About Us

At Elim, we know that each individual has been created in their Creator’s image and has a God-given purpose. Our mission is to equip individuals with disabilities to achieve their highest God-given potential so they may live their lives glorifying Him!

Each day, over 900 individuals with disabilities turn to Elim for educational, vocational, and therapeutic programming. Over 400 staff members serve these children and adults on one of Elim’s two campuses or within one of the 17 Discovery Centers located within partnering Christian schools nationwide.

Elim Christian Services exists to equip individuals with special needs to achieve their highest God-given potential.
By God’s grace, Elim’s tradition of providing excellent services to children and adults with special needs will equip the ministry to be a resource center of best practices that expands our expertise and fosters hope to those served on this campus and beyond.
Core Values
•    We are Christ-centered
•    We all have value and purpose
•    We are a learning and sharing community


The foundation of the mission of Elim Christian Services is based on the conviction that the Bible is the infallible Word of God.  The Bible provides a Christian world and life view that gives purpose, definition, and context to Elim’s ministry to children and adults with disabilities. Empowered by this vision, Elim Christian Services recognizes its obligation to provide those with disabilities a Christian education and training in vocational and life skills that will equip them to achieve their highest God-given potential.
Elim is committed to and rooted in the Bible as the infallible Word of God, and stands within the tradition of the Reformation. Elim’s heritage as a ministry is rooted specifically in the Reformed faith as expressed in the teachings of John Calvin, Abraham Kuyper, and in several Christian denominations from the Reformed tradition. In 1952, Elim Christian School was named a benevolent cause of the Christian Reformed Church in North America, and continues to maintain a close relationship with that denomination.
