EL CAJON, Calif. — The impact of the teaching and broadcast ministry of Dr. David Jeremiah was on full display this month as Dr. Jeremiah preached to 160,000 people in five separate services at Calvary Temple in Hyderabad, India. The church, pastored by Satish Kumar, is the largest church in world.
Kumar noted that he learned to preach and teach the Bible, not exclusively as a result of formal theological education, but by watching Dr. Jeremiah’s program on Christian television. Also, Pastor Kumar called upon Dr. Jeremiah to join him in commissioning Kumar’s own son to full time ministry during the special services.
Turning Point is also rejoicing upon learning from Worthy Publishing that more than 500,000 Jeremiah Study Bibles are now in the hands of people across the country and around the world. Byron Williamson, Worthy’s president and publisher said, “Dr. Jeremiah is widely known by millions through radio, television, and best-selling books for his compelling Bible-teaching. We’re so honored to have partnered with Dr. Jeremiah on his legacy Bible study resource, which has been embraced by people of all ages and denominations.”
For each of these milestones, Dr. Jeremiah gave thanks to God, saying:
“It’s humbling to know so many individuals around the world have been led to the living water of God’s Word as a result of the Jeremiah Study Bible. Whether I’m teaching in America or India, whether I’m writing about the troubles of our present circumstances or the mysteries of the world to come, my most passionate goal in all things is to ensure that Jesus Christ is glorified and lifted up as the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
Paul Joiner, Executive Producer and Creative Director at Turning Point Ministries, said, “This is by far Turning Point’s best year ever. We are grateful to the many generous donors who have put Bibles into the hands of those who need them and to the faithful individuals who have been supporting our television ministry over the years. To God be the glory for all the fruit we’ve seen from Dr. Jeremiah’s unwavering commitment to teaching the Bible.”
