“To see a movement of church planting by bringing churches together and intentionally investing in high-potential Emerging Leaders through a strategic residency program, mobilizing them to pray for the city, evangelize the lost, disciple the evangelized and gather the disciples to form new churches and multi-site locations.” -- ELI Mission
ELI desires to plant dozens of churches all over the city. They are currently poised to plant five new churches over the next three years. Each of these churches will be led by Emerging Leaders who are coming out of ProEcclesia's ELI program.
Life-on-Life Missional Discipleship, XPRESS Your Faith, and the Life Issues booklets are core ingredients in Emerging Leaders training.
"[These tools are] incredibly useful in the Eastern European context, not only because [it is a deeply] relational culture, but also because [we have had] a complete lack of tools and knowledge as it relates to personal evangelism," said Nate Berry, Coordinator of ELI. With Perimeter's permission and help, ELI students are translating and contextualizing the Life Issues booklets so that it can be confidently used in evangelism in Poland.
