Guest Speaker Programs
Dave Tripiciano has become a sought after guest speaker, frequently presenting hunting and wildlife seminars at outreach events. His touching, tragic story has been heard by and inspired thousands at churches across America. His life story was also dramatized and featured as an episode of the well known Christian radio program "Unshackled” and broadcast around the world in March of 2011. There is no fee for any of his guest speaker multimedia programs.
As a self centered young man, he led a life of sin, adultery and multiple divorces while playing as a club musician. Years later, after finding his wife dying in a wrecked car, he met and married a woman who lost her husband in a plane crash. Giving up his career as a high school band director, he began to devote his life to serving God and others. Since then he has led a life so filled with blessings, "miracles" and rewarding satisfaction, one finds his amazing story hard to believe.
In the summer of 2004 he sailed a small boat from Jacksonville, Florida to Rochester, New York. Then he wrote a book about his adventure entitled: Voyage Of The Heart. His second book: The Man I Was (a detailed account of his life story) was released in the spring of 2012.
Mr. Tripiciano is an avid bow hunter, lifetime outdoorsman, sailor and the founder of "My Father's World" ministries. He is an award winning wildlife photographer, author, videographer and a New York State bow hunting instructor. His photography was included in a touring art exhibit by the national wildlife federation and his video footage has been used on TV. In addition to his two books, he has filmed, narrated and produced eight outdoor videos that are designed for outreach, entertainment and bow hunter education. These unique films and autographed copies of his books can be watched, read, and ordered on this site.
Besides his outreach ministry for men, he works as a band and instrumental music teacher in a small Christian school; and also runs a band and lesson program for home schooled students. Ten years ago he founded and now heads a non - profit organization named “Captain Dave’s Boat Cruises” for special needs children. There he uses his merchant mariner Captain's License and two large cabin cruiser / fishing boats, to give free boat rides and fishing trips to special needs, needy, at risk, handicapped and single parent children with their families and friends.
