Dave McIntyre, Season Two Winner of Survival Series “Alone”, Named International Director for Set Free Ministries Heads

What does it take for the Lord to get your attention?

Dave McIntyre, better known as “Mac”, is the new International Director for Set Free Ministries. A few years ago, the Lord removed many of Mac’s life accomplishments so He could deal with underlying issues. Today, Mac helps broken people find the freedom only Christ can offer.

“The Lord has taken me full circle,” Mac says.

“I feel like the Lord took everything away, broke me down to nothing, so He could rebuild me into the current position I’m in.”

Starving, yet free

God took Mac through an “impromptu” freedom appointment while he was competing on the hit show, Alone. Edited for space, Mac describes his experience below:

I had just been through a really rough time in my life. I was a missionary for 15 years in Brazil, and that ended when my wife decided to divorce me and I ended up losing my career in missions. I ended up working here in Michigan, inspecting foreclosed homes; that company folded, and I was out of a job. That’s when Alone approached me to be on the show. 

“By the time I got to the island, I was completely reduced to nothing. My car had been totaled; I’d spent all my money on gear for the show. I remember about six days in on the island just praying, ‘Lord, you have taken everything away from me and exiled me to a rock on the north end of nowhere. The only thing I have left to lose is my life or my health.’ I was okay with it because I knew that He had taken me there.
