Norm Wakefield served Coast Community Church, in Fountain Valley, CA for 10 years before he was sent out by the church to begin The Spirit of Elijah Ministries International. He has a shepherd’s heart and a vision to be an instrument in God’s hands to turn the hearts of men to Him and to their wives and children. However, his messages are just as impactful in the lives of women, young adults, teens, and children. Norm’s messages build up the body of Christ by giving practical, biblical teaching in how to apply the gospel to the most important relationships and the circumstances of life. You’ll find Norm’s messages to be powerfully life-changing because all are based soundly on the gospel with a reliance on the Holy Spirit to give understanding and application to his listeners.
On the personal side, Norm and Alma have been married for 49 years, have four children, and seventeen grandchildren. They also have experience with children with special needs since their daughter, Amanda, was born with Down Syndrome.
Norm started the Spirit of Elijah Ministries International in 1997 and is the Executive Director. He has served the body of Christ faithfully and brings experience, inspiration, spiritual depth, and practical, simple, profound insight into the Scriptures as he speaks in men’s retreats, father/son, father/daughter events, youth conferences, marriage retreats, family life conferences, and spiritual life events.
