WHAT PEOPLE SAY about our training
DARRYLL AND ELIZABETH, PRAYER COORDINATORS
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.

Develop an Immanuel Lifestyle community.
Take the Immanuel Lifestyle Course.
The Immanuel Lifestyle is inspired by the scripture that calls Jesus Immanuel, the God who is with us. It involves an important paradigm shift in Christian discipleship and healing that focuses on regular, interactive connection with the real presence of Jesus. The Alive and Well Immanuel Lifestyle Course is informed by the work of Dr Jim Wilder of Life Model Works and Dr Karl Lehman of the Immanuel Approach, as well as the professional experience of Margaret Webb and Jessica Duisberg.
