It is with a sense of sadness but also deep gratitude for a life well lived, that we honour the passing on of David Wilkerson, who was killed in a motor accident in Texas, yesterday.
David was the founder of ‘Teen Challenge’ and founding pastor of Times Square Church, New York. His life and ministry, particularly in the early days as recounted in his best-selling “The Cross and the Switchblade”, have been a major inspiration to many. Additionally some of our leaders and members have had direct connections with ‘Teen Challenge, UK’ in the past.
Truly he was a hero of the faith who has now been promoted to glory, and no doubt received with great cheers! Please continue to pray for his family, especially his wife Gwendoline, who was injured in the same car accident, but is in stable condition.
