EPT – Evangelistic Party Trailer Training
We continue to see great results from churches using our EPTs. We have seen over 2,000 decisions directly attributed to these creative evangelistic outreach events. The EPTs are available to all MBA churches for $250 plus a $100 refundable deposit. The rental value of items in the trailer is over $1,200. The fee allows us to replace normal wear and tear on the contents.

Churches wanting to use the EPTs must be certified (or recertified if training not up to date)  through training. The MBA provides trainings for groups of at least 10 to learn how to use, unpack, and repack the EPTs. Contact Thomas Wright to schedule training for a group of at least 10 people. It has become necessary to charge an additional refundable $100 deposit to ensure the trailer is returned clean, dry, and with all of its contents. The deposit will be used to reimburse individuals that have to clean, restock, and repair the trailers that are returned in an unsatisfactory condition.
