January's month of prayer to focus on Elim's future


At the start of 2018, the Elim church family across the nations will join together in prayer and focus their prayers on Elim’s Vision 20/20: a three-year initiative to mobilise the whole Elim movement to a fresh wave of mission and ministry.

2018 is a key year for our movement as we move forward in response to this call at the start of this journey that encourages every Elim church to join us in setting fresh faith-filled goals.

Our shared goals are to see people come to faith in Christ, to baptise new believers, to enable people to be filled with the Holy Spirit, to pioneer new churches and faith communities and to start a host of new ministries which will meet the real felt needs of those we are called to serve.


Vision 20/20 prayer resources

As we imagine Elim's future together making disciples, planting and growing churches, developing leaders and reaching nations, we have the privilege of partnering with God in prayer and mission. So let's make the most of Elim's month of prayer in January and as part of the Elim family, join together in prayer for our Movement and one another.

LIFT UP has produced a number of prayer resources to assist individuals and churches. These include the following four prayer guides (and a soon to be released series of videos) that focus on the four dimensions of Vision 20/20.
