Exousia -- Black Mountain, NC (2022)

Exousia is the Dunamis Fellowship International training program where PRMI raises up new teachers, new leaders, and new intercessors for the work of expanding the reach of PRMI. Exousia is where we equip our faculty, apprentice teachers, track directors and site team members. It is where you will get our DNA.

What is Exousia?

Exousia is PRMI’s leadership development process to prepare upcoming leaders who volunteer in the ministry of PRMI around the world.  As our ministry style has developed over years and our way of doing things has grown, future volunteers need to understand the DNA and history of PRMI to effectively be ambassadors of PRMI wherever they go and ministry.

Exousia will give you space to grow in your PRMI leadership skills.
