Equipping Saints

For Transformation

I have been incredibly blessed by the material on this website.  Not only has the exposition of scripture and its principles by ECC transformed my life, but I have seen God use it in transforming several other lives, too.  As a counselor certified through the ACBC, I use this website regularly and benefit from it in my counseling GREATLY.

I have found Dr. Ellen’s teachings to be extremely helpful in my own life and in discipling others.  Dr. Ellen is a gifted teacher that communicates plainly about what God’s Word says concerning the daily issues that everyone faces in life.  He challenges me with scripture like no one else has, producing fruit to glorify God.  Thank you ECC!
