A.K. Manning


Evangelism Academy (Formerly MEA)

Galt, CA


Over a period of 17 years and 3 churches, A.K. Manning became frustrated that he couldn’t find anyone to go out with him and teach him to share his faith with the lost. Restless to go out and be a “fisher of men,” brother Manning decided to read books, take every evangelism and apologetics class his Bible College offered and equip himself. He attended conferences and workshops. He enrolled in the School of Biblical Evangelism. But nothing equipped him as much as when he decided to obey the call of the Great Commission, and “GO.” For four years, brother Manning has served as the Director of Outreach Ministries at the church he attended in Stockton. Here, he developed the curriculum for Evangelism Academy, which he has taught for the last five years. In 2017, A.K. Manning launched a small para-church ministry, Manning Evangelistic Association, to preach the gospel at events and public venues, as well as help equip every believer to do the same. In 2019, brother Manning's ministry efforts were once again focused exclusively on Evangelism Academy, citing that there is no more important call than to equip EVERY BELIEVER to share their faith. He is currently working on his first two books, "Street Preacher," and "The Preppers Field Guide to Biblical Manhood".
