“David Asscherick and Ty Gibson have distilled the best from their many years of anointed and productive frontline ministry to place in the hands of young people this series of evangelistic presentations that are both compelling and user-friendly. They constitute the best and latest evangelistic tool.”
—Gilbert R. Cangy
Director, Department of Youth Ministries
General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
At the age of 18 Ty Gibson encountered the truth of God’s existence for the first time. After having been raised with a purely secular worldview and having witnessed firsthand much evil and suffering, Ty was completely opposed to the idea of a Supreme Being. “If a God exists at all,” he reasoned, “wouldn’t He have to be cruel to have made a world like ours?” Ty’s conversion as a teenager was founded upon the answer to that question. Since then Ty has given his life to the joyous task of sharing God’s good character in public seminars as well as through print and video media. Ty is codirector/speaker of Light Bearers, an international publishing and teaching ministry that provides shipments of truth-filled literature to the church in developing countries. More than 500 million gospel publications in more than 30 languages have been put into circulation to date. As the speaker for digma.com, Ty creates short videos that address the most important issues of life. He has authored eight books, including See With New Eyes, An Endless Falling in Love, and his more recent release, A God Named Desire. Ty and his wife, Sue, live in Oregon and have three delightful offspring.
David Asscherick is the co-founder of ARISE. He is the former (from 2002 to 2007) pastor of the Troy Seventh-day Adventist Church in Troy, Michigan. In 2011, ARISE merged with Light Bearers and David became co-director of Light Bearers (2011–present). He has been featured on 3ABN and Hope Channel and has been a regular presenter at the annual Generation of Youth for Christ conferences.
