• Evangelism Response Center

    The Evangelism Response Center (ERC) equips and mobilizes Southern Baptists to offer prayer and spiritual counseling via telephone or online chat with people all over North America. The goal is to point individuals to the life-changing hope found in Jesus Christ, then point them to a local church for follow up on their decision.
