Advanced Healing and Deliverance CourseThis course is offered every other year at the Community of the Cross in Black Mountain NC and other locations as announced. Contact the PRMI office for an application form for the most recent course.
It is designed for those who have been through both the Healing and Spiritual Warfare Dunamis Projects and want to go deeper in healing ministry. The course is a year-long process that involves attending three workshops in Black Mountain, NC, mentoring by Dunamis Fellwoship faculty, reading recommended books on healing and deliverance, and practical, hands-on experience.
|The Rev. Bill Emrich teaching on deliverance ministry at the Advanced Healing and Deliverance Course at the Community of the Cross.
Bill has extensive experience in discerning the presence of evil spirits and casting them out of people in the name of Jesus Christ. He is giving us the biblical basis for this ministry of casting out evil spirits through teaching. The Holy Spirit also moved in power enabling us to experience first hand the dynamics of Jesus working through us to cast out demons. These demonstrations of the power of God also provided excellent teaching and learning opportunities.
Each student accepted into the year-long course will be assigned a mentor. These are men and women from the Dunamis Fellowship who have gifts in healing and deliverance ministry. The mentors will review the student’s work and give feedback each month. Face-to-face meetings may occur only at the workshops in North Carolina.
|At the advanced healing and deliverance sessions a lot of learning takes place as we share together our experiences.|
Practical Experience and Project
One learns to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ ministry of healing and deliverance through practical experience. So all students are encouraged to be involved in healing and deliverance prayer ministry in their local church. They are also welcomed to be on ministry teams at PRMI events such as the Dunamis Project. This will need to be arranged with the Dunamis Project track coordinators. Each student will develop a project involving healing ministry in their local context. Some examples may be building a healing prayer team for the local congregation or leading ministry at a Dunamis Project event.
|The members of the course participate in worship and prayer, which provides the contexts for the teaching and practice. By design, the numbers of participants are kept small so that there can be deeper fellowship and sharing together. We learn best by being in a context of trust and freedom that is grounded in scripture, centered in Jesus Christ and welcoming of the Holy Spirit.|
