Canon David Brewer has been serving within TICCN since it’s formation in 2015. He is based in England where he is an Associate Pastor of Living Faith Church in Greater Manchester. Within TICCN he helps to direct and coordinate the international missionary work. This important work impacts over 1800 churches in over 40 different countries internationally.
He was born into a farming home of devoted evangelical Methodists in November 1944. God powerfully intervened in his life when at two and a half years old he contracted Meningitis. The local hospital in Preston said that there was nothing that they could do for him and suggested that my parents took me home to die peacefully. However, God had other plans and the local Methodist Church commenced to hold a special weekly prayer meeting on his behalf. After only a few weeks God answered the fervent prayers of the righteous, and he was allowed home with the commendation of: “The first ever complete cure from Meningitis.” That took place in 1947 and still today Canon David is preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom which includes healing. He can testify to receiving healing in many other ways, here’s two more examples from his own personal testimony: During 1980 I started to experience severe Rheumatic pains in both knees. This soon became so painful that I was unable to sit for thirty minutes at once. At this point I called the Elders of the church to anoint me with oil and I received total deliverance. Here I am over 30 years later without a trace of pain in my knee.
One day in 2003 while at work I had a severe pain in the centre of my chest. After the weekend I visited my doctor who thought that I should be checked over at the hospital. Two days later I was at an appointment at Royal Preston Hospital for an exercise ECG. The diagnosis was that I had Angina.
At that time I was a HGV driver, and the implications of this result were not very good so I booked a private appointment with a cardiac consultant for his advice; which was that the ECG result was probably a fluke and he would arrange me another exercise ECG at a different hospital that specializes in cardiac care. Four weeks later I was at Blackpool Victoria Hospital for my second exercise ECG. The results confirmed the previous diagnosis and I was immediately booked to have an angiogram, I asked “is an angiogram reliable” to which I got the reply “unquestionably reliable.”
By this time the DVLA driving License authority had revoked my HGV License, therefore my employer said that I no longer had a job.
There needed to be a touch from God!
During the waiting time for my angiogram I again requested to be anointed with oil to receive my healing. A few weeks later I returned to Blackpool Victoria Hospital and had an angiogram. Five minutes later the same cardiac consultant that I had seen privately, had performed my second ECG, and now had performed my angiogram, came to my bed side and declared “David, I don’t understand this, but there is nothing wrong with your heart, there is nothing wrong with your arteries, and you do NOT have angina. You should have your driving license back next Monday morning”.
That is over ten years ago, and I have never had another chest pain, and I feel fitter than I did at twenty one.
I now believe that the Bible says what it means and means what it says. This has caused me to experience many signs and wonders following my believing.
