With the Lord

Dwight Beavers, the founder of “Voices for Christ”, went home to be with the Lord in the early morning hours of October 10, 2022. Born in 1943, born again in December 1970, Dwight launched into the spread of the Gospel with enormous energy. Initially focused on tract distribution in the Durham, NC area, he moved on to collecting and duplicating cassette tapes of reliable ministry. What we know as “Voices for Christ” was born. Dwight expanded from cassettes to reels, to CD/DVD, and to MP3 files, doing his very best to keep up with efficient ways to make good Christian teaching available. Today, the ministry he founded freely distributes tens of thousands of mp3 files per day with an extremely efficient incremental cost. Dwight had eagerly awaited the Lord’s coming for many years. After his body had suffered for the last several years, we know he is happier now than he has ever been and is in the very presence of the Lord whom he loved and served.
“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.” Psalm 116:15
