Our Practitioners

We are here for you! We believe “with God, all things are possible.” Talk to a Practitioner if you are in need of inspiration, a celebration of a major event in your life, or healing in any area: financial, relational, health, or career. You are God’s wondrous gift. Let a Practitioner remind you of that!

Licensed practitioners are the praying arm of the church. Having completed two years of advanced study, practitioners are professionally licensed to work with individuals to support them in connecting with and living from their highest selves. Practitioners are available for prayer immediately following Sunday service or for a private paid session by appointment.
