Simply the Truth
In 1981, watching 100's of Jehovah's Witnesses going to their convention at Twickenham Rugby Ground, Doug Harris was challenged to get involved in reaching out to those in the cults.
In the last 28 years the work of Reachout Trust has grown from a local outreach to one group to an international work reaching out to all those involved in the cults, occult, new age and all holding to non-biblical teaching. Through all the means at their disposal, especially the very active website (http://www.reachouttrust.org), it is estimated that Reachout now helps over 100,000 people each year.
The principles that Reachout Trust work under is not that, 'Christians alone are right' but that there might be a better way to the one the other group is relying on. Doug has studied the Bible for nearly 40 years and the foundation for the comments made are always the Scriptures.
Each year Doug takes between 60 and 75 seminars informing and training those to get involved in the ministry, as well as undertaking a number of TV and radio interviews.
He is the author of several books on the subject of the cults including the standard British work on the Jehovah's Witnesses, entitled The Jehovah's Witnesses - their beliefs and practices; the work on Apologetics entitled, Should Christians Apologise'; and the book that ensures you are always a state of Always Being Ready
Doug has been a Christian since 1963 and is married with three grown up children. He is an elder at a local Christian Fellowship.
