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.
