About David Bryant – David Bryant Book
 

David Bryant:
Meet the Man Behind the Message

Over the past 40 years, David Bryant has been defined as a “messenger of hope” and a “Christ proclaimer” to the Church throughout the world.

Formerly a pastor, minister-at-large with the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, president of Concerts of Prayer International (COPI), and chairman of America’s National Prayer Committee, today David provides leadership to Proclaim Hope! whose mission is to foster and serve a nationwide Christ-awakening movement.

For decades, David played a widely visible role in the emergence of an unprecedented, worldwide prayer movement by building on citywide mass prayer rallies; organizing national and international conferences; creating training videos, seminars, and manuals; developing leadership coalitions; mentoring of younger leaders; and sharing his message by radio, television, and podcasts.

Among his writings, six books are key:

Christ Is NOW! 7 Groundbreaking Keys to Help You Explore and Experience the Spectacular Supremacy of God’s Son Today

Christ Is ALL! Join in the Joyful Awakening to the Supremacy of God’s Son (revised)

In the Gap: What It Means to Be a World Christian

With Concerts of Prayer: Christians United for Spiritual Awakening and World Evangelization

The Hope at Hand: National and World Revival for the 21st Century

Messengers of Hope: Becoming Agents of Revival for the 21st Century

All these books are featured at DavidBryantBooks.com.

Since 2010, David has pursued an ambitious outreach to encourage a nationwide Christ Awakening movement, which is defined as “The whole Church becoming wholly alive to the whole vision of the whole Christ.”

To strengthen this movement, David has created an in-depth learning experience called The Christ Institutes (TCI). The goal of its extensive teaching is to help Christians gain a much larger vision of who Jesus is right now—what he’s doing, where he’s headed, and how believers are transformed by living in the fullness of his supremacy.

TCI has been professionally filmed and is now offered online at no charge as a nine-session course called The Christ Institutes Video Series (TCIVS). A follow-up companion to the TCI course is Christ Is ALL! (over 500,000 Mandarin versions alone are being used to train Chinese church leaders).

As another way to foster Christ Awakening movements, David and his team have spearheaded the first-ever website of its kind, ChristNow.com. There’s nothing else like it anywhere on the web today.

ChristNow.com provides a central hub for ever-expanding, free resources from every stream of the Church. It offers teaching and worship videos on many aspects of Christ’s glory and reign, video testimonies about personal awakenings to Christ, regular blog posts and audio devotions on our Lord’s reigning majesty—and so much more. For example, there’s a free, nine-week daily email and video series to guide Christians in spending a few minutes a day focused on growing a larger vision of Christ.

Every day the impact of ChristNow.com reaches a growing number of followers across the nation and globe through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as the free ChristNow app.

Recently, New Providence Publishers published David’s “magnum opus,” Christ Is NOW! Incorporating decades of research, this 640-page hardback is enlivened with full-color graphics and over 125 photos throughout. What makes the book so unique is its express purpose of helping readers explore and experience in new ways the supremacy of Christ and who he is today. As its front cover tagline puts it: “Meet Him Again for the First Time!”

David and his wife, Robyne, were high school sweethearts in their hometown of Massillon, Ohio. They now call metropolitan New York City their home. Their three grown children, Adam, Bethany, and Benjamin, were adopted as infants from India.

Endorsements for David and TCI

I am deeply grateful that our loving Lord has called and anointed our brother, David Bryant, for a very special and strategic ministry of proclaiming Christ and His supremacy to the Church in the United States and beyond. He has given his life wholly and passionately to this great and vitally significant mission. I highly commend to you David Bryant and The Christ Institutes.

David Bryant’s message on the Supremacy of Christ comes at an important juncture in American and world history. We need this transcendent view of Jesus to interpret and navigate the ocean of uncertainty in our world today.

Dr. Mac Pier

CEO, The NYC Leadership Center, New York City

In the last decade one person has been most used by God in my life to lift up the supremacy of Christ as Lord. That person is DavidBryant. He has done so through his passion and faith in Christ, shared through personal conversations, strategic planning events, seminars, books and now by Christ Is NOW! Through David, God has provided special resources for our individual nurture, congregational renewal, and Kingdom of God transformation. Jesus is supreme and Lord. It is time for an awakening to Christ within us and among all of God’s people.

Dr. Jerry Kirk

Never has there been more urgency in our land for a God-given awakening to Christ. David Bryant’s proclamation of hope in Christ is on God’s heart for this hour. His vision of the full extent of Christ’s supremacy can bring the Body of Christ together in powerfully transforming ways. We believe his message is exactly what’s needed at this critical moment in America.

from An Open Letter to the Church from 70 Christian Leaders

The time has come to do whatever it takes to magnify in new ways the exalted place of God’s Son among our people, in our ministries and throughout the land. There is no greater hope for the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom within our cities. David’s teachings are a powerful way for us to move forward together.

I first encountered a serious challenge in my life when I met David Bryant and read Christ is All! in 2008. Since that time I have transitioned our company from the Dallas metropolitan area to a small rural town in southeastern Colorado. The impact of CIA and David’s passion for the supremacy of Christ led us to host David’s The Christ Institute here. The time we spent together exploring the depths and significance of Christ’s supremacy were invaluable. As a community of faith we were challenged and encouraged. And, I think more than that we were given some common experience and language around which to gather and pray for a Christ Awakening here. I am forever blessed by my association with these truths.

As someone who has spent several decades mobilizing the Church to pray, I’m convinced that the greatest need of the Church today is a fresh biblical vision of who Christ is. To meet this need, God has raised up my friend, David Bryant, with a clear prophetic word for the people of God in our day. Sitting under his teaching is restorative and life-giving. This clear, clarion call for the Lordship of Christ is the most important voice being raised in the Church today!

Rev Dave Butts

Chairman, America’s National Prayer Committee

One common absence runs throughout the life of the Christian church in our moment in history–the absence of the name and authority of Jesus Christ in our preaching, prayer and corporate worship. David Bryant calls this absence a “crisis in Christology.” In The Christ Institutes you will discover a practical, and theologically responsible, antidote to this ruinous absence. I highly commend David, and his powerful teaching, without reservation.

My wife and I had the blessed opportunity to attend David Bryant’s The Christ Institutes recently. I am thrilled to share, not only what it has done to solidify and re-energize our marriage (we just celebrated our 30th anniversary), but also how it has injected new spiritual energy and excitement at the prison in which I am privileged to serve. As a Correctional Chaplain at a maximum security institution, I witness the darkness and hopelessness of the incarcerated on a daily basis. However, since David’s preaching of Christ as the “center and circumference” of our being has created a radical shift in the hearts and minds of many of the men that worship together. And, as did the early disciples of Jesus, they are carrying the message into the entire compound. I look forward to the continued focus on the supremacy of Christ in worship, Bible Studies, discipleship classes, and all that we do in His blessed name. Christ is all!

No series that I’ve heard so magnifies the glories of Jesus as does The Christ Institutes. David Bryant’s lifelong passion has been to reintroduce us to Christ, reminding us that, although we know Him, we must seek to know Him better. In a world where everything that has been nailed down is being torn up, this series reminds us that the Lord Jesus Christ awaits our worship and our confidence. In this faith building series, you will be reminded of what Savonarola said before his martyrdom, “He who believes that Christ reigns above, need not fear what happens below.” Watch. Listen. Share. Worship. And when the series is over give the rest of your life to making Jesus famous in this needy world.

At more youth camps than I can count, I have moved around cabins at the break of day, waking up the teenage boys. In our day, the Father is doing something similar. He is waking up individuals and churches to the supreme majesty of His beloved Son. When He got ready to wake me up, He sent David Bryant to my cabin. In the power of the Spirit, David gently shook me awake and I will never be the same. My joyful awakening to the Son has splashed all over my family, my seminary students, those who hear me speak, and those who read my books. In fact, now I am watching David Bryant’s “grandchildren” become agents of awakening in their own spheres of influence. All that our hearts long for in our homes, churches, and world . . . begins with a Christ awakening. Thus, it is impossible to be “too busy” to absorb the teaching the Father has given David about the glorious Son. I commend his teaching to all.

There are times when God uses a particular truth to shape the DNA of a life and ministry. Here at Life Action and all of its various arms of ministry, David Bryant’s definition of revival as “A Joyful Return to the Supremacy of God’s Son” has penetrated how we define who we are and what we do. And the phrase “Christ is all” has become indispensable to defining our focus, motivation and definition of success. We even altered our mission statement to match our heart-commitment that the spiritual awakening we seek be truly a Christ-awakening.

Byron Paulus

Executive Director, Life Action Ministries, Niles, MI

David Bryant is a prophetic voice to our generation. His passionate call to “return to Christ for all that He is” may be today’s most urgent message for every believer. How we need to heed it, and how grateful I am that he is disseminating this godly theme with such substance, depth and vitality through his outstanding website. May it impact the Church far and wide.

David Bryant’s teachings on the supremacy of Christ?  I’ve been there, I was inspired, I was saturated! Our message is not about Christ it “is Christ.” The “Stone” that the religious strategists have often neglected and left on the planning table is the “Chief Cornerstone.” Church history indicates that when the pendulum swings away from the “truth”, God raises up a voice in the wilderness of church stuff. “Behold My Son in Whom I am well pleased.” It fills the Father’s heart with joy when we honor, extol, and proclaim the glories of His only Son. Having been the founder and leader in the Concerts of Prayer Movement, God has now anointed David to call the church back to its central message, “Christ alone, Christ is all, Christ is now.”

Rev. Dr. Robert Johansson

Lead Pastor, Evangel Church and School
Chairman, Concerts of Prayer Greater New York, New York City

Sitting under David Bryant’s teaching on Christ turned into a time of transformation and revelation for us. The Son of the Living God became our breath and our life.  Even as the Scripture says that He became the first Son, we realize that we too have Jesus in us, the hope of glory, which is all that God is.  He was the first Son, and now there are millions of us with the same capacity to have Jesus living through us.  It is Colossians 1:27 that says “To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” As David opens up the unsearchable wonders of Christ (Eph. 3), for hour after hour living waters of truth connect earth and heaven to this glorious Savior. As a result, for us Jesus has become a daily reality in every thought and every breath of our lives.

As a rudder guides a ship so the supremacy of Christ must guide His Church. I thank God for the ministry of David Bryant. We live in a age when there is great confusion and misguided teaching within the Church on the person and work of Jesus Christ. David’s work in uplifting the supremacy of Christ for the Church helps me educate and challenge my congregation to pursue Christ with greater clarity and passion. We strive to be a “Christ-centered” congregation, and David’s biblical preaching and teaching help us give solid definition to that important phrase.

Dr. Jeff Ebert

Senior Pastor, Presbyterian Church at New Providence, NJ

The thirty five Christian leaders from the Pacific Northwest who joined me at The Christ Institutes were immersed in the supreme nature and deeds of the Lord Jesus Christ. David Bryant didn’t just present what he has learned about Christ during his 40 years of studying and seeking Christ. Rather, he “engaged” us in Christ’s greatness. We were “stunned” about all Christ is through Scripture passages, quotes and insights David presented, and through our times of small group discussion, praise and prayer. We gained a greater passion for Christ, who is ALL and is in ALL. It was the most impactful Christian gathering I’ve ever been part of. I am eager for many more to attend our second round of The Christ Institutes.

Steve Hall

Staff leader, International Renewal Ministries, Belhaven, WA

With The Christ Institutes, David Bryant drives home the central and enduring truth that Christ is Iall !  If you long for an awakening, a true revival that sees transformation in our families, communities, nations and the world, then the message and the application of Christ’s supremacy is paramount. Let us join with David in embracing and proclaiming this truth and expecting just such an awakening.

Mark Stoleson

Legatum Group, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The message of Christ’s supremacy is vital because it is the word of hope for the world, the church, and for us individually. David Bryant is so personally captivated by the risen, present, here-and-now Jesus that spending time with him spurs us on in hope and confidence in Jesus as the Messiah Who reigns as the answer for the world’s many needs. We are reminded to keep our eyes on Who Jesus is and what He is up to, rather than how He can fit in to our lives. Right now, we are grateful to see 40 plus churches in the state of Connecticut coming together as the Body of Christ across Connecticut EXALTING JESUS AS LORD, pursuing one common goal: to see our state transformed by the love and power of Jesus Christ.”

I highly recommend all the writings and teachings produced by David Bryant. As Proclaim Hope!’s president, for many years David has signed all his written communications with: “Christ Is All!” Intent on proclaiming the full extent of Christ’s supremacy David has now developed his opus maximus, Christ Is NOW!. It is a companion volume to his unique video series The Christ Institutes, with over 2000 PowerPoint slides.  Both offer a full course on the Biblical picture of the majesty of God’s Son they feature David’s exceptional gift of teaching. Don’t miss it!

Dr. John E. Kyle

Missionary statesman, Monroe, NC (former director:
Wycliffe Bible Translators; InterVarsity Missions; Mission To The World)

David Bryant’s vision of the majesty and supremacy of God’s Son is uncommon and powerful.  It will renew and reinvigorate your faith as in his writing and teaching videos David paints a vivid and vital picture of the the Lord Jesus Christ, high and lifted up, exalted to His rightful place in your heart and among the churches. What a great delight for the soul it is to spend time with David contemplating Jesus’ glory!

I’m a David Bryant fan! Before we rally people to the global PURPOSE of Christ, we want to ensure that every World Christian in Northwest Arkansas is first and foremost zealous (and jealous!) for the PERSON of Christ. What better way to “brand” the name of Jesus Christ on our hearts and over everything we do than to be saturated and inundated with over a dozen hours of David’s teachings on the supremacy of God’s Son. The expression, “drinking out of a fire hydrant” doesn’t do it justice. It is more like “taking a shower under Niagara Falls!” It sticks with you. We’ve had other worthwhile training times that seem to have faded like the face of Moses, but these insights seem to make the light brighter as we reflect on all we have learned about King Jesus.

Twenty five years ago, influenced by David Bryant’s ministry, his book title “Christ Is ALL!” became the banner to our church planting work in the former Soviet Union. As the years passed, our sight of Christ was blurred by our human efforts, our strategic plans, church bureaucracy and politics, and our human frailties. Recently, The Christ Institutes, literally filled with the hope and power of Christ, snapped me back to a full and renewed vision of Christ’s undeniable purpose, power and plan. David Bryant’s passion for Christ’s supremacy has never wavered nor diminished. It is wonderfully contagious and transforming for Christ’s glory.

Because of David Bryant’s obedience to God’s call on his life to help Christ’s church see Christ more fully for who He is right now and what He is doing right now, I personally have been deeply enriched in my walk with Christ. I believe our congregation has a much deeper and fuller understanding of Jesus Christ, our reigning King over the universe. Two years of preaching through the book of the Revelation only further verified as true what David has been declaring about the supremacy of Jesus Christ our Lord. May the message of Christ Is NOW! continue to spread broadly and deeply.

Rev. Dan Folden

Senior Pastor, New Heights Christian Church, Kent, WA

I love David Bryant. I love that his heart-compass always points to the exaltation of Jesus Christ. I love that he is not captive to peripheral doctrines, but that his soul is captured by the glory and supremacy of Christ. I whole-heartedly endorse this unique man of God and the irresistible magnetism of his obsession.
