What pastors are saying...
"I highly recommend Ebo and his ministry for any church. Through Ebo's ministry, many people came back to Jesus, reconciled relationships and broke free from addictions. Ebo's message and testimony were full of the word and he flowed well with our creative planning. He also uses humor and boxing illustrations to really engage the church. We have invited many special guests over the years and Ebo was as effective as anyone we've ever had here. Don't hesitate to have him at your church."
- Pastor Dave Divine, The Church at Chapel Hill, Douglasville, Georgia
"People of today are hungry for truth in a time where the truth is exchanged for a lie. Ebo brings the truth to people who are tired of fighting their way through life. The Lord has anointed Ebo to share the amazing works of God upon his life and the lives of others in a dynamic and powerful way. Direct and straight-forward in speech, Ebo captivates his audience and leads them to the altar of the Lord!
" - Pastor Pancho Juarez, Calvary Chapel Montebello, CA
"It was a tremendous honor to have Ebo Elder speak Sunday morning at RIO Revolution at our 9 am and 11 am services. I would highly recommend this talented speaker as he delivered an astounding word of encouragement and perseverance totally based on the principals of Gods word. When you hear this story of an incredible come back not only in the ring, but also in his personal life, it will challenge all listeners to move forward and win the prize that awaits."
- Pastor Pacer Hepperly, Rio Revolution Church, Maryville, Tennessee
"What a blessing to be encouraged by Ebo. His heart is full of joy and enthusiasm about knowing and serving Jesus Christ. He is rooted and grounded in the Word of God and communicates it so clearly, lovingly and in a challenging way. We look forward to having him come back and minister to the entire body, as well as, the youth in our schools and prisons."
- Pastor Bob Grenier, Calvary Chapel Visalia, California

"Ebo Elder is not only a world class boxer, but he is a world-class speaker and teacher. He has riveting life stories and testimony of how God has led him throughout his life and boxing career. He is a tremendous blessing to any church or ministry that has him come to share. I give him my highest recommendation."
Senior Pastor Marty Burroughs,
"Ebo Elder is a man you can trust to deliver a strong message of inspiration and hope. His story is one of love, conflict, addiction, fame, loss, desperation and redemption. The heart of this ex-boxer is to fight for the souls of those heading down the same path of destruction that almost took his life. I am confident that the Lord will use him mightily to bring them to the cross."
"Ebo Elder has entered a new ring. Not for money, but for souls. His world-class skills as a fighter captivate crowds young and old, but his ability to lead them to the cross has captivated me. His witness is fierce, his ability to communicate excellently, and his call is evident. I highly recommend Ebo Tribe Ministries for every generation."
- Tim Bach, Icon City founder, Bend, Oregon
"Ebo Elder knows the challenges we face every day. His message is practical, relevant and critically important!"
- Rev. Allan Mathura, South Metro Ministries, Sharpsburg, Georiga
"Ebo Elder packs a powerful punch while speaking that carries an even greater impact than those he used in the boxing ring! I highly recommend him. He carries a strong message that this generation desperately needs!"
- Pastor Jay Stewart, The Refuge, Concord, North Carolina
What people are saying...
"Hey Ebo. You were at my church Sunday and I wanted to say that God is doing a great work through you! You ministered to my heart so much. I just wanted to thank you for letting the Lord use you as a vessel to minister to everyone. There are so many things wrong in my life that I just wanted to throw in the towel and give up. You were right though. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! God bless you and thank you!"
"I remember the day that you came to my church like it was yesterday. It was Wednesday, May 5, 2010. I was a junior in high school and all I cared about was sports and who my friends were. I was raised in a Christian home. Not once did I doubt that there was a God, but I'd be lying through my teeth if I said that I was walking with the Lord and had a relationship with Him, because I didn't. I was a "cookie-cutter" Christian so to speak. So my dad texted me that day, asking me if I would come to church that night. It took all that was in me to say yes. You would be sharing that night and had my attention the whole time. Towards the end, you asked if there was anyone who wanted to come forward and give their life to Christ. My heart was pounding and I couldn't breathe. But why? I knew who God is. I was a Christian. I didn't need to raise my hand or go forward. I felt like I was about to start crying when you started telling a story about one of your daughters and I started to panic because I didn't think you would give the invitation again. 'Ask again and I promise I'll raise my hand. Please ask again,' I said to myself. I was shaking. I was crying. My heart was pounding as the Lord spoke to my heart. So, you asked one more time....'If there is anyone else who,' and my hand shot up. I couldn't hold it down any longer. I walked forward and you prayed with me and a couple other people. By the grace of God, I've been a different person ever since. I actually just finished up my first year of Bible college! Thank you Ebo for you and your ministry.”
"Hi Ebo! I just wanted to thank you for your inspirational words today. God has used you in such a powerful way. You will never know what today meant to my family and friends. I, my husband and our friends have had a hard time the last few months. My friends struggle with alcohol addiction and my husband's mom was just diagnosed with cancer. There is so much going on. All of this has really taken a toll on our relationship. We have been going through many battles this year. To make a long story short, I brought all of my boys to church today knowing that you would be there. They could really relate to you. My husband was the first one to stand and accept your invitation. I followed to support him and all of our friends came up too! Then, to my amazement, the whole church stood up! Praise God! Today was a breakthrough for my family and friends. God bless you and your family. Thank you so much!"
"Ebo, I attended the CCCV Men's Conference this past weekend and truly appreciated you sharing with us. I was so encouraged by the scriptures you shared and what God laid on your heart for us men. Thank you and God bless!"
