We are Elim

Elim Leadership College was established in 1997 as Ministry Training College by Elim Christian Centre. We are under the Elim Property Trust (2021). We remain a vital part of the ministry and calling of Elim Christian Centre to build centres of hope that reach, serve and influence the world for Christ. We are a Pentecostal Movement with emphasis on the work of the Holy Spirit in the Church and in the life of every believer.

As part of Elim we share its culture and DNA:

We expect breakthrough, actively pursuing the power and presence of God in every situation
We welcome as family, extending grace to others as they journey toward Christ-like character
We believe every member is a minister, encouraging every believer to find their part to bring
We make the big ask, calling others on into life with Christ and into their calling as followers of Christ

We Are


We believe the best way to equip leaders is in the environment of a healthy local church. We actively seek partnerships with the local church in which our students serve. Therefore, this programme will only enrol students who have been selected for ministry by their local church leadership.


We seek to grow leaders of Christ-like character who have developed practical leadership and ministry skills. We are committed to walking with each student on their personal leadership journey of growth.


In all our programmes, online classroom learning goes hand-in-hand with real-world application. Each programme is set up to provide opportunities for students to step out beyond their comfort zones and bring what they have in a meaningful and tangible way.
