Inoculating Christians Against Cults


Latest News

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This site is under construction! We are currently working on an upgrade to our appearance and on restoring some of the functionality that has been lost due to technical problems. In particular, our audio presentations are not currently working. When our "new look" debuts, they will all be back, and the problem we have had with audios not working in certain browsers (Chrome and Firefox) will have been fixed. Please watch for our new look, coming soon! 


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 Programs" link to the left.

Tom is a member of Living Word Alliance Church in West Milford, 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 at the left or to listen to the audio version on our Audio/Video page. Also, you can click the "Articles" and the "Questions and Answers" links to access some of the other written materials that Tom has produced, and there are many more of his writings on 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. Check back often, as new material will be added from time to time.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We have been having trouble with getting our audio presentations on the Audio/Video page to run in Google Chrome on some computers. If you are unable to hear the presentations using Chrome, we recommend that you use another browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.
