WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING
ABOUT HEALING CARE WORKSHOPS?
“As a Christian nurse working in mental health, I have seen that psychology alone does not usually bring total healing. The Christ-centered teaching of the Formational Prayer Seminar is helping me understand how the Holy Spirit works through the caregiver to bring inner healing, the missing piece in my work.”
- Eleanor, RN
“This is not a seminar — it is an invitation to an ongoing relationship with our Healer, Jesus Christ. I took this seminar to find healing for others and found it for myself.”
- Kim, Clinical Counselor
“The Formational Prayer Seminar is an insightful and life-giving opportunity for training in healing those with wounded hearts. I am profoundly grateful to Dr. Wardle for his open and honest approach blending sound psychology and biblical Truth.”

We are blessed to have a staff of skilled and experienced caregivers who have diverse professional and educational backgrounds.

HOW IS HEALING CARE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COUNSELING TRAINING?
There are three factors that set Healing Care Ministries seminars apart from traditional counseling training events. The first is our emphasis on the caregiver. We believe we can't take wounded people to places of healing and freedom if we haven't first gone their ourselves. All of our events emphasize the spiritual formation and ongoing healing of the caregiver. Our seminars are also unique in that we incorporate demonstrations and experiential activities. We have found in-person demonstrations to be one of the best ways to introduce and teach our recommended modalities. The third difference between Healing Care Ministries and traditional counseling training is our emphasis on the Holy Spirit. We take special care to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit before each event and realign ourselves with any new thing God wants to do among us.
