About the Founders

John and Paula Sandford are co-founders of Elijah House, Inc., an international ministry established in 1974 in response to the Lord’s calling in Malachi 4:5,6 and Matthew 17:11

They have traveled extensively teaching the biblical principles of repentance and forgiveness, highlighting the transforming power of Jesus’ death and resurrection, meant to free us from all sin. They are considered pioneers in the prophetic and healing movements of our day. Their vision has been to reveal that which keeps believers bound in repetitive sin; by, as John says, “evangelizing the unbelieving areas of the believer’s heart.”

John and Paula have sown a deeper understanding of the Word into the Body of Christ, especially regarding the four basic spiritual laws, illuminating the biblical truth that these laws are just as certain as the law of gravity and how they affect our lives. Their work in the Kingdom has brought reconciliation and restoration of relationships to countless thousands, from individuals and families to denominations and people groups-most ultimately, for reconciliation to The Father.

John graduated from theological seminary with an M. Div. in Religion and personality. He pastored churches in Illinois, Kansas, and Idaho for 21 years before founding Elijah House. Paula was active in the churches in music and Christian education and also taught English and Spanish in the public high school for several years. She joined her husband in the team ministry of Elijah House from its beginning and was ordained in 1995.

John and Paula experienced the infilling of the Holy Spirit in 1958, which has enriched their ministry ever since. They have been married since 1951, have 6 children, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Paula went to be with the Lord in May of 2012. John is retired, but continues to be an active voice in Elijah House.
