At our short introductory seminars, the teachings of Elijah House Ministries Australia (EHMA) give people an overview of the biblical basis of Christian prayer ministry and specifically the EHMA teachings. These short seminars are an information and promotional tool that lead to the presentation of a complete EHMA Keys to Transformation Course.

Introductory Seminar Program

An introductory seminar is usually presented on a Saturday morning or afternoon, a full Saturday, or perhaps even a Friday night and Saturday.  Sessions start with praise and worship and a number of teachings, depending on the time frame, are watched on DVD.  The schedule includes breaks for morning, afternoon tea and lunch as required. Time is allocated for discussion and questions, facilitated by an EHMA leader.  Each teaching is complete, and it is not necessary to attend all the teachings.


The teachings are on DVD and feature John and Paula Sandford as well as other prayer ministers and teachers from Elijah House.


Because large numbers of people usually attend seminars, it is not possible to provide prayer ministry to individuals, however corporate prayer is associated with the teachings.
