The Radiant Person

The Radiant Person as who Jesus calls us to be.  Inner Healing and Radiant Living will outline the basics principles and methods to use to accomplish life transformation.  

  The more we experience inner healing the more our true radiant identity in Christ will shine forth.  I will demonstrate how inner healing through prayer therapy can be used to facilitate this.

Expect to receive emotional healing during the summer camp and retreat but do not come if your primary need is to be healed.  This is a training course.

Inner Healing for Marriages

I will teach how to apply these principles to blocks to marital intimacy and communication.  You will learn to recognize patterns that block marital relationships and learn how to use inner healing prayer therapy to deal with these issues. 

This course is to teach ministers, counsellors and those in prayer ministry to be effective in prayer therapy and ministry.  For ministers there will be topics of personal interest to your congregation that you can use for sermon material.

Breaking Curses and Spiritual Warfare

I consider it important that we all understand safe and effective ways to break curses and do spiritual warfare.  Some time will be dedicated to these important topics.

Practicum in Prayer Therapy

 The primary purpose of the course is to provide you with information, insight, principles and methods to use in prayer therapy.  There will be practicum sessions and a demonstration component so that you can see the methods being used before your eyes.

 This course is to teach ministers, counsellors and those in prayer ministry to be effective in prayer therapy and ministry.  Ministers will learn some interesting and relevant topics that can be used for sermon material.


I would love for you join me at Singing Waters Retreat Center for this summer course.  It will be fun, informative and encouraging.  You can expect a relasing and pleasant stay at the lovely retreat setting of Singing Waters.  The building is air conditioned which might be helpful because sometimes Canadian summers do provide summer weather.
