An Overview of the 7 Weeks of Optional At-Home Study

After the initial 5 weeks on-campus are over, you have the option to continue your training with 7 weeks of at-home study. While this portion of the training is optional, it is highly encouraged. We want to stand alongside you as you learn to apply the strength you gained in the first 5 weeks into your day-to-day life back home. If you participate in the next 7 weeks of at-home study, you will receive ongoing video instruction from Eric Ludy and others via our Ellerslie membership portal (compatible on computers and smartphones). During this time, you’ll continue to build Christ-centered community and accountability through group mentoring conference calls with one of our team members. Our goal is to provide you with the tools you need to walk victoriously, as well as provide accountability and encouragement as you continue to cultivate your personal walk with the Lord.

"My family spent 4 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."

"I found the discipleship training, preaching, and atmosphere to be foundational to my further 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."
