Undoubtedly, planet earth is changing due to an unprecedented increase of good and evil.

In Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, Jesus identified 22 unique dynamics and challenges that would come upon one single generation.

For the first time in history, most of these signs are increasing and making global headline news.

Jesus continues in Matthew 24:14, Yet through it all, the good news of heaven’s kingdom will be proclaimed all over the world, providing every nation with a demonstration of the reality of God…

Do you understand that the Great Commission will be fulfilled in the context of wars, famine, epidemics, seismic events, and catastrophic storms? Jesus warned that deception, lawlessness, and offense would be the prevailing nature of that hour. Persecution would increase, and men’s hearts would fail them for fear, and sadly, the love of many would grow cold.  

This means that one generation will simultaneously see the greatest revival and pressure in all history occurring on earth. These two great extremes will come together in one glorious yet challenging timeframe. This will be the context of the “Billion Soul Harvest”.

…but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. Dan 11:32

The A.T.S. Extreme (Advanced Training Summit) is designed to train you physically, spiritually, and emotionally for hostile environments and the dangerous destinations we now regularly face.

It is time to do what Jesus said in Matthew; Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Meaning, that no matter what comes our way or what station of life we have been appointed, there will be a courageous and victorious church that will advance the Kingdom, anytime, at any cost.


Who Should Come?

  • CRI Responders, International Travelers, Anti-Sex Trafficking Workers, First Responders, Refuge Place Leaders, Missionaries, Great Commission Christians, Bible Believers, Rescuers, Hiders & Movers (Those working with persecuted people groups and vulnerable populations), and anyone up for an epic challenge and adventure.

Training Includes:

  • Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) This will be an adaptation of the training program that prepares U.S. military personnel to return home safely from behind enemy lines. The curriculum includes survival skills, evading capture, and techniques for escape from captivity. S.E.R.E. Training will prepare you for travel to potentially dangerous parts of the globe and/or members of targeted populations; international travelers, disaster aid workers, or anyone wanting the test and adventure of a lifetime. You will acquire critical skills and craft for advancing the Gospel in hostile environments and dangerous destinations. This will be a physically and mentally challenging event. Come expecting the unexpected and to be pushed to your limits of comfort.
  • Tactical Trauma Response Training – Training and equipping for mass shootings, bomb blasts, and mass casualty events. Learn how to sustain life with primitive resources and gain confidence in knowing how to respond to these types of events.
  • The Victorious End-Time Church – Understand what Jesus said about a specific generation that will endure perplexing dynamics as the Great Commission is fulfilled with power and glory. We will look at biblical and current prophecy, where we are in the timeline, assess threats and promises, and how to respond. There will be times for corporate worship, personal ministry, and supernatural activation in your life.

Participants- Come flexible and expect the unexpected; understand that this event is designed to train you for “worse-case” situations in hostile environments. ATS Extreme will push you beyond your comfort zone. Components of S.E.R.E training involve enduring interrogation techniques, confinement, disorientation, resisting and escaping capture, survival scenarios, and exposure to the elements. The training course will have physical and psychological challenging circumstances with high-stress situations. Attendees must be in a stable emotional state.

Participants can choose what degree of training challenges they will be exposed to by choosing the reflective team during the registration process (see teams below).  You can do this. Come ready; choose bravely but wisely. 

  • Alpha Company = Bring it on!
  • Bravo Company = Stretch me…but not too far.
  • Charlie Company = I’m hesitant and limited, but don’t want to miss this event.
