About



Spirit Life Ministries is an equipping ministry founded by Pastor Jerry & Dr. Ruth Wickline in 1998. It began with the biblical mandate of Ephesians 4: 11-13.
"And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ."

As a ministry they believe its not what you can do for the ministry, but what the ministry can do to fully equip you to demonstrate the Kingdom of God here on earth.

Pastor Jerry & Dr. Ruth's  Apostolic/Prophetic Ministry has grown to include Spirit Life Church in Wichita and Eureka, Kansas, Schools of the Spirit, School of Prophetic Ministry, church plants, and oversight of churches and leaders in the Body of Christ. 

The Wicklines’ ministry involves teaching, training, developing, nurturing, and activating believers in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. They follow Jesus’ model of sending out the believers to do, and then learn. This builds confidence and rapidly moves believers into their appointed position in the Body of Christ. Spirit-filled saints, fully equipped and sent out, are able to tell the Good News, with signs and wonders following. (Mark 16:17)

Since 1988, the Wickline family has been on a faith journey in hearing the voice of the Lord and walking in obedience to Him. This journey has led them to many different streams in the Body of Christ. They have received training from Morning Star Ministries, Christian International, the Vineyard, and other known Christian ministries. Pastor Jerry and Dr. Ruth are ordained ministers with Rick Joyner and MorningStar Fellowship Church.
