Elim U

Here at Elim, we are convinced that every follower of Jesus wants to grow in their relationship with Christ and make an impact for Him in their world. Often many of us get stuck on "HOW" to accomplish this. Elim U classes and Bible studies are meant to give you the tools you need to grow in Christ and to feel equipped for your God given purpose on the planet. Below you will find all the classes and Bible studies being offered during Elim U's Fall 2017 semester.

  • Building a Family Legacy // Oct 4th- oct 25TH, 2017 // WEDNESDAYS 6:30-8PM

    If you're a parent, you know how busy and taxing life can get. Between getting the kids to their extra curricular activities and trying to keep your marriage afloat there doesn't seem to be much time to do much else. Yet, even in the midst of the business, God calls spouses and parents to create homes that honour and represent him well. On Wednesday nights through the month of October, Pastor Matt Jaggers will be helping those who attend this series to ask some hard questions that will lead to a deepened passion to invest in the relationships that truly matter. Through this series that is based on Dr. Dobson's bestselling books, we hope that the content and discussion from this class will help families of all ages and stages.

  • Sisterhood Bible Study // Sept 14th- Oct 19th, 2017 // THURSDAYS @ 10AM

    SACRED SECRETS  by Beth Moore


    The word secrets might evoke feelings of shame, guilt, or even fear. But not all secrets are bad. Study the theology of secrets with Beth Moore in this 6-session study. Some secrets need forgiveness, and some should be kept between you and God. Sacred Secrets is for busy women who do not have time for an in-depth study; however it does not lack richness or quality. Discussion potential abounds without any expectation of revealing private information. Join Beth to find out what happens when we let God teach us "wisdom in the secret heart" (Psalm 51:6, ESV).

  • Sisterhood Bible Study // Starts Sept 29th, 2017 // Fridays @ 7PM

    THE ARMOUR OF GOD by Priscilla Shirer


    All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you - unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, The Armor of God study is for you. The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer's inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing personalized strategy to secure victory. (7 sessions) The study will be led by Betty Mutwiri, Chantal Banda and Josephine Nsimire.

  • PARENTING SEMINAR //November 17 + 18 // FRIDAY + SATURDAY

    Discover how to parent your kids and teens effectively in a culture that is submersed in social media and broken relationships. You will be given vital parenting tools to engage your children in conversation and equip them to understand God's will for their lives.  You are invited to join us with our guest presenters Kim & Darlene Unrau.


    Kim and Darlene have been married over 30 years, which has required learning to communicate, resolve conflict, prefer one another and laugh until it hurts.  They have three incredible sons:  Matthew is pursuing kingdom business, Joel has a teaching degree and Jordan beat us all to heaven.  Their journey with Jordan is blogged at www.jordanshealing.blogspot.com.


    While Kim's degree is in theology, he has founded Inspired Life Training (www.inspiredlifetraining.com), turning his years of experience to become a counselor providing family, individual, couple and executive coaching and training.


    Darlene's  degree is in education, majoring in counselling.  She developed True To You (www.truetoyouokanagan.com), an abstinence-based program.  She has had incredible opportunities to provide presentations to students from grades 6 to college age in schools and other organizations.  Teaching and training parents to converse with their children regarding adolescent development is her passion.  They are the ones having 1000 little conversations instead of the one "big talk" about healthy relationships and healthy sexuality as God intended.
