Sonlife Ministries was founded in 1989 by John Bond as a result of the growing itinerant ministry coming out of his local church ministry. Over the years John’s ministry has grown into being sought after as an Apostolic Leader, Evangelist, Coach and Leadership Consultant. Sonlife provides governance and accountability for John’s passion which has now developed into a focus on the mentoring, coaching and training of Church Planting Movement leaders and the raising of funds to enable this training to be multiplied to the nations.

In 2011, Neolife and Sonlife International officially came under the governance of Sonlife Ministries.  Neolife’s growing ministry still operates under Sonlife Ministry however, Sonlife International has grown, developed and been released to now become an independent international development organisation called ‘Initiate Australia’.
