Higher Education for a Higher Purpose.

In addition to spiritual and character development, Elim pursues academic excellence. A challenging and flexible curriculum is taught by passionate faculty and enhanced by a range of ministry and learning opportunities. Elim will prepare you to make a difference for Christ.

Academic Programs

Higher Education for a Higher Purpose. That is the heart behind all we do at Elim.  Our academic programs are designed to meet each student where they are at and then stretch and grow them to fulfill God’s call on their lives. From one-year foundation building programs to an Associates or an Applied Ministry Certificate, we have the right program for you!

Distance Education

Attend college at home (or wherever you are) through Elim’s high-quality educational training through fully accredited online courses in theology, Christian ministry, college preparation and more.


The faculty and staff at Elim are wholeheartedly committed to help you become such agents and will passionately guide you in reaching your potential and fulfilling the destiny God has for you.

Student Ministries

While classroom learning is important, it only makes up a portion of the training students need to succeed once they leave Elim. That’s why we place every student in real ministry settings each semester, coupling experiential learning with academics.

NYSUM Intership

Each year, students journey to New York City for a three-week intensive urban ministry internship. Our goal is that every student will finish the internship with practical experience as well as an increased passion for God’s people living.
