Dr. David Geisler
Dr. David Geisler is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and has been involved in Church and para-church College Ministry for over 20 years. In 1994, he was hired by the graduate branch of Campus Crusade for Christ to help develop a national pilot program at U.T. Austin to reach skeptical graduate students. What he discovered is that there is a real need for Christian ministries to understand how to do process evangelism, especially with those more skeptically minded. As a result, in 2000 he started Meekness and Truth Ministries. In 2002 in cooperation with his team he developed a new pre-evangelism paradigm that he has taught on College campuses throughout the U.S. and also in the East with College ministries, churches, seminaries, and mission organizations.
