Darlene & Ove Edskerud


Darlene and Ove have been in full-time ministry for over 35 years, specializing in developing leaders, teaching, discipling the nations, and helping people all over the world step into their God-given identity and purpose. 

Darlene and Ove spent nearly 20 years serving with YWAM, including nearly 10 years pioneering and leading a YWAM ministry in Romania after the fall of communism in the ‘90s.


For the last 12 years, Darlene and Ove have been part of Bethel Church in Redding, CA, completing three years at the Bethel School of Ministry. Darlene served on staff with Bethel for four years before feeling the Lord calling her to “get out of the boat” and launch a new ministry in 2020 called Arise Global, coming from Isaiah 60:1 - 3, calling the nations to “Arise, shine! For your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you…”

The vision of Arise Global is to equip the global body of Christ to arise and shine for the glory of the Lord! Our mandate is to strengthen Believers, raise up Kingdom leaders, and see missionaries thriving on the mission field all around the world!

We are blessed to have a team of eight full-time staff serving with us as we serve the nations. Together with our team, Arise Global is active in several areas of ministry. We lead online personal revival schools in Romania and Asia with a vision to see people awakened to their identity as sons and daughters of God and discipled and equipped to live an empowered, transformed life in Christ. Through weekly online classes, we lead people into experiencing personal revival and then teach them how to give it to those around them. 

We are also equipping the global body of Christ through online classes, prophetic prayer and encouragement sessions, and training for leaders in East Asia, Kyrgyzstan, West Asia, Russia, Romania, and more. We strengthen and support missionaries from around the world every week through online prayer sessions, leading renewal retreats, and training missionaries to become fully funded so they can be fully effective in life and ministry through our 5-day FullyFunded personal support raising workshops. 

So many lives are being powerfully impacted by the power and love of Jesus every week through the ministry of Arise Global! Thank you for partnering with us to bring the love and freedom of Jesus to the nations!
