Dick Eastman’s Mission Center

by | Sep 30, 2003 | Charisma Archive


As part of its effort to reach the world’s least evangelized regions with the gospel, Colorado Springs, Colo.-based Every Home for Christ (EHC) opened its Jericho Center in June. The 40,000-square-foot complex will serve as EHC’s international headquarters and house six other missions organizations rent-free.


EHC President Dick Eastman said the center will help facilitate strategic partnerships among missions groups by hosting regular consultation meetings designed to coordinate world missions efforts. “The point is that out on the mission field there [will be] some level of cooperation,” Eastman said. “If these [plans] were woven together there could be an almost exponential increase in church planting.”


The author of several books on intercession, worship and missions, Eastman said the complex has two rooms for intercessory worship, which those in planning sessions will be able to observe during meetings. “When these consultations are conducted … we will see them covered with 24-hour intercession and 24-hour worship so … God is enthroned in the strategic planning.”


More than 10 years in the making, the Jericho Center was dedicated Aug. 2 in a service that included pastor Jack Hayford and worship leader Terry McAlmon.


In addition to EHC’s 45-member staff, the Jericho Center houses the Joshua Project, an agency that charts the progress of world evangelism; Morningstar Development, which coordinates humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan; and Mission America, a coalition of ministry organizations that seeks to help mobilize the church for world evangelism. The ministries are not charged rent, but are responsible for certain overhead costs, Eastman said.


Founded in Canada in 1946, EHC has distributed 2.2 million gospel booklets in 192 nations, resulting in 30 million decisions for Christ, Eastman said. The ministry oversees an international staff of 2,000 full-time employees and 14,000 volunteer “associates,” who distribute gospel material to 50,000 homes daily.
