Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s one definition many today find helpful: “A Christ Awakening is when God’s Spirit uses God’s Word to reintroduce God’s people to God’s Son for ALL he is.” Putting it in simpler terms: “A Christ Awakening is when a person or a church becomes fully alive to the full extent of the supremacy of Christ.” Find out more about Christ Awakenings here.
A Christ Awakening is a gift of love from the Father, and the work of his Spirit, for the sake of his Son. It’s a work of God. Here are some ways to partner with God for your Christ Awakening:
- Ask God to open your eyes to more of Christ.
- As you do, continue to fill your mind and heart with as much truth about the vastness, wonders, and reign of Christ as you can.
- Allow the Holy Spirit to take you into more and more of Jesus’ fullness.
- Pursue Christ together with others.
- Choose to take additional steps on your Christ Awakening Journey.

Over the past 40 years, David Bryant has been defined as a “messenger of hope” and a “Christ proclaimer” to the Church throughout the world.
Formerly a pastor, minister-at-large with the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, president of Concerts of Prayer International (COPI), and chairman of America’s National Prayer Committee, today David provides leadership to Proclaim Hope!, whose mission is to “foster and serve a nationwide Christ-awakening movement.”
For decades, David played a widely visible role in the emergence of an unprecedented, worldwide prayer movement by building on citywide mass prayer rallies; organizing national and international conferences; creating training videos, seminars and manuals; development of leadership coalitions; fostering the mentoring of younger leaders; and reaching out through both TV and radio channels.
Among his writings are five key books:
With Concerts of Prayer: Christians United for Spiritual Awakening and World Evangelization
A revised, condensed version of David’s popular Christ Is ALL! provides a vital introduction to the overall TCI vision.
Since 2010, David has conducted an ambitious outreach to encourage a nationwide Christ Awakening movement, called The Christ Institutes (TCI). The goal is “Exploring and Experiencing the Spectacular Supremacy of God’s Son.”
A follow-up companion to the TCI course is Christ Is ALL! (with over 500,000 Mandarin copies alone being used to train Chinese church leaders). TCI has been professionally filmed and now is presented as The Christ Institutes Video Training Series.
In conjunction with the TCI project, David and his team have spearheaded a first-ever website, www.ChristNow.com. This web outreach provides a central hub for ever-expanding free resources, including teaching videos on aspects of Christ, worship music, videos about personal awakenings to Christ, blog posts, and devotions on our Lord’s reigning majesty, and more.
Plus there’s a free, nine-week daily email and video series to guide Christians in spending a few minutes a day focused on Christ.
David and his wife, Robyne, were high school sweethearts in their hometown of Massillon, Ohio. They now call metropolitan New York/New Jersey their home. Their three grown children, Adam, Bethany, and Benjamin, were adopted as infants from India.
Endorsements for David and TCI
I am deeply grateful that our loving Lord has called and anointed our brother, David Bryant, for a very strategic ministry of proclaiming Christ and His supremacy to the Church in the United States and beyond. He has given his life to this great and vitally significant mission. I highly commend to you The Christ Institutes.
As someone who has spent several decades mobilizing the Church to pray, I’m convinced that the greatest need of the Church today is a fresh biblical vision of who Christ is. To meet this need, God has raised up my friend, David Bryant, with a clear prophetic word for the people of God in our day.
The time has come to do whatever it takes to magnify in new ways the exalted place of God’s Son among our people, in our ministries and throughout the land. There is no greater hope for the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom within our cities. The Christ Institutes are a powerful way for us to move forward together.
No series that I’ve heard so magnifies the glories of Jesus as does The Christ Institutes. David Bryant’s lifelong passion has been to reintroduce us to Christ, reminding us that we must seek to know Him better. When the series is over give the rest of your life to making Jesus famous in this needy world.
David Bryant is a prophetic voice to our generation. His passionate call to “return to Christ for all that He is” may be today’s most urgent message for every believer. How we need to heed it, and how grateful I am that he is disseminating this godly theme with such substance, depth and vitality through his outstanding website.
David Bryant’s message on the supremacy of Christ comes at an important juncture in American and world history. We need this transcendent view of Jesus to interpret and navigate the ocean of uncertainty in our world today.
With The Christ Institutes, David Bryant drives home the central and enduring truth that Christ is All! If you long for an awakening, a true revival that sees transformation in our families, communities, nations and the world, then the message and the application of Christ’s supremacy is paramount. Let us join with David in embracing and proclaiming this truth and expecting just such an awakening.
