TESTIMONIES FROM PASTORS WHO HAVE HOSTED, "THE PRINCE OF PREACHERS-LIVE!"
The Meeting Dave Richards held for us on January, 2006, at The Escondido California Theatre for The Arts saw a standing room only audience. The anointed preaching of Charles Haddon Spurgeon awed the present throng. The most amazing part however was the never before seen by our organization amount of persons who made decisions to invite Jesus into their hearts! Don't miss this experience in your area.

I must say Dave Richards has captured the essence of "The Prince of Preachers." I've often read Spurgeon's sermons and been blessed, but never before had I heard the "thunder and lightning!"

"Dave's 2-day revival for us, was the best and most powerful revival of its kind I have ever seen in 40 years pastoring. People sat in rapt attention as we relived another time in history, with a message for today. Friday night over 1/2 of the audience gave their heart to Our Lord Jesus!"
Thomas A. Fisher, Senior Pastor, First Assembly of God Church
"When we heard of Dave Richards' powerful presentation, we jumped at the chance to bring him to town. I'm so glad we did. Our people are still talking about it. They remember the Saturday and Sunday messages as though they had been given by Spurgeon himself. He will not disappoint you or your church."
