Making Disciples and Planting Churches

ETM is a non-denominational, Christ-centered ministry located in the Strawberry Mansion section of the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Our new telephone number is, 215.909.1388.

Our mission is to honor God by making disciples and planting new churches.
"Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit..." Matthew 28:19

For the past 28 years we have maintained our original ministry while actively participating in the upstart and facilitation of new ministries within our city's most vulnerable communities.
To date we have planted, re-planted, co-planted and provided meeting space for more than (11) separate ministries.

The Lord has given our pastor the vision to move our current base of operations to "Higher Ground" and we readily accept the challenge.

On Sunday, October 1, 2017 we moved ETM East into our newly acquired worship center in North Philadelphia.
On Sunday, February 14, 2018 ETM (west) was relaunched in Downingtown, PA. Our efforts to re-establish our presence in the Chester County area has begun and you are invited to visit us each Sunday and Thursday for scheduled services and meetings (see ETM West page on this website).
In the Fall of 2020 plans are being executed to purchase property for our ministry expansion project funded through our ongoing Trinity Pledge Campaign.
We thank the Lord for providing these opportunities for us. We extend our sincerest appreciation to all who labor and participate in making our presence and witness for Christ felt throughout our beloved city. 

If you are a student of God's Word, a disciple-maker and someone who possesses a missional worldview we are looking for you.
Our goal is to actively fulfill our role in the Great Commission of Christ through Evangelism, Education and the Edification of the body of Christ.

If you are unable to physically visit us we solicit your daily prayers. We believe prayer is still the most effective strategy for success and we welcome your assistance. "...the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." (James 5:16, NKJV).
