Invest a year to develop a real relationship with Jesus

How much does the Ephesus School cost?

When Paul began training young people for ministry at Ephesus, he began working doubly hard to make and sell tents to provide for the expenses of those he was training.

In the same spirit, we embrace the burden of making spiritual and ministry preparation as inexpensive as possible for those being equipped and sent. We work extra hard, so you can avoid debt.

One year could change your life forever

In Acts 19, Paul calls together a group of young people from the churches he had started to gather in the city of Ephesus. There he starts a school to practically train them to impact the world and sends them out to actually do it. The result is revival in the region: outstanding miracles, an impacted city, churches planted throughout the area, and “everyone in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord.” We believe God wants to do it again.

God is raising up a generation of young people to turn the world upside-down. We will equip and send you to be one of those making a difference. Invest a year to learn how to really know Jesus and how to make an impact in this world for Him. He is worth it, and so is your destiny.

  • "Wherever I travel and serve churches, there is an abundance of teaching and theorizing with a serious lack in the areas of training and development. Ephesus is the rare place that creates this environment of activation and equipping."
