The Complete Elijah Challenge Training 

June 21 – 24 in Houston, Texas

I. Doing the miraculous works Jesus did in this age
II. Maximizing my eternal reward in the next age

(Registration will also be available at the door)

In the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-19) Jesus commands us to “make disciples of all nations, …teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Among other things, Jesus commanded his disciples to “heal the sick who are there and tell them, the kingdom of God has come near to you” (Luke 10:9). Accordingly, you will learn how to heal the sick as Jesus did and as he commanded his disciples when he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God to the lost.

You will learn how to minister healing at a distance as Jesus did (Luke 7). We will apply this during the Training by ministering healing to the infirm over our mobile telephones.

People with infirmities are invited to join us to be healed in Jesus’ name. Infirm people will be healed by you during these demonstrations. In particular we invite people with any kind of heart disease to join us to be healed.

You will learn how to teach The Elijah Challenge Training to others. You will learn how to equip others to heal the sick and cast out demons as Jesus taught His disciples.

We will cover an effective approach to preaching the Kingdom of God to gospel-resistant peoples like Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists.

II. Maximizing my eternal reward in the next age

In 1 Timothy 4 Paul taught Timothy, “Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” We will lay the foundation for a holy personal life in which the works of our flesh are put to death. Scripture will be closely followed in the teaching. 

The following topics will be covered:

  • The basis on which eternal rewards are given out to believers at the judgment seat of Christ after he returns
  • Overcoming the works of our flesh and living a holy life in obedience to the Lord’s commands, including the context of marriage
  • Taking care of our physical bodies as part of “finishing the race”
  • Scriptural examinations of what are called “the anointing” and “spiritual warfare against principalities”, and false prophets today
  • The teaching of the Nicolaitans (Revelation 2:6) which Jesus hates in the Church today
  • One important purpose for prayer and worship gatherings which has been neglected by the Church
  • Paul’s thorn & the theology of helplessness


There are many Scriptures and much material in the 18-hour Training, and those who attended only a single Training event in the past absorbed only a fraction of what was taught. With a second exposure to the Training, material which they may have missed the first time will be noticed and absorbed.

Some servants of God who have attended the Training more than once now have very powerful ministries healing the sick, preaching the gospel, and training others to heal the sick. Those who have come on three separate occasions are now especially fruitful. Click here for some testimonies.

Healing Outreach: On Sunday afternoon we plan to send the training participants out to the community where you will apply what you have just learned under “actual battlefield conditions” —you will go door-to-door in the community to heal the infirm to demonstrate to the lost that Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father. Their hearts will be open to hearing the gospel as they witness the miracles.

The Elijah Challenge equips every believer according to John 14:12 to heal the sick as Jesus commanded His disciples to demonstrate to the world that He is the only way to the Father. It has been accepted by both evangelical and charismatic churches and has brought reconciliation and unity. It is instrumental in equipping the Church to fulfill the Great Commission. The age of the nameless and faceless believer is at hand. We invite you to come to be equipped to heal the sick in Jesus’ name to reach the most gospel-resistant people groups.

Luke 10:9 “Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God is near you.'”

John 14:12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.”
