Hello! My name is David Ford and I want to extend to you a warm welcome to our web site. I feel honored that you have stopped by and I trust that you will be blessed.
The Mission and focus is twofold: Revival in the church and evangelism in the world. When true Revival is the experience, evangelism is the expression. In essence, revival is “times (seasons) of refreshing from the Presence of the Lord” (Acts 3). I have discovered that when God moves in His manifest Presence, THAT is revival and the overflow is the church getting right with God and the world coming to Christ. True evangelism takes place when, by God’s grace, one comes in repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Message is Christ and Him crucified. By that I am not being simplistic. You see, true Christianity is not you and I trying to copy an historical Christ who lived 2000 years ago; it is Christ Jesus presently living His life in and through us. As a true believer born of the Spirit, my body is simply the coat that clothes the indwelling Christ. It is His Deity clothed with my humanity…that is Christianity!
Jesus did not come to make bad men good. He came to make dead men live. By the truths of Romans 6-8, I’m simply a dead man living on resurrection life, having been crucified with Christ and now Christ living in me the life that He is. The overflow of this life is true Christianity, true Revival in the church, and true evangelism in the world.
Alan Redpath once said, “True evangelism is not you and I standing in the world and speaking for Christ. It is you and I standing in Christ and speaking to the world.”
The Method is two-fold: 1.) As a lead worshiper, I am to lead the church to the Holy of Holies (Jesus) through song using psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Eph. 5; Col. 3); and, 2.) This leads right into the preaching of the Word of God that I pray is dominated by the Word of God, saturated by the Spirit of God, and motivated by the glory of God.
The Man is simply David Ford.
Having received Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of seven, David began preaching at a young seventeen years old. He sang his first solo at three and this has extended itself in preaching and singing from S. Korea to S. Africa through personal and television appearances.
David preaches in city-wide crusades, church-wide conventions, at Christian colleges and universities as well as at many other venues throughout the United States and overseas. In 1983, he traveled with Dr. Stephen Olford throughout the country and had ministered on platforms with him before his Homegoing in 2004 (David was blessed to have him on his Advisory Board).
Having had pastoral experience has helped David to relate to the local pastor and the needs of his congregation and community. There's no substitute for loving God's pastors and people.
Speaking from his heart, David is deeply burdened for true revival in the church and spiritual awakening in America and the world. In God's grace and goodness, many series of meetings extends well beyond scheduled dates because God sovereignly moves in precious revival. To God be the glory! Globe for Christ International, Inc. believes and knows that prevailing prayer is the key to revival!
It is his prayer and the prayer of his prayer band that David comes with a freshness, fullness and fragrance of the Spirit of God as he expounds the Scriptures.
