“The Cry That Invokes His Presence”
“Pursuit of God Series”
You are invited to enjoy the teaching and fellowship of this week’s “Pursuit of God” gathering. This week, Reuben will follow up with “The Cry that Invokes His Presence” from Mark 10:46-52.
More info and to register:
Have you ever called on God and still found it hard to experience His presence? Do you want to know how to cry out for the manifest presence of Jesus? There’s a cry—a cry of desperation and intensity— that draws the attention of the Almighty God.
This week’s topic follows naturally from last week’s study, our need to desperately reach out to touch Jesus. The song, “I Want to See Him Again”, underscores our need to touch the hem of His garment. Those lyrics include: “Oh come Lord, like a rushing wind. We are desperate, for Your presence. Revive us, by Your spirit within. We want to see You again; see You again.”
Registration is required because space is limited. These meetings are in a private home in Craig Ranch.

Born and raised in India — home to Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism — Reuben is well versed in the practical realities of comparative religions today. His first-hand knowledge of religions, cults, and the competing philosophies and ideologies of our day has made him a popular lecturer and seminar leader with university students and adult audiences alike. Mr. David holds masters’ degrees in mass media, psychology, and religion from Regent University in Alexandria, Virginia, and from Bangalore University in India. A former professor of media and Christian worldview at the North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota, he divides his time between America and India.

“Reuben David is a wonderful young Christian brother whom my family and I came to know well while he was a graduate student in the U.S. I admire his love of the Lord and his heart for the spread of the Gospel. He is intelligent, well read, articulate and full of enthusiasm. He has a very broad understanding of global missions. I warmly recommend him as a speaker on spiritual matters.”
