I believe the world desperately needs strong healthy vibrant local churches; they are the hope of this world. It is through the local church that God s people become Christ followers, are trained and mobilized to extend the purposes of God. It is through the church that the next generations of Christian leaders will be raised up who have a fire and passion to reach people and touch places with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in new and radical ways. It is this strong belief we have at Elim Christian Centre Auckland that resulted in the birth of Ministry Training College, so that our future leaders receive their training not in an institution but in the environment of a strong local church. Elim Ministry Training College is a vital part of the ministry and calling of Elim Christian Centre Auckland. Elim Christian Centre Auckland was established in 1985 and is now a multisite church and one of New Zealand s largest congregations with over three and a half thousand attending services each weekend. Its ministries include a Christian school with over one thousand students, pre-schools and Bible College, all spread over numerous properties. The largest congregation and central administration is at Elim East in Botany Road Howick. Elim Ministry Training College offices and lecture rooms are at Elim South in Mahia Road Manurewa. Other congregations are located in Cook Street Auckland City and Porowini Avenue Whangarei. Our invitation to other church leaders in our city is to join with us in a training college that has resulted in the equipping of hundreds of church leaders. Emerging leaders, we invite you to become part of Elim Ministry Training College. Get trained and equipped to make those dreams God has in mind for you a reality. We are committed to God s vision for your life and the success of your local church. 1

3 welcome WHO WE ARE Bill Kathagen Director Consider the incredible impact potential the church could have if more people were trained and equipped for leadership. The church needs godly, servant-oriented, spirit-filled, growing leaders. Can you imagine how God could use you? Elim Ministry Training College (EMTC) is here to help you on your journey to become all God has created you to be. Is God stirring your heart to have a closer relationship with Him? Is God speaking to you about growing your Christian life and becoming better equipped to serve Him? Do you sense a call to a particular ministry role and need training for it? Then Elim Ministry Training College may be the right place for you! We are a tertiary institution offering NZQA accredited courses and programmes in applied Christian ministry from a Pentecostal perspective. Established in 1997, Elim Ministry Training College s purpose is to develop people for effective Christian leadership and ministry. We seek to grow people of Christ-like character who will in turn be effective in their future ministry or vocation. In all our programmes classroom learning goes hand-in-hand with real-world application. Students will be given practical tools to help them develop personally and vocationally. Our distinctive campus in South Auckland houses well equipped lecture rooms and student facilities, as well as quality onsite accommodation. Campus activities encourage teamwork, practical ministry skill development, local community involvement, and personal growth. Those studying by distance participate in live on-line lectures, stimulating discussion forums and are fuelled along the journey with four block courses during the year. By undertaking an internship within their local church, these students are able to directly apply everything they are learning in a meaningful way. Mission Statement: To train, equip and release people for effective Christian leadership and ministry. 2 NOTE: This prospectus is intended for students who are New Zealand residents. International students should refer to the website. 3

This has undoubtedly been the most rewarding time of my entire life! It was the Lord who called me here. The Holy Spirit began to satisfy a deep desire in my heart for spiritual growth. Throughout the first year I gained understanding of the Bible, no longer as a series of stories but as the revealed character of God burning in my heart. With the Lord s help I delved deep into the depths of my character, starting a healing process that continues today. I was challenged, dared and empowered to grow - to see what God could do with my life. The second year, an intense internship in my home church, has brought realism to the dynamics of ministry and leadership. God is good. God is faithful. Trust Him, and answer the call. John Nankivell 6 7

My two years at EMTC were both pivotal and instrumental in my journey with God. He taught me so much about myself and enabled me to overcome things that held me back from pursuing my future. I highly recommend taking time out to focus on Jesus, it will never be wasted. Natasha Adams Events Co-ordinator at Elim Christian Centre East 10 11

8 Testimonials Hayley Barrett Pastor Sharon Ratnaraja Pastor Adrian Daniel Youth Pastor Mike Griffiths National Leader, Elim Churches of NZ I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today without my year at EMTC. Not only did it deepen my personal relationship with God, it was also the platform from which I entered ministry. It was at EMTC where I preached for the first time, lead worship for the first time and lead a church service for the first time. Today I am a pastor at Elim Christian Centre South where I am involved in the worship team, the running of Sunday services and regular preaching at Elim churches around the country. I am so thankful for my year at EMTC and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I cannot speak highly enough of EMTC!! My year at EMTC was one of the best years of my life. It was a year in which I was shaped and prepared for ministry. With Spirit filled and inspiring teaching, EMTC instilled great leadership values and skills, it developed my faith and prepared me for the ministry I am doing today. My husband and I are blessed to be the associate pastors of Elim Christian Centre South, a vibrant church of 600+ people. I am very thankful for my time at EMTC as it set me up and prepared me for what God has called me to do. I highly recommend EMTC for anyone who wants to prepare for christian leadership or ministry. Elim Ministry Training College is something that I would highly recommend to any person looking to go into ministry. The thing that sets EMTC apart from other Bible Colleges is the balance between theory and practical. The outstations and the missions trip for many is the highlight of the year and it allows you to practically work out what you are learning in the classroom. My year at EMTC helped me to grow and develop, preparing me for what God had ahead. Since completing my study at EMTC, I was called to Youth Pastor at our North location of Elim Christian Centre. It has been an amazing journey so far and the growth and life change we have seen in young peoples lives has been phenomenal. After a short, almost 3 years, since we launched our Oxygen programme, we now consistently see over 100 young people attend every week. I am a huge believer in training. It is what positions you for the future. To take time to develop in the character, gifts and abilities God has placed within you is an investment you will never regret. Here you have the opportunity to sit under men and women of God who are not just talking about ministry, they are doing it, and doing it effectively for God s Kingdom. A key part of our national vision in Elim NZ is to raise up highly trained pastors and leaders in order to build healthy churches. Church health is pre-requisite for church growth, and we are committed to preparing our people for the extraordinary challenge that leadership is. As the well-known pastor, leader and author Bill Hybels writes The local church is the hope of the world and its future rests primarily in the hands of its leaders. Elim Ministry Training College is in my opinion one of the most effective shapers of future leaders and ministers in our country. Many of our churches are led or staffed by graduates of EMTC. I am one of them. Adam Frost Youth Worker I look back on my time at EMTC as one of the most significant years in my life. I was exposed to excellent teaching where I was challenged, inspired and encouraged to pursue all that God had for me while growing closer to Him. I was equipped to enter full time ministry where I now run our Oxygen youth programme at our City campus and work alongside our East campus youth pastor to deliver an exciting programme to teenagers every Friday night. I love what I do and feel that I am able to operate more effectively in my gifts because of the foundation I was able to lay down through my time at EMTC. Natasha Murdoch Childrens Pastor EMTC for me was an incredible opportunity I will never forget. It was a fantastic foundation for my Christian faith. The thing I love most about EMTC is that it is both practical and bible based, with incredible opportunities to be hands on in ministry. Now I get to lead a children s ministry with over 450 attendees on a Sunday. Without EMTC I know I would never have the knowledge I do today. I recommend it to anyone who wishes to enlarge their bible knowledge, learn practical skills and grow in their Christian faith
