D James Kennedy



Through his internationally syndicated television and radio broadcasts, Dr. D. James Kennedy became the most-listened-to Presbyterian minister in history. He also became one of the most trusted Christian leaders of his generation and was inducted into the National Religious Broadcasters’ “Hall of Fame.” Dr. Kennedy began his Gospel ministry in earnest with the founding of the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1959. It was there that he launched the evangelism training ministry Evangelism Explosion International (EE). Today, those trained in EE are leading millions to faith in Jesus Christ every year. Dr. Kennedy authored 70 books, including three bestsellers, Evangelism Explosion, Why I Believe, and What If Jesus Had Never Been Born? (with Dr. Jerry Newcombe). Other books include the popular devotional, New Every Morning, and Beginning Again, which introduces new believers to the walk of discipleship in Jesus Christ. Dr. Kennedy also founded other Christ-centered outreach ministries, including: Westminster Academy, Coral Ridge Ministries Media, Coral Ridge Ministries, Knox Theological Seminary, the D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship, Truth in Action Ministries, D. James Kennedy Ministries, the Kennedy Center for Christian Leadership, and the D. James Kennedy School of the Bible.
