Evangelism Resources (ER) is an interdenominational mission founded in 1976 to empower overseas churches to complete the Great Commission. ER supports 39 nine-month Schools of Evangelism which equip students with skills to survey a region, devise evangelism strategies, win the lost to Christ, and plant churches. They focus on regions and people groups as yet unreached with the gospel. ER also sponsors short-term Bible schools. These two-month, lay-pastor training programs have equipped over 100,000 workers, mainly in Africa and Asia. Other discipleship programs include Great Commission Challenge camps for youth, the Women's Impact Network, Inductive Bible Study seminars and prayer seminars. Web: www.erinfo.org

Great Commission Challenge Camps train youth to become tent-makers—placing a priority on fulfilling the Great Commission even while they pursue other careers. First begun in India, the movement has spread to Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar, seven nations in Africa, and most recently to the Philippines. The cost for training one youth is only $16!
Evangelism Resources has adopted 29 Unreached People Groups (UPGS) for concentrated evangelism, church planting, and discipleship. Graduates of ER's Schools of Evangelism are being equipped to minister among these groups to spread the gospel, and the ultimate goal is for indigenous members of these people groups to be equipped through Portable Bible Schools and School of Evangelism training to reach their own people! Gifts to UPG ministry provide funds for training programs.
Our portable Bible schools use the text “Called to Shepherd God’s People” written by Thelma Braun. A maximum of 42 students are trained per session to be village lay pastors and evangelists. For $20, you can provide for the training of one lay pastor for a lifetime of service to Christ. A full PBS costs $840.
Evangelism Resources currently has 34 Schools of Evangelism in operation in fifteen nations. These schools train young men and women in the most effective means of evangelism. Graduates are eqipped to reach whole regions and people groups, many of which are unreached. Each student that attends an SOE costs $400 for nine months of training. Schools train 30 at a time, so an SOE operating at full capacity costs $12,000 a year. If all 34 SOEs are at full capacity, it will cost $408,000 yearly.
The Women's Impact Network (WIN), empowers women to reach their full potential as disciples of Jesus Christ, mentoring other women in small groups. Launched in India in 2013, WIN continues to expand its influence, with thousands of women in Asia and the US meeting for discipleship. This movement has also been started in the US, and is impacting women in local churches to consider their call to fulfill the Great Commission by making disciples. WIN is poised to launch soon in Africa.
