Welcome to Elim Training

Elim Training exists to assist you in becoming anointed and practically equipped to serve in whatever environment you have been called to.

Elim Training's passion is to pass on knowledge (knowing) that encourages exploration, understanding, insight and fresh perspectives on important issues of our faith and the practice of ministry today.

However, training must go beyond the gathering of information to the formation (being) of the image of Jesus in us. This paradigm of training leads to vocational opportunities (doing) so that all become equipped for effective lives of service.

In Elim we don't see training as a one off event but rather a lifetime of ongoing development. Sharpening the skills, gifts and wisdom God has given us to serve Him and others most effectively.
