About Barbara Miller

Pastors Barbara Miller and her husband Norman planted a church in Cairns in 1996 and named it Tabernacle of David in 2000. They founded the Centre for International Reconciliation and Peace, a para-church ministry in 1997 as they have a strong focus on reconciliation, justice, prayer and worship and work for transformation in Indigenous communities. They have led a number of prayer events for Australia Day including a key one in Canberra in 2019. After this the Lord led them to set up a spiritual shadow government with prayer leaders covering portfolios.

They hosted Psalm 24:7 conferences in Cairns 2003, Parliament House Canberra 2004, Uluru 2005, Sydney 2006, Bendigo and Melbourne 2007, Cairns 2009 and Parliament House Canberra 2010, 2011 and 2012 and helped launch the Canberra Declaration and the National Day of Prayer and Fasting at these conferences.

Norman is also an Aboriginal artist and Barbara is a psychologist, mediator and trainer.

The Millers teach on Israel and have celebrated the Biblical feasts since 1997. They lead a team of Australians to Israel regularly and have ministered in the Palestinian territories, Turkey, England, Canada, the USA, Zimbabwe, Guatemala, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, NZ, PNG, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. The Millers were the (2005-2012) leaders of the Bethany Gate and Australia under the Jerusalem House of Prayer for All Nations and hosted the Bethany Gate & All Pacific Prayer Assembly attended by over 2,000 people in Cairns May 2006. 

Barbara is also the author of several books, most of them on Australian history and biography, including one of a 100-year-old Holocaust survivor.
