Completing the Commission, One Family at a Time!
Gospel booklets, systematically distributed home-to-home, are the backbone of Every Home for Christ's mission to reach every family in every home on earth with the Gospel. A Gospel booklet can be read in private by a member of a household, or read aloud to an entire family. A Gospel booklet can be kept and read over and over again until the Lord speaks to the heart of the reader, or it can be passed on from one person to another, touching hearts and changing lives along the way.
Through more than 55 years of ministry, Every Home for Christ has mobilized churches to systematically distribute more than two billion (2,000,000,000) gospel booklets home-to-home in 191 nations. And the results have been phenomenal!
To date (May 2002), an amazing 27,757,976 people have responded to EHC outreaches by receiving Christ as Savior and/or requesting EHC's free Bible study materials to help them learn more about Jesus.
As an added blessing, more than 43,000 home fellowships called Christ Groups have been planted and nourished by EHC workers in remote villages in nations like Africa, China, India and Nepal, where no churches had ever existed before!
Every Home for Christ does not send missionaries. Instead, we always work with Christian nationals - respected leaders who know the language, ways and customs of the people. Working with Christian nationals also helps minimize ministry costs, enabling EHC workers to evangelise a family and provide follow-up ministry at a minimal cost.
We've come a long way since October 6, 1946, when a young Canadian pastor named Jack McAlister launched the ministry as a radio outreach called Tract Club of the Air. Today, under the name Every Home for Christ and under the leadership of EHC President Dick Eastman, EHC is on a mission to reach every home in every nation with the Gospel by year-end 2010.
Dick Eastman's passion for reaching the world with the Gospel is driven by a devotion for prayer. Dick has written more than a dozen books on prayer and evangelism. He also headed an international prayer ministry before becoming President of Every Home for Christ in 1987.
Grounded in prayer and backed by more than 50 years of ministry success, Every Home for Christ are inviting believers like you to join us on a march to the last home.

Ministry Endorsements (from well-known servants of God)
|"As I have travelled around the world, I have become convinced that one of the greatest needs in the missionary enterprise is to scatter the Gospel by the printed page in every part of the world, something that is central to the work of Every Home for Christ. May God continue to bless Every Home for Christ."|
|"For the Great Commission to be fulfilled literally, the church must go where people live. Every Home for Christ has precisely this vision, already conducting systematic, house-to-house literature campaigns in 191 nations. Per dollar investment, there are few opportunities that can match the distribution of evangelistic literature. I commend Every Home for Christ and their great ministry to help reach every home in every nation of the earth with the Gospel."|
Bill Bright, President/Founder
Campus Crusade for Christ
|"For years and years, since I was a young man in Argentina, the blessings and benefits of Every Home for Christ have touched my life. God has used Dick Eastman and Every Home for Christ to reach out around the world. We thank God for the great Christian literature ministry that you have."|
Palau Evangelistic Association
|"The house-to-house evangelism vision of Every Home for Christ is key in completing the Great Commission."|
Dr Luis Bush
AD 2000 & Beyond Movement
|"I know that Every Home for Christ is reaching millions of people with the Gospel through intelligent, carefully planned, anointed-by-the-Holy-Spirit, effective missionary evangelism."|
Dr Pat Robertson
Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN)
|"EHC is doing some of the most strategic missions work in the world today. One reason EHC is effective is their extensive experience at empowering nationals to win the lost and plant churches among the least-evangelised people groups. EHC is more efficient with the dollars we invest than any ministry I know."|
Pastor Ted Haggard
Senior Pastor, New Life Church
Colorado Springs, Colorado
|"For more than 30 years I have prayerfully considered the problem: How can we evangelise the world in the space of one generation? Long ace of one generation? I was convinced that we could never send out enough missionaries. For a while I gave up hope. But there must be a way. After travel and study in nearly 100 countries, I have come to this conclusion - the only way we are going to be able to carry out the Great Commission, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature" will be by means of the printed page. By the systematic use of the printed page we shall be able to enter into every home and thus reach every individual with the gospel message."|
