under the mentoring of David Wilkerson at Times Square Church, NYC. He was ordained with World Challenge International Ministers Fellowship. In 1989 the Davises immigrated and became citizens of Israel where they live permanently. 

Dr. Davis is the author of the book, The Road to Carmel, which chronicles his journey from the world of show business on Broadway to the establishing of ministries on Mount Carmel.  His most recent book, The Elijah Legacy, deals with Israel, Islam and the Church in the last days. He also ministered extensively in the nations as a conference speaker.
