Every Nation
Leadership Institute of Hawaii

Honolulu, HI


In conjunction with Every Nation Ministries and Grace Bible Church Pearlside, the Every Nation Leadership Institute Hawaii (ENLI) is designed to help equip, empower, and send out Emerging Leaders to change the world by advancing God’s Kingdom through biblical training, practical ministry training, and leadership development.


In 2010 ENLI Hawaii, formerly called School of Ministry Hawaii, was launched. Students that have attended have since become missionaries in Mongolia, New Zealand, Virginia, California and Hawaii; planted a church in Las Vegas, Nevada; led and participated in short term missions around the world; and have committed to Campus Ministry at various Universities in North America in just a few short years.
