Letter of Introduction to the Ministry
Gethsemane Prayer Ministries is a not-for-profit ministry and a member of the International Society of Deliverance Ministers (ISDM) and American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC). It is our prayer that you will receive everything God intends for you upon seeking inner healing and deliverance. Please know that you are covered in prayer by many prayer warriors to assure safety and progress to freedom.
It is our belief that God is calling all of us to a deeper intimacy with Him. For many of us this means pursuing freedom and healing from yesterday, for today, to the Kingdom work ahead, unencumbered.
You will be given articles to read and CD’s to listen to throughout this process. We encourage you to follow through with these for understanding and teaching. Our hope and prayer is that all will come into the full authority they have in Jesus so the work that is on-going in you can be Holy Spirit led all the days of your life. Each session of ministry is approximately 1½ to 2 hours in duration.
Following this introduction letter is a profile form we ask you to fill out and return to us at least 2 days before your 1st ministry session. This profile form gives you the opportunity to do self-examination as you ask yourself and the Holy Spirit some pointed questions. We understand that you may not be aware of some of your family history but the more information you do have will be beneficial to the ministry time in exploring areas of your life that may be affected because of past generations in your family bloodline. We encourage you, in preparation for ministry, to talk to family members to learn more of your family background.
During the time period you are receiving ministry or after ministry never hesitate to call or email with questions, concerns and even comments on how you are doing. This is not counseling or psychiatry, but a simple Bible based prayer ministry for seekers of freedom and we welcome the blessing of helping you reach your goal of freedom. We strongly encourage you to contact your pastoral covering from your local church and notify them that you are coming for ministry so they can cover you in prayer during this season of ministry.
Please note that all information that you share in this profile form and during the ministry sessions are held in complete confidentiality with the exception of child incest or abuse and when we feel your life is in danger because of suicidal tendencies. Any other areas of your life that we may feel need to be shared with your pastoral covering, spouse or parent (if age appropriate) we will ask your permission first.
As a not-for profit ministry, we do not set a fee for each ministry visit, thus all offerings to the ministry are tax deductible. We do ask that you prayerfully consider making a suggested donation of $75.00 per ministry session. All contributions to this full time ministry are our sole means of support and greatly appreciated. (Checks should be made to Gethsemane Prayer Ministries).
We look forward to the blessing and privilege of serving you. Your freedom in Christ is first and foremost.
In His Service, For His Glory
David and Andrea Vermilya
