It all began in early June, 2004 when Irvin Baxter walked across his driveway and said, “Dave, I feel like it’s the Lord’s will that you come to work at Endtime.” Dave knew at that stage of life, it was his preverbal fork in the road and he quit his job that afternoon.
Boy, was he ever a fish out of water? Having worked construction for almost 20 years, Dave didn’t have a clue where to begin. The funny thing is, Irvin couldn’t answer that question either. However, they both knew it was God’s will and so Dave bounced all over the place trying to find his “spot.”
While Endtime was still in Indiana, Dave started doing some marketing, purchasing, and then moved to shipping. Once Endtime decided to move to Texas, he remodeled our first office building. After that he helped manage the business side of the ministry. Two years later, he built-out our present office space and television studio and then continued in management.
The problem was, Dave still never felt he was fulfilling God’s true purpose for calling him to Endtime, but everything changed when we went on television in 2010.
The first night our program aired, many of our team joined at the office to help take phone calls. Dave took a call from a man that was both a professor at a college and an atheist. It didn’t take long for Dave to realize that he couldn’t even explain what he believed about God and the Bible, let alone prophecy.
He truly believes God had him take that call, because it put a desire in him to study the Bible. Dave made up in his mind, with the Lord’s help, he would never experience a conversation like that again.
Over the next couple of years he studied and researched, but still felt like his walk with God was stagnant. He asked the Lord to help him draw closer to Him and He told him to start an Endtime prophecy Bible study.
After discussing it with Irvin, they came up with an outreach program called the, “Soul-Winning Cycle.” It is specifically designed to use Endtime materials to teach people about prophecy, win people to the Lord, and retain them and to establish their walk with Jesus Christ.
Dave started his first Endtime Bible study on November 8, 2012. At the end of the initial 18-week cycle, we baptized 23 people in Jesus’ name and most of them received the Holy Ghost!
Since then the Bible studies have continued and hundreds of people have been saved.
Yes…Dave found his niche!
As a result of God’s miraculous transformation of Dave’s life and Irvin’s continued direction, among other things, Dave is now the editor of Endtime magazine, one of the hosts of End of the Age, and he teaches Endtime Prophecy Conferences across the nation.
Dave truly gives Jesus the glory for every success that we have had. Without Him, none of this would have been possible!
