Frequently Asked Questions...
When and where did Ellel Ministries begin?
The work of Ellel Ministries officially began in the North West of England on October 31st, 1986. You can read more about the history of the work here.
In a nutshell, what do you do?
Basically, Ellel Ministries exists to help people move on with the Lord to a deeper place of healing and relationship with Him, so that they can know Him in a deeper way, and begin to fulfill the plan that God has for them. This is achieved in two ways. Firstly, by offering prayer ministry to those in need and secondly by conducting training events so that people can gain understanding and be equipped to help others in their own local areas.
What is prayer ministry?
At most Ellel events we offer time for response when delegates can choose to come and receive prayer ministry. This involves one or more of the prayer ministry team partnering with the delegate in seeking God for healing and freedom related to specific issues and problems in their life. There will be some time of talking together and some time of praying together.
What do you mean when you say you are involved in healing?
Nobody would deny that discipleship is a fundamental element of the Christian life. We believe that discipleship and healing go hand in hand and that part of the process of receiving God's healing is often dealing with discipleship issues in our lives.
A simple definition of healing would be the restoration of God's order in a person's life. It is clear that there are many people, even within the Church, who have areas of their lives which are out of order and that these issues hold them back from living the abundant life that Jesus won for them on the cross. We believe that God is the same today as He has always been and that He desires to bring healing and restoration into the lives of those in need.
Are you a church and, if so, what denomination are you?
Ellel Ministries is not a church and we encourage all of our team members to be involved in local churches as they are able. We are a non-denominational organization and we exist to be a help and resource to the local church.
How is Ellel Ministries supported?
Ellel Ministries is a non-profit organisation. We give away prayer ministry for free but charge for teaching and training. This has been the policy since the foundation of the work.
