EBTC has just recently celebrated 20 years of ministry in Europe—and in God’s grace, they’re not done yet!
As we’ve now witnessed the 504th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation (October 31st), it’s a joy to see how God’s hand is still hard at work to reform His people.
Much of Europe has grown cold to Christ, but EBTC is an exception. They’re grounded in the doctrines of grace that ignited the Reformation, and they stand on the same German soil as men like Martin Luther before them, carrying the same ambition: “Train Jesus’ disciples for life and Church ministry.”
God has brought this about, and He has blessed it too.
These first 20 years have yielded over 2000 graduates from EBTC’s training programs. These graduates have gone out to invest in their families, in their churches, and in their communities. Beyond this, God has enabled EBTC to plant numerous churches and even publish over 100 different books for circulation, with more in the queue.
EBTC is incredibly industrious—but they haven’t done anything alone.
Many hands have helped them over the years, ranging from faithful prayer partners to world-famous preachers. In any and every way, EBTC’s first 20 years bear the fruit of each investment.
John MacArthur comments,
“It’s very hard to believe that it has been 20 years of ministry at EBTC there in Germany, and all across Europe. Nothing is more encouraging to me than long-term faithfulness in the ministry…I have some wonderful memories of the times when I was able to be a part of [EBTC’s] ministry several times in several places and obviously to this day, they are very precious and vivid memories.”

Thank you for your prayers and for your provisions for the Christians in Europe. Please join us in praising the Lord for His tireless work to reform us into the image of His Son.
Semper reformanda—always reforming.
