A Note from Our President

Thank you for your interest in Dallas Willard Ministries! I am grateful for the opportunities God is giving us to share the good things we have learned from Dallas. The impact of his teaching has changed many lives and even been credited with starting the Spiritual Formation movement. His influence in academic and philosophical circles continues to bring God glory in “secular” settings. Our desire is to make Dallas’s teaching more and more available so that everyone can know the joy of living in the fullness of the Kingdom of God here on earth in every moment of every day. What a great gift!

Jan Johnson

Plans to make Dallas's teaching more readily available include providing the following resources:

  • expanded website resources
  • online courses
  • more downloadable audio
  • sharing more previously unpublished writing and teaching
  • brief video teaching clips
  • expanded social media presence
  • syllabi and other resources for philosophy professors
  • a comprehensive catalogue of Willard videos available on-line

We would love to hear from you! If you would like to contribute or partner with us in these projects, or if there are other resources you are hoping to see, please contact us at dwministries@dwillard.org. We appreciate your ideas and support!
