My season at Ellerslie really impacted my walk with Christ. I learned to stand firmly on the foundation of who Jesus is, and to not live the Christian life passively. During my stay I was encouraged to walk in the boldness of Christ, to pursue Him with all my heart and to encourage others to the same in a humble way. I would highly recommend Ellerslie to anyone who longs to grow closer to Jesus Christ.

"I would highly recommend this Bible training for anyone who wants to go deeper, learn more of the love, victory, dependency, and obsession with Jesus! The staff are committed, godly teachers and the campus is wonderful. If you are looking for a set apart time to immerse yourself in Jesus — this is it!! Even for those of us that are a little older! The Word is what is taught here. ... Truth is proclaimed. Specifically, I became more confident in what it means to live 'In Christ.'"

"I'm so thankful for the work going on at Ellerslie. The environment is wonderfully focused on the Gospel and places the Word of God, Jesus Christ, in His rightful place of authority. With the Bible serving as the foundation, everything else is geared toward fostering a deeper intimacy with Jesus through prayer, study, teaching, and practical engagements with the local community. And a handful of exciting activities and surprises as well!"
Roy P. | Australia
"I found the discipleship training, preaching, and atmosphere to be foundational to my future ministry endeavors ... I would definitely recommend Ellerslie to anyone who is serious about their relationship with Jesus Christ and wants to live a victorious Christian life."

"Ellerslie is a place to come if you are serious about pursuing Jesus Christ and desire to know Him more. Jesus can draw you closer to Himself anywhere, but Ellerslie has been a really helpful tool for me and a place where He has done that. The staff are humble and unpretentious, truly living what they teach."
Katherine P. | Arizona, USA
"This has been one of the most challenging things I have ever done, but by far the most rewarding. It is not easy to truly die to self, but how God builds us back up in His ways is simply amazing. Ellerslie has given me the foundation of faith and truth I came in looking for and so much more. They provide space to truly dig into Christ and learn to lean on Him through all situations."
David B. | Virginia, USA
"My family spent four months at Ellerslie and absolutely loved our time in the Ellerslie community. We were all challenged to grow deeper in the Lord and to live lives totally sold out to Him. ... We would highly recommend anyone who is hungry for more of the Lord to attend a semester at Ellerslie."

How do I sum up the impact this place has on my life? The lessons that I've learned here, both through the Basic and then also the Advanced course have completely changed the trajectory of my life. It's not just the sessions or the homework, it's the way that the message of the gospel is presented with such simplicity and power. It's in a way that I've never experienced it before, and it's completely transformed the way that I read His word and my view on life. An overarching lesson that became engrained into me is the worthiness of God. Worthy of my devotion, worthy of my surrender, and worthy of every facet of my life!

My season at Ellerslie has really opened my eyes to what ministry is all about. It’s not about my own ability, strength, or agenda. It’s all about Jesus. If Christ is not at the center, then ministry--even though it’s--good would destroy me. My relationship with Jesus Christ has to be my highest priority, and everything else according to His will would fall into its rightful place.

Jesus has indeed been faithful to reveal Himself to me during the season He gave to me at Ellerslie. Through the sessions, staff, fellow students, and time set apart with Him to meditate on all He is, I am experiencing what I know to be the beginning of a different type of walk with Christ. Prior to coming to Ellerslie, God had been walking me through an intense stripping-down process to remove lies about Him and myself that I had accepted as truth for my entire Christian journey. God is using the time at Ellerslie to continue this intense period of my sanctification process in Christ.

Raised in the northern part of Europe, it was a big step from to make my move across the Atlantic Ocean almost 6 years ago. However, that step has drastically changed my life. When I first stepped my feet on the Ellerslie campus, I thought I had the Christian life figured out, but boy, I was wrong. Hearing the truth about Jesus time and time again changed me from the inside out and little by little, sin was removed and the light of the Gospel was making way into my dry soul.
Chantel O. | IN, USA
During my season at Ellerslie, I have seen the majesty of Christ. I have beheld Him and have not stopped gazing upon Him. I have seen how utterly depraved I am in light of His glory. And this reality has changed me completely. It has grown a deep hunger and thirst in my soul for more of Christ. It has led me to seek first the kingdom of God. I have caught the vision for bold, immovable, unstoppable Christianity. A Christianity that actually works. One that has the potential of changing the world for Jesus Christ.
