Agora Evangelism Ministries is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Christian outreach ministry headquartered in the United States, dedicated to leading souls to Christ by introducing them to His free gift of Salvation and training soul winners so they are effective in reaching the world with the Gospel.
We believe the best way to engage people is to go to them, as Jesus did, in the marketplace. You'll find our volunteers, which we train and equip to make a clear presentation of the gospel, everywhere from local carnivals to state fairs, at national events and in international locations. Agora teaches local and foreign churches how to share Christ to reach their communities and partners with them to set up evangelism booths at community events so they can provide follow-up and effective discipleship to those newly saved.
We do not charge any money for any of the things we do, or the materials we hand out to the people we encounter. We exist and operate on charitable contributions, alone. The Salvation of Christ is given freely to us; we, in turn, bring people to the Lord without cost to them.
Through our efforts here in the states and abroad, over 75,000 people have come to know the Lord as their Savior. They have been given the opportunity to know and grow in Him and enjoy a life that has peace that passes all understanding! Praise God for His goodness!
