Where We’ve Come From
Our rich history as a movement has shaped our core values as a church. Elim Gospel Church was established in 1988 by Pastor Mike Cavanaugh as a community church with a vision to reach Livingston, Monroe and Ontario counties with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The birth of Elim Gospel Church is genetically related to the birth and vision of Elim Bible Institute & College and Elim Fellowship (a support organization for over 800 pastors and missionaries). In 2008, Pastor Joshua Finley became the Lead Pastor after serving as the Generations Pastor.
Our relationship with Elim Fellowship and Elim Bible Institute & College (EBI&C) gives us a unique opportunity to influence both present and future Christian leaders. Part of our calling is to be an example and model that Elim-related churches everywhere can look to and EBI&C students can learn from.
