We have a heart to see people "set free" (Isaiah 61:1-3; Galatians 5:1; John 8:36) from anything that hinders them in their relationship with our Heavenly Father. We have been trained in deep healing ministry over the years.
We headed up a Cleansing Stream Ministry at Coast in Torrance and trained over 100 people as a part of our ministry team. We have been through Sozo Ministry (Bethel) and also been trained in WellSpring Ministry in Anchorage, AK (Biblical Foundations of Freedom).
From our earliest days in Campus Ministry (Eagle's Nest at Radford University and Virginia Tech), we learned deep healing ministry from our spiritual dad, Rick Sizemore (Dealing Jesus and Dwelling Place NRV).
We experienced it firsthand in our own lives, helping us find forgiveness, offer forgiveness and get healed of wounds and trauma dating back to our childhood, rebellious misspent teenage years. We also found freedom from sin bondages (Hebrews 12:1).
From "Renewing the mind, Flesh patterns, Strongholds and Demonic oppression" to understanding our Needs (9 intrinsic needs we all were created with), to Emotions and how to deal with them. We've spent our entire ministry history helping people find freedom and healing on the inside.
Many people think that external or circumstantial change is what is needed to help them in their struggles, when God is often looking for internal transformation to help us get through our current situations. When the enemy has no "hold" on the inside, it doesn't matter what kind of "heat" is on the outside (Ephesians 4:27).
Since we are called to "grow up in all (emphasis mine) aspects into the Head..." which is Jesus (Ephesians 4:15), we endeavor to minister to the whole person: spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and socially.
We focus on 4 major areas of ministry to a person:
1. Crisis ministry (present): Most people have immediate ministry needs that they feel need to be addressed. It could be personal, relational, financial, or physical... it might be stress, depression, fear, anxiety, bitterness or a sin struggle. With the truth of the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, we can minister love, forgiveness, and hope in and to these areas.
2. Confession/Conforming (past): Many spiritual issues and afflictions of both the body and soul are tied to areas where we either need to repent (confess) or offer forgiveness to those who have done things to us. (James 5:16; Ephesians 5:13) Sometimes physical issues (sickness, etc.) are often tied to spiritual issues.
God wants us to be conformed to the image of His Son (Romans 8:29; Colossians 1:28), so we must lay aside the old self and put on the new (2nd Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 4:22-24).
3. Counsel/Discipleship (present-future): Beyond the 'crisis' many people may need ongoing ministry to deal with deeper or systemic issues in their lives. These could also be hurts, wounds, addictions, bad choices or sin bondage. We are called to "make disciples," so this process helps us to bring truth and ongoing freedom to these areas by consistent and intentional ministry.
4. Coaching (future): Sometimes we feel "stuck" and are not moving forward because we lack direction, focus or a sense of purpose. Meeting to find out and/or expand God's design and plan for your life (Jeremiah 29:11-14; Romans 8:28) can help us to begin to walk out and fulfill the destiny that God has created us for.
