The key goal of FIREBRAND Forerunners is to awaken co-laborers, men and women of destiny to step into the harvest of the end-time on the different mountains and spheres of influence. Every move of the Spirit in any generation must be forerun by spiritual preparation, discipleship into the ways of the Kingdom as well as significant intercession – so that those who carry the mandate of God are equipped with stamina and stature.  

This Course is for men and women who are called as voices, scribes, thought-leaders, visionaries, influencers, intercessors and leaders, ready to be commissioned to execute the Kingdom Agenda through church leadership, Christian ministry, rural missions, entrepreneurship, social change or the home front.   

FIREBRAND Forerunners is a part of the FIREBRAND  Movement, a Spirit-led assignment that opened up in 2017 with the launch of DDK’s Books including FIREBRAND, FIREBRAND Psalms, FIREBRAND Prayer Journal and recently FIREBRAND Forerunners Book.
