Who teaches on NETS?
NETS is taught by a variety of teachers from all different countries, backgrounds and ministries. Every NETS is different because we have to work around the busy timetables of some of our guest speakers! The majority of teaching on NETS is brought by those who are involved with Ellel Ministries across the world but we are also delighted to be constantly enriching NETS by welcoming guest speakers such as:
Alistair Petrie (Partnership Ministries), George Otis Jr. (Sentinel Group), Jim Graham (Gold Hill Baptist Church), J Lee Grady (The Mordecai Project), George Verwer (Operation Mobilisation), Jan Ransom (Flame International), Ken Symington (Christian Restoration in Ireland), Michael Puffett (Jubilee Church), and many more.
Here are short bio's for some of our more regular teachers on NETS, and those that you might not have heard of:
Peter Horrobin. Peter is the Founder and International Director of Ellel Ministries. His cutting edge teaching and compassion for the hurting have been at the heart of Ellel’s ministry throughout its 25+ years of development. He is the author of numerous books, most notably 'Healing Through Deliverance' and 'Living the Life'. He has recently set up Ellel 365 - a lifechanging online training school. To find out more go to www.em365.org. Peter was the man whom God gave the vision for Pierrepont to be a 'teaching hospital'. As part of our NETS taster package you can listen to Peter speaking about this vision and how it eventually became the NETS Programme. You will also find teachings from Peter in our Weekly Sermons section.
Fiona Horrobin. Fiona has been a key part of pioneering the work of Ellel Ministries International. From over twenty years experience of ministering into broken lives, she is passionate to see healing as integral to discipleship and Christian growth. Her most recent book Intercession and Healing teaches about the importance of intercession if we are to experience breakthrough with God in the area of healing.
Alistair Petrie. For many years in both the United Kingdom and Canada, Alistair served as senior pastor in diverse city church settings. With that experience and his earlier years spent in professional broadcasting, he now serves as the Executive Director of Partnership Ministries. Partnership Ministries is positioned as a ministry for the 21st Century Church and combines prayer and research in order to prepare Communities, Cities, Nations, and the Marketplace for lasting revival, authentic transformation and the release of Kingdom culture.

The vision she was given by God can be read in more detail here. Students from all over the world come for 5 – 10 months and learn to teach and minister on NETS. Jill now travels to many different countries every year to teach Kingdom truths and to share her own personal testimony. Jill’s book, etitled Sex: God’s Truth, is an essential guide to the restoration of godly order in sexual relationships. Jill lives near Pierrepont with her husband Colin. The are many teachings from Jill available for free in our Weekly Sermons section.
Jilly Lyon-Taylor. Jilly lives not far from Pierrepont. Through serving in the local church for many years and leading discipleship groups, she began to see a tremendous need in the Body of Christ for healing, as she saw so many believers seemingly unable to move into their full inheritance as sons and daughters of God because of issues in their lives. As a result, Jilly decided to complete the NETS Programme in 2001. She is now one of the main teachers on NETS as well as teaching at other Ellel centres, and she is also part of the Leadership of Ellel Pierrepont. She balances her role at Ellel with those of being a wife, mother and grandmother. Teaching from Jilly can be found in our Weekly Sermons section.
Denise Cross. Denise has been married to David for 38 years and they have three grown up children. Denise leads the team at Glyndley Manor, the second oldest Ellel Centre in the UK. Denise originally trained as a mathematics teacher, but after a “Damascus Road” experience of the Lord Jesus in 1981, now delights to teach the Lord’s wonderfully logical truth. Her passion is to stir the hearts of believers to appropriate all the benefits of abundant life that their Heavenly Father freely offers to each of His children.
Ken Symington. Ken is a passionate speaker who always shares fantastic stories from his own life. He is often a favourite for NETS trainees. He has a desire that God's children would truly understand the heart of their Father towards them. Ken leads 'Christian Restoration for Ireland', a ministry that serves the body of Christ throughout the world by teaching and ministering into many (often difficult) subjects, as well as working with people with addictions and providing personal prayer ministry as well as prayer ministry training. Ken has taught God's people in countries such as the Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Russia, Hungary, USA, Australia and more. Teaching from Ken can be found in our Weekly Sermons section.
