"Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." Jeremiah 1:5
Dr. John David Kirby, B.A., M.A., Th.D., is the founder and president of John David Kirby Ministries, Inc. He was the senior pastor of Free Spirit Revival Center which he and his wife Sarah, B.A., M.A., founded in 1987. In the following year they founded Free Spirit Education Center, a private Christian school.
Dr. Kirby speaks nationally and internationally boldly proclaiming the uncompromised Word of God. Souls are saved, lives are dramatically changed; healing, miracles and deliverance are manifested as the Word of God is declared. He moves prophetically in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, bringing healing and deliverance to the whole man. He has ministered in conferences, crusades, tent revivals, street outreaches, home meetings, and churches here and abroad. Dr. Kirby has also ministered on radio and television.
"...We've had testimonies about healings about everything from migraine headaches to a nurse who was suffering severely from Lymes disease and in a wheelchair, get up and walk out of the meeting, to God be the glory! There have also been accurate prophetic words given over people as well. Any church desiring to be encouraged in the faith and the move of the Holy Ghost would do well to invite this couple to come share..."
Pastor Barry Ross, Word of Life Christian Fellowship, Galloway Township, NJ
A former rock musician, Dr. Kirby's "Damascus Road" conversion and miraculous deliverance was used of God to create in him a great desire to see people set free. His educational background includes a B.A. degree in Biblical Studies, an M.A. degree in Christian Psychology, and a Doctorate degree in Theology. The Kirbys are members of the One Heart World Fellowship (Visit their Websites) New Life Church/One Heart & Christian Assembly Ministries/One Heart and the MorningStar Fellowship of Ministries (Visit their Website) MorningStar Ministries
From their home base on Pine Island in Florida, the Kirbys are commissioned to "go and make disciples of all nations" and to bring deliverance to the captives in Jesus' name!
Dr. Kirby comments on his life and ministry:
"I was born again in 1985 and have a Doctorate degree in Theology. My wife Sarah and I founded, and were the senior pastors of, the Free Spirit Revival Center church in South West Florida for over 16 years. We also founded the Free Spirit Education Center Christian school and oversaw it for 15 years. We minister nationally and internationally, including the Caribbean and Russia.
I have an International Prophetic Ministry, incorporated with teaching and preaching the Word of God. I have a great desire to see the nations come to Christ, and the harvest of the last days gathered in. I have a heart for pastors and their churches, and I love to help, encourage, and counsel with them. I have a passion to see the prophetic ministry restored to the church at large, and for the whole body of Christ to recognize and receive the prophets of God.
I have a passion for revival and outpouring! I prophesy, preach, and teach with a strong emphasis on “Living the Victorious Christian Life.” I have a great desire to see people prophetically activated into their divine purpose, and to help them fulfill the destiny that they have in God!
My prophetic psalmist/minstrel ministry includes playing the guitar, writing songs, singing, leading worship, and prophesying while playing the guitar. My wife Sarah accompanies me in the ministry. We work together as a "team" to minister the Word of the Lord, and to bring freedom to the captives! (Isa. 61)
The Lord gave me a mandate many years ago to “Get My people healed!” He has instilled in me a great compassion and desire for sick, diseased, and suffering people to be made whole. The Lord has used me in numerous miracles, signs and wonders including seeing the dead raised to life! (See the Testimonies page for details on this miracle!)
