The Elim Experience

Campus Life

8:00 am – 12:00 pm EST
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm EST




Experience God like never before

Elim is a place to learn about God and to experience Him. As you attend conferences and learn from world-renowned leaders, you will also serve others every semester. As an EBIC alumnus recalled, Elim is “an incubator that helps you grow in ways you never thought possible.”


Spiritual growth is foremost on the Elim agenda as well as its history.  In the quaint town of Lima, you will find a home away from home that’s full of opportunities to connect, lead, and explore.  Elim leaves one changed, in the Lord, forever!

Foundation's weekend

Our Foundation’s Weekend is the student’s first introduction to the wealth of deep spirituality offered here at Elim. Worship, sermons, workshops, and fun round out this insightful and eventful time of preparation.

Week of prayer

Elim’s Week of Prayer allows the participants to delve into a deeper understanding of the Word of God as well as its practical application. This is time well-spent in corporate prayer, personal reflection, and individual growth as speakers feed into the life of the student.

Local church

There are a number of local churches from which to choose for a personal congregation. Foremost is Elim Life Church, which is affiliated with Elim Bible Institute and College. There are ministries and activities for all ages which fulfill one’s need for worship with the Body of Christ and fellowship.

Student ministries

Preparation for ministry is most important at Elim. Finding God’s calling on your life and helping you begin to move in that venue is a primary focus for Elim.

Are you a church, ministry, or organization that is interested in having a student ministry team during the school year? We invite you to fill out this form and our Ministry Director will contact you soon.


There is a great availability of conferences for personal growth and edification. Offered on a periodic basis these conferences are spaced throughout the school year and will assist in the studies of Theology and Biblical Studies being pursued at Elim. A favorite of the student body is the annual Missions Conference held each October. This is a time to hear from missionaries in the field, highlight our international students, and lean into the Lord to hear his heart for missions. This is a life-changing weekend for many of our students.
