Entrust operates globally from a small home office in Colorado Springs. We offer intensive learning opportunities through training hubs in Colorado and Texas, with more such hubs in development. Staff members living in states from Oregon to Massachusetts to Georgia serve as ministry trainers, mentors, curriculum writers and editors and more.

Smith (inventor of the clothespin)

SPIRITUAL CLIMATE: 77% Christian (28% evangelical), 16% unreached according to Operation World. Barna Research says 44% of Americans now meet its criteria for being post-Christian.
