Rev. David Wilkerson, Founder of the faith-based drug & alcohol recovery centers located around the world called Teen Challenge, as well as Founder & Pastor of the Times Square Church in New York City and Author of the world-renowned autobiography, The Cross and the Switchblade, was killed yesterday in a head-on collision on a Texas highway at the age of 79. David’s wife Gwen was seriously injured in the accident.
David Wilkerson was one of the great Evangelists, Prophets & Pastors of our time. He will be sorely missed as another giant of the Faith goes home to be with Jesus.
Our prayers go out to Gwen and the Wilkerson family.
