One Day Event
Pastors and leaders often share with us the significant challenges they have of meeting the emotional, physical and healing needs of their church members.
The truth is that our churches are often filled with very hurting and broken people and with those who continue to struggle in certain areas of their lives with seemingly no victory. Issues of rising divorce, addictions, depression, phobias, and many other problems are often rooted in deeper areas of healing needs and can affect any one of us. The reality is that pastors and leaders are often stretched to their limits with a heart to help their people, but overwhelmed with the scale of the need.
At Ellel Ministries, we aim to serve the wider church body by offering in-depth prayer ministry for those who are in need and also by running teaching events where Christians can be more equipped to overcome issues in their own lives as well as learning how to help others more effectively.
With over 30 years’ experience in praying for the hurting and wounded we know God does have keys to bring life-changing transformation and freedom. We would love the opportunity to share with Pastors and Leaders about who we are as a ministry, what we can offer, a little of our foundational teaching and to welcome you to our centre.
The day will begin at 10am (registration is from 9.30am) with worship, includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day and will formally end at 3.00pm. For those who would like to receive some personal prayer ministry from members of our team there will be an opportunity to do so from 3.00pm to 4.30pm.
This course is for UK-based pastors and leaders only.
This is a free course but booking is still essential
I do feel God has made significant breakthrough in my life. I also feel that I can go back with the ability to change my life and leadership style by pressing into Jesus and I have met Him in greater depth this week.
God showed me the root cause of the problems I’m having with the church I am pastoring.
