Transgenerational Impartation

A Brief History

In 2014, after nearly sixty years of ministry, Dr. Ron Cottle passed the mantle of the Christian Life School of Theology Global (CLST) and the Apostolic Council of Transformational Servant Leaders (ACTS) to his spiritual sons. He felt that those seasons of his life had reached a successful conclusion and he could enjoy the fruits of his labors and relax a bit. He was wrong about that.

By early 2017, Dr. Cottle found himself surrounded by a new group of apostolic sons and daughters. In that group was Thomas Hale, his former Academic Dean. A fresh vision for building another “Kingdom Embassy” to serve the 21st century was conceived. Consequently, Embassy College was birthed and brought into alignment under Dr. Cottle's apostolic ministry, REC Ministries, Inc.

Our Mandate

This is a word from Dr. Mark Chironna given in November of 2018 at the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders meeting in Dallas, Texas. We believe that Embassy College is a portion of our "radical promise for  another generation." We present this school to you as a "transgenerational impartation." 

The Apostolic Renewal



The significance of apostles within the Christian Church and the ministry of apostles is being profoundly restored. This theology is central to Embassy College.




The apostolic ministry has been set in the Church to oversee and release all Christ followers into their callings and destinies. Embassy College supports this role with biblical education.
