The Early Church House Ministries began as a vision from God to Seer, Apostle- Prophet Dr. Carolyn H. Engledow,  Founder and Chief of Staffs.  He told her to take her church back to the basic standards of the early church in Acts 4:32 and Acts 2:43-48 where they had all things common.  Then he told her to name it The Early Church House Ministries. On September 10, 2005 she began her church in the front yard of her Clearlake, California home with the founders, the late Mother Hattie L. Hendrix, Minister Dr. Mitchell  L. Hendrix,  Minister Kristyn Hendrix,  Prophetess Sharmaletha Hendrix, Deacon Kenneth Engledow, and three children.

Eventually, they started having weekly worship services, a street corner  Soapbox Evangelism Ministry, Summer Free Barbecue and Christian Karaoke Jam Sessions,  Fish N Loaves Free Meal Ministries, and Dorcas Free Clothes Ministry in the Best Western Hotel and at her business, Carol’s Errand Service.  Then her mother became ill and bedridden, so she had to close her business and care for her mother.  But she continued to minister to the public. God caused people to call her and ask that she pick up furniture and clothing to give to the poor.  Sometimes they brought the goods to her.  Her weekly biblical studies were conducted in her home.

In 2006, God told her that she would be planting churches around the world.  She did not understand the vision then.  She shrugged her shoulders and kept on doing what she was doing at that time in the ministry.  She felt that most churches in America would not accept her as a covering because she did not have a college degree in theology.  So she did not know what to do or how to begin.  She had heard a prophecy 20 years before about her ministering international.  But she did not know if the vision was from God.  God told her about it again in 2007.  But again she was not sure the vision was from God and she did not know how it would come to pass.  She was still troubled about the vision.

In 2007, she moved to Urbana, Iowa and she continued caring for her mother and ministering to the needs of the public.  Finally, her mother died in her arms on July 30, 2008.  She grieved but continued doing God’s will.  In June 2009, She moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa and began ministering to the public from her home through telephone counseling, door to door deliverance and exorcisms, a Fish N Loaves Feeding Ministry, and a neighborhood children ministry.

 She starting meeting with the public at a museum near her home in 2009 where she held weekly children ministries, arts and crafts classes, feeding ministries and biblical studies.  The community was overcrowded and she wondered why nobody hardly came to the free meal ministry and bible studies. God told her it was because she was in the wrong place of ministry.  So she repented and said God lead me to where you want me to be….Lead me God….and she went home and waited for the move of God.

She was in an online ministers website group where she met a minister and talked with him about planting her ministry in his country through his church in Ifo, Ogun State, Nigeria.  God opened the door to her international ministry on July 28, 2010, when she licensed the first 22 ministers from that church under the covering of The Early Church House Ministries International, TECHM International.  The church planting vision God gave her came to pass.  Today it is still growing in leaps and bounds in Nigeria and around the world.   TECHM Nigeria is a product of the vision God gave her.

Afterward, she connected with ministers in India, Kenya, and Uganda and the ministries God added unto TECHM  around the globe.  In 2012, she established The Early Church House Ministries International Ministries and Churches Affiliation, TECHM International Ministries and Churches Affiliation, so we would know it is not just her ministry, but a vision that God has ordained for all of the ministers of TECHM and those unaffiliated with TECHM to know that it is not just her vision or her ministry but a ministry that God has called us all to one accord, where we all have all things common. Acts 2:43-48, Acts 4:32.  We are one in TECHM, in the faith, in Christ, and in all things that the Lord is calling us forth into. There are no me’s and I’s….just oneness in Christ Jesus….and global evangelism. Today over 800 Pastors in India are affiliated, licensed and registered with TECHM International Ministries and Churches Affiliation.

And today God has caused TECHM to be planted by over 2,300 faithful ministers and approximately 2,500 ministries and churches, one radio station, one television station which is on satellite in over 68 countries of Asia and throughout the eastern and western hemisphere.  Our ministries are planted and flourishing in 72 countries throughout 6 continents through the Grace and Glory of God....which we have in Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. On December 22, 2016, The Early Church Church House Ministries, TECHM International Inc. was registered and licensed as a non-profit church in the State of Iowa, USA. In January 2017 TECHM was registered by the Federal United States Government. In the latter part of 2019, we began a "free affiliation and webpage"  global Bible School system that welcomes all Christian Bible Schools for the expansion of their schools, ministries, and the spreading of Word of God to draw the unsaved, unreached, from every "crack and crevice" of this world into God's Kingdom, to Christ. 

God is raising up TECHM International Ministries and Churches Affiliation for his glory. Apostle Prophet  Engledow is still humble. Though our ministry expanded globally we are still based out of humble beginnings.  Our international headquarters is still from a small house ministry of 6 founders in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. 

It was prophesied to Apostle Prophet Engledow 25 years ago  that she would have a ministry of “Simplicity.”  Through The Early Church House Ministries International Ministries and Churches Affiliation, TECHM International Ministries and Churches Affiliation, is growing tremendously in Asia, Africa, South America, Europe, North America, Oceania, and Australia….it still shadows the humility of its visionary. Amen.


Tenets of  Faith

1. The Scriptures Inspired: The scriptures both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired and infallible revelation of God to man and the authority of faith and conduct. This assembly accepts the Bible as the revealed will of God, as the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity of our statements of faith.

2. The One True God: The one true God has revealed Himself as the “I Am,” the Creator and Redeemer of mankind.

4. The Fall of Man: Man was created upright and good, however, man voluntarily transgressed and fell, and thereby, is spiritually dead and separated from God.

5. The Salvation of Man: Mans only hope is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Salvation is by faith through grace and demonstrated in repentance.

6. Ordinances of the Church: Water Baptism in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and by full immersion; and Holy Communion (The Lords Supper), consisting of the Body and Blood, represented in the bread and the fruit of the vine. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit: According to Acts 1:8 and Acts 2:4, with the signs of speaking with other tongues and the gifts and fruit of the Spirit.

7. Sanctification: The act of separation from that which is evil and dedication unto God.

9. The Ministry: A divinely called and scripturally ordained minister has been provided by God to lead the church in evangelism, worship. Building the body, and general leadership of the church.

10. Divine Healing: Is provided for today by the scriptures and included in the atonement for our sins.

11. The Blessed Hope and Millennial Reign: The resurrection of the just is the blessed hope of the Body of Christ.

12. The Second Coming of Christ: Includes the rapture and a return to earth by Christ with His saints for a thousand-year reign.

13. Final Judgment: there will be a final judgment at which all men will appear for judgment.

At the moment we need Christian Officials who are filled and led by the Holy Spirit to serve as TECHM Officials throughout
 Europe, Asia, Oceania, South America, and 
some parts of Africa.

For now, our global officials minister by faith, until God supplies us with the funds to fulfill our mission of Global Evangelism, Church Planting, and Humanitarian Aid Projects.

God has begun working on this vision.
