Elijah’s Cave Ministry goal is to provide a safe place, secluded and private, to which Christian leaders and their spouses can retreat from their frantic schedules and become closer to God so that He can refresh, refocus, restore, renew, invigorate and equip them for the work to which God has called them.
Why Elijah’s Cave Ministry?
In 1 Kings 18 & 19 Elijah witnessed God unleash His power from heaven and ignite the altar of worship. Then Elijah defeated and killed 450 false prophets of Baal. Immediately following this astonishing ministry experience, this mighty man of God ran for his life when Queen Jezebel threatened him. He ran into the desert depressed and ready to give up on ministry. God, however, provided three things for him, He let him sleep, provided food for his journey and had an encounter with Him in a cave. God had Elijah’s attention and spoke directly to him with gentle whisper in a cave. Elijah’s strength and intimacy was renewed.
As leaders we need to take time to rest and renew our focus on the Lord our God. Jesus gives us an invitation that we should not ignore.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”. Matthew 11:28
Elijah’s Cave Ministry provides that rest for pastors and leaders who need to be renewed, restored, and refreshed. Coming apart for a time of refreshing! It is time to hear His gentle whisper!
