History

The last thing on Dave Roever's mind was going to war. But at the height of the Vietnam conflict, Roever received his draft notice. Having no desire to go into the infantry, he joined the Navy and served as a river boat gunner in the elite Brown Water Black Beret stationed in Vietnam.

Eight months into his duty in Vietnam, Roever was burned beyond recognition when a phosphorous grenade he was poised to throw exploded in his hand. The ordeal left him hospitalized for fourteen months, where he underwent fifteen major surgeries. His survival and life are miraculous.


Program accomplishments

R.E.A.'s accomplishments and programs include some of the following:

Crusades:
- Interdenominational evangelistic rallies supported by local churches and held in conjunction with school assemblies. Strategy: Crusades are designed to attract people, and especially youth, to a setting conducive to presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music, drama, and preaching.

School Assemblies:
- Relevant live presentations on key social and moral issues by Dave Roever and/or associate staff, usually conducted in conjunction with crusades. Strategy: School assemblies are conducted to encourage young people to make right decisions on key social and moral issues and to attract them to our evangelistic crusades.

Publications:
- Printed, audio and video material primarily directed to youth and/or supporters of this youth ministry for the purpose of evangelism, discipleship and education. Strategy: The objective of publications is to develop and produce relevant materials for use as ministry tools, while creating a source of revenue for Roever Evangelistic Association.

Media Presentations:
- A weekly telecast broadcast on, but not limited to, Trinity Broadcasting Network ministering both to believers and non-believers.
Strategy: Media Presentations are designed to initiate trust and awareness among the general public, presenting Jesus Christ to believers and non-believers, and recruit new supporters.

Ministry Associates:
- Disciple and mentor associate staff to assist and extend Dave Roever's impact in school assemblies and evangelistic rallies. Strategy: The purpose of mentoring ministry associates is to assist and extend Dave Roever's ministry and to develop and establish new self-sustaining ministries.

Teen Satellite Network:
- Educational programming on key social and moral issues made available to schools via satellite and video cassettes. Strategy: Teen Satellite Network seeks to build credibility and awareness among both educators and students, to enhance interest and a positive response to an invitation to a Dave Roever Crusade. TSN broadcasts will be coordinated with both short-term and long-term crusade planning.

Special Ministries:
- Missionary ministries, compassion projects and other ministry opportunities that mirror the mission statement of Roever Evangelistic Association.
Strategy: The objective of special ministries is to engage in missionary and compassion projects that mirror REA's mission statement to reach other peoples throughout our world. These projects, although valid ministries, are considered secondary to the primary focus of REA and will be pursued only as key ministry resources allow.
