What Are My Options?
Below you will find a list of questions that prospective faculty members typically ask about ELI and the answers that go along with them.
“Raising support,” as it is most commonly known, is really about developing a team of ministry partners (think, Philippians 1:6; we call it “Ministry Partner Development”). A “Ministry Partner” is someone who commits to participate with you in the work the Lord is calling you to through prayer, encouragement, financial support, and possibly even co-teaching.
I have seen the hope that ELI brings to pastors and teachers who are struggling to make a difference in their countries. ELI ignites a vision in these leaders, and through ongoing training empowers and equips them to build and sustain a transformational culture.
If the vision is to transform an entire culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ, ELI's approach of shaping the thinking of that culture's leaders is the most direct and holistic path to bringing that vision to reality.
ELI works with church leaders from various denominations. I was impressed to find the pastors engaged with the teaching, asking questions and even challenging some of our positions.
