You will experience student life at Elim by sitting in on a class, attending a chapel service, joining the student body for meals in the cafeteria, participating in fun activities on campus, staying with students, meeting key leaders and faculty, and more.

"From the moment I arrived, I felt God talking to me and showing me visions"
I felt like this was home. I didn’t feel judged like I do in school. It was a great place to be for the weekend.
I recently attended Discovery Days at Elim and was blown away by the fellowship and peace that I felt there. I kept commenting to my friends at how peaceful it was/is. I could see the love that the teachers had for the students and as I chatted with the students throughout the day, they had only positive things to say. I would love to be a part of a place that strongly desires to see spiritual leaders
When I was at Discovery Days I saw exactly why God is calling me to Elim. I have never met a group of people as caring, and welcoming, as the students I met during my stay. The presence of the Holy Spirit was so prevalent everywhere I went. The chapel was amazing, and I started to imagine what it would be like to experience that almost every day. I felt like this was a place where I truly fit.
I grew so much in just one weekend. I can't imagine the amount of growth I could experience in a year at Elim, but I am so eager to find out. Elim is so much more than just a school, it's a family, it's a place where young people can go to nurture their faith, and see where God wants to take them in this big world. That is something I would love to be a part of. By the end of my stay at Discovery Days I was no longer frightened, but ecstatic about God's plan for my life.
