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.

 


 

Testimonies

"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!

"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."
  -- homeschool conference attendee

Give Jesus Glory by Telling His Stories

Glory to Jesus

This year I have sought to encourage my readers with “Jesus stories,” testimonies of God’s presence and power at work in the lives of those who believe that He is with them to glorify His name. As the end of 2017 approaches, I want to share testimonies of God’s grace to individuals through His Word and Elijah Ministries. Many of you have supported this ministry in prayer as well as financially, and I want to encourage you and thank you. I also invite others to join the ministry in giving praise and glory to God for His grace to and through us. 

Sharing God's Love

Heart of the Father

 As soon as I lifted the 40-pound bag with my left arm and slung it into the trunk, I knew I had made a mistake. I heard sounds from my shoulder and felt a pain shoot from my shoulder to my neck. I should have used two hands. I’ve done this before when lifting luggage, and I should have known better. I thought I had pulled my neck out of line, so I immediately called my chiropractor to see if I could stop in for an adjustment before we boarded the plane for 24 hours of traveling to Australia. Thankfully, they could work me in as the last appointment of the day.

Out of Darkness

Out of Darkness

In the summer of ’69 I served on summer staff at a conference center in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Missouri. It was a dream job for me. Besides being a general handyman and lifeguard, I was also responsible for summer staff recreation and driving the ski boat. I loved the water, the sun, and the people. As the staff recreation director, I was responsible for planning a weekly event for fun and entertainment. By the third week of the summer, my friends and I had spent some of our free time spelunking in a cave on the property.

 


 

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.

The young people to whom Norm ministered with Global Challenge Expeditions in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa express their thanks to the supporters of Elijah Ministries who provided for him to come and minister to them in February and November of 2016. Norm and the board of directors for Elijah Ministries give a great big THANK YOU to those who made this ministry possible. We have another opportunity to do it again in 2017. If you would like to help send Norm to minister again in South Africa you can give a tax-exempt donation here. Thank you so much!

Are there situations and relationships that puzzle you or paralyze you? How would you like to have a foundational understanding of God and His purposes that enables you to answer some of the most common questions and challenges facing most men? Norm helps you see how to apply wisdom from above (James 3:17) to issues and questions to which most men need answers.
