In Discovering David's Destiny, Dr. Winters uses every facet of King David's life to demonstrate God's grace and mercy, taking this Old Testament story of one man's journey through life and making it applicable to every human being who seeks an encounter with God. He makes David and the Old Testament cast around him come alive, and gleans from their lives insightful lessons for God's people today. While this is an Old Testament story, there is nothing "old" about Dr. Winters' commentary. It's as fresh and modern as today's news; and he never balks at telling it like it is. After reading this book, you will never again look at the story of David as you did.

Timothy J. Winters was called to ministry in 1969 and ordained in 1971. He was called to Bayview in June 1973. Under his leadership and ministry, Bayview has grown from a membership of less than 60 families that met in a converted three-bedroom house, to a vibrant, thriving, and growing congregation of over 2,500. The church edifice is now a multi-level, multi-purpose building that accommodates an audience of 1,200. Pastor Winters' ministry is highlighted by two churches that were: "planted" through his visionary leadership. They are both now thriving independent congregations. The 40,000 square foot Martin Luther King, Jr. Christian Center was completed in May 1995 to accommodate Bayview's ever-expanding Christian Education ministry, and to meet the needs of the community. It houses Nubia Leadership Academy, the first church-based Charter School in California. Nubia began in September 1997 with an enrollment of 170 students in Grades K-5. The next grade level will be added each year.
