Note: This workshop is Part 1 of a year-long course that involves attending one workshop Edmonton, AB and one in Black Mountain, NC USA plus mentoring, reading and practical experience.
This workshop is designed for those who have been through both the Healing (DP#4) and Spiritual Warfare (DP#5) Dunamis projects and want to go deeper in healing ministry.
The teaching will focus on specific healing topics such as healing from sexual abuse, praying with children for healing and understanding the relationship between healing prayer and psychology.
The invitation from Jesus to join him in healing ministry is exciting and sometimes intimidating. People make themselves vulnerable by inviting us into the pain, hurt and crisis in their lives.
Would you like to have opportunity to grow in this ministry? Would you like the security of “practicing” in an environment where experienced mentors can help and advise you? Do you want to better understand how Jesus “did it?”
“When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority … and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” Luke 9:1-2 NIV
Like any kind of prayer, healing prayer can be so simple that a 4-yr-old child can do it and see answers, and at the same time there is always more to learn. One reason is that Jesus calls us to not just fix a person’s illness or problems, but to love them and call them into discipleship.
The Advanced Course on Healing and Deliverance provides the opportunity to go deeper, see how your gifts can function in team ministry, and see the depth and breadth of God’s healing power. This workshop is designed for those who have been through both the Healing and Spiritual Warfare Dunamis projects and want to go deeper in healing ministry.
This first workshop will focus on intensive review and practice of principles from Dunamis Projects on Healing (#4) and Spiritual Warfare (#5).
This workshop is Part 1 of a year-long course that involves
- attending three workshops - two in Edmonton and one in Black Mountain,
- required reading and
- practical experience.

Exact locations to be announced later.

Once your application has been accepted, you will be assigned a mentor. These are men and women from the Dunamis Fellowship who have gifts in healing and deliverance ministry. The mentors will review your work and give feedback each month. Meetings with your mentor typically happen at the workshop times in Edmonton and/or North Carolina but these may happen over Zoom.
As part of the course, you will be required to read 8 to 10 books and write brief reflection reports on each book. These books are from a variety of perspectives on healing and deliverance ministry and will be consistent with the PRMI/DFC approach to prayer ministry. Most are required texts, but at least one will be negotiated with the mentor based on your interests and needs.
If accepted, you will develop a project involving healing ministry in your local context. Some examples may be building a healing prayer team for the local congregation or leading ministry at a Dunamis Project event. The project must be approved by your mentor.
You learn to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ ministry of healing and deliverance through practical experience. You are encouraged to be involved in healing and deliverance prayer ministry in your local church context. You are also welcomed to be on ministry teams at PRMI/DFC events in person or online such as the Dunamis Project. This will need to be arranged with the local Dunamis track coordinators.
Generally, applicants must have completed all six units of the Dunamis Project. Some exceptions may be allowed at the discretion of the director.
You must fill out the written application and submit it to the director per the instructions on the applications.
As part of the application, you must include a letter of affirmation from a pastor or other leader. Details are in the application.
You must apply for this course and be accepted. Please note that the Canadian dates are March 18-20, 2021 in the application.
Application deadline for this course is on December 1, 2020.
Costs and Fees
There is no tuition or registration fee for this course.
You will make 2 trips to Edmonton and one trip to North Carolina for workshops and graduation/commissioning.
You are responsible for the costs of
- room and board (see below),
- travel expenses to attend all of the workshops and the commissioning event.
This course is offered on a faith basis. However, there is a high cost to offering this course which covers the expense of development, the cost of materials and the participation of the mentors and teachers. In Canada, we suggest that you raise $3900 to cover room and board and travel as well as to cover the cost of materials and facilitators. Joanne can email you a break down of costs and how much will be used as a donation to DFC. Pray about how to participate long before you arrive.
The hope is to be able to billet participants in Edmonton. Future accommodation in Black Mountain, NC will require self-booking in the area. Check out the PRMI list of lodging options.
