Dear Friend,

Why the The Legacy Series?


After much prayer and many conversations, I decided to step down as President of Healing Care Ministries in the Fall of 2023. That decision lead to a very important question. Where will I now concentrate my attention?

The answer was not slow in coming. Beside speaking and writing, I want to invest in small groups of people who are hungry to go deeper with the Lord. It is in my heart to pass on key principles of the Kingdom that have shaped my life and my ministry, and do so through a series of concentrated events limited to a dozen people ready to experience the presence of the Lord. 


Those who choose to spend a week with me in retreat will receive teaching on critical topics related to the Christian life. There will also be time for personal integration, small group discussion, spiritual exercises, and of course worship. I am calling this The Legacy Series.

With all my love and gratitude,
