Ensuring local churches are readily accessible to everyone—everywhere.

Our vision statement was born from a startling realization: 5.2 billion people around the world are far from God and many lack access to the life-changing message of the Gospel. That’s why we diligently work to plant churches in over 90 countries across 6 continents.

Ensuring local churches are readily accessible to everyone—everywhere.

Our vision statement was born from a startling realization: 5.2 billion people around the world are far from God and many lack access to the life-changing message of the Gospel. That’s why we diligently work to plant churches in over 90 countries across 6 continents.

Driving results for the kingdom

See how God moved in a mighty way through the efforts of e3 Partners Ministry across 90+ countries last year.

Believers Trained

Baptisms

Churches Planted

We equip God’s people to evangelize His world by establishing healthy, multiplying, transformative churches everywhere.

Our mission statement features an effective, 3-pronged strategy.

Equip

We equip believers to take ownership of the Great Commission.

Learn More

Our process begins in the comfort of an in-person or virtual setting. Here, we unpack the biblical directive from Matthew 28 to “go and make disciples of all nations,” providing practical ways for Christians of all experience levels to get involved. Believers receive a wealth of scriptural insight and simple tools to be obedient to Christ’s command, plus opportunities for ongoing, intermediate and advanced-level training. 

Evangelize

We send believers into local and global communities to evangelize the lost.

Learn More

Those who are equipped immediately put their evangelism training to work—right here at home, or abroad! Under the guidance of our experienced practitioners, they venture out into local neighborhoods to boldly share the Gospel and make disciples. We also provide opportunities for believers to participate in a whole array of short, medium, and long-term missions taking place around the world! 

Establish

We partner with believers to establish new churches across the globe.

Learn More

Using a proven church planting methodology known as the “Four Fields,” e3 Partners dispatches equipped believers into communities to help plant new churches. There, we work to train and mentor indigenous leaders who will continue to replicate this process. The result? A rapid multiplication of believers—and grassroots church planting movements which spread like wildfire.
