The history of Heart Bible for the Nations

While raising their three sons, Equipping Evangelist had been serving in pastoral roles for 13 years, and his wife worked as an RN.  They started their missionary career by planting 3 Hispanic churches in the Chicago Suburbs.  After their sons were married, EE began to train pastors in Central America, focusing on preaching expository sermons. 

Although they felt the Lord wanted them to serve together, they didn’t know how his wife would serve, since she didn’t have formal seminary training.  At the same time, it became clear that many of the pastors EE was teaching had minimal education and the literate-style methods he was using seemed out of reach for them.  

Then the Lord brought them to a Missions’ Conference in the US, where they were exposed to the concept of Orality and Chronological Bible Storytelling in Missions.  Sensing that this could be a solution to both dilemmas, they attended various training workshops and adapted what they had learned to their own teaching contexts.  Immediately, they saw how they could both teach and how participants could learn, tell and teach very effectively using the narratives of the Bible.

After time and experience, it was clear that the Lord had not only shown them a wonderful tool for evangelism and discipleship, but also a way to build their own knowledge of the Bible and deepen their faith.  

Thus, the concept of “growing a Heart Bible” was conceived, and finally, after years of use in local and international ministries, Heart Bible for the Nations was born.

The first “Heart Bible church” sprang up in Venezuela in 2022, and today, there are more than 50 Heart Bible churches, ministries and schools around the world.
