History

Dr. Tom Johnston founded the Midwestern Evangelistic Teams (MET) at Midwestern in the fall of 2001 as the practical arm of his evangelism classes. Dr. Johnston, associate professor of evangelism, gathered students every Saturday morning to share the Gospel through door-to-door evangelism in partnership with local churches.

As a vision for evangelism was caught by students, it became necessary to have outreaches at other times of the week. Meanwhile, the Lord raised up leaders to direct weekly teams. By 2011, we totaled 63 MET Team leaders who have led a total of 1143 outreaches – about 103 outreaches a year for the last eleven years! Many thousands of people have heard the Gospel, and so far there have been reported 659 first-time decisions for Christ! There are sometimes as many as 11 METs going out every week, five of those being weekly outreaches with local churches. Through the METs, students have partnered with 65 local churches in the metro Kansas City area!

It is exciting to experience MBTS and Missouri Baptist College students leading evangelism teams engaged in initiative evangelism. Each MET averages between four to five students and is involved in street evangelism, door-to-door evangelism, and street preaching. Hundreds of Midwestern students have gone out evangelizing, and more than 35,000 gospel tracts have been given out on the streets of Kansas City.
