Shammah Ministries

Ron & Tonia Woolever

We are Ron and Tonia Woolever, a resource for relationship. Our work is to help people relate to God and to each other in satisfying, intimate and healthy ways.

We are Christian speakers, Bible teachers, counselors and mentors with over 30 years of experience in coming alongside churches, pastors and their leaders, married couples and individuals who want to better learn how to relate to Father, Son and Holy Spirit; faithfully love a spouse; or develop healthy community in your church.

As living witnesses to God’s power to heal broken relationships and wounded souls, we have a passion to teach believers about Covenant, the Biblical pattern first revealed in God’s heart for mankind to live in committed, righteous relationship. We have a passion for this work because we have seen firsthand how many are robbed of abundant life through lack of understanding God’s covenant heart and ways. We offer this and other topics (outlined below) in these formats:

  • Church or community seminars that are refreshingly practical and thoroughly Biblical.
  • Speakers for your men’s, women’s or community conference or event.
  • Bible Studies.
  • Retreats for men, women, couples and ministry leaders.
  • Great learning resources in books, CD and DVD.
  • Counseling and mentoring. We especially love to help pastors and their families or anyone in Christian ministry.

What We Teach

We primarily teach and mentor the Body of Christ in knowing Father, Son and Holy Spirit according to the promises of God in the New Covenant of Christ. This covenant is described in the New Testament and prophetically promised in the Old Testament.

According to Hebrews 8:10-12, salvation through Christ is actually a covenant relationship that brings us into an intimate union with the Lord. In this relationship we can all know and be taught by God, and promised that our sins will be forgiven. Furthermore, the concepts of covenant are the ways of God for faithful righteous relationship to Him and others. We present these concepts through seminars and classes such as:Ron teaching covenant at SSMI

We also work within the Body of Christ in local churches in the ministries of prayer, intercession, prophetic expression and healing; and work alongside other ministries as the Lord gives opportunity, such as mission trips to foreign countries.

Local Ministry

Ron and Tonia do counseling and prayer ministry for individuals and married couples to help them find healing and wholeness, greater intimacy with the Lord, overcome life-robbing habits and attitudes, and offer relationship tools.

As a service to the Lord and the community they do not charge for counseling, though donations to their ministry work are accepted with appreciation.

We are often asked about the name of our ministry. “Shammah” is one of the Jehovah names of God in Hebrew, found in Ezekiel 48:35. It means “The Lord is Present.”
