About ELI


ELI’s vision is to mobilize thousands of leaders to start new churches out of the culture- churches molded from messy people rising up out of the culture to become the Body of Christ. Our efforts are focused on:

  • Inspiring leaders to start new churches out of the culture.
  • Discovering leaders with the ability and experience needed for church planting.
  • Equipping leaders for starting new churches formed out of the culture.
  • Multiplying new churches as part of the reproducing movement.

  • Leaders are the key to starting healthy, evangelistically effective churches.
  • New churches must be formed by gathering un-churched people “out of the culture.”
  • Church multiplication is core principle of Kingdom growth.
  • Collaboration allows us to do more than we can do separately.
  • Our efforts must be true to the Scripture under the direction of the Spirit.
