Five Priorities of Ministry:
Matthew 28:19-20; "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
- Church Planting
- Pastor Training
- Training the next generation of evangelists
The first and most important of our priorities is evangelism. It is the goal of the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association to preach the gospel to every person who has never had an opportunity to hear the good news of eternal life in Jesus Christ. Most of the world’s population has never once had the opportunity to hear the only true message of forgiveness of sins by faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. It is our calling from God to take this precious message of the gospel to every person in the world who has never heard it.
Our second priority is that, from new believers, we would be able to plant local indigenous Bible believing churches. Since 1985, we have seen thousands of churches planted. Typically, we have been able to work with existing churches in one area to help them give birth to a daughter church in another area. Other times, without the assistance of a local church, we have seen new churches born. BTEA has over 2,200 local churches involved in follow-up and church planting.
Our third priority has been to train pastors for the new local churches we have planted. BTEA has held many congresses on evangelism, pastors’ seminars, and other training meetings, and we have seen hundreds of pastors receive training in various aspects of the ministry.
An orphanage was founded by the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association to provide a Christian home for orphaned Filipino children. The orphanage was later named "Uncle Dick’s Home" after Richard Fowler, a neighbor of the Tebow's, who became like a member of their family. They led him to Christ, and he supported the ministry in many ways through the years. Upon his death, he left BTEA a sum of money to be used to establish the orphanage.
Uncle Dick’s Home is located in Lamsugod, Surallah, South Cotabato, Mindanao, Philippines, and is home to 50 orphans and 13 staff.
Since 1985, over 1,000 high school, college, graduate students, and adults have given two to five weeks of their summer to travel overseas to the Philippines with the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association. These summer missionaries have had the opportunity to share the gospel in schools, barangays, government offices, marketplaces, and malls. During these meetings, individuals have had the chance to minister through preaching, singing, and personal testimonies.
