About us


OUR vision

Ekklesia Training Center is a leadership academy and as a non-profit organization, we exist for the sole purpose of educating youth and adults, so they are equipped and empowered to serve their community in various capacities with excellence. We operate out of​ a biblical worldview that understands the necessity of Christians making a contribution in their world. ETC is a leadership and youth development center, equipping and preparing generations to sustain their communities. As “Cultural Influencers”, we are trained to go into different markets or sectors: government, business, education, family, religion, arts & entertainment, media; and add value​ and influence. Everyday people do extraordinary things when they are trained, exposed, and have opportunities. According to Matt. 28, we believe going into these sectors is indeed going into the world. These 7 sectors shape our culture and influence how we live,​ so we purpose to be a part of it; therefore shaping our culture. All of our programs teach, train, and develop; from a multigenerational approach. In particular our degree of ministry program allows students to have a concentration in each of the 7 sector disciplines. The Degree of Ministry Program, prepares someone for dedicated service verses use of their education for career pursuits. Other offerings of ETC relate and connect to different sectors, providing direct services and opportunities for making contributions.

"And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account." Hebrews 4:13

Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
