Healing Prayer Equipping Conference

(Co-Sponsored by Region 3 OSL)

"Unbound Prayer Ministry Training"

Presenter - Pastor Ben Akery

March 20-22 - (Fri. 5:00 pm - Sun. 12 noon)

Registration Deadline Monday, March 16, 2020

High Pastures Retreat Center
*(GPS: Use 1480 Georges Fork Rd. Burnsville, NC)

Over and over again, Jesus modeled for us that deliverance ministry is meant to be a normal part of healing ministry. Unbound Ministry provides us with a prayer model that is intentionally non-confrontational and rooted in God’s love, seeking to set the captives free with great effectiveness. The model seeks to bring the root cause of the issue to the surface by using “Five Keys”.  Doors (entry points) opened to the enemy are closed, and doors closed to our Father’s blessings are opened.

During this equipping prayer conference we will focus on the practical steps involved in leading a healing prayer session using the Unbound model. Teaching topics include: Overview of the Five Keys, Ministry to Others, A Non-Confrontational Approach to Deliverance, Interview Tips and Resources, Intercession and Speaking the Father’s Blessing. Come and be ready to receive this much needed prayer tool for the healing of God’s people!

For the most effective equipping experience, we encourage everyone to read Neal Lozano’s book, Unbound – A Practical Guide to Deliverance, prior to attending this conference. There will be an option to purchase the book on the registration form.

Who Are We?

In the spring of 2018, under the experience, faith, and able leadership of the Rev. John Rice as Director, the Lord has risen up a new healing prayer ministry, “The Blessing Place of Western North Carolina,” at a beautiful mountainside, Christian Retreat Center in Burnsville, NC. We are nondenominational and Holy Spirit driven.  The ministry was “birthed” with a prayer ministers’ training weekend followed by a Healing Prayer Weekend. Both weekends were blessed with a fresh release of the Holy Spirit that equipped and empowered the prayer ministers for healing and led prayer recipients to experience the love and healing presence of Jesus. If you or someone you know would benefit from being blessed and prayed for in the beauty of God’s creation, you are encouraged to join us for a weekend of healing prayer.

At The Blessing Place of Western North Carolina, we have witnessed God’s people being healed and set free of emotional hurts, broken relationships, physical illness, spiritual oppression and other life struggles by speaking Spirit-filled blessing prayers and using other forms of prayer for physical, spiritual, or inner healing (see the "Training" and "Events" sections of our web site). 

God’s promise to bless is certainly being fulfilled at this beautiful location in Western North Carolina!
