Our Vision
Our Vision

Multiplying Healthy Local Churches

We believe thriving local churches are what every community needs and the most effective way of reaching our communities with Jesus is through the multiplication of healthy churches.

Our effectiveness is not measured by seating capacity, but SENDING capacity.

Multiplication means there’s room for everyone. When we grow together we expand our reach and ability to influence.

Our Mission
Our Mission

Creating environments that inspire intimacy with Christ, relationship with others and influence in our world.

Life works best when we are in relationship with God, in community with other believers, and in our worlds making a difference.

At Elevation we strive to create environments so you can thrive in this.

Our Values
Our Values

We are Authentic! Being real with ourselves, others and Christ because we value genuine relationship.

We are Adventurous! Bold and brave. We don’t play it safe, seeking adventure to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

We are Fun! Work hard, play hard. We don’t take ourselves too seriously.

We are Spirit Led! With Christ at the centre, we make room for the Holy Spirit to move in our everyday moments.
