Do you have a heart for hurting and broken people and long to be able to help them more effectively? Do you want to bring more of Jesus’ healing power into your church? Are you looking for a concentrated training programme? Impact may be the answer to your desire to be equipped to bring God’s love into a broken world that is in need of healing, whilst also finding help for your own personal struggles.
... and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal.
Impact is a 20 day concentrated programme of teaching and practical ministry experience, designed to better equip you to fulfil Jesus’ commission to bring healing to others, as well as to experience greater personal wholeness in your own life.
It is primarily designed for those who want to be further equipped to minister to people in need of the healing touch of Jesus. Often popular with pastors and leaders, this course requires a good level of Christian maturity to make the most of the concentrated teaching schedule and practical workshops.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
Healing for the human spirit is a precious work of God’s grace available for all believers, as we allow Him to show us the true condition of our hearts, the deep wounding caused by others and the need for us to extend forgiveness.
Through wrong teaching or when we have been frequently or deeply hurt, and when pressed by our carnality, we can form sinful beliefs, attitudes and prejudices concerning ourselves and the world around us.
Those who have suffered an accident may have received excellent medical care, but sometimes there is a lingering issue of disorder due to an inner unhealed place, which can only be fully restored by Jesus.
This is a damaging spiritual condition inherited from our ancestors as a result of their sin. The Bible tells us that this inheritance can affect family lines, each sinful idolatrous practice reaching its full effect after three or four generations.
For a Christian, deliverance is encountered not just in the wonderful process of being born again — the precious transfer from spiritual darkness of the enemy;s domain to the light of the Kingdom of God (Colossians 1:13) — but also in the ongoing, and very necessary, cleansing of our lives.
When we try to self-protect, such as hiding behind a brave face, without knowing or seeking God’s help, the anxiety and fear can remain unresolved, with a grip on our lives today.
In the place of a growing heart security, we can find a restoration of peace in all the human relationships which have caused us wounding and pain. As we forgive others and confess our own wrong behaviours, God pardons, cleanses and brings deep healing to the places of distress and bondage.
There is much opportunity through generational iniquity, parental sin, abuse and personal wrongdoing, for damage to occur in a person’s sexuality, causing a range of dysfunctions. Thankfully, God can restore the deepest places of inner wounding in our lives when we come to him in obedience to His ways.
Alongside the training, there will be times of personal ministry, where guests can apply the teaching to their own personal struggles to enable them to move forward in finding and fulfilling their calling.
The first part of the programme provides core biblical teaching on the healing ministry of Jesus. This lays an essential scriptural basis for understanding Kingdom principles relating to healing. The practical application of these principles to common problems in people’s lives is then explored.
The second part of the programme provides practical teaching and experience of healing ministry under the supervision of the Ellel prayer ministry team.
Through the 20 days, the teaching naturally grows from the core foundations through to the practical details of how to minister effectively into a person’s life. Once the Biblical foundations are laid, the teaching explores deeper into specific topics so you can gain a fuller understanding of the healing ministry and how it all fits together.
Along the way there will be times of discussion, group sessions and worksheets to consolidate your learning experience and times of personal prayer ministry to allow God to work through your personal issues. Most evenings are kept free for rest, with some times of worship, fellowship and creativity times also included.
Impact is first and foremost a training programme. If you can answer yes to some of these questions, then it may be just right for you!
Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth.
The ministry of healing and deliverance, restoring lives that are wounded, broken or in spiritual bondage, is often referred to as prayer ministry. It is being alongside a fellow believer, together seeking God for His truth and grace, and helping to bring God’s healing into the person’s life.
This is the acting and speaking, in prayer and proclamation, in agreement with God concerning His will for particular people and situations. Agreement with God undermines the authority of the enemy. Intercession advances the Kingdom of God on earth and brings about His purposes in human lives (Matthew 6:10).
Once established in a person’s life, rejection can become an enslaving mindset which even seems to define something of their identity — as a rejected person. Rejection is the way of the world, not of God’s Kingdom. A decision to agree with God removes the bondage of rejection and fear, and leads to the disempowerment of all the enemy’s spiritual holds.
Rightful expression of emotions brings God’s order in our lives whenever we find ourselves facing demanding issues (Psalm 62:8). Unfortunately, the truth for most of us is that especially in our childhood, such emotions could not always be expressed as God intended, which has left us with a painful storehouse of ’emotional magma’ ready to erupt like a volcano.
