History

National leadership discussions surrounding Elim began in 2017, sensing the Lord’s affirmation that a new ministry would benefit the people of Northeast Florida.

So we began local leadership meetings in 2018 after Paul and Lauren moved to the area, formulating the vision and plans with Todd, Ben, Taylor, and Jessica.

Mission

We are a diverse community of nationalities … worshipping, serving, and growing together in unity. We offer a variety of worship and teaching expressions that honor both the Jewish and Christian histories of the faith – ancient and modern.

Our teaching focuses on entering into the New Covenant through Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah, along with living out a lifestyle that is faithful to the New Covenant.

Our style of faith is both reverent and approachable, with a desire to see the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) impact our lives for personal growth and outward service.


We seek to implement the mutual blessing of Jew and Gentile as “One New Man” (Acts 10-15, Ephesians 2).

We hope to expand the kingdom of God in Northeast Florida – assisting those seeking out the faith, establishing Life Groups, and raising up new leaders.
