Spiritual Roles

As a part of our team you will participate in daily team prayer and worship meetings, have opportunities to grow in your Christian faith through regular attendance on teaching courses and receive prayer ministry for your own personal development.

Practical Roles

As Health and Safety Compliance Officer you will be responsible for liaising with Ellel Ministries International Head Office in all areas of Health and Safety and keeping the centre up to date in all relevant legal requirements.
