Rev. Grace Eledan is the President and Founder of Women Aflame International and Vice-President/Co-Founder of Grace Relief Initiative International. The gathering of Women for prayers and fellowship which she started in 1989 was culminated by a clarion call she received on Nov. 25, 2000 through which God gave her a marching order and said, “Mobilize women to evangelize.” The call gave birth to Women Aflame International (WAI). She also planted People of Faith Church in Brooklyn, New York. She is a prolific writer and an Evangelist by calling, who operates in the prophetic and healing gifts. She is a Co-Pastor with her husband at Leaders Church International in Atlanta, USA. Her journey into the ministry started on September 21, 1989 when she received a word through a vision from the Lord who said to her, “I will use you to preach.” God backed up the Word with the scripture-Isaiah 61:1-3 in another subsequent revelation. She was led in the same month of September 1989 to start a non-denominational fellowship known as “All Overcomers’ Christian Fellowship” through which God performed lots of miracles.

She is a Theologian and English tutor by training.
