Over the past 40 years, David Bryant has been defined by many as a “messenger of hope” and a “Christ-proclaimer” to the Church throughout the world. Formerly a pastor, minister-at-large with the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, president of Concerts of Prayer International (COPI) and chairman of America’s National Prayer Committee, today David provides leadership to PROCLAIM HOPE! whose mission is to “foster and serve a nationwide Christ-awakening movement”.
For decades David played a widely visible role in the emergence of an unprecedented, worldwide prayer movement by capitalizing on city-wide mass prayer rallies; national and international conferences; training videos, seminars and manuals; development of leadership coalitions; the mentoring of younger leaders; and media outreach (both TV and radio).
Among his other writings are five key books: In the Gap: What It Means To Be a World Christian; With Concerts of Prayer: Christians United for Spiritual Awakening and World Evangelization; The Hope at Hand: National and World Revival for the 21st Century; and Messengers of Hope: Becoming Agents of Revival for the 21st Century; and Christ Is ALL! A Joyful Manifesto on the Supremacy of God’s Son.
Currently David is conducing an ambitious outreach to encourage Christ Awakening movements, nationwide and beyond, called The Christ Institutes. Their goal is: “Exploring and Experiencing the Spectacular Supremacy of God’s Son“. This is backed by his most recent 900-page volume Christ Is NOW!, a companion to the widely respected Christ Is ALL! (with over 500,000 Mandarin versions alone being used to train Chinese church leaders).
David and his wife Robyne were high school sweethearts in their hometown, Massillon, Ohio. They now call metropolitan New York/New Jersey their home. Their three grown children, Adam, Bethany and Benjamin, were adopted as infants from India.
