About Us

A global apostolic movement that’s called to have a local presence.

At Aglow International Australia, we are a global apostolic movement of people called to have a local presence in over 170 nations.


As a vast network of intercessors, across all cultures and denominations, we’re a ministry that remains committed to being intentionally present within our communities for one reason. So that through intercession, discipleship, and strategic partnerships, we bring the living presence of Jesus to the world around us.  


It’s been a call in Australia for nearly 50 years that continues today, by releasing lives into the fullness of their identity and purpose, so they’re empowered to impact their spheres of influence for Him.


At Aglow, it’s all because of what we recognise; that by having a collective presence within our communities and marketplace globally, it represents more than numbers, but unity. Intercessors, who are intentional about standing in agreement against a rising secular culture to shift the atmosphere and pioneer change.


It’s why Aglow is resolute to see God’s purpose established on earth. So that together, we reach lives waiting to know Jesus, by bringing the power of His living presence into our communities, nation, and world.

FIND AN AGLOW NEAR ME

Intercessory prayer is not just what we do, it represents the culture of who Aglow is at its core as a movement of people led by the Spirit. We, who are a company of warriors and champions, committed to cultivating a worldwide presence that creates an atmosphere of change. It’s why Aglow Australia is intentional about co-partnering with God in today’s fast-changing world by calling forth that which is not, as though it were. It’s the power of proclamation to reclaim and restore, so that those who are weary in their search for hope, encounter the living presence of Jesus.

PRAYER IS AT THE CORE OF AGLOW IN AUSTRALIA

When the governance and management roles were separated in 2018, she was then invited to join the new Board and elected as Chair.

HELEN REARDON

BOARD MEMBER

In 1992 Helen gave her life to Jesus, where she became engaged in church and introduced to Aglow. The ministry provided her heart’s desire to be with people from the greater body-of-Christ, where to this day, Helen doesn’t know of any other Ministry that is so bonded together in Kingdom love and unity. Over the decades Helen was blessed to serve in various roles in Aglow Branches, including as Leader of Frenchs Forest and Lindfield. During these two decades, Helen also attended Bible College and progressed to obtain her Bachelor of Theology. During an 18 month period living in Perth, Helen served in the Aglow National Office, where she became WA’s first Mentor. Upon returning to Sydney, God gave Helen a dream which was instrumental; in giving ‘birth’ a new way of doing Aglow in Kirribilli and Castle Hill. In 2020 Helen was invited to be one of the NSW Mentors, and the following year, became part of the AIA Board. No matter what season Helen has walked through, her Aglow family has always been there. Helen looks forward to this ‘new day’ as we walk forward into His plans and purposes for Aglow International Australia. Helen lives on the Central Coast in NSW with her husband Garry. They have two sons, two daughters-in-love and five grandchildren.

ELIZABETH WEST

BOARD MEMBER

Elizabeth West has long been associated with missions, having joined Youth With A Mission (YWAM) overseas in 1980, where she completed a Discipleship Training School. This became a catalytic move of which the Lord deposited into her life, not only a deep love for humanity, but a Kingdom worldview. Elizabeth later returned to YWAM in 2009 between careers, to staff a school, of which she then led an outreach team to Rwanda. With a long career in commercial advertising, she transitioned to Christian marketing agencies, a client of which was Gloria Jeans Coffees. This subsequently saw Elizabeth join Gloria Jeans as their National Marketing Director. Today, she occupies the position of Chief Brand Strategist for an American company based in Dallas Texas. Within this role, she serves both Sydney and the U.S. operations in brand development and marketing campaigns for a variety of Christian nonprofit organisations, causes, churches, and media. Her passion is to help clients build their relevance through greater differentiation, where they not only understand their point of difference, but whose voice is empowered to cut through in an increasingly saturated nonprofit world, so God is elevated, heard, and seen.
