History

In May of 1971, Derek Prince officially began Derek Prince Publications in the garden house of his property in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. At Derek's invitation, a year later in 1972, his son-in-law David Selby, the husband of his daughter, Anna (one of Derek and Lydia's nine adopted daughters) moved to Fort Lauderdale from Canada and began to help carry out the work. In the next few years, the ministry expanded, necessitating a number of moves of its location in the Fort Lauderdale area. In 1990, Derek Prince Publications officially became Derek Prince Ministries and in 1993, received its official 501(c)(3) charitable organization status. In 1994, the entire DPM-USA operation was moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2006, after 35 years of service, David Selby transitioned to International Director and Dick Leggatt was welcomed as the new President of DPM-USA. There are approximately twenty-one full and part-time employees at Derek Prince Ministries - USA. The USA office is governed by a board of directors which meets three times a year. The board consists of Percy Burns, Jim Croft, Gerry Edwards, Haley Eichelberger, Sally Fesperman, Larry Gregory, Dick Leggatt, David Selby, and Lisa Watkins. Internationally, the work of Derek Prince Ministries is overseen by a coalition of national directors who help to provide general direction and supervision to the work of DPM worldwide. These directors serve on the IC: Neil Cornick, International Operations Director and head of DPM-United Kingdom; Alex Genovese, DPM-Australia; Dick Leggatt, DPM-USA; Ross Paterson, DPM-China; and Warren Smith, DPM-South Pacific. Once a year, a significant number of the directors of the various offices and outreaches around the world meet together at the annual Fellowship of National Offices. During that gathering, the directors share reports and testimonies, spend a significant time in prayer together concerning the goals and directions of DPM worldwide, and encourage one another and pray for one another and their families. Amazingly, even many years after Derek Prince's passing, the impact of his teaching legacy continues to grow and expand across the world.
