The Leadership

Get to know the Leaders of Community Fellowship Center Cologne


Cecil and his wife Linda are the founding pastors of Gemeinschaftszentrum Köln (Community fellowship center Cologne). Their passion is to reach every cultural group of people in Cologne and its surrounding areas with the Word and Love of God. They firmly believe that everyone who has been transformed by the Word of God is a light that shines in his environment and thus testifies the nature of God in a practical way. Therefore they have the vision to establish home groups (cell groups) in which everyone is being accepted and walking in the knowledge of the Love of God.

Pastor Cecil preaches and teaches the Word of God in a practical, applicable and humorous way that everyone is able to understand.

The Children’s Ministry is a matter that is truly dear to the heart of Pastor Linda. She is fully convinced that every child is precious, unique and wonderfully made by God.

Cecil and Linda are both graduates of the Rhema Bible Training Center in Bonn, Germany. They are ordained Pastors in the Rhema Ministerial Association International.

The Elijahs have three children and live in Cologne.
