We have an incredible opportunity to help a ministry at a crucial juncture. Yesterday I found out that our dear friends at The Ezekiel Project School of Evangelism (TEPSE) have had some adjacent property come up for sale. This property would open up some significant opportunities for the local growth of the school. I took a moment to ask Chris Schroeder about the situation, and he stated that the need is approximately $165,000. This purchase would add 5 acres to their current property. It would give the opportunity to expand as the Lord leads in the future and provide more classrooms and living quarters for students. In short, it would allow for growth of this incredible program to happen on location.
Chris Schroeder and the other instructors at TEPSE are doing something that is pumping life into local meetings. They’re training evangelist and gospel workers. They’re educating and mentoring men and women to go out in the manner of the great commission and “Make Disciples” of every nation. These graduates become active members of local meetings, knowing how to study, teach, and care for the local body. Training like this is something that we with-in the Assembly movement should be falling over ourselves to encourage and support.
As a 13-year-old, I had older siblings accepted into the TEPSE 2-week evangelism seminar. I desperately wanted to do what my older brothers were doing. I asked my parents, and they asked Chris. I ended up being able to go and train with TEPSE as a young teenager, and it changed my outlook on life. I realized that there was a methodology that could be used to approach those around me. I saw my father train at one of the TEPSE evangelism seminars and begin to practice outdoor evangelism courageously. These skills that TEPSE teaches are not widely mentored or taught. God has gifted TEPSE with the capability of imparting these and many other essentials to the students that live in residence with them.
Please consider supporting this property acquisition that TEPSE is prayerfully approaching. Consider before the Lord if you can support it financially, either yourself or your assembly. Consider encouraging a young person to attend their school. If you haven’t had the opportunity to do so, consider attending one of their evangelism seminars, you won’t be sorry if you do. Ultimately be before the Lord on behalf of this school as they seek to honor Him in ministry.
TEPSE is a 501c3 faith-based ministry committed to being a tuition-free academic institution. If after prayerful consideration, you feel the Lord leading you to help support this current need. Please contact me at [email protected] to let me know your plans. We would like to pass on an estimate of funds by the end of this coming weekend so that TEPSE can put a bid on the property.
