Equipping through the power of the Cross, the Spirit and the Word

What do we do

At Elijah House Ministries Australia, we train and equip people in ministering to the wounding in the heart.
Elijah House Ministries Australia serves the wider Christian community by offering teaching, training and prayer ministry to bring restoration to broken lives and relationships.


Elijah House Ministries Australia is a not-for-profit interdenominational Christian training organisation for Pastoral Care and Prayer Ministry.
After pastoring for over twenty years, God called John and Paula Sandford to a new ministry to write, teach and counsel. In 1974, they founded Elijah House which is now based in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho USA.
The Elijah House teaching principles stand firmly on the word of God and Elijah House has grown worldwide, successfully teaching, training and ministering to thousands each year, bringing restoration to broken lives and relationships. John and Paula Sandford are authors and co-authors of more than a dozen books on marriage, family, restoration and related subjects.
Introduced to Australia in 1991 by Myra Wilkinson and now established throughout the country, Elijah House Ministries Australia was officially opened at Flaxton on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland on 4 April 1992. Myra and her husband Clif, having been involved in healing ministry and having studied the foundational text “Transformation of the Inner Man”, first attended a seminar by John and Paula Sandford in the mid 1980s.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.

— 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 (NIV)

Since 1974


To bring reconciliation with God, within ourselves and with others; and to equip and empower God’s people to do likewise. 


For every heart to encounter and be established and transformed in God’s love. 

Elijah House Ministries Australia accepts fully the orthodoxy of the major creeds of the Christian faith; agreeing to all areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. 

We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, inerrant in all that it teaches and therefore authoritative as the one infallible rule for faith and life. 

Because we serve inter-denominationally, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that no doctrinal interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us. 

  • We believe we are called to be faithful to the mission of the Church, which is the saving and healing work of Christ in the world: to be instruments of writing, teaching and healing. These are expressions of the love and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. 
  • We believe that the Word of God, prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit change the effects of the past, bringing about sanctification and transformation. People are set free to walk as God intended, so that all areas of their lives can be cherished and valued. 
  • We believe that the work of Christ needs to be accomplished in and through the love of Christ.
