Don Sunshine Ministries has been privileged to touch tens of thousands of lives and see thousands come to faith in Jesus Christ through our teaching people how to share their faith in Christ every day...without fear, embarassment, or hesitation.

Jesus commanded His followers down through the ages to “Make disciples of all nations”.  So let me ask you a question, “How are you doing with that?”  If Jesus commanded us to make disciples and you are not sharing your faith and beginning the discipleship process, do you really believe that one day you’ll hear Him say, “Well done My good and faithful servant?”  As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to be His full time Ambassadors representing Him to the lost people in our lives. Yet for some reason most professing followers of Christ never share our faith in Christ with anyone!

The "Make a Difference” or "M.A.D. Live Event" can change that and help you to be obedient to this call on your life.  Don has taught over 500 times in 24 states and Canada. We have equipped over 30,000 people and have been blessed to see over 1,500 get saved at the Live Events. All praise, honor, and glory be to God!  For more information, please click on the “Speaking” tab above.

Merry Christmas!  

I wanted to tell you how much we appreciate your love, prayers, and financial support!  Please understand that we cannot continue to serve Christ full time without support from our brothers and sisters like you!  Although we have yet to be fully funded (we just over 60%), the combination of our regular monthly support and the love offerings that we receive at our M.A.D. Live Events, have kept us alive and serving Christ full time for 11 years.  This is a tribute to God’s goodness and faithfulness in using you to financially keep us going!

For God’s honor and glory, here’s how the Lord used us in 2019:

  • We completed 55 M.A.D. Live Events this year - the most we’ve ever done in one year.  Overall, we have completed 633 events is 26 states and Canada so far.
  • 3 of these events were done in partnership with Billy Graham’s radio station, “The Light FM”, Liberty University’s radio station, “The Journey FM”, and KSBJ radio, the largest Christian radio station in the USA, located in Houston, TX
  • 2,981 people attended and completed the training - average 54 people per event
  • We have now trained 35,342 people how to share their faith in Christ every day as a lifestyle
  • 72 people indicated on their evaluation forms that they had surrendered their lives to Christ in repentance and faith
  • Spoke for 5 days at the Alton Bay Christian Conference Center Camp Meeting in NH
  • Spoke and shared the Gospel with 125 people who participated in the “The Light FM” Annual Sporting Clays Classic and Fund Raiser
  • 3 times I filled pulpits on Sunday mornings
  • Shared the Gospel at a local Cub Scout Pack Meeting
  • Spoke and shared the Gospel 3 times with those being served at our church’s food pantry
  • Attended Daytona Bike Week and shared the Gospel one-on-one with many people
  • Shared the Gospel one-on-one 5 times while off-road riding at local off-road parks
  • Hosted our 13th Ultimate Adventure trip to Utah - 13 people attended - the trip happened, although I was unable to attend due to the coronary artery issue.
  • Shared the Gospel one-on-one over the past year as God provided Divine appointments
  • Recruited 892 new Pocket Testament League members this year (9,068 overall).  Members ordered 32,119 Gospels of John this year to be shared (203,898 overall)


We are now accepting reservations for our 2020 trip to Utah. The trip will run from June 28th to July 7th.  Cost is $1,795 per person plus travel to Salt Lake City.  All we need is a $500 deposit per person. The balance isn’t due until mid-late May of next year. No experience is necessary, and you don’t have to be in great shape to participate and enjoy what we have planned.  There are 2 videos on our website so you can get a feel for what we do on the trip. There is also a spiritual emphasis on the trip.  If you’re interested or have questions, please contact me ASAP as reservations need to be made.


Someone gave me a great suggestion, but I don’t know how to implement it.  A lady suggested that I record my training and post it online in 4-8 segments, each for a fee, and market it to Pastors and church leadership on Facebook.  Lord willing we’d be able to equip many more people and hopefully open new doors of ministry for Live Events.   If any of you are knowledgeable about how to do seminars and market them for a fee on Facebook or elsewhere, I’d love to speak with you about it.  We don’t have a budget for this, so if you could do this “for the Kingdom”, that would be great!  Please call me.


We thank those of you who have sent in funds to help pay off this debt. What a blessing you are! However, today we have a great praise!  God took care of the debt in its entirety!  The RV will be paid off!  Thank you for your prayers and for those that contributed to this need.

Again, all of this ministry happened because of your commitment to help us serve our Savior full time.  

THANK YOU SO MUCH for investing in God’s Kingdom and partnering with us!

Sharing time at a Cub Scout Pack Meeting in TN

I was asked to speak at a Cub Scout Pack meeting tonight in Jonesborough. They needed a veteran or police officer to speak to qualify for a badge. I shared my Cub and Boy Scouting background, some police and Game Commission stories, and I passed around my old IDs for the kids to see. After answering questions, I shared a fictitious story that illustrated that we all have sinned and we're all in need of a rescuer. Then I shared the Gospel and gave all of the kids and adults an opportunity to surrender their lives to Christ in repentance and faith. I have no idea what the Lord did, but He knows what happened in people's hearts. Praise God!
