Grace Church is a vibrant congregation in Noblesville, Indiana with a passion for reaching out to the community and world. We created a 2-day workshop to prepare Grace’s pastors and lay prayer ministers to facilitate Immanuel sessions, and to consider how intentionally cultivating connection with God could impact the various ministries of their congregation.
“Grace Church was looking for an approach that would equip our prayer team to minister more effectively to those in pain. In researching Immanuel Prayer, we came across the Alive and Well videos. The videos were so instructive that we knew we had to have the Alive and Well team train us. They crafted a training that allowed us to get the basics ahead of time. Their time with us was heavily experiential. As a result, our team is equipped and confident to minister in Immanuel Prayer. In the two short months since our training, we have seen many people experience the loving presence of God in a way that they never have before. People have received healing words. People have been changed. I highly recommend Alive and Well to any who would desire a similar impact in their community.”
