What is the Ekballo DTS?

The word Ekballo is to cast out, drive out and send out with a notion of violence.  (Matthew 9:38)

We will foment a cultural revival by creating an environment where you can maintain zeal for the Lord during your DTS, but more importantly when you go to where ever God is calling you. We want to send you there! Whatever Sphere of Influence or Society being Family, Religion, Education, Government, Media (Communication), Celebration (Arts, Entertainment, Sports), or Economics (Business, Science, Technology). We want to send you to those places! Bringing forth a lifestyle and culture will reflect God in you leading to a shift and transformation in the people, places, and spiritual environment around you.

But before being sent out (or Ekballoed), we will spend time learning more about God, His Nature, what He is thinking of you, and your original design!

Encounter God

Start out by taking intentional time to know God more intimately, finding first your purpose and identity in Christ. Everything we do must be grounded in the truth of who God is.

Get Trained

Our hands-on training gives you the platform to be able to discover and develop your gifts and talents so you can use them to make God known anywhere He calls you to.

Be Part of Something Bigger

DTS is the starting point for the adventurous ones who want to be part of something bigger than themselves: Knowing God and Making God Known.

Take Action

What we learn doesn't just stay in the classroom. We take it to the nations! You're invited to the greatest adventure of your life.
