Healing Care Ministry
The Healing Care Small Group Program
The Healing Care Small Group Program is a ministry of The Healing Place, A ministry of Christian Counseling and Healing Prayer of the New Canaan Worship Center in partnership with First Shiloh Baptist Church, Mechanicsville, Virginia.
Purpose: Based on the concepts of Formational Counseling, a ministry of Christian caregiving that integrates pastoral care, spiritual direction, and spirit-directed counseling with a view to bringing hope, healing, and spiritual well-being to broken people. Participants will explore the process of formational prayer and the relationship past wounding and traumatic events have upon dysfunctional behavior and emotional upheaval.
Formational Prayer is a process of deep emotional healing that positions people to meet Jesus in the memories of past wounding experiences. It is a Christ-centered, Spirit directed process of prayer that seeks to bring the presence of Jesus into the place of deep emotional wounds. Such wounds often generate destructive false beliefs, debilitating emotional turmoil, and countless dysfunctional behaviors in the lives of God's people. Through formational prayer, hurting people are able to experience the transforming power of Christ that brings freedom and release.
