WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING
ABOUT HEALING CARE SEMINARS?
"I have led the 16-week healing care groups for many years and I am still amazed at how God works in the process so powerfully in people's lives. It is a joy and honor to have a front-row seat as people encounter Jesus in significant and life-changing ways. It is fantastic to experience Jesus personally but it is beyond words to see others experience Jesus.
Healing Care has been the single most spiritual growth-producing community that I have ever been a part of.
- Cathy Lewis
"The Healing Care seminars have changed my life and ministry. I was quiet and unwilling to speak up, thinking people wouldn’t listen to me. I have been empowered and have found my voice. I am now leading Healing Care groups and assisting with seminars in my area. Personally, and in ministry, the seminars and trainings have brought out the true me."
- Fran McCarthy
"Through Healing Care I have personally experienced the Kingdom traits of kindness, compassion, gentleness, and love. And, I now know that I have a seat at the Lord's table even though life seems hopeless in the valley of the shadow of death.
Through Healing Care I have encountered a new language...it is the language of GRACE...lavish, indescribable, scandalous GRACE."
