WHAT PEOPLE SAY about our training


This might be the missing link in many churches, a simple introduction to having an ongoing interactive relationship with the Father, just as Jesus did. We are very excited about this!


Our team is now equipped and confident to minister in Immanuel Prayer. In the two short months since our training, we have seen many people experience the loving presence of God in a way that they never have before.


"What a profound, yet easy to learn, relational model for transformation, spiritual growth and healing! The best 8 weeks of spiritual training I’ve experienced. This material is changing me, my ministry, and my community."
