Advance

ONE MOVEMENT, ONE MISSION
MANY CHURCHES GROWING TOGETHER

Elim, as one movement with many churches, is as committed as ever to move together in mission.

In this decade, we are calling every Elim leader and church to advance into a new season of fresh mission, extending their influence, impact and outreach, reaching and serving the local community and beyond.

Our focus remains on our four strategic objectives – growing and planting healthy churches, developing existing and additional leaders, making discipleship a priority and reaching nations.

Acting as a springboard campaign, Advance seeks to challenge Elim's leaders to consider what’s next in advancing mission through their local church, as well as how they can help other churches and leaders advance in their journey into accelerated and radical mission.

Advance covers the decade of the '20s and not just the year 2020, so this mission focus will gain a life of its own over the coming years.

Initially, we will be gathering and shaping a wide range of resources and opportunities to help Elim leaders and churches share and celebrate stories. We will give examples of what is already working and is fruitful, as well as developing and strengthening existing projects.

At its heart, Advance will take a joined-up approach – taking on board national, regional and local perspectives. Vision and practice will be connected for the entire Elim Movement to grow and advance together with the good news of Jesus at the centre.

Take time to explore Elim's four missional priorities, with life-changing and inspiring stories from individuals and church congregations.
