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!
