Drew’s ministry vision is to realize a world engaged in live, authentic, transparent prayer and Gospel conversation. His passion is to identify and eliminate media and technology barriers for the critical emerging Mosaic and Millennial generations to take a first freeing step into the light out of a secret, isolating, and dark world.
Under his leadership, Need Him Global continually innovated new vertical channels of delivering the Gospel narrative to millions around the world as well as exploring ground breaking methods of offering authentic, live conversation and prayers about Jesus Christ via live voice, chat, text, SMS, and social media.
Need Him had a proven history of producing award winning creative content, and consistently delivered nearly one billion Gospel media impressions annually via proven distribution partners in radio, television and social media around the world. The ministry had many NRB awards and nominations, including Best Radio Program, Best Website, Multi-media strategy, Best TV PSA, and the William Ward Ayer Distinguished Service Award.
Prior to joining Need Him in 1996 as President/CEO, Drew Dickens was a senior executive with CBS Radio, Katz Radio Group, and Westinghouse Broadcasting in Dallas, St. Louis, and New York. A graduate of Baylor University and finishing his Masters at Dallas Theological Seminary, Drew and his wife Laurie have been married since 1982, have two grown boys, and reside in Dallas, TX. He has served on the boards of the National Religious Broadcasters Association, Boy Scouts of America-Council, Mission America, Hope for the Heart, Leadership Plano/Dallas, and attends The Village Church in Dallas.
“Blown away by Drew’s passion for evangelism and reaching the lost! Drew remains on the cutting edge of technology, using it to remain relevant in an ever-changing society. Seldom do you find someone whose actions speak louder than his words. Drew spends endless hours praying with and sharing the gospel, one-on-one.” National Presidents Gathering.
