“Blessing Point Ministries has been entrusted with a unique and valuable treasure. The principles of corporate repentance and healing have important implications for the revitalized health of the American Church and beyond. If, in these difficult days for the Church, we were to see the renewed radiance of Christ’s Bride, the increase of souls to the Kingdom would be significant.

“As part of a congregation that experienced Blessing Point’s ministry firsthand, I can attest to the spiritual renewal that comes with corporate healing. I’m thankful that God chose our small church as the launching pad for this tremendous ministry. God used Blessing Point Ministries to allow us to clearly see and repent from decades old sins that stifled our ministry. Through Blessing Point God changed our inward focus to an outward one – allowing us to serve the Kingdom in the community in which we live. I’m part of this ministry because I long to see the same transformation multiplied in churches throughout the nation.”

“I’ve experienced my share of pain in pastoral ministry. Having been a pastor for twenty-three years, many of them in a church under God’s discipline for the failure of leadership years before I got there, I now realize how important it is to rightly assess a local church’s history-and what Christ is saying to that church-if a pastor seeks God’s best for his people. That’s why I am so excited to be a part of Blessing Point. We’ve watched God restore and heal churches which were in indescribable pain and causing pain to their pastors and lay leaders. It is a privilege beyond words to play a part in what God is doing to restore the radiance of His Bride.”

“I experienced the ‘Healing the Heart of Your Church’ process of Blessing Point Ministries while serving as an elder in our church. This provided a ‘next level up’ understanding of the church as a corporate body. God is often limited in using us as individuals when we are lacking in our personal spiritual fitness. He has the same limitations with a church when its corporate spiritual fitness is lacking. Blessing Point Ministries provided the avenue for our congregation to deal with and correct our corporate spiritual fitness. I desire for Blessing Point Ministries to reach as many churches as possible with this process. I am excited for God to use me in this ministry to help accomplish its goals.”
