As Ekballo, we dream in the size of continents as we carry as our watchword— “the evangelization of the world in our generation.” We mobilize people to this end; stirring people to go to the mission field, and most importantly to pray the command from Matthew 9:38— “Lord of the harvest, thrust forth laborers into Your harvest field!”

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

When God wants to do something extraordinary in a nation, He takes ordinary men and women He sets them apart and He sets them on fire.

Student Life

The Students' Daily Rhythm has been intentionally structured around the following principles: Biblical instruction, loving community, and intensive watches of prayer. The schedule is designed not only to develop individuals, but a team who will grow in God and one another.Community life is an essential component of Student Life. Students are not just part of an instructional and outreach setting, but are situated in the context of a spiritual family. Not only will Students be placed in Small Groups for intimate reflection and relationships, but will be surrounded mothers and fathers in the larger spiritual family as well.

Rigorous Discipleship

As a leadership, we know the price of advancing the Kingdom. Therefore we consider it our obligation to prepare students to overcome the great challenges in our nation and the nations of the earth. Our program is founded upon Biblical teaching, along with experiential and transformational training on the principles and practicals of leadership and prayer. Our discipleship process includes students becoming grounded in the Word of God, a strong sense of their personal union with Christ, and the practical applications of sacrificial, community life. For those willing to give themselves wholeheartedly to God and His processes in this consecrated season of their lives, we believe that you will find that you will grow, mature, and walk in faith that is beyond anything you could think or imagine.

Prospective Students

Because the very mandate of SAFA is demanding in nature, the application process is selective. Our leadership team seeks to operate in a spirit of gracious and loving discernment, and realize that not every person may be called or suited to join SAFA. SAFA is not designed to provide the proper resources for rehabilitation or extended counseling to overcome lifetime sins, deep wounding, or dire life circumstances. That said, prospective students should not disqualify themselves prematurely; we encourage all who are moved by God to apply. We recognize and rejoice that God's greatest works have been through weak men and women.


The global vision of Contend SAFA School is to penetrate the hardest and darkest places in the world through fasting and prayer, in order to establish the supremacy and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. This is our commitment: to expand these efforts into every nation until every tribe and tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.
