History

It all began in 1971 when Derek Prince officially opened an office in the garage of his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Originally known as Derek Prince Publications, it was the fruit of Derek's flourishing Bible teaching ministry which was seeded in 1944 when the Lord said to him:

“You are called to be a teacher of the Scriptures, in truth and faith and love, which are in Christ Jesus - for many.”

These words fuelled Derek's efforts to feed the spiritually hungry, inspiring him to pen and self-publish a range of books including the Self-Study Bible Course (1969), Liberating Truth (1966), Repent and Believe (1966) and more. A testament to the success of these titles and faithfulness of God, Derek Prince Publications grew with ever-increasing demand.

By 1972, production had exceeded Derek's capacity as sole employee and David Selby (his son-in-law) was invited to help. Together, they charted a path for the burgeoning ministry, engaging broadcast radio and publishing new books.

Foreign offices were opened in New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands throughout the 1980s, and dreams to disciple nations solidified. By the end of the decade, Derek had completed three round-the-world Bible teaching tours, and his radio programme was widely broadcast across six continents and ten languages.

In 1990, Derek Prince Publications was officially renamed Derek Prince Ministries. The distribution of free Bible teaching material had intensified, numbering 126 countries in all, and Derek's books were now available in more than 50 languages.

Today, Derek Prince Ministries has offices in over 45 countries across the globe and remains wholeheartedly committed to teaching the Bible in every nation, culture and tongue. The growth and success of the ministry verifies the prophetic word Derek received in 1941, when the Lord said:

“It shall be like a little stream, and the little stream shall become a river, and the river shall become a great river. The great river shall become a sea, and the sea shall become a mighty ocean.”

Derek Prince Ministries is overseen by a coalition of national directors who work together to achieve this vision of a "mighty ocean".

Equipped with a vast archive of written, audio and visual material of Derek Prince, the ministry continues to publish new books. To date, over 100 books have been published and translated into more than 100 languages.

“The Bible is God’s own Word. It is God’s great gift to all people everywhere.”
