Naturally, people unify with each other because they share similarities. Because people live for themselves, it is reasonable for them to connect with people who are like them. The more similar one is to another person, the more likely they are to get along with each other. What makes Christians so different is that they have the supernatural ability to love one another despite their differences—and offenses. It is the love of Christ that controls them instead of self.
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.

Imagine being beside yourself with joy when you come to stand before Jesus Christ, knowing that you have pleased Him by spending your life getting to know Him better and loving others with Him. That can be your experience! Add to that an even greater joy that comes from knowing that you’ve been instrumental in discipling others, resulting in their ultimate happiness and joy in that day.
Everyone who is a true child of God knows God and loves others. This beautiful growth of our relationship with Him happens because when God is saving us, the Father draws us to Jesus through the beauty of His love, the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, and the power of the Holy Spirit.

"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!
