Entrust was launched to help Christians isolated from other believers by authorities who wanted to suppress and eliminate them. Several ministries working secretly behind the Iron Curtain recognized the need for training for pastors and church leaders. They decided to join forces for maximum kingdom impact.
Originally called Biblical Education by Extension, this multi-mission collaboration began in 1979.
Because formal seminary training wasn’t an option, Entrust equipped men and women in interactive small groups.
In 1989, with the fall of communism, former totalitarian states were suddenly thrown open. Entrust was in place to help national believers and navigate new freedoms.
Entrust’s Cold War legacy is a trusted entity strategically positioned to equip Christian leaders worldwide, particularly in under-resourced areas.
