The Order of Jacob’s Well was set up to provide resources for healing as an ecumenical teaching and healing order. It was started in the UK in 1998 by the present Prior of the Order, the Rev Mike Endicott after discovering a way to pray in response to Christ’s command to preach the kingdom and to heal.
The Order of Jacob’s Well (Aus) started in Australia in 2015 after a visit from Mike Endicott in late 2014. The aim of the Order in Australia is to start a series of local ‘wells’ in which a group of Christians from various denominations together learn how to pray for kingdom healing, and then serve the surrounding churches by providing healing services.
The Prior in Australia is the Rev Professor Dean Drayton, a former National President of the Uniting Church in Australia. The Order of Jacob’s Well (Aus) is constituted as a registered not-for-profit body, run by a board of trustees. Its plans are to grow the number of wells in Australia in order to serve the Christian Church and recover the ministry of healing given by Christ to the Church. To this end Elders are appointed from particular areas to oversee and grow their local well. The Elders meet together nationally once every two years.
OJW(Aus) works together with OJW (UK). In 2016 three elders from the UK are visiting Australia in June/July in Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane, to encourage new elders and to provide a weekend of public teaching and healing ministry. This year Mike Endicott will be returning to Australia – go to our Events page for more detail.
