e3 USA

Our mission among the United States is simple: #NoPlaceLeft. Our desire is to see the good news of Jesus proclaimed to every person in the United States until there is literally no place left. We are striving toward this vision by equipping believers and churches to: 1) evangelize those who are far from God with the good news of Jesus; 2) establish new churches among those who believe the good news; 3) disciple new believers to become healthy, reproducing, transformative churches in their community. Now when we say “church” we don’t mean the box with a steeple. We simply mean a gathering of baptized believers devoted to obeying Jesus and living on mission together. We believe a church can meet here, there, or anywhere. Moreover, we believe it must. Over 50% of Americans are unchurched. And 53% percent of the unchurched population will not come to a church building if invited. Who is going to own this harvest field of nearly 156 million people far from God? It’s time believers are equipped and mobilized to bring Jesus and His church to all those far from God in the United States.

Les Smith - e3 Partners' Fundraiser

Thank you for your interest in my ministry with e3 Partners as we share the Gospel and plant churches among the unreached of Ethiopia, India, Eritrea, and India. We also seek to train laborers in the US to spread the Gospel in our cities and abroad.

In 1998, the Lord stirred my heart for reaching the unreached–those who have never heard the Gospel. I knew that would most effectively be done through planting churches. The Lord further clarified that calling by highlighting Eritrea, and country in the Horn of Africa just north of Ethiopia.

In 2015 I went on my first church-planting expedition to Ethiopia with e3 Partners. From the moment I met the team at the airport, the Lord knit our hearts. And as I became familiar with e3 Partners' ministry philosophy and church-planting strategies I became even more convinced the was something I needed to be a part of. The trip leader asked, "Have you ever thought about doing this for the rest f your life?" I replied that I had been thinking about that for 17 years. Immediately upon my return from Ethiopia, I began the process of joining e3 Partners ministry.

I have now been working full-time with e3 since 2018. In that time, my teams have had the privilege of reaching a number of Unreached People Groups in India, and I have begun training ministers among Unreached People Groups of Eritrea. My local team also has trained a number of churches in my area with simple reproducible Gospel tools.

Your prayer and financial partnership are what enable me to fulfill the Call of God, sending me on every mission trip and training and covering me in prayer. 

Thank you for being a partner with me in this amazing work among Hindus, Muslims, Orthodox, and Non-religious on three continents.
