Very few pastors need convincing they have people in need of healing in their church! Yet this need can be overwhelming and can become a burden too big to carry.
Our heart is to draw alongside pastors and churches to help them impart the vital message of healing and discipleship so they can grow effectively as a united body. Church Visits provide the opportunity to bring an Ellel Ministries team into your local church or regional setting to do just this.
We will coordinate with the pastor / leader to tailor the event to what is right for the congregation. This will include relevant teaching on healing and discipleship and offer some time of personal ministry. Some churches prefer the focus to be on individual healing needs, others are looking to equip their prayer ministry teams or it could be a combination of both.
There is no set format for a Church Visit and each event is tailored to the particular needs of your local area. A typical Church Visit would usually consist of a one-day conference but could be longer and include evening meetings and/or involvement in the Sunday church services.
Initially, we would recommend holding an introductory event so that the foundation concepts of healing and discipleship can be shared and then built upon by the church or even with subsequent visits from Ellel. For some, there may be a specific topic that is relevant to the needs within the church that could be focussed on.
A typical Church Visit would also include a time of ministry so that people can respond to the teaching. This would normally be led from the front initially but could then be opened up for further ministry if a prayer ministry team is available.
There is no formal charge for a Church Visit, yet we do request that our costs are covered which includes traveling expenses, food and accommodation (if required) for the Ellel team. You are more than welcome to charge attendance fees to church visits to cover these costs.
We do request that a love-offering be taken for the work of Ellel Ministries and that a table be provided so that we can bring books and other resources to sell.
All bookings, administration and advertising for church visits is to be undertaken by the host church. If you require any logos, photographs or copy text for advertising and publicity, please contact the relevant Ellel Centre.
If you are a church leader and would like to host a church visit, or if you would like to find out more about how Ellel Ministries can resource your church, please contact your nearest Ellel Ministries centre.
Questions to consider when contacting us:
If you are looking to book a speaker for a conference, please click through the section below:
We are delighted to be asked to speak at churches, conference and other Christian events and have highly experienced teachers who would be a great addition to your line-up of speakers.
We only release our most experienced teachers to speak at external events. These are people with many years’ experience in teaching and prayer ministry and are leaders within the work. It makes sense to use the most local teachers to the event, but this is not always case. We can recommend teachers based on the event and topics wanting to be covered.
As a general rule, we would charge for a speaker for any external event where there is an attendance fee in place. This is in addition to travel, food and accommodation costs, which we would ask you to cover for any speaking event.
However, this varies between speakers and centres but please be assured we will be upfront and open about any costs from the outset.
As a non-profit organisation, we know all too well the cost of running events and do not wish our costs to be prohibitive so please do discuss this with your contact once this is established.
We would ask that you do not contact speakers directly, rather contact your nearest centre or Head Office to make requests.
If you have a specific teacher you would like to request, please do ask and we will do what we can to accommodate your request. However, it may not always be possible, but we will provide you with suitable alternative suggestions.
