Healing Hearts History

Vision comes from the heart of God and is focused at Man. Healing Hearts Ministries Inc. began as a result of seeds that were planted at a Rising Above seminar. A vision began to form for a place where people could come with all their wounds, pains, and failures and bring them to the foot of the cross in a safe, loving, and nonjudgmental environment; literally, a spiritual hospital. The thoughts and ideas started to come together and as the vision was shared it ministered to the hearts of those who heard it.

The vision of a spiritual hospital was real but there was no idea of what it would look like. Would it be a counseling centre, a support group, a twelve-step program, or would it look like a church? It was during a time of sharing this vision over a cup of coffee, sitting at a picnic table, that the vision became a reality. Why couldn't we have church around tables over a cup of coffee and spend a special time each week where we could bring all of who we are before the throne of God?

Sunday, September 4, 1994, was the start of the new concept ministry; following this vision would be an exercise in obedience.

Healing Hearts Ministries Inc. has continued to grow and evolve. What started as a few people sitting around a table with a cup of coffee sharing all their pain and bringing one another before the throne of God has developed into a vibrant local church with many missionaries and an ever increasing influence in the community we minister to.

Healing Hearts Ministries Inc. has also changed from being just a local church to a mission organization that empowers, equips, and energizes people for the work of ministry at various locations across western Canada.

As this vision has grown, we have seen a number of churches planted and other churches encouraged by the vision started by such a small seed many years ago. The vision to see a spiritual hospital has never left but is now being fulfilled by our ever growing team. Together we strive to “Bring the Healing Touch of Jesus to Wounded Hearts.”
