Jeff Thomas, Care Minster
Through the power of the Holy Spirit, God developed a prayer ministry in Jeff through practical application and life experiences for more than 35 years. I believe that prayer through the power of God’s word can change and transform a life when God’s requirements of forgiveness, repentance, renunciation of ancestral sins, pulling down strongholds through spiritual warfare and renewing the mind with the word of God are appropriated and applied by faith in the finished work of the cross. We then can experience true freedom from “the sins that so easily ensnares us”. We have seen countless people set free from all sorts of bondages when these requirements are met. Fee: Free will offering
