Rev. Elizabeth A. Adleta (Liz) with her husband, Rev. Thomas L. Adleta (Tom), has ministered 30 years around the world. Through cutting-edge tools, practical training (in prayer, church planting, discipleship, & micro-enterprise), teamwork with the global Body of Christ, and focus on community transformation, they have seen God ignite rapidly-multiplying church planting movements. To date they have trained more than 4,500 leaders who birthed networks of disciple-making groups, some more than 1,000 fellowships strong.
Through Global Christian Network, Inc. Tom and Liz focused on the 1.38 billion people of the Buddhist world until 2004 when God expanded their vision to include the remaining 6,000+ least-reached people groups around the globe.
Liz now serves on the steering group of the Ethnê movement ( ), co-facilitating its prayer workgroup. Ethnê’s Harvest-Linked Prayer Strategy (HeLPS) initiative mobilizes prayer and outreach on behalf of the more than 6,000 remaining least-reached peoples in the 12 regions of the world.
Ethnê’s Ephesus vision has identified families of 50 or more neglected people groups with little access to the gospel with a view to building teams that will catalyze movements to Christ in these “gaps” such that the resultant movements cascade throughout the family of groups.
The Fellowship of Prayer Strategists is Liz’s newest project, gathering practitioners in a global relational network for the purpose of serving these Ephesus teams.
From founding the crisis pregnancy ministry Someone Cares in the early 1980’s to transitioning into overseas missions by 1986, Liz and Tom home schooled their 8 children, published a home school mission curriculum, and distributed it and other mission materials to challenge families with the Great Commission.
Over the years, Liz served on the steering committees of numerous partnerships including SEALINK, the UPG network of SE Asia, and SEANET, focused on the Buddhist world. With SEANET, she spearheaded the Billion Hours project to mobilize one billion hours of prayer for the 1.38 billion Buddhists of the world. Liz helped initiate the Shamanistic Peoples Partnership in Siberia and more recently helped form Ethne Europe, a network focused on the unreached peoples in Europe as well as mobilizing the Church of Europe to reach those with least access to the ends of the earth.
