Apostle David J. Talbott, age 67, of West Palm Beach, Florida, formerly of Youngstown, Ohio, transitioned on February 4, 2021 from his earthly clothes to his heavenly garments.
David was born on November 17, 1953 to Charles William Talbott and Mattie Bell Gooch-Talbott of Youngstown, Ohio. David and Margaret "Denise" Wright were wedded in holy matrimony on July 19, 1974. In their forty-eight blessed years of marriage, two children were born, Sharon Elaine and Aaron J. Talbott. David was a 1972 graduate of Rayen High School and had been employed at Youngstown Sheet and Tube, Head Start, IWC, and Exal Corporation.
In the early 1990’s while attending Ebenezer Church of God in Christ, David served as Deacon/Minister in training under the late Elder Calvin E. Kirkland. David and his family later transitioned for a season to Christian Fellowship Tabernacle (CFT) under the pastorate of Apostle Philip J. Imler where David continued in preparation for the ministry. Upon the closing of CFT, David and his family returned to Ebenezer Church of God in Christ under Pastor Ernest Walker.
In 2008, David and his wife, Denise, after a three day revival in their home and by the laying on of hands by the late Apostles Dontonio and Patricia Wells of Chicago, Illinois birthed their own ministry, Hands of Faith. In 2009, Hands of Faith Ministry was led to join with the late Apostle John Terry Allen, Senior Pastor of the Sword of the Lord where Apostle David taught, preached, and exhorted, with an excitement that was electrifying and would have you on your feet exalting and praising the name of Jesus. Apostles Talbott in their desire to be truly planted where God wanted them and through prayer heard, answered a clarion call of the Lord to go to West Palm Beach, Florida to fulfill their assignment, where they fed and clothed the homeless, and ministered the Word of God. Apostle David’s favorite scripture was Psalm 91: He that dwells in the secret place of the Lord most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in Him will I trust.
He leaves to continue the apostolic mandate his wife, Apostle Denise, and his children, Evangelist Sharon of West Palm Beach, Florida and Apostle Aaron J. (Tawana) Talbott of Duluth, Georgia. He leaves to cherish his memory his three sisters, Judy (Tom) Moncrief, Gerry Hopkins, and Sheila Talbott, all of Youngstown; six grandchildren; and a host of nieces and nephews, friends, and associates.
Preceding him in death were his parents, Charles and Mattie Talbott, and niece, Leslie Roxanne Lawson.
