“Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t…missions begins and ends in worship.”
– John Piper, “Let the Nations Be Glad”

Unreached People Groups
We believe every man, woman, and child on this planet must have a chance to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This grouping refers to the longitudinal lines that include the least evangelized people in the world. Unreached people groups are those commonly referred to as the people found in the “10/40 Window.” There are currently an estimated 7,062 unreached people groups in our world today. Your support here will bring the gospel to people who have never heard it before.
Financial Goal: $27,000
We believe the Gospel of the Kingdom touches every aspect of life. Your supporting funds here will be targeted towards feeding the hungry, providing clean drinking water for the thirsty, care for the orphan, and medical supplies for the sick. These funds also directly support organizations that are rescuing children from both abortion and the sex slave trade.
Financial Goal: $5,400
We believe it is wise to “sow where the seed will grow.” The largest nation in the world is largely unreached and is continuing to experience exponential growth in its level of global influence. That is why we are strategically responding to a great and effective door of ministry open to us in the fruitful field of China. We are committed to a continued partnership with key apostolic and missionary leaders we have deep relationship with who are working in this area of the world.
Financial Goal: $13,000
We believe the plan of God is a multigenerational dream. Since 1924, Elim has been training leaders for end time revival ministry. Your support to future leaders will ensure that training continues to occur so that each generation will have trained leaders to build up and grow the church, as well as bring transformation to every sector of society.
Financial Goal: $26,000
We believe church planting to be one of the most effective means to completing the Great Commission.The beloved Elim apostle Costa Deir used to say, “If you want more milk, you need more cows. If you want more missionaries, you need more churches.” It takes many churches to serve the many needs across our nation and the world. It is with this understanding that our church family has a strong value in helping plant new churches—churches who will have deep within their DNA a burning passion to see the Great Commission become the Great Completion.
Financial Goal: $12,000
We believe in honoring those who have sacrificially given the prime of their lives for the sake of the Gospel. The vast majority of missionaries coming off their fields of service do not have organizations or funds that can help them in their retirement years. Your financial support here will help us honor missionaries in this delicate life season.
Financial Goal: $2,100
