ELI: Elder Leadership Institute The inaugural Elder Leadership Institute will take place July 7-12, 2013
Growing the Church by Equipping Its Leaders
ELI develops and supports spiritual leadership for the church by training elders (referred to as ruling elders) and pastors (teaching elders). The acronym ELI is synonymous with the name of an Old Testament priest who failed in his duties, thus serving as a cautionary tale that one's calling or religious position does not automatically confer spiritual leadership. Yet the name ELI means "my God," with EL & I demonstrating the intimacy that we are called to have with God.
The first ELI cohort will begin in spring 2013 and will meet together in summer 2013 at the Whitworth Institute of Ministry on the campus of Whitworth University in Spokane, Wash. Space will be limited to 120 participants. Click here to register!
