Equipping for Service
God’s people, whether ministry or laity, must be prepared for the challenges presented to us by our society and times. The church is not to be absorbed by culture, but the culture is to be affected and influenced by the church. Knowing what truth is and how to communicate it is the only way that can happen. An understanding of what we believe – and, very importantly, why we believe it– is essential to our mission in the world.
ExCeLL offers a tremendous opportunity to gain ministerial training and experience while fulfilling the requirements for Local, General, and even Ordination Ministerial license with the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI).

An extension of the Texas Bible College classroom to the local church.
Extension Centers for Learning on Location is an extension of the Texas Bible College classroom to the local church. Any licensed UPCI Pastor can take advantage of this program, which means that you could take these classes at your local church. It is our way of bringing the depth of the Texas Bible College curriculum in reach of everyone who desires to pursue a knowledge of God and His Word. Courses are now being offered at many churches around the nation.
The vision of ExCeLL Now is to enable the body of Christ to accomplish the task of reaching our world. Paul expressed our goal well: “…to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith…and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:12).
