Healing Prayer Conferences

The Healing Academy has a tradition of providing training conferences in healing ministry. In the past, these have been open to students, staff, faculty and guests and have included speakers such as Francis and Judith MacNutt and Larry and Audrey Eddings.

In February, 2014, the Healing Academy celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a conference at the Winshape Retreat Center in Rome, Georgia. The conference was made available for no cost to members of the Healing Academy and their spouses.

In March 2014, the Healing Academy sponsored a Florida/ExL conference that was streamed online from the Florida Dunnam campus and provided an overview to ExL students with an interest in applying to the Healing Academy.
