Embracing a Ministry of Formational Care

 Join us for a Healing Place Event


Friday, November 08, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

Event Information

Seminar Overview

The Journey to Wholeness Seminar is a two-part training program composed of two modules:  Pathways to Healing (Module I) and Embracing the Ministry of Formational Prayer (Module II).  Combined these two modules will prepare clergy, counselors, family life counselors, lay counselors and Christian educators to provide care and intervention to hurting individuals and families.  

Both modules focus on the ministry of Formational Prayer, a healing care ministry pioneered by Dr. Terry Wardle. Formational Prayer is a ministry of the Holy Spirit, moving through a Christian caregiver, bringing the healing presence of Jesus into the place of pain and brokenness within a wounded person. Special applications of the Formational Prayer Model will be the focus of this skills development training for helping the broken. Each module includes teaching, modeling, group experience and special workshops.


Module II: Objectives


  • Demonstrate pathways that help people dismantle destructive false beliefs
  • Biblical and Theological foundations for inner-healing
  • Principles of Spiritual warfare and healing
  • Equip Caregivers for good self-care
  • Teach steps for dealing with deep wounds
  • Sin, Wounds, Brokenness and the place of forgiveness
