Healing Prayer Ministry

This ministry provides private prayer sessions that will help bring freedom and healing of physical illness, past hurts and current life difficulties. We believe that God is merciful, He loves us and He wants to heal us in all areas of our lives. In this way, we become a "whole" person in His kingdom and grow into His likeness. We minister in confidential teams of several mature, compassionate and trained intercessors. In addition, since we are a church where small groups form the basis of healthy relationships and healing, we support and provide assistance to them and are not a replacement for them. We will help provide information on their various meeting times and locations in our community. At the end of the Healing Prayer sessions we will evaluate the need for additional prayer sessions, recommend additional pastoral/professional counseling or follow-up help with a small group leader. If you would like an application form for receiving Healing Prayer; please download the Request for Healing Prayer Application.  Or, you may email  to obtain a copy.
