Project Description




Ed Birthday 10/26
Carolyn Birthday 04/30
Ed & Carolyn Wedding Anniversary 07/07/67

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 are still serving the Lord by training nationals around the world to win souls and plant new, independent Baptist churches.

Dr. Ed Tutton’s Homegoing

Dr. Ed Tutton, former staff member at Hyles-Anderson College and founder of “Teaching All Nations” and “Teaching Our People,” went to Heaven peacefully this afternoon. Dr. Tutton won the battle against Cancer today.

Dr. Tutton and his wife Carolyn have devoted their lives to Christian education both in the United States and on the mission field. They served together in Christian schools and Bible college ministry in the US before joining the FBMI China Missions Team and later the Ghana Missions Team, where they helped start Hyles-Anderson College of West Africa. After several years on the mission field, they returned to the US to work on staff at HAC, where Dr. Tutton oversaw the Student Recruitment and Alumni Departments. They spent their retirement years developing discipleship curriculum that is used worldwide to literally “teach all nations.”

Dr. Tutton was the epitome of a gentleman. He was a selfless servant who spent his life ministering to others. Heaven gained a great man today. Please be in prayer for his wife Carolyn, son Jon, and daughter Kathy during this time.
