The Mission of
Every Believer a Witness
Since our beginning in 2003, various surveys have reported that the number of people who actively share their faith has dropped from 10%, to 5%, to 3%. The last one we saw said only 2% of believers are actively sharing the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ. All of our training conferences are focused on seeing this change by helping pastors and leaders motivate and equip the entire congregation to actively share the Gospel.
The main training is Every Believer a Witness, held as a 4-day conference led by one of our Trainers, or a sermon series over 7 Sunday mornings led by the pastor or leader who has been trained via our online Pastor Training. With either format, we give the leader a proven Follow-Up Plan to enable them to create and maintain a culture of witnessing and evangelism®, which is THE goal of our ministry.
Founder & President
Dennis Nunn, Founder and President of Every Believer a Witness Ministries has spoken in hundreds of churches across America to groups ranging in size from dozens to thousands. Prior to Every Believer a Witness, Dennis served as a pastor for 20 years. For many of those 20 years, Dennis was also an instructor for Walk Thru the Bible Ministries with Bruce Wilkinson, and later, Chip Ingram. Dennis twice received the President’s Award as Walk Thru’s #1 ranked instructor.
Dennis’ spiritual gifts are teaching and exhortation and he designed Every Believer a Witness to make learning to share your faith extremely simple and easy.
Dennis and his wife, Jane, began the ministry in 2005. While Dennis has been the face of the ministry speaking in churches, Jane is an instrumental partner working with Dennis, often behind the scenes, where she has handled correspondence, communication with churches, bookkeeping responsibilities and much more. Jane has been the true picture of a Proverbs 31 woman and has faithfully worked in the ministry since its inception. Anyone who has been fortunate enough to know Jane understands what an integral part of the ministry she has been!
Dennis and Jane now live in Summerfield (Greensboro), NC. They are blessed with three children and five grandchildren.
Rachel began as our Ministry Assistant in early 2021. She not only contacts pastors and leaders to make them aware of Every Believer a Witness but handles all preparation and promotion when a conference or training has been scheduled. In addition, Rachel handles the ministry newsletter.
Rachel and her husband, Zac, have 3 children and live in Centre, AL, where Zac is pastor of Pine Grove Baptist Church. Zac led his people in Every Believer a Witness a few years ago, and Rachel was personally impacted. Being a pastor’s wife gives her a lot of knowledge and wisdom in interacting with pastors and church leaders. We feel very blessed to have Rachel as a part of the EBAW team.
Social Media Manager
Amy began running our Social Media in early 2022. She manages all of our social media and enjoys designing, editing and marketing fresh content for Every Believer a Witness. In addition, to working for us Amy is in ministry with her husband Josh Howland, student and college pastor of First Baptist Church Summerfield. Amy also is a full time homeschool mom of her two children. Amy believes in the mission of Every Believer a Witness and is profoundly compelled to be a witness in her sphere of influence as well as making Jesus known through social media channels.
Al received Jesus as his Savior when he was nine years of age during a revival meeting at the Jefferson Street Baptist Church in Dublin, Georgia. He sensed the Lord’s call into the gospel ministry at seventeen years of age while on a youth choir tour in Brunswick, Georgia. He was ordained into the ministry on February 25, 1974.
On August 29th, 2021, he retired as the Senior Pastor of the Bethany Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia after thirty-two years of ministry. By the grace of GOD, he was able to lead Bethany, a dying congregation, to become one of the forty-four healthiest churches in the Southern Baptist Convention. They went from a congregation of ninety on Sunday morning to seven hundred. Prayer was their launch pad for every ministry.
His wife of forty-eight years, Debra, has been a vital part of his ministry. They have two adult children, Matt, who is in heaven after battling cancer for nine years. He passed on April, 3rd, 2020, at forty-one years of age. Their daughter, Laura, and her husband, Justin Bone, live in McDonough. They don’t have any grandchildren but they do have several dogs.
He was educated at Brewton Parker College, Georgia College, Southwestern Seminary, and Southeastern Seminary.
His life verse is Psalm 56:13 NLT
“For you have rescued me from death; you have kept my feet from slipping. So now I can walk in your presence, O God, in your life giving light.”
He loves pastors and helping to equip them and their people in the work of ministry.
