Receive Immanuel Encounter Prayer

Since 2010 Alive and Well has been training Immanuel Encounter Guides based on the works of Karl Lehman and Jim Wilder.

Our guides listed below have been through our foundational Lifestyle Course and our 10 week, intensive, Immanuel Encounter Guide Training.

Because of their passion for Immanuel Encounter Prayer they have also been part of training others in these skills.

Our listed Alive & Well Guides have the opportunity for continued training and support within our organization.

They also utilize the Alive & Well approach to Immanuel Prayer.

If you are interested in receiving an Immanuel Encounter Guide session please see the list below and contact the guide directly.

Appointments and payment are independently handled by the guides.

Cathy noa

Cathy has been an inner healing student for over 35 years and is continuing to learn and grow as an Immanuel Prayer guide. She loves the way Alive and Well trains new guides and is a committed mentor for Alive and Well courses and practice groups. She hopes for Immanuel Prayer to become a lifestyle of every Jesus-follower. To help with that big dream, Cathy, along with her husband, Carlos have started a not-for-profit ministry, Missional Immanuel Network, to help microchurches in St. Louis form around the pillars of intimacy with Immanuel, healthy relationships with one another, and lives poured out for those who do not yet know Jesus as teacher and Lord. Cathy has also trained with Dr. Karl Lehman.
