Become an Ambassador
You don’t have to travel to Africa to have a significant impact in advancing God’s Kingdom there! There are many ways you can empower lives in Africa from right where you are.


Become an intercessor and a prayer warrior. Pray for the people you connected with, the programs you learned about, and the ministry. Share with your small group and invite others to pray with you.


Connect with us on social media. We post regular pictures and updates from the field, and often invite ambassadors like you to contribute.


Tell people about your experience. Share with your small group and church, and help others learn about how they can get involved.


Invite someone from Empowering Lives to come to your church and share about the ministry. We are happy to visit you and help spread the word!


Become a sponsor and provide a family, a home, an education, and a loving, Christ-centered environment for a child in need.


Join the mission to bring hope to brewers and their families by supporting the life-changing trainings at ELI.


Fundraise for the cause. We have a few different fundraising programs you can use, or you can get creative and make your own.




Team Trips
We welcome all types of teams (churches, universities, families, etc.) to serve for two to three weeks at any point during the year. There are also internships available as well as long term professional volunteer positions. For more information on going to Africa with ELI, click here.
