Elim Leaders Summit 2016 speakers announced

The Elim Leaders Summit 2016 will be held in Harrogate this May with a programme made up of celebrations, seminars and the business sessions. As the event draws near, the speakers at the celebrations and seminars have been announced.

The celebrations join everyone together for defining moments of intimate worship, teaching and personal encounters with God. In addition, there are a number of seminars where experienced practitioners will speak on key areas of leadership. These high impact sessions aim to engage and provoke, to inform and inspire. They will be sharing their own experience and helping to put tools in your hands as you work to shape church and engage with community.
