EVANGELISM EXPLOSION

There are no upcoming events at this time.

As a young pastor, Jim watched all his attempts to grow his first congregation go down the tubes. His church attendance dipped. Recalling those difficult times, he said “Extrapolation made it clear that I had two-and-a-half months of ministry left before I was preaching to only my wife–and she was threatening to go to the Baptist church down the street!” 

In the early years, Coral Ridge saw great growth through Dr. Kennedy’s emphasis on sharing the Gospel with the surrounding community. Evangelism Explosion officially started in 1962. In a brief 12-year period, church membership increased from 17 to 2,000.

Realizing that he couldn’t do this alone, he made witness-training a bedrock of his ministry, utilizing on-the-job training. In 1967, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church was singled out as the most rapidly expanding church in America. In 1972, EE was incorporated with its own staff and Board of Directors. As it spread to other countries, EE materials were translated into other languages. By 1984, more training clinics were held overseas than were held in the US.

“**FIX ME** BIBLE VERSE??

By 1985, there were more Evangelism Explosion trainings held overseas than were held in the United States as EE spread rapidly across Asia andSouth America. In 1988, with EE in 66 nations, Kennedy set a goal to expand into every country. By early 1996, EE was planted in all nations of the world with materials translated into more than 70 languages. A celebration would be held at Coral Ridge in 1996 with every nation represented.

Today, the International Office provides an administrative base and raises financial support for the international operations of this ministry. EE is a multidenominational, nonprofit missions organization whose operations are dependent upon our Lord’s grace and the gifts of His people. Click here to learn more about the ministry and how you can get involved.
