Training Courses by Beth Tephillah Ministries and Roaring Mouse Counselling:
The followers of Jesus are engaged in a battle to win the hearts and minds of people back to God. To be able to pray accurately and with power, and to minister Jesus' words of healing to troubled people, we must first be able to hear, identify, understand and obey the voice of Father God. Training courses and seminars held at Beth Tephillah Ministry Centre and by Roaring Mouse Counselling are designed to teach both old and new ways to help people live and work effectively in a rapidly changing, postmodern, post-Christian world.
In Healing Prayer Ministry, which used to be called Prayer Counselling, a small team (usually two) of trained prayer ministers will talk and pray with the person needing healing, using the gifts of the Holy Spirit to discern what God wants to do, and cooperating with him to bring about healing. In our preferred model there will also be an intercession team praying elsewhere for the ministry and recording the Lord's word for the person. It is not counselling, and the team are not counsellors. We rely on the one Great Counsellor to do the work, through our prayer in the name of Jesus.
Since 2000 we have taught courses and run seminars in the following main areas:
- Hearing God's voice
- Intimacy with God
- Spiritual Warfare
- Healing Prayer Ministry
The instruction is based on the Bible, and comprises times of teaching, demonstration, practice exercises, and group and personal ministry.
Courses typically run from between 2 to 10 days, on one Saturday in successive months.
In addition, we typically run a seminar each month on a topic related to the above main areas. So far we have run day, or day/evening seminars on:
- Hearing God's Voice
- Intimacy with God
- Generational Healing
- Dealing with Dissociation
- Prayer Ministry and Mental Health Issues
Many further topics are planned for future seminars.
Further training is available as a supervised placement at an approved prayer ministry centre or similar, for practice, as well as other seminars and workshops during the year. Current approved centres are those who are members of the Healing Prayer Ministry Network, of which Beth Tephillah Ministries is a member.
People who have completed training with another organisation are welcome to gain further practical experience and extension of their knowledge by interning with us at the Beth Tephillah Ministry Centre.
Fees will vary, but currently each session costs $25. The fee covers all instruction and ministry, course notes and refreshments.
Courses and seminars will be announced and advertised regularly on this website and in our various associated websites and blogs. Watch them to find out what is happening.
