This course, taught by Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr., episcopal leader of the Great Plains Conference, will familiarize you with the adventurous healing ministry of Christ and renew your practice of healing prayer and whole person ministry. Bishop Saenz — whose doctoral dissertation topic was “Healing Prayer and Rite: A Necessary Evangelistic Activity for Hispanic Ministry” — will help you will explore your personal questions and concerns as they relate to the healing ministry in a safe, encouraging, and open atmosphere. You will learn that Christ’s salvation is holistic, encompassing not only the salvation of our souls, but also inclusive of healing-saving wholeness for broken bodies, spirits, minds, relationships, institutions, and communities. You will grow in your appreciation and recognition that medicine, psychiatry, therapy, and prayer are not in opposition but actually work together to heal and make whole. More importantly, you will have an opportunity to reflect on your personal spiritual journey, remembering God’s gracious help throughout your life in the good times and bad, and discern where God is leading you next in your personal life and in the life of your church. Proceeds from this class will go in part to two organizations dedicated to the lives of youth in the Great Plains Conference: Youthville in Kansas and to Epworth Village in Nebraska
