Single women were told they would only get to heaven through marrying and having a child. Married men could preach from the pulpit only if they were not wearing jewelry – not even a wedding ring. Lives were impacted in communist Romania by well-meaning Christian leaders who’d never received training in how to handle God’s word with accuracy. Entire doctrines had been built on single verses, taken out of context.
Entrust entered the scene, bringing training in how to rightly divide the word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15). We continue to equip men and women in ministry with skills like inductive Bible study and exegesis, because we believe the Bible is our authority, the whole Bible and all of its counsel. Pray we remain true to scripture and faithful to its counsel in all we do as we equip church leaders around the world.
At Entrust, we focus much of our energy on methodology, but never to the exclusion of the people we’re called to serve. This summer, our eMagazine, Engage, is all about people; people serving with Entrust, people served by Entrust. So, allow us to introduce Zrinka and Agnese, Mark and Ester, Roger and Dimitri and Vasili and Tim and Athea-Maria and …

A brand plucked from the burning. A heart strangely warmed. Those are two of the phrases commonly associated with John Wesley, who may or may not have been born on this date in 1703. (He was born, and it did happen in 1703; however, some question exists as to whether John entered the world on June 17 or June 28).
Wesley was number 15 out of 19 kids, son of an Anglican priest named Samuel and a godly mother named Susanna. He miraculously survived a house fire when he was five, leading Susanna to refer to her little boy as “a brand plucked from the burning,” a phrase from Zech. 3:2. When he was 35, while listening to the reading of Martin Luther’s introduction to the book of Romans, Wesley “felt his heart strangely warmed.” What happened next changed his life.
“I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation, and an assurance was given me that he had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death.” Wesley was transformed. His orderly manner of following Christ gained derogatory names at the time like “holy club” (at Oxford) and Methodism. That second one stuck. He didn’t set out to launch a new denomination, nor did he ever join the one named after his methods. He may well have been saddened by controversies debated by them today, but John Wesley’s legacy of deep passion for God lives worldwide to this day.
Happy birthday (maybe), John!
