HEALING PRAYER TRAINING
Equipping the saints for carrying out the Great Commission
Healing Prayer Training
(If you are looking for our more general Healing Ministry page? Click here. )
Church of the Holy Spirit, Leesburg teaches our Biblical Healing Course in training modules where we learn how to pray for 3 types of healing: physical healing, inner healing, and deliverance; and, how to listen to God, and connect with Him conversationally.
Sessions are being held on Wednesday evenings at 6:45 – 9:15 in the Nave at the church. Pastor Clancy Nixon teaches and facilitates these meetings, along with members of our healing prayer team. Each week, we have live teaching, discussion, and either large group demonstration, or small group practicum, praying for each other in a safe setting. We always debrief our prayer sessions so we can learn from them. (Occasionally, we have recorded teachings.)
This course is being offered to equip any Christian to confidently pray for the sick, wounded, and oppressed, and see people healed. You will learn about your authority to heal the sick and cast out demons, and the proper prayer model for each type of healing. You will have the opportunity to practice what you learn, and receive healing yourself as class members minister to each other. The course is not graded, nor is anyone expected to become a member of a prayer team. (You may have an opportunity to become a member of our prayer team, depending on your spiritual maturity and demonstrated skill.) When you pray for others during the course, you are expected to follow our prayer guidelines, which we hand out to course participants.
There is no fee for the course. Each module includes a book or manual which costs $5-$30 depending on the module and will be available for purchase at the class. Additional resource books may be recommended for more in depth study, but are not required.
You may participate in any module. There are no prerequisites.
Childcare is available upon request by calling the church @ 703-726-0777.

Fall 2019 – Winter 2021: Inner Healing, Modules 1 and 2
Module 1: Inner Healing – Leanne Payne, The Healing Presence; and Restoring the Christian Soul
Dates: 9/11/2019 – 1/29/2020 Our first module on Inner Healing begins by looking at 2 classics in Inner Healing ministry theory and practice, Leanne Payne’s books above. She gives us the theological understanding we need to approach healing of soul wounds, and resultant behavioral maladjustments. We’ll learn our basic prayer model for inner healing, and many particular manifestations of woundedness, particularly types of sexual brokenness. Pastor Clancy Nixon and team will teach live from her books, and we will practice by praying for each other in small groups. As always, we debrief each prayer session.
Module 2: Inner Healing – Karl Lehman, The Immanuel Approach
Dates: 2/12/2020 – 12/9/2020 Our second module in Inner Healing will dive into Karl Lehman’s exhaustive work showing us how to connect with Jesus, hear from him, and listen to his healing words. He not only heals our souls from destructive lies we have believed, but he also heals us simply by connecting with him. We will learn and practice Karl’s inner healing model. Pastor Clancy Nixon and team will teach live from his books. We will watch video demonstrations from Karl himself ministering, do our own live demos, and practice by praying for each other in small groups. As always, we debrief each prayer session.
Advanced Prayer Ministry Training Resources
The prayer ministers on our team have received training, and in some cases certification, from several excellent ministries. We have listed those ministries here as sources for you to obtain more advanced training in healing prayer ministry. This list is by no means the only other sources for training but are merely the ones that we utilize most often in our ministry.
Christian Healing Institute
The Christian Healing Institute (CHI) has been formed to increase the knowledge and practice of Christian healing ministry and intercessory prayer. They offer a variety of healing and prayer training and equipping events and resources. They also publish a twice-monthly newsletter on healing and prayer events in Northern Virginia and in the broader region. CHI is based in Falls Church, VA.
Healing Center International
HCI facilitates development of healthy, maturing communities where people can experientially encounter God. HCI offers classes, groups and resources; leadership development and mentoring; as well as an annual conference to connect and sustain healthy, caring communities. Most of their offerings center around the teaching and ministry of Life Model Works (Joy Starts Here, Thrive) and Connexus (Restarting, Forming, Belonging). HCI is based in Reston, VA.
Christian Healing Ministries
Christian Healing Ministries is a Christ-centered, ecumenical, and non-profit organization that is dedicated to the practice and teaching of healing prayer. Founded by Francis and Judith McNutt, CHM offers healing prayer, live healing prayer training, video training classes, and various books and other resources related to healing prayer. CHM is based in Jacksonville, FL.
Christian Healing Certification Program
Developed by the Global Awakening ministry, the Christian Healing Certification Program (CHCP) is an online ministry training program with an emphasis on offering an educational experience often overlooked in traditional seminaries. CHCP presents a practical, theologically grounded option for anyone looking to expand their ministry training.
CHCP embraces a holistic approach, providing a hands-on experience for anyone with an interest in Physical Healing, Inner Healing or Deliverance. This online program allows students to take as many or as few courses as needed to suit their schedule and their ministry needs. Global Awakening and CHCP is based in Mechanicsburg, PA.
Restoring the Foundations
Restoring the Foundations is an integrated healing model that is based on 4 foundational truths (Cross of Christ, Forgiveness, God’s Loving Design and Four Unchanging Laws) and 4 basic sources of problems (Generational Sins and Curses, Ungodly Beliefs, Life’s hurts, and Demonic Oppression). The ministry provides healing ministry for individuals as well as training for prayer ministers. RTF is based in Henderson, NC.
HeartSync Ministry focuses on the primary mission statement of Christ to heal the brokenhearted (Luke 4:17-18a), whereby Christ gives us singleness of heart and action (Jer.32:39) to the end that we are then able to love the Lord our God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our mind. (Matt. 22:37) HeartSync Ministry does this by intentionally synchronizing the most core parts of our heart to the Lord in a short period of time.
The ministry offers healing sessions for individuals as well as training and mentoring for healing prayer ministers. Courses are periodically offered locally through the Christian Healing Institute (christianhealinginstitute.org).
