Our History

Elim Bible Institute was founded in 1924 by Ivan Q. Spencer and his wife Minnie Spencer in Hornell, New York. Spencer, a young minister, had a vision to train ministers to work in revival and renewal movements. The Elim Fellowship began a few years later in 1933 as the Elim Ministerial Fellowship, an informal fellowship of ministers who had graduated from Elim Bible Institute. In 1947, this loose network was incorporated as Elim Missionary Assemblies. In 1972 the name Elim Fellowship was officially adopted. Elim, describing itself as a “worldwide revival fellowship”, serves, supports, and networks pastors, missionaries, churches, and other ministers and ministries. The Elim Fellowship of Evangelical Churches and Ministers (Canada) was incorporated in 1982.
