ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ELLERSLIE CAMPUS

DO YOU STILL OFFER ELLERSLIE DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING ON THE CAMPUS?

Yes — but in a different format! Eric and Leslie Ludy and their passionate team continues to disciple students from around the world at the Ellerslie campus all year long! But the Ellerslie Discipleship Training Program now has a new name: Bravehearted Personal Discipleship. The Bravehearted Personal Discipleship Programs use the same life-changing core curriculum taught in the Ellerslie Discipleship Program, but are offered in a format that is more practical for those who have full-time jobs or other responsibilities that make a long-term stay away from home difficult. We currently offer two discipleship training formats: The Basic Program (1-week of training at the Ellerslie campus with continued online training and mentoring) and The Deluxe Program (5-weeks of training at the Ellerslie campus with continued online training and mentoring.)

We also offer an Advanced Training Program at the Ellerslie campus, which is a 5-Week Summer Practicum for all Ellerslie and Bravehearted alumni. Visit our Practicum page at braveheartedchristian.com to learn more!

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ELLERSLIE CAMPUS:

WHERE DOES THE NAME ELLERSLIE COME FROM?

No, it’s not a combination of Eric and Leslie Ludy’s names! “Ellerslie” is actually the name of the birthplace and elder estate of the Scottish liberator, Sir William Wallace. In the book, The Scottish Chiefs (circa 1810, by Jane Porter), the Ellerslie estate in Scotland is described as a “refuge of the friendless, and the comfort of the unhappy” and “those whom the lawless plunderer had driven from their houses or stripped of their covering, found shelter, clothing, and food at the house of Sir William Wallace.” Wallace’s Ellerslie estate was burned to the ground by the English in the late 1200’s, and this terrible loss led to his rise as the hero of Scottish freedom. The name “Ellerslie” was inspired by that legacy. The Ellerslie Campus in Windsor, Colorado was built to be such a place of beginnings — a birthplace of heroic souls — men and women built strong to be spent for the weak ones of this earth.

WHY WINDSOR, COLORADO?

The reason the Ellerslie Campus ended up in Windsor, Colorado is a long story. However, the very short version hearkens back to a father and his son who both lived in Windsor back in the mid-90’s. The son attended a Bible school up in Canada and during the graduation ceremony, the father (who at the time was not a Christian), was greatly impacted by the Gospel message this Bible college delivered during its commencement address. This father subsequently gave his life to Jesus Christ, and as a gift unto His newfound Father in Heaven, he donated a tract of land in northern Colorado for the purpose of building a Bible college right there in his hometown. It’s amazing to witness how God has used that father’s gift to bless hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people the world over. Learn more about the history behind the Ellerslie Campus.

WHO OWNS THE ELLERSLIE CAMPUS AND ARE THERE OTHER THINGS THAT TAKE PLACE THERE THROUGHOUT THE CALENDAR YEAR?

Currently, the Ellerslie Campus is owned by Ellerslie Mission Society, a non-profit 501c3 organization. The Ellerslie Campus is an active place, utilized for various ministry activities such as Bravehearted Personal Discipleship Programs throughout the year, the Church at Ellerslie’s weekly services, the home-base for His Little Feet International Children’s Choir, and the offices of the Bravehearted Media Group.

CAN I UTILIZE THE ELLERSLIE CAMPUS FOR MY OWN EVENT?
