Born on February 1st 1973, in Clarendon, Jamaica, Prophet Dave Osbourne is a devout man of God that is dedicated to be a Kingdom agent and assist others in realizing their divine purpose.
At the tender age of five (5), Prophet Dave started singing and making music on the bottom of his mother’s cheese pans. He also had a passion for reciting poems that his mother taught him for church functions. At the age of six, Prophet Dave had the opportunity then to sing for open functions at Church of God Ground of Truth and Rest All Age School. His mother took ill shortly thereafter and his father who was an alcoholic was absent from his life. As a result, his next door neighbor “Starky” became his guardian. As a little boy, Prophet Dave was heavily influenced by Starky who did everything for him. He vividly remembered when he told him, “Boy you have great talent in singing and performing.” Starky then became a pivotal person in Prophet Dave’s life and a source of constant encouragement. Starky’s desire to help him improve on his raw talent and skills, led to Starky assuming the role of teacher.
The very first song Starky taught him was ‘me love in a me heart just boil up for she’. Having mastered this song, Starky took him out one evening, placed him on top of a bucket which served as his stage. That night little Dave sang his belly out. The crowd loved it and could not stop shouting, “sing little D, sing”. Prophet Dave continued to sing for those little gatherings and his singing improved overtime.
As years passed by, life became more difficult forcing Dave’s mother to grant custody of her children to strangers, since she could not care for them anymore. The strangers mistreated and abused Dave and his siblings. Eventually, Prophet Dave and his brother ran away to Kingston to live with their uncle. There he met Barry G and Bammi Man. Barry G took Prophet Dave with him to sing.
Music was not booming as he wanted, so Prophet Dave looked towards finding other means to make a living. One year he decided to enter to the Tastee Talent Contest and also looked for other line of work.
Luckily, he won the contest that year, Prophet Dave was elated and things started looking up. He signed up for other pop and variety festival shows and even tried securing a recording deal. Prophet Dave appeared on All Star Nanny Goat Album. His track charted #1 and #2 throughout the Caribbean, paving the way for him to travel throughout the region and resulting in him migrating to the island of St. Kitts in the Eastern Caribbean.
Nonetheless, Prophet Dave soon realized that this was not the purpose God had for him. In May 2009, his life took an entirely new meaning when he surrendered his heart and life to Jesus Christ in a revival crusade. From that day onwards he has been walking with Jesus and serving in full time ministry.
He established and currently oversees Dave Osbourne Ministries. He is also the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Junior Osbourne Music. He is a recording artist known as “Devil Trampler”.
Prophet Dave Osbourne obtained a certificate in ministerial studies from the Ministry Training Institute in Jamaica. He is an ordained Prophet serving in his local church International Deliverance Center under the leadership of Bishop Errol Hall. Prophet Dave Osbourne has a strong prophetic and deliverance anointing and is also a revelatory preacher and teacher of the word. His passion is to see men freed from the power of hell and bondage.
Prophet Dave believes that God has raised him up with the Isaiah 61:1 mandate:
“The spirit of the lord is upon me; because the lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound”.
He truly believes seeing and bringing out the best in people and is committed to helping them discover how they can reign in this life through the abundance of grace and walking in freedom. Prophet Dave travels extensively around the world transforming many lives, setting people free from the heavy yoke of bondage, guilt and condemnation by pointing them to Jesus and His finished work at Calvary.
He is married to Folashade Osbourne who is also in ministry. They reside on the island of St. Kitts and share four wonderful children Nickemo, Marlando, Daivique and Olamide.
