Campus Pastors

Mike & Liz Griffiths

The Elim City congregation started over 30 years ago and was founded in 1985. The campus is in the heart of Auckland City, with views of the sky tower. The lead pastor is Mike Griffiths, alongside his wife, Liz. They both have a gift for teaching and counselling/life coaching. Mike and Liz have been married for 27 years and are parents to 4 children, Elley, Sam, Lexi and Kate.

This multicultural inner-city congregation also offers a strong midweek programme for mothers and preschoolers, including music programmes, a playgroup, and a conversational English class.
