The Immanuel Encounter Guide Training

Since 2010 Alive & Well has been effectively training both professionals and lay-persons to lead others into the presence of Jesus using the approach learned from Dr. Jim Wilder and Dr. Karl Lehman, developed by Margaret Webb. 

Alive & Well's commitment has always been to train not only with information and observation but with intensive practice in relationally driven small groups led by trained mentors.
