WADSWORTH, Ohio – November 19, 2009 – David C. Pack, President and Pastor General of The Restored Church of God, is appearing in a series on The History Channel. The popular cable network is available to over 200 million households in over 70 countries and in 20 languages.
Titled The Nostradamus Effect, the series addresses end-time predictions. Mr. Pack’s interview excerpts appear in the episode titled “Satan’s Army,” which premiered November 11. It focuses on the biblical book of Revelation. (Check local TV listings or www.history.com for additional showings; episodes are also available on iTunes.)
In the program, Mr. Pack highlights factors that lead some to believe the end of civilization as we know it is fast approaching. Commenting on his interview, Mr. Pack stated, “I bring a clear and different viewpoint to the program, and as a result my comments stand apart from the other voices presented.”
As Pastor General of The Restored Church of God (founded in 1999), Mr. Pack oversees the world’s most extensive biblically based websites, rcg.org and realtruth.org. He has established over 50 congregations, authored more than 20 books, and has written hundreds of booklets and articles. As Editor-in-Chief of The Real Truth magazine and voice of The World to Come program, he has reached millions around the globe.
Mr. Pack grew up in Lima, Ohio. He focused largely on sports and competitive swimming for 14 years, achieving high school all-American honors, and trained for the 1968 Olympics.
Hearing Herbert W. Armstrong’s World Tomorrow radio program during his senior year led to intensive study, and Mr. Pack became a member of the Worldwide Church of God soon afterward. Declining acceptance to Dartmouth College, as well as an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy and numerous swimming scholarship offers, he chose to attend Ambassador College in Pasadena, California, world headquarters of the Church. He entered the ministry in 1971, serving congregations in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, New York, New Jersey and Ohio.
Commenting on the organization he now leads, Mr. Pack added, “The Restored Church of God’s materials address the concerns of the average man and woman, without soliciting funds, proselytizing or involvement in politics. All literature and programs are offered free of charge and in the public interest, and we offer more materials on prophecy—the truth of it!—than any other organization on earth.”
With its Headquarters in Wadsworth, Ohio, The Restored Church of God announces the unknown, but ultimate message of hope to all nations. The Church, which has congregations in over 60 countries spanning six continents, freely distributes many millions of books, booklets and articles across the globe annually—many of which are available in 11 languages—and has the world’s most extensive biblically based websites: rcg.org, realtruth.org and worldtocome.org.
