And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Matthew 28:18-20
He that winneth souls is wise. Proverbs 11:30
Go Ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to Every Creature. Mark 16:15
Winning souls to Christ at an exponential rate is a core mission of David Wood Ministries. Dr. David Wood, evangelist and founder of the ministry, believes that the multiplication principle expressed in the Book of Acts is the truest method to reaching large numbers for Christ throughout the world.
The multiplication principle works like this:
One person is limited in reaching large numbers for Christ.
But if one person can train 100 others in Soul Winning, he can multiply his efforts.
How many souls can one person reach by training others how to lead people to Christ? Thousands even millions
When David Wood Ministries began, Dr. Wood and his team were inspired by the potential to reach, train and motivate one million Soul Winners around the world a goal he and his team have not only achieved, but exceeded. The basis of their work is that these Soul Winners will reach the world and continue the cycle of multiplication taught in the Book of Acts.
David Wood Ministries specializes in programs that equip churches and leaders with the tools to help win souls to Christ. The ministry works with local churches, in a hands-on and personal way, to help grow, train and equip leaders for Soul Winning. By igniting a passion for Soul Winning in the church, the ministry is helping fuel Christians to follow God’s word to win others to Christ.
What makes David Wood Ministries such as vigorous witness for the Lord? Sharing the good news with others makes up the greatest portion of our Lord’s words and deeds, and He continually urges His followers to redeem their time by living and speaking as faithful witnesses.
