Like so many in ministry, I was acquainted with the healing promises of God but had rarely seen changed lives. All of that was altered, as the encouragement and principles learned at various Benny Hinn Ministries events transformed my ministry.
It was at the invitation of a crusade physician, Dr. Dan Gordeuk, that I attended a Benny Hinn Ministries event. He had seen the power of God and wanted me to experience the same at a crusade. I found myself seated in the first row, square in front of the pulpit. I presume God knew I needed extra attention by seeing things up close! My spiritual world was rocked. By the second crusade I was invited to be on the platform by a staff person. No one knew that I had prayed through the night that God would show me all He wanted me to see. By the last evening, while others pastors were up on their feet praising God, I was on my knees with my face in the fabric of the chair in front of me! The power of God was so intense; I realized I needed to change. I told the Lord I would never hold back what I knew of the Holy Spirit again.
Over the next years, through the kindness of the Benny Hinn Ministries staff, I have continued to learn about the power of God and the ministry of healing. Being in fellowship with Benny Hinn Ministries has changed my life, my family, and has deeply affected the church I pastor. Almost immediately, a new dimension of anointing spread in my ministry. We now have a weekly Sunday evening healing and anointing service. It has been a continuous stream of transformed lives. It is just awesome to watch Jesus heal and liberate people today!
I cherish the relationships I have made through my association with Benny Hinn Ministries, and they are among the most treasured in my life. Pastor Benny speaks to my heart; it is just that simple.The recent pastors’ conference in Dallas is just an example of what is available. I have never come away from a conference as deeply challenged, encouraged, and focused in ministry. When you walk out the door of a conference, and realize you already miss the people, something dynamic and meaningful has happened. Being a part of the World Healing Fellowship has opened the doors for this growth. I encourage you to get involved!
