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.

Jesus Set Us Free to Love

Free to Love

    In the summer of 2018, a youth soccer team from Thailand was trapped in a cave complex in the northern part of the country. Monsoon rains had inundated the area where they were exploring deep within the labyrinth, and the rising floodwaters cut off their exit. For eighteen days these twelve young men and their coach were entombed without food and with only a trickle of drinkable water dripping off a rock. But just when they probably thought that all was lost and they were sure to die, a Thai Navy SEAL team broke through the water in their underground prison to rescue them.

Pursue Love

But now faith, hope, love, abide these three;
but the greatest of these is love.
Pursue love.

1 Corinthians 13:13-14:1a

Love without Judgement

Last month I hope you were encouraged by my blog article about loving with discernment. Christians must be loving and discerning in a culture that can’t tell darkness from light, that insists that love requires tolerance of what the Bible clearly states is sinful, and that pressures the church to embrace—no, even more—to support and celebrate those sinful lifestyles. However, if we aren’t careful, in our efforts to be discerning, we can easily fall into the judgment ditch.

"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!
