CBC's Healing School in Minneapolis

Charis Bible College in Colorado Springs recently sent a team from its Healing School program to minister in Minneapolis. This is the second time, since the Healing School opened its doors two years ago, that they sent a group on the road. Last December, a team including the school's Director, Daniel Amstutz, and his assistant, Carlie Terradez, visited Kansas City and they saw great results. This trip to Minnesota yielded Part of the team that traveled from CBC-Colorado to Minneapolis.

a similar outcome; many lives were changed as Daniel, Carlie and students from CBC-Colorado and CBC-Minneapolis shared the love of God with the people of Minnesota.

Having flown in Thursday, June 13, one day ahead of the Healing School event, Daniel and Carlie had the opportunity to teach at CBC-Minneapolis. Although the school was not officially in session, 40 students attended the pre-meeting gathering.

Friday's schedule was packed with activity as the rest of the team arrived from Colorado. After getting organized, the group held a late-afternoon AWM Partner's meeting, and then the evening The evening began before the actual start time as people arrived before the worship team's sound check.

kicked off with a time of praise and worship. There was a tremendous sense of expectancy as people began crowding into the venue an hour before the meeting was scheduled to begin. Those arriving early began worshiping during the praise & worship team's sound check, and the team actually began the evening's meeting early to accommodate the interested and expectant audience.

By 7 p.m. the hotel venue, set to seat 450 people, was packed to capacity. The team could not squeeze another chair in anywhere. "Thankfully, the hotel removed the air wall at the back of the room so that we could expand," said Carlie. In the end, 636 people were in attendance, some traveling from 500 miles away to participate.Hotel staff opened up banquet room dividing walls to accommodate the crowd as the number of attendees swelled to 636—almost 200 more than expected.

After a time of ministry, which included teaching and the sharing of testimonies from weekly Healing School meetings held in Colorado Springs, people were ready to receive what the Lord has provided. Among the first of the lives to be changed was a man several CBC-students encountered in the hotel bar. After chatting with the man, the students invited him to the meeting. The man attended, and he was the first to run to the front of the room, answering the altar call for Salvation.

When the invitation was given, the majority of the crowd, some 500 people, moved forward to receive prayer for healing. Individual ministry lasted well into the night, and many miracles manifested as the ministers prayed. While the list of blessed results is too long to Carlie Terradez (left) and another person (right) from the Healing School minister healing to a woman.

share in full, there were a number of unique and notable healings recorded.

A woman, who came to the meeting with her arm in a sling because of a painful shoulder condition, moved forward for prayer; her knuckles were swollen and pale. As the minister prayed, they both watched the swelling go down. After prayer, the woman removed the sling, and her arm and shoulder were completely healed and pain-free.

A man with leg pain and flat feet approached the prayer team. As he stood receiving prayer, God created arches in his feet and his leg pain immediately ceased. The man left jumping and leaping and praising God!

Throughout the night, as people received instant manifestations of healing, some voluntarily shared their testimonies from the platform. Each time someone told their story, it provided a Daniel Amstutz, Director of CBC-Colorado's Healing School, giving an altar call. One estimate reported that 500 people received individual ministry.

The mother had no sense of smell, and the daughter struggled with scoliosis and pain in her lower back. The mother walked away delighted to be able to smell and breathe through her nose, and the daughter walked away free from pain and with a completely straight spine.

Many, many more have stories of God's amazing love and restoration as a result of the team's time in Minnesota. The next Healing School on the Road will be held in San Jose, CA on August 9, 2013. Visit CBC-Colorado for more information.

(Click to enlarge)In previous posts we have brought you news and testimonies from Charis Bible College's School of Healing in Colorado Springs. The school, directed by Daniel Amstutz, has seen some wonderful fruit since it opened its doors in March of 2011. Last month, several staff members and a 14 member team of students, took the School of Healing on the road for the first time. The team traveled from Colorado to minister at CBC-Kansas City's opening rally.

According to healing school staff member, Carlie Terradez, Daniel's assistant, it was Andrew's idea to send the team; his rigorous schedule prevented him being able to participate in the school's November opening. Although he could not be there, he wanted to give the new directors, Mark and Charla Eastwood, a boost and help promote the new Early in the Praise and Worship service.

More than 400 people attended the meeting, and by the end of the event, the venue was standing room only. A majority of the crowd came forward for prayer during the evening, and the students, both from Colorado and CBC-KC, let the love of God flow and attendees were not disappointed.

Signs and wonders followed a time of worship and prayer, and according to one staff member, the team saw so many miracles it was hard to keep track of them all. Highlights from the evening included the double healing of an elderly couple; both received renewal for their aged bodies. The woman's eyes were healed from blindness, and her husband's hearing was restored.As the evening progressed people continued to show up.. CBC students continued bringing chairs in until it became staning room only.

One man came to the healing school event with a thyroid tumor. It was reported that the mass was noticeably swollen and blue, and was protruding from his neck. The man indicated that the tumor was damaging his vocal chords and hindering his voice. As the minister prayed the lump went away, the man's skin became a healthy flesh color and his voice returned to normal. Praise God!

With the success of the meeting in the Kansas City area, there are plans for the school to go on the road again in the future. Keep an eye on the CBC-Colorado website for upcoming meetings in your area.

CBC's School of Healing Seeing Fruit

Andrew ministers to a visitor at CBC's School of Healing during the first anniversary of the school's opening. (Click to enlarge)Earlier this year we posted a story about Charis Bible College's School of Healing. Since the time of that article, the weekly program, which trains and equips students in all things related to healing, has continued to grow and has brought forth tangible manifestations God's will to heal.

Over the past year, the staff at the School of Healing has trained more than 300 prayer ministers. To become part of the prayer ministry team, each person is required to attend weekly training sessions. These multi-faceted sessions include an eight hour course during which students learn not only how to minister healing, but about how to receive healing. Throughout the CBC staff member Carlie Terradez (SA) and Director, Daniel Amstutz keep things fun. (Click to enlarge) training, staff members monitor each student's academic work, and they also evaluate the character of each participant. It is only after the staff feels the student is comfortable and confident that they will recommend the student be allowed to minister one-on-one. The process produces effective ministers, bold in faith and confident in the Word of God, and as a result the prayer ministry teams see many miracles each week.

One example of the tangible fruit being produced at the school can be found in the story of one woman's healing. The woman's Nadine (white pants) lays hands on Jamie, and heat begins to flow.

name is Jamie, and she visited one Thursday seeking relief from multiple issues stemming from several past accidents. She suffered from the after effects of a concussion, including difficulty reading; she also had pain in her back and jaw, and her right arm was cold and numb. Her minister, Nadine, listened carefully to what Jamie said, and then began to address the issues. First Nadine ministered the baptism in the Holy Spirit, which Jamie gladly received with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Then, the Lord showed Nadine that Jamie was suffering with condemnation as a result of her multiple accidents. Nadine shared scripture with her to free her from the condemnation (Romans 8:1), and as Nadine spoke she saw Jamie relax. Finally, Nadine, Jamie, after receiving her healing, holds up her testimony report. (Click to enlarge)led by the Lord put just her fingers on Jamie's neck, and she spoke to her body. Both Jamie and Nadine felt heat in the area Nadine's fingers touched. Jamie noticed a change in her body right away. She said, "I felt my arm warm up, numbness go away, and my body started getting warm—feeling good—now I am healed!" Nadine's ministry report about her time with Jamie reads, "No numbness, no pain, she could read, and she was feeling relaxed—Hallelujah!"

"God is blessing, we are growing, and people are sharing every week about how blessed they are to be a part of it! We are not only receiving practical teaching on various topics related to healing, but we are seeing the students growing in confidence as they minister the laying on of hands on a weekly basis," said Director, Daniel Amstutz.

Retired Air Force pilot, Glen came to receive healing for his foot. Prayer ministers addressed his issue, and spoke healing from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet. The foot is getting better, but since the prayer his vision (top of his head) has cleared to 20/15 (better than he's ever had) and all signs of Diabetes have left his body (working down toward his feet)! Glen believes he is completely healed. (Click to enlarge)Staff member, Carlie Terradez said, "Due to the large number of students who want to help, we have prayer ministry teams and they each serve on a four-week rotation." She went on to say that many prayer ministers come each week, whether serving or not, just to take part.

The School of Healing averages between 60 and 70 outside visitors and 10-15 new people each week. Many of the new faces come from out of state or abroad; one family traveled from the UK just to attend. "Healing and miracles are happening, and the word is getting out. We have people who have come here for the Healing School, who are now enrolled in the college as a result. We have people coming from all over to have someone that really believes the Word of God minister to them, instead of what has become the accepted norm in many places of mostly unbelief with a bit of faith mixed in," said Daniel.

The school, which is free to all and open to the public, meets weekly on Thursday afternoons from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. in the CBC campus auditorium on Elkton Drive. Each session opens with a time of worship, then testimonies of God's goodness are shared, followed by teaching. The program culminates with a team of students ministering healing to whoever comes forward to receive.LaDawn, was paralyzed when she came for prayer. Here, with the help of her husband, she stands.

"Learning to walk in health is a big topic, especially in our culture today with all of the issues of medical care. We are being bombarded with all of the prescriptions that we just have to have to live a productive life, and people are really growing tired of it. They are realizing that just maybe God’s Word really did mean life more abundantly," said Daniel enthusiastically.
