“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”?
“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 Blog—as it was renamed in 2011—would continue and be flourishing more than twelve 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  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 our apostolic advisor, and has been for over eleven 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.
