Carolyn Birthday 04/30
Ed & Carolyn Wedding Anniversary 07/07

Both Ed and Carolyn Tutton grew up in Christian homes.  Carolyn was saved at the age of eight in Ft. Worth, Texas.   Ed was saved at the age of fourteen in Buffalo, New York.  They met at Bob Jones University and were married soon after graduation in 1967.

They planned to go to the mission field, but God had other plans for them.  Their mission board requested that they wait a year before starting their deputation.  During that year, the pastor of their home church asked them to start a Christian school.  This began a thirty-year adventure, working in the area of Christian education.  Carolyn became a teacher, and Ed established and directed both Christian schools and Bible colleges in America.

Their calling to become missionaries was realized in 2004 when they were asked to join the China Mission Team sent from First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana.  Their assignment was to win souls and write the curriculum for English training schools.  On their thirty-eighth wedding anniversary, they left to serve as missionaries in Jilin, China, where they saw hundreds saved and many baptized and added to house churches.

Three years later, they traveled to Kumasi, Ghana, to establish the Hyles-Anderson College of West Africa.  It was in Ghana, Africa, working with Adam Ogle and his family, that they realized that the great need in world missions was to close the gap between world evangelism and global church planting by training a larger number of men in their own communities and cultures to go to the “next towns” and start mission works.  From this need, Ed Tutton and Adam Ogle got a vision to produce the Teaching All Nations program which is now being used to train men around the world, using the biblical model introduced by Christ in the New Testament.  This three-to-four-year program is a step-by-step Bible college curriculum, organized into 150 lessons, using the question-and-answer method to find answers in the Word of God.

Ed and Carolyn served the Lord by training nationals around the world to win souls and plant new, independent Baptist churches.

TAN Update: Recent Developments in “Teaching All Nations”

thumbnail of TAN Jul-Aug 2022 UpdateWe at TEACHING ALL NATIONS are praising the Lord about what is happening with TAN right now. To stay updated with Teaching All Nations, go to our Facebook page. There are photos and recent updates on this site. More information can also be found at these sites: Teaching All Nations Teaser, Teaching All Nations Tanzania, and Teaching All Nations Philippines.

To give you an insight into recent developments with TAN during July and August, the following update comes from Bro. Greg Ogle, Director of Teaching All Nations. These updates will help you know how to pray for us and how to praise the Lord for what God is doing with TAN.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers for “Teaching All Nations.” In July, we attended Missions University in Indiana. What a time we had of gaining encouragement, information, and fellowship. “Teaching All Nations” was presented and received with much interest by all. While we were there, we heard wonderful reports from Nigeria about how “Teaching All Nations” has been used to start five new churches.

Another update is about Missionary Charlie Vest. He is beginning to train 40 nationals in the Philippines via ZOOM, using “Teaching All Nations.” He is an important part of the TAN team. Please pray for our continued traveling, sharing our heart for missions and multiplication of ministries. Also pray for an upcoming trip to Guadalajara, Mexico.

We are currently raising funds for trips to Uganda, Pakistan, and India. We have also been contacted by national pastors in other parts of Africa who desire us to come and conduct a “Teaching All Nations” conference.

I encourage you to contact me with any questions or comments at (309) 264-2353 or God bless you all.

How the Lord is using Bro. Greg Ogle and his wife Robin to take Teaching All Nations to another level. We thank the Lord for leading them to THRUST TAN forward at TOP speed.

I still pass out 10 tracts a day, and some days 20 tracts, with a witness to each adult and child. Last Monday, I was in the Dollar Tree near me, and I had only two tracts left to hand out. I began walking back across the store, glancing down each aisle, when I spotted a Spanish lady. As I handed her the tract with a witness, I sensed the Holy Spirit leading me to win her to the Lord; and, praise the Lord, I DID! I do pray for you all. I thank each one of you for praying for me. I still am wrapped in HIS wonderful grace. He is the Anchor of my soul!

Teaching All Nations,

Carolyn Tutton
