Healing Teams

            The training and formation of members of healing teams is critical to the success of ministries of healing.  Our programs emphasize a thorough knowledge of the theological foundations of healing in Scripture and Christian Tradition combined with practical, experiential learning.  Our formation strategies address both the hearts and the minds of participants.  Ongoing spiritual formation and supervision of all healing team members are normative.


            Episcopal Healing Ministries provides support and consultation for clergy desiring to establish and/or maintain ministries of healing.   Delineating clear and concise guidelines for the practice of the healing ministry is essential for maintaining the highest standards in ethics and pastoral ministry.


Medical & Professional Healthcare Personnel

            Episcopal Healing Ministries teach that for an individual to reach optimal wholeness and health, one’s body, mind, emotions, spirit, and relationships need to be in balance and harmony with one another.  Our staff will work with doctors and healthcare professionals to provide a holistic approach to their medical practices.
