Entrust

Multiplying Leaders for Multiplying Churches

JOIN THE TEAM

Rather than expending our primary energies on evangelism in a given culture, we at Entrust focus on identifying and investing in men and women, equipping them to shepherd and lead local churches biblically, practically and with servant hearts. As local churches grow deep in God’s word and joyful obedience to the Lordship of Jesus, they become instruments of transformation in their arena. Local believers then do the work of evangelism and discipling and meeting social needs within their own culture.

Join us. We need people with a variety of life experiences and skill sets. Check out the following lists, then inquire of the Lord as to how he might have you to be involved.
