Most Entrust learners worldwide are pastors or ministry leaders in various roles with local churches; pray for their evangelistic outreaches this month in celebration of Jesus’ birth, to draw more and more people into the kingdom.
Praise God for his merciful plan of salvation for us, all made possible by Jesus’ leaving heaven to live among us.
Ask the Lord to teach you in fresh ways about himself, his kingdom and your role in it, this season.
Pray that God will move on many hearts to make generous year-end financial gifts to Entrust.

What’s on your friend’s mind about the whole concept of gifts and giving this season? What kind of gift or giving is most meaningful to your friend? How has your generation demonstrated giving in either positive or negative ways to your friend’s generation? What constitutes a meaningful gift?
Giddy with excitement. That’s how Entrust’s Amber Simpson describes her emotions as she reflects on what God is doing through Messiah Community Church in Reisterstown, Maryland. One woman from the church experienced Entrust’s foundational small group shepherding course, Facilitating Relational Learning. Enthused by what she’d learned, she shared it with her church. Several church leaders then took a 6-hour version of the FRL training.
Pastor Hairston reported, “Facilitating small groups is a core competency in ministry. I assumed that this skill came naturally. That assumption was false.” Convinced of the value of this ministry skill training, the leaders now intend to complete the full FRL course to grow in this competency and pass it on. Which is what Entrust is all about.
In a world … where communists tried to stamp out Christianity. Where Christians donned costumes and alternate identities. Where Bulgarians and Romanians led the way into new lands. It’s story of clandestine operations. Of emerging African, Asian and Middle Eastern leaders. It’s the story of Entrust. Now showing on select monitors.
