Elim's National, Regional and Core Ministry Leaders
The Elim Pentecostal Church is governed by the Conference, a body comprised of every Elim Minister and a member from each Elim fellowship. The Conference meets once a year to discuss practical matters and for fellowship.
Elim is led by the General Superintendent and the National Leadership Team. These leaders are elected from among members of the Conference. In addition to the National Leadership Team, our core ministries are lead by department leaders.
