Ministry Description
Evangelical Training Association comprises a membership of seminaries, colleges, universities, institutes, and churches committed to providing quality training resources to the church for equipping lay volunteers to serve Christ more effectively. The Association implements this purpose through its membership by encouraging, developing, facilitating and monitoring an instructional curriculum and teacher approval program for church workers. The outcome of this implemented purpose is a unique cadre of ETA-approved teachers and training materials for the church.

Since 1930, ETA has been committed to one passion—providing training, programs, materials, and services that help Christian churches and education organizations achieve their goal of equipping lay leaders for transformational ministry within and through the local church. ETA is a recognized leader in developing lay leaders to more effectively realize Christ’s Great Commission.
