About Enliven Ministries

“Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord Almighty (Zech 4:6b).

“Enliven” is a synonym for “revive”. We want to be a life-giving, Spirit-empowered prophetic ministry.
Our mandate is to equip leaders in prophetic ministry and the move of the Spirit, towards a global awakening.

Why the name “Enliven Ministries”?

Helen recalls,
“The name, “Enliven” dates back to the publishing of my first book in 2007. At that time, I was seeking a business name to publish the book with. One night, I was looking over the local business names register. It seemed many businesses were already using the name, “Revival” (our first choice), so I turned to an online Thesaurus to look up synonyms. In what seemed to be a spontaneous moment, Malcolm and I chose “Enliven”.

So, Enliven Publishing—along with enlivenpublishing.com—was birthed.
In 2009, I added a blog to my Enliven Publishing website (formerly “Enliven Publishing Blog”), never dreaming that Enliven Blogas it was renamed in 2011would continue and be flourishing more than a decade later, as my primary expression of ministry.”

Our Core Values of Prophetic Ministry

We believe that health in the prophetic movement globally is vital to this vision of a revived church being fulfilled! For this reason, our core values [1] are infused into all our teaching and everything we say and do.

These core values could be described in the phrase:
“A Father-presenting, Jesus-pursuing, Spirit-sourced ministry: A Biblically grounded, leadership honoring, integrity seeking, Church-loving, Kingdom-extending ministry, based in intimacy with God.
