Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Nations

NEST Program

Development and Training of National Evangelists


Through the NEST (National Evangelist Support Team) program, DSEA trains people who are gifted and called into evangelism, and helps equip them for full-time ministry by providing practical training in field evangelism. 

David Stockwell and other DSEA Team Leaders work personally with trainees, mentoring and discipling them in their Christian faith and calling.  Through practical training in the field, David teaches the men how to effectively communicate the Gospel with clarity and the power of the Holy Spirit, how to give an effective invitation, how to communicate with young people through the David Stockwell Speaks Out School Program, and a variety of techniques which help the young evangelist in his ministry.







Training Conferences offer additional support, equipping NEST evangelists with a solid foundation in the Word of God on such issues as A Passion For Souls, Spiritual Warfare, Brokenness, The Work of the Evangelist, and The Pastor’s Heart.  NEST evangelists minister alongside the DSEA team in their countries as often as possible, and report each month on their evangelistic activities to the DSEA office in Texas.
NEST Program evangelists become largely responsible for advance set-up, administrative work, discipleship and follow-up required for DSEA's international campaign efforts.

The NEST Program began in David’s heart as a desire to help other young evangelists and ministers with training, support and practical discipleship in the work of field evangelists.  As a new believer at the age of seventeen, immediately called to the work of evangelism, David sat under the godly tutelage of mighty men of God such as Freddie Gage, Manley Beasley, Jack Taylor, John Bisagno, and many others. 

As a young evangelist, and through many years of evangelistic ministry, David realized the great importance of godly leadership, accountability, prayer support, and the help of people who really understand the heart and gifting of an evangelist.  He also experienced first-hand the great difficulties of living the life of the evangelist: traveling, preaching, and trying to provide for his family.  1 Corinthians 9:14 tells us, “ . . . the Lord has commanded that those who preach the Gospel should live of the Gospel.”

As he prayed and ministered internationally, he began asking God to bring him in contact with godly, faithful men who were called and committed to full-time evangelism, and who needed help and support.  Those prayers have blossomed into the DSEA NEST Program, through which over fifty men in many countries around the world are trained, supported, and encouraged in their evangelistic ministries.  Many of these men are reaching tens of thousands of people with a clear presentation of the Gospel.

Each month, NEST evangelists receive a small financial gift through DSEA, which helps them with travel and ministry expenses, and helps make sure their families are cared for.  The NEST Program also provides, in various locales, practical equipment as needed for ministry such as:

  • portable battery-operated sound systems
  • microphones, cords
  • DVD’s and VHS movies of evangelistic films such as The Passion of the Christ, the Jesus movie, and others for public events
  • CD’s and CD players for worship music
  • Bicycles and vehicles for transport in four African countries
  • Tracts, scripture portions, Bibles and discipleship materials for follow-up ministry
  • Christian discipleship books, tape series, DVD’s, videos for evangelist and pastor training and development

The DSEA NEST evangelist network includes pastors and evangelists in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, and the Philippines, and DSEA has been able to help and train others in Brazil, Bangladesh, India, Ukraine, Romania, England, Nicaragua, Guatemala, South Africa, Mozambique, and Mexico.

Pray with David Stockwell and the DSEA Team, that God will continue to raise up godly, faithful, trustworthy men with the gifting and calling for harvest evangelism. 

Jesus said, in Matthew 9:37-38,  "The harvest is great, but the laborers are few.  Pray to the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into the harvest."
