Ed Elliott - World of Life World Outreach

Ed Elliott is the founder of World of Life World Outreach, he has been involved with world missions for over thirty years; eighteen were spent living and working in Africa. During that time, they have had the privilege of seeing over three million people receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Working with the local pastors, they were very instrumental in the planting of churches throughout Southern and Central Africa. They have helped train thousands of pastors and evangelists to do the work of the ministry through teaching and training conferences and seminars. Many of these conferences and seminars were held in remote areas where the ministers would not have otherwise had the opportunity for training.

For the past 20 years, WOLWO has been working with the underground church in Vietnam and Laos. Through these relationships, a trust has been established that has been very instrumental in opening opportunities to spread the gospel in those nations and other parts of Asia. They have pioneered, trained leaders and evangelized in countries that have been closed to the gospel. The pioneering teams they have trained have planted new churches and evangelize all over Vietnam and Laos.

One of the major focuses of Ed's ministry today is sharing with leaders and congregations about God's amazing love for them. These truths have helped believers evangelize more effectively and many pastors have seen incredible growth in their churches as people learn to walk in the reality of God's love for them.
