About Us

Why the name Elim?

Ross and Jo-anne Brown

Our desire is to live life fully and passionately in union with God and to walk with others who seek a deeper connection with God. We are both ordained Salvation Army Officers, who have pastored churches in Australia and Germany, as well as working in Aged Care and with those who are homeless.
As Pastors, we both have a passion to reach out  to those seeking God, and to encourage and equip others who desire to experience deeper intimacy with God and to live more freely and abundantly.
Jo-anne is a qualified Spiritual Director and Supervisor, and has a Masters in Counselling.

After leaving Marah, the Israelites traveled on to the oasis of Elim, where they found twelve springs and seventy palm trees. They camped there beside the water.
Exodus 15:27

Elim: a place where we can come aside, rest and find refreshment for the journey.
