 Re:

When I heard about the accident and the death of David Wilkerson I went for a long walk as I thought and prayed (it was drizzling out and I really didn't care). I, too, felt like crying. Upon coming home I popped an old video tape of one of his sermons entitled, "I Shall Fear No Evil." I have not listened to this tape for probably 7 or 8 years.....it was just the first one I saw so I threw it in the DVD/VCR and listen to it.

In this message David Wilkerson spoke of how great heaven and the presence of Jesus is....and how we need not fear death. Praise be to God for the truth that Brother Wilkerson shared.

Obviously, from our human perspective, what happened was a tragedy and we grieve at his loss and pray for his family. However, this great man of God is now in the presence of his heart's desire....Jesus Christ.

 Re:


“David served the purposes of God in his generation, then he died” (Acts 13:36).

On Wednesday afternoon my father, David Wilkerson, passed away in a car accident. We grieve the loss of a beloved father, a faithful husband and a holy man of God. My mother, Gwen, his wife of 57 years, was in the car also, but we are told she will recover fully.

Dad’s 60-plus years of ministry have impacted the lives of those closest to him and extended to millions around the world. Today we feel a personal loss, but at the same time we rejoice knowing Dad lived life to the fullest, obeying God with devotion and loving Jesus radically.

He was known for his unlimited faith. He believed God could change the lives of gang members and transform the most desperate drug addicts. He believed that a dynamic church could be launched in the heart of Times Square, New York City. He believed he could be a man who loved his wife and children well. And he did.

Dad was not one for fanfare, acclaim or ceremony. He turned down invitations to meet with world leaders yet would give everything he owned to support a poor orphan or a widow in distress.

Like King David of old, Dad served God’s purposes in his generation. He preached with uncompromising passion and relentless grace. He wrote with amazing insight, clarity and conviction. He ran his race well and when his work was done, he was called home.

I don’t think my father would have retired well. I don’t think he was one to sit in a rocking chair and reminisce about times past. I believe that Jesus, knowing this, graciously called him home.

Dad’s last mission on earth was to be an advocate for the poorest of the poor—to provide relief and support for hungry children and widows and orphans. After founding Teen Challenge, World Challenge and Times Square Church, he sought to feed starving children in the most impoverished countries in the world. Today, Please Pass the Bread is saving the lives of thousands of children, through 56 outreaches in 8 countries.

Like King David of old, after having served God’s purpose, he died. I know if my father were able to encourage you with his words today, he would invite you to give your all to Jesus, to love God deeply and to give yourself away to the needs of others.

The works he began outlive him. We can all attest to his impacting us—not only in his preaching, writing and founding of world-changing ministries, but in his love, devotion, compassion and ability to stir our faith for greater works.

-Gary Wilkerson

Praise God!

 Re: Rev. David Wilkerson Killed in TX Car Crash

This was hard to process. Like many I love David and am grateful for him. Though he is with Jesus I can love him still by praying for his wife and loved ones in this time...I believe he would want that very much.

 Re: Rev. David Wilkerson Killed in TX Car Crash

This afternoon after work I was speaking with two Christians on a busy street corner as one(who I knew) was handing out tracts. The other had stopped to talk with us. I mentioned a message to him that Pastor Wilkerson had preached because the topic of prosperity preaching had come up. Hearing that the friend handing out tracts informed me that Pastor Wilkerson had passed. I was somewhat shocked and asked him several times if he was sure it was Pastor Wilkerson.

The message that I recommended was "Another Gospel". I'm sure most of you are familiar with it. It so happens that I had taken a picture recently that I felt strongly would go along with a qoute from that message. For some time I sat on it and didn't publish it because I kept feeling a check that it was not time.


I did end up matching the picture with a qoute from the message and publishing it to the internet. It looks as though that was on 27 April, 2011.

One of the most penetrating questions that Pastor Wilkerson asks in the message and I can hear him asking it now in my mind if I recall it, one of the most penetrating questions that he asks, is this:

is this a gospel for a dying world?


The Gospel that Pastor Wilkerson preached was.

Thank you Pastor.

 Re: Rev. David Wilkerson Killed in TX Car Crash

What a precious man of God. There just aren't too many people that I would be quick to call a Pastor or a Minister of the Lord Jesus Christ, but Brother David was truly one of them for me. While I am saddened by this loss, he has left a beautiful legacy, and a testimony in Christ that I am encouraged by. May the Lord continue to comfort his friends, family, and all those who were blessed/touched through Brother David Wilkerson's work in Christ.
