Special events to encounter God
Elim students have the benefit of participating in several conferences and events sponsored by Elim-related ministries, most of which are held on-campus.
The Oasis annual conference is attended by hundreds of pastors, missionaries, and other leaders and is held on the Elim campus. While attending (and sometimes helping serve at) this 3-day event, students get to hear inspirational and very practical teaching, as well as rub shoulders with pastors and experienced ministry leaders.
BASICcon is held each semester for college students and young adults in nearby Rochester, NY. It is sponsored by BASIC College Ministries. Although EBI&C students are not required to attend, they may register at a greatly reduced rate and participate with hundreds of other young adults from campuses across the Northeast.
Some students get further involved in the planning and implementation or volunteer to work at the events.
Students participate at Saturate, which is sponsored by Elim Fellowship and held on the campus each fall. Some students also get involved in the planning and implementation of the event and learn what goes on behind the scenes of hosting a conference attended by hundreds of young people.
During a week each fall, classes are cancelled so students can attend special EBI&C meetings focused on missions, as well as the 3-day ETHNOS conference sponsored by Elim Fellowship. ETHNOS helps people interested in missions move from “I will go” to “I am going.”
