The mission of Elam is to strengthen and expand the church in the Iran region and beyond.
Elam was founded in 1990 by senior Iranian church leaders with a vision to serve the growing church in the Iran region. From the beginning, Elam’s passion was to train and equip Iranian Christians to reach and disciple their country men. In 1990 six emerging leaders arrived in England from Iran to begin their full time ministry training. They lived in a small, two-bedroom flat and used the kitchen as a classroom. Since then, Elam has seen many years of God’s faithfulness. By God’s grace, the ministry is growing and is being used to strengthen and expand the church in the Iran region in a significant way.
Elam works in the Iranian region to train leaders for fruitful and effective ministry, equip the church with Bibles and resources for evangelism and discipleship, and spreadthe Gospel through trained evangelists, church planters and Christian media.
