Welcome Clifford Young, Jr. to the DWM Board of Directors

Dallas Willard Ministries is excited to welcome Cliff Young to our Board of Directors. Cliff was raised in Los Angeles, and earned a Bachelors in Music Education & trumpet performance followed by a Master of Music Education at the University of Southern California. He taught music in public schools for 12 years, and also served as Choir Director and Audio-Visual Director at Calvary Chapel South Bay in Gardena, California. It was in the counseling rooms at Calvary Chapel that Cliff found his passion for full-time ministry. He then enrolled at Pepperdine University, earning a Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology, and a Master of Divinity from Azusa Pacific University. The Seminary at Azusa is where Cliff was introduced to Dallas’s teaching, and it changed his vision of God and His Kingdom. So Cliff joined the first cohort of the School of Kingdom Living, graduating in July 2022, while also pursuing his Doctorate at APU with an emphasis in spiritual formation.

Cliff is lead pastor of New Hope Christian Center in Lomita, California. His publications include Christian Soul: Foundational Principles of Faith (2021); and 3 music CDs. Please visit his website to learn more.

Dallas Willard Ministries is currently engaged in the following initiatives to make Dallas's teaching more readily available:

    • Free Zoom Webinars are being offered in partnership with Doug Webster of Jesus College to help you dig deeper into Dallas’s teaching. Please see our Events page for current course offerings.
      - If you’ve missed the beginning of a webinar, you can still sign-up for the rest and view the earlier sessions at any time.
      - Previous classes, including The Allure of Gentleness, The Divine Conspiracy, Life Without Lack, and For Such a Time as This are available to watch and use for your personal study or with a small group at any time.
    • We are adapting Dallas’s material for YouVersion reading plans. Our first two published reading plans are Hearing God Through the Year, and Becoming Christlike Through Renovation of the Heart. A second Renovation of the Heart plan is currently in progress: Becoming Christlike: Loving God With All You Are.
    • Registration for Cohort 3 of the School of Kingdom Living is now underway. If you would like to find out more about the School and the possibility of joining this community of fellow apprentices, please email John Carroll.
    • We continue to expand our website resources - with more free articles, downloadable audio, and philosophy syllabi.
    • We are building the collection of full-length teaching sessions on the DWM YouTube channel and offering brief video clips for use as teaching tools.
    • Development has begun on a comprehensive, searchable database for all of Dallas’s teaching.
    • The Moral Knowledge Initiative, was been slowed down a bit by Covid-19, but we are planning two symposiums for 2023 (Southern California) and 2024 (Virginia) in response to the significant interest in the 2018 publication of The Disappearance of Moral Knowledge.
    • Our first small group Bible study curriculum is now in development.
    • We will continue to offer online courses such as Life Without Lack.
