A preacher who steals money from his church or hypocritically sells religious teaching for a quick buck robs far more than the congregation he serves. He robs you of the joy of expressing your love for God with your money. The Apostle Paul faced the con artists and the disillusioned congregations back in the first century, but he didn’t quit the ministry because of the lack of funds.

About Dave Wyrtzen
Above everything else Dave Wyrtzen is a pastor-teacher. In 1973 he sat together with about sixteen others in a small town thirty miles southwest of Dallas. These sixteen wanted someone to simply open up the pages of Scripture on a Sunday morning, help them to hear the truth, and then train them on how to live it in the marketplace. Dave served as senior pastor at Midlothian Bible Church for 40 years, and now is focusing on serving the greater body of Christ through Truth Encounter and teaching.
He received both his Th M and Th D from Dallas Seminary and is an adjunct faculty member for the Seminary on both the masters and doctoral level. He also teaches Introduction to the Bible at Southern Bible Institute, and World Religion at Navarro College. Dave speaks regularly for Bible Conferences and in many foreign countries. Dave's greatest joy is his wife, Mary, their eight children (counting spouses) and ten grandkids. His life goal is to communicate God's truth through the power of the Spirit in practical and skillful ways. Through Truth Encounter we invite you to join us for his unique depth, passion, and practicality. This Bible teaching is rooted in solid study but lives in the office, classroom, and ball field.
