Carolyn Birthday 04/30
Ed & Carolyn Wedding Anniversary

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.

TAN Update: HAPPY in God’s Will!

TAN Update: HAPPY in God's Will!HAPPY is the word for a couple of people in the middle of God’s will! We couldn’t be happier! These past two months, we have had the privilege of traveling 7,000 miles to attend conferences, meet missionaries, and encourage pastors to join with TEACHING ALL NATIONS for the purpose of training nationals to go to the next towns with the Gospel. It is no wonder that we are so joyful as we travel these trails, for we have had a total of 19 people whom we have personally won to the Lord while out on the trail. A very “special” thanks to Pastor Tim Fellure and Victory Baptist Church for their generosity in allowing us to park our RV at their church.


During the Christmas Season, the Lord allowed us to complete 3 additional 13-week Bible study guides. These are the following titles: “An Enduring Friendship,” “How to Sin . . . Less,” and “Blessed Are the Pains of Life.” This makes a total of 5 Bible study guides that are available to pastors, including “Lord, Increase My Faith” and “Breaking Satanic Barriers,” which were available last year. If you would like to order sample copies of any of these titles, contact Pastor Greg Ogle at gogle@cbcanton.com. All TOP Bible study guides are available on a donation basis. Donations are used to purchase flights to foreign countries to start Bible institutes.


• Pictured at the right is Adam Ogle, program director for TAN, who just returned from Peru, where he taught several national pastors how to use the TOP program in Spanish.
• Bob Bowen, a TAN board member, returned from Thailand in January 2019, where he introduced Teaching All Nations to two national pastors.
• Richard Hitt, who now works with Teaching All Nations, will leave on March 4, 2019, for Zambia, Africa, where he will introduce TAN to eight national pastors.
• Charlie Vest, project coordinator for TAN, traveled to Florida during January to arrange printing for the TOP materials. A HUGE thanks to him for providing a BIG Dell computer for our SMALL TAN office.

Thank you for your continued support of our ministry. Only eternity will reveal what your investment did.
