Biography of Doyle Davidson
Posted July 11, 2014
Doyle Davidson was born on a farm near Sarcoxie,
Missouri in 1932. He served as a
hospital corpsman in the United States Navy
during the Korean War, spending 27 months in Yokosuka, Japan. After his return
to the states he was one of thirty students admitted to the University of
Missouri, School Of Veterinary Medicine in 1958. In August, just prior to
entering veterinary school, he was rotating the tires on his car and the
presence of God fell upon him and he heard the Lord say, “I don’t want you
to be a veterinarian, I want you to be a minister of the gospel.” He did
not obey God that day, and continued with his plan to become a veterinarian.
Upon his graduation, Doyle moved to North Texas and established a successful equine veterinary practice. In 1968, God moved in his life, and for two years an angel of the Lord rode in his car asking when he was going to preach the gospel. In 1969 the Lord told him to sell his hospital and practice and obey him and January 2, 1970 the sale was finalized.
Doyle was born again when he was almost six years old and in 1970 Jesus became Lord of his life and he was subsequently baptized in water and in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues. The Lord sent him to Israel in 1974 and on June 17 at the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem God called him into the ministry. God sent him to publicly preach the gospel in 1977 in the First United Methodist Church in McKinney, Texas as a lay speaker. In 1980 God instructed him to speak to the people in Plano, Texas. He established Water of Life Ministries in 1980 and moved into the present location in January 1981. Today he and others with him minister the gospel to the world via the internet, Roku, radio, shortwave radio and Facebook.
Doyle has been called as a servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. You can read more about his life and testimonies on this web site under Personal Testimonies and also Books.
