We want the same thing that you want: to spread the good news of salvation to every living creature. We've held dozens of seminars all across the United States, and our method only requires an open Bible and a willing spirit.
The House to House School of Evangelism began in the summer of 2018. We asked Rob Whitacre to serve as an evangelist for House to House/Heart to Heart and begin a full time work to train churches of Christ in how to conduct Personal Bible Studies.
We know that most Christians struggle to find time away from their normal routines and therefore we wanted this school to be mobile, so several times each month he and his family go on the road and bring the training right to your doorstep.
With flexible schedules that fit the local needs of a congregation and various formats that offer different levels of training, this work has taken off and seeing exciting results. Almost daily, Brother Whitacre receives reports from the field of ongoing Bible studies and baptisms.
Currently the school offers a certificate level course and a master's level program.
Rob Whitacre was born in Carbondale, Illinois. He was raised near San Antonio, TX, attending the Northern Oaks church of Christ. He married Nicole of Nashville, TN, in August of 1996. They have one daughter, Hannah and one son, Jared. He comes from a God-fearing family of preachers, elders, and Bible school teachers. His education includes San Antonio College, Abilene Christian University (classes offered at San Antonio College student center), Southwest School of Bible Studies (2-year diploma), Southwest School of Bible Studies (graduate certificate in Sacred History), and Southern Christian University (B.A.).

In each of his works his evangelistic spirit has resulted in substantial growth.
