A Distinctive Approach
In 1973, God burdened a young Dallas Theological Seminary graduate named Larry Moyer to start an evangelistic association to champion the gospel with a commitment to three distinctives:
- A clear presentation of the gospel.
- A careful handling of Scripture.
- A core doctrine of grace.
Armed with a passion for those who don’t know Jesus and a God-given calling, Larry created a simple method of sharing the gospel that anyone could learn. His “Bad News/Good News” method has become a cornerstone of sharing the gospel for thousands.
Throughout the 1980’s, EvanTell’s impact from large-scale events grew, but churches who were hungering to be evangelistic in their everyday ministry began asking Larry to capture his passion and message in a way that could be used by anyone. As a result, EvanTell developed the You Can Tell It! and You Can Preach It! Seminars, which promote the three distinctives.
In the 1990’s, the interest in EvanTell’s clear and simple gospel approach continued to gain tremendous momentum and we began certifying instructors. The new model boosted our reach exponentially and the ministry quickly experiencing a worldwide impact.
During the early 2000’s, Larry challenged the ministry’s Board of Directors to help him ensure that the ministry would live well beyond him and to continue boldly declaring the gospel according to the core principles God burdened him with in 1973. God has honored that request. Through the generous support of individuals, churches, and foundations who are committed to declaring the gospel through grace-filled methods and resources, the scope and impact of the ministry has exploded.
Today, in-depth training seminars, workbooks, tracts, and innovative evangelism resources are just a slice of EvanTell, yet these resources provide the fuel for ministry taking place all over the world. We are honored to train a fast-growing network of evangelism instructors, mentoring entire churches, and activating believers of all ages, walks, and cultures to boldly declare the gospel.
