Equipping People with Disabilities to Pursue their God-Given Potential

Welcome to the Elim community. Through this ministry, you equip people with disabilities to grow, learn, and contribute to the world around them. Together, we make our communities better by helping people with disabilities to thrive and pursue possibilities.

Amazing Grace and Brett

Planned Giving

God directs the events of our lives to draw us closer to Him (Acts 17:26-27). He also uses specific times and events in your life to impact your gift planning, which can result in great benefits for both you and your favorite ministry organizations. To help you in your understanding of Planned Gifts, we partner with the Barnabas Foundation, and we are happy to work with you too. Please contact us today to see how Planned Giving can help you accomplish the ministry to which God has called you, and bless people with disabilities at the same time.
