Engaging and equipping Elim leaders to thrive in united purpose

The Elim Leaders Summit provides a unique opportunity to encourage and inspire Elim leadership teams and individuals, bringing them together for greater effectiveness in our united purpose.

This 3-day event at Harrogate Convention Centre will help Elim leaders to engage as ONE Movement, equip them to become more confident in ONE Mission and encounter God in worship and ministry.

This Summit helps our full-time and volunteer leaders by going beyond inspirational teaching and providing practical, equipping resources that help to sharpen their own personal ministry.




Will you join us at the Elim Leaders Summit?

The Elim Leaders Summit draws together Elim ministers, church leaders and their spouses, along with our missionaries, chaplains, church planters, youth and children’s leaders, church volunteer and emerging leaders. Invite your whole team of church leaders to join you at this national event.

This summit is a unique annual opportunity to bring together the whole Elim family of ministers and leaders in corporate worship sessions and leadership forums.

In addition, our various leadership tracks provide relevant and practical teaching especially for young leaders (18-30s), children’s workers and those applying for Elim Ministry.

Gathering together, we recognise our different and diverse ministries, get to hear from God and together consider our future. This could change the trajectory of your life. Will you join us?
