Dedication Evangelism



Weekend of Meetings
Meetings designed for various groups and ages (men, women, young people) were held over a single weekend to challenge God’s people and/or reach the community with the Gospel. A series was often held as an adult feature for an evening Vacation Bible School.

“Super Sunday” or Sunday Worship Service
“Super Sundays” included a unique and special message
in each meeting in a  Sunday schedule including the adult
Bible School hour, morning service and a lunch/afternoon
meeting or Sunday evening (if applicable). He is was available
to bring a special message in a morning service. Either of
these worked as pulpit supply.

Special Event or Day
Messages were regularly customized for a special events, holidays or other special functiosn (church or pastor’s anniversarys, banquets, graduations) or for a special interest groups (businessmen, pastors, physicians).

Missions Conference
Dave shared many stirring and challenging messages at  mission conferences or mission Sundays.

Special Presentations
Dave offered several special presentations that were stand-alone or can included in a weekend of meetings.

A Walk Around Jerusalem  used maps and photos (in PowerPoint), Biblical narratives and the listener’s imaginations to retraced the steps of Jesus from Palm Sunday to His ascension.

It’s Catching! was a unique presentation
using classic and antique fishing lures
and great fish stories to bring spiritual
lessons that presented Christ and His
desire for believers to become fishers
of men.

Objective Truth presented Bible times, themes and peoples using ancient artifacts, photos and other visuals. The presentation was able to be tailored to any age group.

Men’s Meeting
Dave often presented a special words of encouragement or
challenges designed specifically for men. Some men’s
groups also sponsored  “It’s Catching”  as an
outreach to the community.
