We live in a world
where nearly everyone is suffering from some kind of sickness or pain. As a follower of Jesus Christ, you have been commissioned to step forward and do something about it! Demonstrate the love and power of God by healing the sick wherever you go.
Jesus healed all who came to Him, and He commissioned His disciples to declare that the Kingdom of heaven was at hand as they healed the sick, raised the dead and cast out demons.
His final words before He ascended back to the Father assured us that we would lay hands on the sick and they would recover.
And to the believers at Corinth, the Holy Spirit declared through the apostle Paul that He had appointed gifts of healings in the Church.
As believers in Jesus Christ, we have been called and anointed to demonstrate the love and compassion of God by bringing healing and restoration to the sick.
When the disciples on the road to Emmaus heard what Jesus had to say, they exclaimed, “Were not our hearts burning within us while He was … explaining the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:32).
It is important to have a solid biblical foundation upon which you can step out in faith, so you will thoroughly investigate what the Scriptures say and develop your own personal theology about divine healing.
You will explore principles that can increase the effectiveness of your prayers for healing as well as the natural “gifts of healings” and principles for living in divine health that are revealed and compatible with Scripture.
Does your heart long to see those who are sick and in pain touched by the miracle-working power of a loving God? Are you skilled in the use of all the tools the Lord has given to His people to bring healing and health?
This series of courses will build your faith, your knowledge and your skill set, making you a more effective minister of God’s healing grace.
Through this teaching, I have learned my place in His body is just as vital to His ministry as those who are high-profile figures in the community church as well as the corporate Church. I never thought of myself to be of much importance in church. I really felt like I was insignificant, but I had a heart to pray and see people healed and delivered. I also loved to encourage the broken-hearted.
Then one day while I was crying out to God to use me for His kingdom, I felt both of my hands become electrified. Some of my fingers began to twitch! This went on for several minutes, and the more I cried out to Him and spoke in tongues, the more my hands increased in this electricity. I didn’t know what was happening to me;I had never felt anything like it before. I thought I was having a stroke or mild heart attack, but I was not in pain at all.
I kept this experience to myself for several weeks, but began to notice that whenI laid my hands on someone and prayed for healing, the electricity would return and flow out of my hands and into the person. The person would be healed!
Every time this happens, I feel humbled and honored that God would choose to use a simple person in church to do His great and mighty works. I have come to realize that I am a precious and wanted child of God, and it was God who gave me the desire to lay hands on the sick, hurting, and oppressed and see them healed and delivered in Jesus’ name.

Communion With God - REN103/503
Have you ever wished you could sit down and have a long talk with the Lord? When you’re worried or confused, wouldn’t you love to see the situation from His perspective and hear how He wants you to respond? When things don’t seem to be going your way and your prayers aren’t answered the way you had hoped, wouldn’t it be great to hear Him tell you where He is in the midst of it, and what He is working out in your life?
Jesus promised that “My sheep hear My voice” (Jn. 10:27). If you are one of His sheep, then He is speaking to you and you are hearing His voice! The problem is that we have not learned how to recognize His voice and differentiate it from all of the other voices that bombard our hearts and minds. This course will help you discern the voice of the Lord within your heart, clearly and consistently, leading to a deeper intimacy with Him as well as greater faith, hope and joy. Your life will be transformed! (3 credits for REN103; 4 credits for REN503) (Course syllabus: REN103; REN503)
Take Charge of Your Health - HEA102
We have a covenant of health with our God, which is based on four prerequisites (Ex. 15:26). One of these is to keep all His statutes. In this course, we will learn the statutes of God which will keep us from cancer and the other “Black Plagues” of our century. We need not die prematurely if we become responsible by keeping God’s simple health commands. (3 credits) Course Syllabus
“Take Charge of Your Health” taught me that sickness may strike a variety of places in our lives, which affects the whole person. We must heal the spirit’s illness caused by sin. We must experience “inner healing,” which is the healing of hurtful memories and damaged emotions. The effects from harmful memories may consist of guilt, shame, and depression. This is why we need to repent, ask God for forgiveness, and go through deliverance of demonic strongholds.I believe that most mental illness is frequently misdiagnosed; and is, in many cases, demonization, the influence of demonic activity. Some people become so saturated with sin and invading spirits, that they no longer have control over who and what they are.
We all must remember that the body houses the spirit and soul within us and we must properly maintain all three. Don’t you think you should be responsible for your health? The CLU course “Take Charge of Your Health” will help you do that.

“The thing I liked most about the course was: The depth of the information provided by A.L. Gill in his books and CDs. I was not aware of the authority I was given by Jesus and have been greatly impacted in many area of my personal and spiritual life. I have seen my relationship with my husband increase in trust and love and a peacefulness installed with my family. I am taking steps to deepen my understanding of heart issues as per James 1:14-15 and have increased my praise to God.” –student taking Authority of the Believer

Healing Anointing - REN207
The ministry of Jesus was and is a ministry of salvation for the whole man! When we speak of salvation, we speak not only of forgiveness of sins but also healing, deliverance, cleansing and everything else that pertains to life and godliness. Jesus has come to set the captives free! And because He has poured out His Spirit upon us, we may be ministers of salvation – healing for the spirit, soul and body – through the anointing that rests upon us. This practical course will give you keys to flowing in that anointing of God, lessons which have been learned by those who have gone before you and are now showing you the way.

(4 credits) Course Syllabus
“Who needs prayers that heal the heart? Just about everyone! God has really done a work in me through the studying and revelation of this ministry. He has given me a burden and a heart to see all people set free from all kinds of oppression. After all, He did command us to do so and minister to people’s needs. Prayers That Heal the Heart is going to be a major part of what I do vocationally for the rest of my life. I have a burden and a desire to see people walk in the liberty purchased for them on Calvary, and for them to experience the ZOE life God has come to give us. Thank You, Lord, for Your anointing to do what You did and see people come into all that You have for them.” — Student taking Prayers That Heal the Heart
I heartily recommend Prayers That Heal the Heart. It is the most biblical book I have read on counseling and spiritual warfare, in terms of emotional healing. While there are other good books out there that God has used, red flags have always gone up in my mind by their use of methods borrowed by modern psychology. This book isn’t like that, and it is thoroughly practical with its exercises and worksheets. It can definitely be used by the Lord to change your life and break the enemy’s power in your life. — Brian Shilhavy
Dr. Mark, thank you for your obedience and dedication to God’s will to bring this powerful and life-changing message of freedom, healing and a genuine relationship with God to us. Through the books in the course Prayers That Heal the Heart, God, our loving and caring Father, found a way in starting His healing ministry to me. I wanted a Ph.D. and now I get what I really needed: A life united with Christ! — Hermanus, South Africa

The Power of Kingdom Emotions – Unleashing Healing Power Through Spirit Born Emotions - HEA302
The focus of this course is that our heart (emotions) must be in alignment with our mind (belief) in order to experience a miracle of divine healing. If our mind says, “I believe,” and our heart feels, “This is not going to happen,” the power of God is short-circuited. Visionary meditations are included to lead people into their own personal encounters with Jesus, allowing them to feel His emotions of love, joy and peace for themselves, thereby turning on healthy genes and unleashing healing power throughout their body.
