Preaching the Gospel worldwide and training others to do so is the mission of Dr. Timothy Robnett. Since 1970 Dr. Robnett has been following the voice of the Holy Spirit in communicating the gospel to as many people as possible. With a high regard for the local church Dr. Robnett has served as youth lay-leader, youth pastor, pastor and now evangelist. The Gospel is the most needed and most powerful message ever given to mankind.
In his almost 50 years of ministry, opportunities to preach the gospel have been given and followed in 45 countries. In 2011, Dr. Robnett founded Tim Robnett Ministries, also known as ETeamGlobal (ETG). In that time, ETG and its partners have preached the gospel to more than 370,000 people in 27 nations. Over 46,000 people have responded to the Gospel invitation. In addition, Dr. Robnett and ETG have trained more than 19,000 evangelists and Christian disciples in various training settings including Forum’s for Evangelists, Seminars, Conferences and Seminary classrooms.
ETeamGlobal is developing a network of evangelists committed to training other evangelists in every region of the world. ETG desires to see the role and function of the evangelist raised to a higher level in the church worldwide and so, in addition to their ministries, commit significant time and resources to training others to equip the church for the work of evangelism.
