The vision
for Ephesus

Invest a year to develop a real relationship with Jesus
and learn how to make a difference in this world

Our mission

To train and send pioneers with a heart for revival.

Train & send

Training is not enough. We want to both prepare young ministers AND help them take the first steps to get connected and started in ministry. Our success is measured not in the number of graduates, but in people launched into ministry.

Pioneers

We are committed to specifically raise up pioneers who will reach new people, places, and problems. We want to prepare and send those who will start new churches, missions bases, and ministries.

Heart for revival

We want to send out ministers who have a hunger for God moving. We believe that when God chooses to move in a place, everything changes. He can do more in a day than I can do in 100 years of my best efforts.

Why is it called Ephesus?

A new type of school following a historic model

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.

You could call it the “ministry school” of the Book of Acts. 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 that God wants to train and send young people for revival again.

Our values

Start New Things

We value taking risks and initiative to bring God’s kingdom to every problem, place, and people.
(Acts 16:6-10; Is. 6:8)

Presence and Power of God

We’d rather be in the wilderness with God’s presence than the promise land without Him.
(Ex. 33; Acts 1:4-8)

Holiness from the Heart

We joyfully forsake everything which keeps us from getting closer to Jesus.
(Mt 13:44-45; Heb 12:14; 1 Tim 2:20-22)

First Love First

Our primary calling and passion is to know, love, and minister to God. Everything else comes second.
(Mt. 22:37-38; Mk. 3:14; Rev 2:4-5)
