In the 1960s and 1970s a root of prayer was born from the prayers of Dick and Dee Eastman, who established a house of prayer called the Prayer Corps (patterned after the Peace Corps) in Sacramento, California where young people would give a year of their lives to pray for souls to be saved. Today, Every Home for Christ has reached 205 nations and more than 75 million decisions to follow Christ have been made. More than 150,000 house churches have been started by Every Home, and over 80 million discipleship courses completed. Now, an average of 35,000 decisions are being made to follow Jesus Christ every day, through the work of Every Home. They are sharing the gospel of Jesus with 900,000 individuals in 180,000 homes each day.
