rent or purchase a building where the new congregation could meet, and the administration team would handle any remaining details.
Roberts Liardon tells us that the following year, the campaigns continued, although not as many as the year before. Jeffreys visited Croydon, Reading, Eastbourne, Bath, Exeter, and Bradford, adding thousands of converts to the body of Christ. In 1928, there were seventy Elim churches throughout the British Isles. By 1930, the number had risen to 100, and by 1933, the churches totaled 153.
In 1933, Jeffreys preached in towns such as Aberdeen, where 400 converts were added. Immediately, a new church was founded there.
Again, in his apostolic ministry, Jeffreys continually established new congregations to extend the kingdom of God on the earth. “His success can surely be the result of serving God with the ministry gifts he had received, namely those of apostle and evangelist.”
A few years later, in 1936, the Elim churches recognized Jeffreys’ apostolic ministry and his twenty-five years of dedicated service to the Elim movement:
As an Apostle, you have pioneered the Full Gospel message and established churches in the largest cities and towns of the British Isles. As an Evangelist, your ministry has been signally owned and blessed of God. Through your faithful proclamation of the old-fashioned gospel, you have led countless thousands to Christ.
