Sonlife Ministries was founded in 1989 by John Bond as a result of his growing itinerant ministry coming out of his local church ministry. Over the years his 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 was in Leadership, Local Church Ministry, Church Planting, Evangelism, Teaching and Equipping leaders.

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’.
