Ralph and Terri Winter-Smith


Until the end of January 2015, Ralph and Terri were leaders of Christchurch Elim Church. Ralph had been senior pastor there since 1977.

Ralph and Terri have very broad experience of pastoral ministry having worked closely together over many years. They joined the NFCF team in July 2015.

In particular Terri served the Christchurch church in numerous roles including leading women’s ministry and sharing in Sunday School, youth work and parents and toddlers groups. She has undertaken various other roles in the church and has often been used by the Holy Spirit in the prophetic gifts.

Ralph has been involved in all aspects of local church ministry including teaching and preaching, training and mentoring aspiring leaders and ministers, lecturing on leadership and the person and work of the Holy Spirit, evangelism and healing. He has previously served Elim as Regional Missions director and Regional prayer co-ordinator and as an area pastor. For two short periods he also served Elim on central committees at the Elim movement’s Headquarters.

Ralph and Terri have two daughters who are both married and who with their husbands continue to serve the Elim Church in Christchurch. They are also blessed with two wonderful granddaughters.
