Norm Geisler International Ministries is dedicated to equipping the body of Christ around the world to meet the challenges posed by non-Christian beliefs today in our efforts to help fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
We desire to be used by the Holy Spirit as a catalyst to help other churches, ministries, seminaries, and lay leaders around the globe to develop new paradigms in pre-evangelism which more effectively supplement evangelism training globally and further strengthen the Christian church.

Dr. David Geisler
Dr. David Geisler is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary (M.A. and Th.M.) and Southern Evangelical Seminary (Doc. of Ministries in Apologetics). He has been involved in Church and para-church ministry for over 25 years and is an internationally known speaker (North American, Latin America, Asia, Europe, and Africa). He has ministered in 13 Asian countries alone when he lived in Singapore where his headquarters was from 2004-2011. During those seven years in Asia he trained over 300 bible and seminary students in practical apologetics, many who are now pastors and missionaries all over Asia.
He is currently the co-founder and president of Norm Geisler International Ministries and adjunct professor at Southern Evangelical Seminary. In 1994, he was hired by the graduate branch of Campus Crusade for Christ to help develop a national pilot program at U.T. Austin to reach skeptical graduate students. What he discovered is that there is a real need for Christian ministries to understand how to do process evangelism, especially with those more skeptically minded. As a result, in 2000 he started Meekness and Truth™ Ministries. In 2002 in cooperation with his team he developed a new pre-evangelism paradigm called Conversational Pre-Evangelism that he has taught throughout the U.S. with college ministries, churches, seminaries, and mission organizations. In 2004 he felt called to Asia to equip Christians in the East in this new pre-evangelism paradigm. In 2009 he co-authored along with his father, Norman Geisler, Conversational Evangelism: Connecting with People to Share Jesus, published by Harvest House. Their book has been translated into Chinese, Korean, Bahasa Indonesian, and Slovakian and was republished in 2014. His evangelistic/apologetic training program has been recommended by many national and international Christian leaders. In July of 2011 he and his Chinese wife, Charlene and their three children relocated back to U.S. where David oversees M&T’s global movement both in the East and the West which is now called Norm Geisler International Ministries. David feels especially called to play a part to expand his father’s (Dr. Norman Geisler) apologetic resources around the world and also extend his father’s legacy by cultivating greater hunger among lay people to desire greater apologetic training to meet the challenges of living in a post-Christian world.
