Issue-Focused Ministry Training 

We are a partner ministry of Restoring the Foundations (RTF). Activation for Issue-Focused Ministry is a requirement to be certified by RTF.

Here’s why: 

  • We want to make sure you’re equipped with all the tools you need, and
  • We want to serve our clients at the highest level possible, insuring they have every opportunity to encounter the presence and power of God during their session(s).
