The Elevation Church

Welcome to
The Elevation Church 

Making greatness common. 

We are not just a ministry, but a global movement dedicated to empowering individuals with the transformative power of biblical wisdom and practical principles. With a forward-thinking approach, we aim to equip our diverse community with the tools they need to achieve greatness in every aspect of their lives. 

Our Story

Most of humanity can relate with the desire for greatness. It drives most of our life decisions and commitments and defines us, however there is a higher dimension to the matter. We, as children of God, are called to a life of greatness activated by and intertwined impact- serving God and humanity. 

Founded on the 10th of October 2010, under the leadership of Global Lead Pastors Godman and Bola Akinlabi, The Elevation Church is a global, pragmatic, forward-thinking teaching ministry focused on empowering her audiences/ community with biblical, practical, and principle-based tools to achieve significance. We understand that there’s a supernatural dimension to every sphere as well as a place for man’s actions and investments on the earth to make for true greatness.

Today, as a global church with expressions in our home nation, Nigeria, and more springing up in the UK, Europe, North America, and across the world, that commitment to making greatness common is as firm as always despite the multiple social contexts involved.
