About the Founders

 

Tom and Carolyn Curtis had a vision to see souls saved in every town, city, county and state in America. That is the plan and purpose of SOS Events.  For several years they worked winning people to the LORD in door to door evangelism, going to fairs, talking to people wherever they could about the LORD.  

Realizing that they were limited in time and strength, their vision could not be reached in their lifetime, they worked for three years on a soul winning program to reach the lost in America, by training churches to go to events in their communities with “event evangelism.”

 

 

 

 

 

Tom and Carolyn were married in January 2001 and immediately started to put together ideas and material for SOS Events.  Tom had 20 years of experience winning people to the LORD, since the day he was saved in 1980. His conversion came after the death of his son, Nick, who was 12 years old.Nick was playing in his backyard when a gasoline can spilled on him and one of his playmates lit a match and he was burned over 80% of his body.  After three months in the hospital, Nick asked his Dad if he knew Jesus personally, Tom said, “Nick there was no way anyone could know Jesus personally.” Right after that Nick died.

Nine years later, Tom was saved when a man came into his office and told him he needed Jesus. That night Tom went to church with Wally, and Tom heard for the first time in his 44 years that Jesus died for his sins. Tom prayed, was born again and gave his life to the Lord to serve Him the rest of his life.
  

His burden from that day on was to tell as many people about Christ as he could because no one had told him until he was 44 years of age. For 25 years he has faithfully witnessed and won many people to the Lord.

Tom worked with a ministry that went to county and state fairs winning people to the LORD. After many years with that ministry, he met Carolyn at a missions Conference.

Carolyn was saved at 21, on the day she was going to end her life by stepping into the waters of Niagara Falls.  That morning she met with her boss, who told her about how much Jesus loved her. This was a totally new concept for her and as she sat by Niagara Falls read the tract he had given her and she ask Jesus to forgive her sins and save her.

 

Shortly after that, she married the man who witnessed to her about Jesus. After rearing 11 children, teaching in Christian school, soul-winning for 30 years, she and her husband went into ministry full time going from church to church, doing whatever they could to help the Pastor, most of the time going door to door soul-winning.

After the death of her husband she continued in the ministry alone until she and Tom met and married in Jan. 2001.

Not only were they married to one another but the marriage of two ministries with the combined experience of 60 years of winning people to the LORD came into existence. Event Evangelism was born.
