About Enliven Ministries

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

Why the name “Enliven Ministries”?

Helen recalls,
“The name, “Enliven” dates back to publishing my first book in 2007. At the time, I was seeking a business name, in order to publish the book. 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 fourteen years 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.

Our history with David McCracken Ministries

From January 2017 onwards, David McCracken Ministries expanded from being a team of ministers to being a family of ministries. Enliven Ministries was birthed out of David McCracken Ministries. Although we are now an independent ministry, David McCracken is still our spiritual father, as well as one of our apostolic advisors, and has been for over twelve years!

Who is on the Enliven Ministries Team?

Helen Calder is the founder of Enliven Ministries, supported by her husband Malcolm, along with four other Directors.
Malcolm and Helen are ordained ministers, holding credentials with David McCracken Ministries.
We are also grateful to have team members who are providing assistance in practical and administrative areas and look forward to expanding the team in the future.
