David Wilkerson was the Founding Pastor of Times Square Church in New York City. He was called to New York in 1958 to minister to gang members and drug addicts, as told in the best-selling book, The Cross and the Switchblade.


In 1987, David Wilkerson returned to “the crossroads of the world” to establish Times Square Church. As a pastor of the church, he faithfully led this congregation, delivering powerful biblical messages that encourage righteous living and complete reliance on God.


David Wilkerson had a strong burden to encourage and strengthen pastors throughout the world. From 1999 to 2008, he traveled around the globe holding conferences for Christian ministers. David Wilkerson’s season of hard work—reaching addicts, gang members and abandoned children on ghetto streets; traveling the globe to raise up Teen Challenge centers and preach the gospel; raising up a church in the heart of Times Square; leading World Challenge to minister to the unreached, to weary pastors, and to the poorest people in impoverished nations. Rhema Radio is partnering with World Challenge to bring you these powerful messages from God’s word.
