Healing Ministries

Healing Ministries within this Christian community is an expression of love and compassion. It is a renewal of the ancient way of healing, central to the ministry of Jesus. Designed to open and transform, it awakens the body’s own healing powers. It nourishes the spirit and enlivens our inner essence.

Healing Ministries is about restoring balance and wholeness to the body, mind, and spirit – not only to individuals, but also to relationships, communities, and all of creation.  Please click here to view a video.
