David Asscherick's Relocation to Australia

Regarding: David Asscherick’s Relocation to Australia

by Light Bearers  |  November 21, 2013

In 2013, Light Bearers launched ARISE Australia in partnership with the North New South Wales Conference (NNSW) and the Kingscliff Seventh-day Adventist Church. The first program was a glowing success and 24 enthusiastic students graduated on May 10th. This superb start opened the door for a deepening of the partnership between Light Bearers, the NNSW Conference, and the Kingscliff Church.

While David is relocating to Australia to facilitate this opportunity, his role with Light Bearers will not change.

To strategically facilitate this partnership David has accepted the call to be the senior pastor of the Kingscliff Church. He will occupy this position while continuing in his current role with Light Bearers as a speaker, writer, and instructor for our ARISE programs. David will continue to teach the same classes he has taught for Light Bearers at our ARISE programs in the US, speak at our annual convocation, and continue with our new Table Talk television series, among other projects. In other words, while David is relocating to Australia to facilitate this opportunity, his role with Light Bearers will not change.

We are very excited about the ministry possibilities this new situation will open. It’s an expansion of the dream God has given us in training, teaching, and empowering disciples of Jesus Christ. We solicit your prayers as we continue to go forward spreading the Good News about Jesus!

In Christ,

Ty, James and David

    May GOD, in Jesus name, continue to use you in spreading the gospel of salvation to wherever HE leads you. GOD’s will be done for it is the best for the salvation of human souls. Amen.

    I first met David at Camp Ausable MI before he even became a pastor. Love to hear him speak. May God continue to use him and his family in a mighty way to change one or one hundred souls at a time. What will God have for you and me to do for His Kingdom?

  • Mary Jo

    May God bless you wherever you go … Praise The Lord for satellite and DVD’s.

  • Needs to be the other side of Oz… hi from Albany.

  • Syd

    Be safe, God bless

  • Brett Hereford

    Thank you for going where the Spirit leads. May you sow bountifully.

  • Yveline

    Praise the Lord! All nations need to be lightened by the glory of God.
    May God continue to blessed pastor Asscherick and his family anywhere He wants to lead them! Be filled with the Holy Spirit! Keep sharing his messages on the net, they draw me so close to my Lord. Let’s shine for the Lord Jesus everywhere we are. Thanks!

  • God is good. Before the plans for David to come to Australia were in the pipeline

    God guided me in my plans for retirement. Guess where?

  • Lisa

    sad for us so excited for God’s glory and all he has for us all!!!

  • Andrea Sutherland

    Praise God for Pastor David’s willingness to go where God leads for the Bible says “he leadeth me” Psalm 23:2! Ellen G. White says that Samuel established the “schools of the prophets” (FE 96) to furnish the nation ” with men qualified to act, in the fear of God, as leaders and counselors” and this is what ARISE does so well. Perhaps ARISE will expand in the future to many other regions of the world. If so please do not forget the Caribbean. Praise God too for technology such as television, satellites, Internet etc. so that if one lives on the other side of the world from Pastor David, one can still be in touch in real time! Pastor David’s ministry has been a blessing to me as over the years it has helped me to grow and mature in my Christian walk.

  • When will this take place?

  • S. VanDevender

    God knows the plan for his life. I am glad that @ this time he can continue with Table Talk, however if God has other plans for the future that’s all that really matters.

  • Karen and Glenn

    looking forward to seeing our area getting more evangelism 🙂 praying all goes well and we ( my wife and i ) can be helpful and be part of a team effort 🙂 God bless

  • Sandra

    Just finished the series on GOD for hope channel. It was superb!

  • Jill Harwood

    Hey David! I will try to contact Sasha Bolotnikov,to see if there are any Jewish believers who would be willing to teach Hebrew,as I did. It would be best if the person is a lay person,not costing you anything,the students buying their books,etc.and during Sabbath School,not to interfear with regular class sessions.There might be professors there who teach Hebrew at the university, if approached nicely, might be willing to help out. Wish I could be a fly on the wall. I miss my students! I’m hoping to get another class together here. am waiting on G.’ will. Yours in the L-rd, Jill Harwood

  • Leslie Douglas

    Next stop London. Seriously, my prayers are with you and your family as you make this transitional change.
    I know that God has a plan for you in Australia. Go in his name knowing that he will be your voice and that he has gone before you to ensure that his words does not return unto to him void.
    God Bless

  • God is leading,you and your family. There is something He has for you to ocommplish. My prayers will be with you. God bless in all of His perfect plans for your life.

  • May God Almighty reward your work and lead you where you go to

    continue your Father and our fathers business. The Song writer saidHark! The voice of Jesus calling Who will go and work today? Fields are white, the harvest waiting Who will bear the sheaves away? Loud and long the Master calleth Rich reward He offers free Who will answer gladly saying Here am I, O Lord send me

  • Karen Brown

    Mr. Asscherick I just viewed (intently) all of your teachings on the Hope Channel entitled God?. WOW! You were phenomenal! As a youth leader and a MIT (minister in training for ordination), the teachings were biblically sound with fab-u-lous life applications. I just got it! If ARISE and Light Bearers are extensions of that type of teaching, well then your students will definitely impact the world for Jesus Christ. May God’s blessings, favor and anointing carry you and your family as you relocate to Australia. Please continue to write books and provide video teachings so we can continue to reap the “disciple” benefits in the USA.

  • DeeH

    There is no limit to what God can do through His obedient servants. A life committed to uplifting Jesus will grow from strength to strengthh. God continue to bless and keep you and your family in this great movement.

  • Tylerius

    Following in the footsteps of EGW? Why did you guys really send him there? Jk 🙂

    Sounds like a good opportunity for the entire ministry. Many blessings and thank you all for your service.

    This is truly a High calling and a must for the Word of the Lord to be shared with that location of the world. I have to admit though that I am quite envious of the location due to the many beautiful beaches and surf locations that exist there in Australia. So, I say, David keep your mind on why you are there, and then go out and have some fun…Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Scuba Diving, Surfing, Fishing, etc.
