Making Disciples and Planting Churches

ETM is a non-denominational, Christ-centered ministry located in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Sunday, October 14, 2018 we will celebrate our 7th Church Anniversary, and on
Sunday, October 21, 2018 we will celebrate our anuual Pastor's Appreciation Sunday.

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 25 years we've specialized in upstarting 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 the Strawberry Mansion section of the city.
On Sunday, February 14, 2018 ETM (west) held its first worship service 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).

We acknowledge and thank the Lord for opening these effectual doors of opportunity for us. And we extend our sincerest appreciation to all who participated in making our (2) year Building Fund Campaign a success.

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 visit or support us at one of our two locations perhaps you could include us in your daily prayers.
Prayer is our strategy for success and we welcome your assistance.
"...the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." (James 5:16, NKJV).
