Ralph and Michelle Ellaya are the Senior Elders and founders of Hill of Blessing. They are theology graduates and Ralph comes from an IT background of corporate lecturing and skills development. He is also the General Secretary of Accurate Building Concepts (ABC) Ministries, which is a ministry to leaders globally. Ralph and Michelle are accountable to the presbytery of ABC Ministries and to its pioneers, Dr Sagie and Rochelle Govender. Ralph and Michelle travel extensively to build and serve the Body of Christ globally.
Hill of Blessing was birthed in July of 2017 after Ralph and Michelle were commissioned by Dr Sagie and Rochelle Govender to pioneer an apostolic community in the suburb of Verulam north of Durban. Through the generosity Vasie Dalais and her family, a property of 25000sqm was donated to the ministry. Vasie was the senior elder of Life Community church and through spiritual guidance merged with Ralph and Michelle who had formally pioneered God’s Mission House in 2003. The merging of the two households, Gods Mission House and Life Community Church was founded on the following prophetic word:
I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing.
The property is situated on a hill overlooking the community of Verulam and through God’s grace, has become a blessing to the community and to churches locally and internationally.
