City Scene: Shepherd’s Fold

A Night of Hope with David Ring


Few individuals have felt the crushing blows that have besieged David Ring since birth yet he has emerged victorious! Ring will be the featured speaker for an event hosted by Shepherd’s Fold, Inc., a 501(c)3, Christ-centered, faith-based re-entry ministry for men and women being released from prison. The event will be held at The Church at Brook Hills on Thursday, March 2.

Ring has a lifetime’s worth of experience in how to emerge victorious rather than victimized in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. When he was born, he was deprived of oxygen for 18 minutes and was left with cerebral palsy in the aftermath. He became an orphan when he was 14 after both of his parents died of cancer. He was passed from family to family and had nowhere to call home. He endured constant physical pain and public ridicule. After Ring surrendered his heart and life to Jesus Christ, he learned self-respect and acceptance of his physical challenges.

Ring quickly captures his audiences with his quick wit and warm personality and focuses on the need to conquer personal challenges and adversities. As someone who has not been stifled by his own physical limitations, Ring offers this challenge to everyone when he says “I have cerebral palsy… what’s your problem?” Director of Shepherd’s Fold, Jack Hausen anticipates all who hear Ring’s message will be inspired- especially the men and women served by the ministry. “They will be encouraged by this gentleman’s focus on overcoming adversity with faith,” explains Hausen. To be a part of this great evening and support Shepherd’s Fold call (205) 780-6211 or e-mail [email protected]. Dinner begins at 6:30pm followed by the program and speaker at 7pm. Tickets are $75 each or $500 for a table of 8. All donations are tax deductible and will be used to provide support for Shepherd’s Fold residents.
