Pastors Howard and Sue
The Elim Family Fellowship is situated in Benalmádena on the Málaga coast in Andalucía. The Elim Church in Benalmádena was pioneered and brought into Elim by Howard, Sue, and family. They received the Local Church Call whilst they were co-workers in a Spanish Church here on the Costa. They are both Elim UK ordained ministers and lead the work in Benalmádena and serve on the National Leadership Team as President & National Secretary of the Elim movement in Spain with churches in Andalucía and Cataluña with The National Vision of making disciples of all nationalities and planting churches in every province of Spain. The Local Church Call – “The Lord called us to reach a people group within Spain, He said to go to the English-speaking people not excluding the Spanish because He would move mightily through Spain, they would miss Him because they don’t speak Spanish, and He would move through their homelands, and they would miss Him because they are not there, so would we go to them for Him”
With their daughter Lucy, who is an Elim España ordained Minister and the Elim España administrator and their Spanish son-in-law Bruno, who is a church elder, they work in both languages. Building disciples of Jesus Christ and teaching them to reach their full potential is a priority, Matthew 28:17-20 Benalmádena has a very international population, and the church reflects the flavour of the town and enjoys having people of many nationalities who speak either English or Spanish.
The congregation averages around 15 different nationalities, and the meetings are translated into either Spanish or English with the praise & worship being bilingual.  It is a place ‘Where everyone is someone and Jesus is Lord’. Mid-week they have Life Groups in different locations, prayer meetings, ministry worship evenings…etc and give support and help to some of the homeless in the area. The church is also proactive at serving other ministers and churches in Spain and has a desire to see Spain won for Christ, locally and nationally as their focus is Building the Kingdom of God and not just a local church. They have with Lucy & Bruno the honour of teaching & training the pastors of a local Spanish Speaking Church which is rapidly growing and collaborate in evangelism and running joint church worship outreaches. A short-term mission trip could entail.
