Frequently Asked Questions About Group Ministry PDF Print E-mail

How did each ministry team of two learn how to provide this ministry?

Each qualified ministry team was trained and released by Restoring The Foundations International. During ministry, your group will typically address an issue the entire group is struggling with. For that issue, the four problem areas will be addressed. They are:

1) the breaking of your specific generational curses; this is the historical part of your group.

2) identifying the ungodly things your group believes, which most Christians don’t know what they believe. It usually takes an objective ministry team to present on paper what you believe based on your specific life’s circumstances.

3) the healing of hurts to your soul and spirit; and,

4) deliverance from demonic oppression, which is a calm process.

Each of the four areas are integrated or work together to hold the other one in place to keep your group in bondage. This means that if you only address one area, the enemy will use the other areas not addressed to keep your issue secured in your life.

Who will see my group's confidential ministry information?

The ministry team who’ll provide your group ministry will know the confidential specific to your group's issue. Intercessors and a spiritual oversight team will be in prayer regarding this specific group issue. You normally will not see or interact with the intercessors and spiritual oversight team. Honoring your group's confidentiality is priority and we hold this privilege as sacred before the Holy Spirit.

Who will provide my group ministry?

A ministry team will provide your group ministry; the ministry team size will vary according to the size of the group. They both have been trained by Restoring The Foundations International and have stringent requirements.

How do I know when to come to integrated healing & deliverance ministry?

Groups normally come for healing and deliverance ministry in one of four ways.

1 | You are sick, tired, and exhausted from dealing with yourself and/or those in your life.
2 | The Holy Spirit directs you to come.
3 | You see the positive life change of a person who’s come for ministry, so you want to experience the same for your life.
4 | Your church, ministry or company requires ministry as part of your employment or leadership responsibilities.

What will others say about me?

Others will say more, less or nothing about you. Your focus should center on experiencing the abundant life you are entitled to. Your ministry is private and confidential. The only people who will know are those you share it with. A better question to ask is -- what will you say when you begin to experience a positive, lasting life change.

How does the group deal with the shame issues in preparing for ministry?

Ask the Holy Spirit to give your group the endurance to complete your ministry process. Know that even though there is temporary shame, each of us has experienced shame and we have over come it. Some of us are overcoming shame, but the beauty is there is movement, there is a positive progression and you can be among those who can live without the shame. Remember, there’s nothing created, nothing that’s been made or nothing that you’ve experience is greater than the all-powerful changing ability of the Holy Spirit.

How honest can I be even as a Christian?

In the confidential ministry room, you are free to express yourself. Yes, even as a Christian. The qualified ministry team is there to make certain the environment is comfortable and safe for you. This ministry time is set aside for your group explicitly.

What actually happens during the ministry time?

At the beginning of each ministry session, your group's ministry team will share what will be covered. There will be brief stints to teaching so you’ll understand the process. Each ministry session is covered in prayer. The majority of the ministry time is dedicated to focusing completely on you and what the Holy Spirit is saying and doing.

Is the deliverance part of the ministry similar to what’s typically shown on television?

Typically on television, you see an altar call with people lined up or assembled around the altar. Sometimes you see the laying on of hands. Sometimes you see people outstretched on the floor. Sometimes on television you see people speaking with varying degrees of volume in their voices. Sometimes on television, in a church or conference setting, you’ve seen cheering or outbursts of emotions.

The deliverance or demonic oppression portion of the healing and deliverance ministry is normally a quiet experience. There’s nothing to be afraid of. Remember, you have a qualified healing and deliverance ministers in the room with you at all times. You will be in a safe place and a safe environment.

What if the Holy Spirit doesn’t come through for me; I’ve tried so many things?

As humans we’re full of limitations. The Holy Spirit has no limitations. It’s important that you prepare for ministry. It‘s important you consecrate this time set aside for ministry. It is important that you be as honest and transparent as possible. The Holy Spirit never gives up on you.

How is integrated healing and deliverance different from other ministry approaches?

Your qualified ministry team is interested in your group, your group’s story, we are there to listen to you. We co-labor with you and the Holy Spirit to identify the roots of your group’s issues. We understand that once the roots are identified, dismantled and destroyed, the regular symptoms that have bothered your group for so long are forced to die. Through the revelation of the Holy Spirit, it has been learned that there are four key problem areas that must be addressed to destroy the roots of the issue once identified.

What if I go through integrated healing and deliverance ministry and nothing really happens?

The Holy Spirit is the healer and deliverer. The certified ministry team is a tool used by the Holy Spirit. The more you actively participate in your ministry process, the better the experience will be. The Holy Spirit knows exactly how much you can handle in one ministry session. If you can handle a lot, you’ll receive a lot. If you can handle a little, the Holy Spirit will administer a little.

Am I the only person with this issue; I’m so ashamed?

No, you are not the only person with your issue. We are not able to share the contents of other confidential applications, but there has been no new issue that the Holy Spirit has not been prepared for. The reality about shame is it’s only temporary. The fact that you’re reading these words gives notice that the benediction is being prepared for the shame in your life. It’s on its way out!

What if I need more help after the ministry sessions are complete

Your certified ministry team will have talked and prayed with you and for your for weeks. Your ministry team will have also received insight from the Holy Spirit regarding you. Your ministry team could also receive words of knowledge and words of wisdom from the intercessors and/or spiritual oversight team regarding you. Together, you and the team will work to identify if additional resources are needed at the conclusion of ministry. The ministry team will identify and recommend safe, biblical resources for you.

Do the certified people who provide my ministry have problems

It would be something if you could see the initial applications your qualified ministry team completed when they came for their first of several ministry sessions. Your ministry team has been exactly where you are. They have compassion and understand better than you could ever imagine. One truth your certified ministry team knows is, healing is a continuous process, which they are actively engaged in them self.

Can I receive confidential ministry with a friend or a family member?

Christian married couples can receive ministry together. All other Christians receive confidential healing and deliverance ministry alone. Yes, there are spouses who come alone for ministry. Yes, there are young children, older children and adult children who come for ministry. No, the parent is not be in the ministry room during the child’s confidential ministry session.

The child is provided privacy. Yes, some parents and children come for ministry at the same time, even though they are in different ministry rooms with different ministry teams. We encourage parents and children to not come at the same time. Why? Because the parent is usually so concerned about their child, regardless of their child’s age, that they cannot concentrate on their own ministry.

What healing and deliverance is not?

Ministry is not counseling.
Ministry is not therapy.
