David P. Dowling

Biography

David P. Dowling has been ministering to teenagers and adults for over two decades. He served as a volunteer staff person with Youth for Christ in the Pocono/Slate Belt area of Pennsylvania starting in 1980 with Dave serving as the Executive Director from 2001 to 2008.

It was during his time at Youth for Christ that Dave had his first experience in short term missions, traveling to Jamaica to work on an addition for a school. Through that trip and others Dave gained the experience to go on to lead short term mission teams in the U.S. and to Honduras, and both Ghana and Kenya, Africa.

He is presently the Executive Director of Inheritance World Ministries inc. a ministry that trains and equips God’s people to perform various types of ministry, as well as lead short term mission trips. He and his wife Gail have also come along side of Through the Storm Ministries to help in the building and support of their ministry of an orphanage in Kenya East Africa. Dave plans on continuing to lead short term mission teams there to help both physically and financially.

Dave struggled for over two years with severe depression. It was only when he hit rock bottom that he turned back to God and found the answers that led him back out of his sickness into healing. As Dave sought after God, God revealed to him not only the steps that led to his depression, but also the path that would lead him back to health in a period of just a couple of weeks. It was what he learned on that journey that he decided to place between the pages of this book in order that others might find the same freedom he now has.

Dave has the ability to make God's Word real to people, and feels right at home whether he is speaking to 20 Junior High teenagers at a winter retreat or closing with a Gospel presentation at a Michael Card concert to hundreds.

Dave is extremely professional in engaging people, both from the stage and one on one. His desire is to see people understand God's Word so they can apply it to the way they live, and live a life in a way that brings glory to God.

Dave lives with his wife Gail in the Pocono Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. They have one daughter Sarah, and three sons, Jeremiah, Joshua, and Caleb.
