Introducing The Spirit of Elijah Ministries

The Spirit of Elijah Ministries mission is to build the Kingdom of God and the local church by equipping men and their families to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. This mission is accomplished through speaking at men's, family, and couples' retreats, church conferences, homeschool conventions, as well as through audio and video resources and printed materials.

Listen as Norm Wakefield explains how the purpose of this ministry is grounded in scripture - particularly Malachi 4:6 and Romans 1:16.

A New Commandment

A New Commandment
As we began a new Live to Love discipleship group, I asked, “What do you live for?” Surprisingly, everyone in the group of eight remarked that they had never been asked that question. It seems like this is an important question for us to answer. That’s why I thought it helpful to consider seven biblical reasons to rethink what we are living for.

God is Love

God is Love
I began a series of articles last month for the purpose of inviting my readers to reconsider the purpose for which they live. You have one life to live, and it makes sense that you would want to be a good steward of the life you’ve been given. If you haven’t read last month’s Live to Love blog, you can do so here. In short, it’s obvious as you meet people, they live for many different things. What do you live for?

What Do You Live For?

    What do you live for? I’ve known people who live to work, to eat, to play a sport, for pleasure, to travel, and for many other things. What would God say you live for? Usually we are passionate about the things we live for. We think and talk about them and make room in our schedules to do them. We might even say we love them. I aim to engage you at a deep level and help you rethink your life and relationships with God and others.


 

Testimonies

"Thanks again for your ministry to all of us guys at the Illinois camp, my sons and I were truly blessed by the weekend. I am excited to see God leading your ministry to focus on loving like/with Jesus. I believe this message has the potential to impact the Church greatly. "
  -- Father/Son camp attendee

 

"Three years ago at the Teach Them Diligently Conference in Omaha, NE my son and I met you. At that time his dad had just left us and was living a very immoral lifestyle. You gave us two resources: Teenagers 101 and Equipping Men. We have just finished those two and have been reaping rewards from the wisdom gleaned! We can not thank you enough!
  -- single mom

 

"I enjoyed listening to your talks at the CHAP convention. For me, you were the highlight and blessing of the entire weekend. I intended to get to other speakers but ended up skipping others to catch all of yours."
  -- conference attendee

 

"I just would like to say how Mr. Wakefield has changed my life. (We know it's the Lord who does the changing :-) I thoroughly enjoyed the message that you gave us at the FEAST conference on How to Build a Foundation of Faith. Thanks so much for your ministry."

Bible Studies


The Preeminence of Jesus

Listen to Norm's teaching from Colossians 1:15-20. This track is part of the Colossians Bible study series.

The new Equipping Men series is a vast improvement on what has already been a very helpful tool to many in its original form. The series now consists of 20 lessons; five new messages have been added and the lesson lengths have been shortened to make them more conducive for small group use in homes, Sunday Schools, or men's meetings and retreats.
