What is EXPLORE?

What is EXPLORE?EXPLORE is a series of weekend courses designed to train and equip God’s people through a journey of transformation. Ellel Ministries aims to bring Word and Spirit together in the application of teaching and ministry.

Together we will find that there is hope and help for the issues we struggle with in everyday life – issues of anxiety, stress, physical pain, emotional distress, problems in relationships, addictive behaviour and depression to name just a few. We will also discover what it really means to live with God in a closer relationship, and for God as part of His Kingdom family.

Those who journey through EXPLORE will also be equipped with keys in healing and discipleship to help meet the needs of others.

Each of the events in the series will include time for worship, biblical teaching, group discussion, activities, opportunities for prayer.

'If from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.' Deuteronomy 4:29

Who is EXPLORE for?

EXPLORE is for anyone who…

…desires a deeper, closer and more meaningful relationship with God

…knows there are issues in their life which are holding them back

…wants to understand God’s plan for their own life so they can walk in it

…wants to grow in their understanding of healing so that they can help other

It is for people aged 18 to 118! It is for new Christians or those who have been Christians for decades. It does not require any qualifications... all you need is an open heart to the Lord.



Why EXPLORE?In 1994 Ellel Ministries began a Modular School of teaching and ministry in healing and discipleship. This school subsequently ran at most of our centres around the world reaching thousands of people with life-transforming teaching. It has truly been one of the most effective and fruitful schools that Ellel has ever run.

However, we never want to just keep running the same programme simply because it has been effective in the past but always want to be in tune with what the Lord is asking us to do. As we considered the Modular School we felt the Lord asking us to undertake a refreshing of the material – with the same objectives and similar format – that would reflect the new things the Lord had shown us over the years.

After two years of prayer and planning, EXPLORE was developed. We are excited by this new programme and the potential it has to enable people to draw closer to Jesus. We know that as we draw close to Him, it is in Him that we find freedom from the many things that weigh us down. We are not erasing anything that has been in the original Modular School but rather adapting it to reflect where the Lord has been leading us. Our primary objective at Ellel Ministries will always be to declare the saving love of the Lord Jesus and how true healing and freedom is found in Him alone.

Our prayer is that you would discover this too as you join with us on a journey to explore all that God is, has done and will continue to do for each one of us. It is as we truly understand this that we can then move forward in serving Him with our whole heart and see His Kingdom come.

So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10


What does an EXPLORE course look like?

EXPLORE runs over two years.  The EXPLORE B course will be offered In 2021.

EXPLORE is held by Ellel Victoria at St Mark’s Anglican Church, 277 Point Nepean Road, Dromana. It is held over a series of weekends. You can find out the full details for each location on the registration page.

Standard Weekend Format (Friday - Saturday)


Each EXPLORE course will start at 7.30pm on Friday evening with an online presentation of the first session.


Then on Saturday there will be a mix of worship and challenging and inspiring teaching sessions alongside times for personal reflection and group discussion time. There will also be an 'encounter' session where there will be an opportunity to respond personally to the teaching and to receive prayer ministry from our Ministry Team. The last session of the day will finish around 5.30pm.

…So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10

The wonderful thing about EXPLORE is that God doesn’t just work during the events themselves but continues His work during the time in-between. The EXPLORE notes will also include a journal with activities, questions, worksheets and scriptures all designed to help you continue to grow and receive from the Lord in your own time.

Each of the events in the series will include time for worship, fellowship, biblical teaching, personal reflection, group discussion and an encounter time where prayer ministry will be available.
