If it’s time to plant a garden, we need a good book on gardening. If it’s time to build a building, we would be wise to find ourselves a good architect. Gardens and buildings demand wise planning, skillful implementation and careful nurturing. Weeds wage war against the legitimate plants in the garden, and sloppy workmanship or wrong design can lead to deadly results in the construction business. What in the world do gardens and buildings have in common with our churches? For more …listen to Dave’s message this week, A Cure For Church Demolition, Part 3.
While ministering in Western Kenya, Dave’s heart was touched by the great physical and spiritual needs. The Lord has connected us with Kenyan churches and our desire is to put God’s heart into action by joining our brothers and sisters in meeting needs. Please consider these opportunities you have to encourage the body of Christ in Africa.

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.
