Would you like to be able to share your faith in Christ every day as a lifestyle?


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 if 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 their faith in Christ with anyone!

The "Make a Difference” or "M.A.D. Live Event" is a 4-hour event that is presented “Live” in churches. We usually do these on a Saturday or a Sunday.  Don has taught this over 700 times in 36 states and Canada, equipping over 41,000 people. God has blessed us to see over 1,700 give their lives to Christ at the Live Events. All praise, honor, and glory be to God!  We’d love to come to your church to help equip the believers to begin sharing their faith in obedience….without fear or embarassment.  Putting the teaching into practivce will transform your Christian life into the great adventure that God intended for each of us to experience!

January 2024 Ministry Report

January 2024 - Monthly Report

January is normally a very busy month for bookings. This year that was not the case. We did complete three M.A.D. Live Events in January, two of which were in partnership with Billy Graham’s “The Light FM” radio network. One of these two events was held at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin, TN, and at the other one was at the Open Door Baptist Church in Hickory, NC. The third one was in Taylorsville at Bethlehem Baptist Church. Normally we lose about 20% of those who pre-register through “The Light”. Not this year! They printed 600 handouts and ran out! Wow! Without a doubt, this was the largest group we have ever had with them. What a day!

We ended up equipping a total of 745 people at these 3 events this month! Glory to God! In addition, 12 more people gave their lives to Jesus Christ at our events! Wow! This partnership has been invaluable to us as a means of getting exposure to what we teach. To illustrate, last year we completed 37 M.A.D Live Events and 18 of them came as a direct result of our partnership with “The Light FM”.

I received a note from a lady who grew up around the corner from where I grew up in NJ. I knew her and her brother when we were young. What she is writing about occurred in 1974. I had only become a believer about a year before this happened. What a nice surprise to hear from her! “I will never forget how you witnessed to me on one of the VHS Jazz Ensemble competitions. I was 15 years old and backslidden. You drove the bus for us. You, Glenn, and I sat on the floor of a hallway where you both prayed for me, and I re-dedicated my life to Jesus. Forty-nine years later, I’m still serving Him and love Him with all of my heart. I can’t thank you enough for the time you made for me which helped me get right with God again. No, I will never forget Don Sunshine and what he did for me!"

If you’re reading this letter, you most likely have attended one of our Live Events at some point. So, are you sharing your faith every day? If not, this would be a great time to approach your Pastor and ask him to bring me back for a refresher and to equip those who didn’t attend the last Live Event that I did at your church. Time is short. We all need to obediently tell others about Jesus and I can equip believers to do that! Our ministry continues almost exclusively by word of mouth. We need your help!
