The Elijah List is a nondenominational prophetic website created by Steve Shultz in 1997 with 127,000 subscribers as of March 2006. The name of the site comes from the Old Testament prophet, Elijah. The list's mission statement says that it "is called to transmit around the world, in agreement with Holy Scripture, fresh daily prophetic 'manna' from the Lord, regarding the days in which we live." The site receives content from a large number of American "prophets" and "seers" and contains links to many of their sites. Secular media have called it "sort of a clearinghouse for end-of-the-world religious prophecy"
Various members of "the prophetic movement" have credited their exposure and/or popularity to their writings on the Elijah List, including Catherine Brown, Undrai Fizer, and Chad Taylor.
The Elijah List was holding eponymous conferences as early as November 2000. It gained significant readership following the September 11 attacks in 2001, and its postings were later cited in criticisms of President George W. Bush's use of religious imagery in the war on terror. In 2002, the list carried appeals against the impending U.S. invasion of Iraq, fearing dire consequences to Iraqi Christians in the event of such an invasion. In 2005, Shultz alienated a number of readers by issuing a news release alleging that Hurricane Katrina was a manifestation of God's wrath. In a March 2006 profile, Charisma noted that "The Elijah List has more than 127,000 subscribers and has become the largest platform for prophetic ministers."
In March 2011, former Elijah List web master, Kevin Kleint, released his account of events behind the scenes of the Elijah List in his blog series, "My 7 Years Working for the Elijah List".
