Welcome to the home page of Dispel the Darkness Ministries! This is the speaking and consulting ministry of Tom McGovern. Tom was a member for 30 years of the religion known as Jehovah’s Witnesses. He now serves Jesus Christ as Lord and shares what he has learned in those 30 years with other Christians in order to inoculate them against false teaching and to assist them in speaking with members of that group with whom they may come in contact.

Tom is available to speak at your church or for interviews. He is also available as a consultant to Christian individuals or organizations having concerns relating to Jehovah’s Witnesses and their teachings. To see a list of presentations that are currently available for churches, conferences or other gatherings, please click the “Available In-Person Presentations” link under the “About Us” tab on the menu above.

Tom is a member of Living Word Alliance Church in Hewitt, NJ (www.lwac.org). He also holds the Bachelor of Science degree in Biblical Studies from Moody Bible Institute of Chicago, IL, having graduated with Highest Honors.

You are invited to read Tom’s personal testimony using the link under the “About Us” tab above, or to listen to the audio version on our Audio/Video page (along with many other useful presentations). You can click the “Writings” tab above to access various Articles and “Questions and Answers” that Tom has produced, as well as his blog, Dispelling Darkness. Some of these writings are directly concerned with issues relating to Jehovah’s Witnesses, and others are more generally theological or devotional in nature.

Under the “Resources and Links” tab, you will find recommendations for books to read to learn more about Jehovah’s Witnesses, along with downloads of documents that Tom has produced as handouts when he does presentations in churches and conferences. That page also provides links to a number of other web sites of ministries that can provide a wealth of further information about Jehovah’s Witnesses and other aberrant groups.

You can contact Tom directly by using the “Contact” link above, and you are welcome to utilize the Prayer Request page as well. You are also invited to review and pray for the requests that have been posted on that page.

If you do not presently know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, we urge you to read the material under the tab, “Salvation: Why and How?” on the above menu.

Check back often, as new material will be added in various areas of the web site from time to time.
