Our Training Centers

Restoring the Foundations has five training centers where you may receive accelerated training in a safe environment following a time-proven procedure that allows you to quickly learn the ministerial process while also learning to partner with the Holy Spirit in the ministry room.

At each training center, the core building blocks of the Restoring the Foundations’ revelation are brought together. These are the integrated approach to bring healing to the four sources of our problems.  The training starts with the issue-focused format (a 2-3 hour ministry), in Training Module I, and continues with the thorough format (five 3 hour sessions), in Training Module II.  All training centers provide these first two training modules.  The International Training Center also provides Training Module III, which will prepare you to be a RTF Healing House Network qualified member.  Each training module builds upon the previous to provide you with understanding and activation at each level of training.

Our goal for each training module is for you to have an increasing revelation of the integrated approach to biblical healing, and an increasingly deeper experience of receiving and ministering Father’s healing love to others in any context.

International Training Center

Nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, the International Training Center makes its home in the beautiful Echo Mountain Inn, a turn-of-the-century bed and breakfast.

The International Training Center provides an in-depth structured community experience to equip you in ministering the integrated approach to biblical healing. Setting aside your normal day-to-day activities and living in community changes your perspective and focuses your resolve to go deeper and further than you could alone. Living in community allows you to rely on fellow participants and professional trainers to obtain and practice basic to advanced skills in a safe environment.

At the International Training Center, we offer a sequential modular approach to practical training. Each training module builds upon the previous to provide you with the understanding and activation to bring healing to your own life, and the lives of others, in many contexts.

Regional Training Centers

Restoring the Foundations currently has four regional training centers. Feel free to visit their websites through the links below, or contact us at Restoring the Foundations if you have any questions.

Training Module I

Training Module I is an in-depth three week introduction to the integrated approach to biblical healing coupled with practical, hands-on training to minister the Issue-Focused Format ministry.  The first week is taken via the internet, by streaming the fifteen hour Healing and Deliverance Course (You may also attend a ‘live’ Healing and Deliverance Seminar to accomplish this first week of Training Module I.)  Also as part of the first week you will listen to the Essential Teachings audio messages, either via download or CD. The second and third week are attended at one of the training centers, where you are able to quickly learn how to minister under the care of experienced RTF trainers, as well as receive your own healing.

Training Module I is recommended for all believers who minister to or pray for others in the home, in the church (especially small group or cell group leaders), as well as those called as Restoring the Foundations thorough-format ministers. You will leave this training module knowing that you CAN be an instrument “useful to the Master’s hand” (2 Tim 2:21) and that the Holy Spirit WILL come and bring the healing.

Experienced Restoring the Foundations Healing House Network trainers will oversee the small group activations. (Ratio: 1 small group leader for every 3-6 trainees.)

Prerequisites

  • Completion an application form (available in the Resources Section).

Training Module II

Training Module II is a five week intensive and hands-on apprenticeship ministry experience. It builds upon Module I and takes you to the next level, preparing you to lead the Restoring the Foundations thorough-format ministry at the church level. Training Module II is a prerequisite for those desiring to minister at the RTF Healing House Network level.

During your training, you will actively observe an experienced Restoring the Foundations Healing House Network team minister the thorough-format to an individual.  During the Observation Step*, you will also participate in numerous discussions and activations to prepare you to lead RTF Thorough Format ministry. You, with your team partner, will minister to one of the other teams attending Module II. In addition to leading a ministry week, you will also experience (as a couple or as an individual) 15 hours of Thorough-Format ministry from another training team.

Experienced Restoring the Foundations Healing House Network trainers oversee the thorough-format ministry observation and activations. (Ratio: 1 Trainer for every 2 trainees.)

* (Please note that the first phase of Training Module II, the Observation Step, may be taken as an online streaming video course.)

  • Recommendation by one other person who is not a family member.
  • Willingness to participate in community service (to help reduce lodging and meals expense).

Training Module III

Training Module III is a twelve-week intensive and hands-on apprenticeship ministry experience. It builds upon Modules I and II and prepares you to qualify as a RTF Healing House Network member.

Module III is recommended for those who desire to minister to the Body of Christ at-large. Whether you are called to be a full-time Restoring the Foundations minister or, Restoring the Foundations will be one facet of your ministry, this module will position you to be more effective in bringing God’s healing throughout the Church.

Module III is delivered through two parallel, alternating activities. In the first activity, you will have direct, beneficial interaction with Healing House Network Trainers (as your mentors), as well as classroom and individual study. In the second activity, you and your team partner will minister the Restoring the Foundations Thorough-Format to five couples (or if a men’s/women’s team, to 10 men/women). You will minister as an apprenticeship team under the direct supervision of a Healing House Network Trainer.

You will experience three different phases in Module III:

  • Phase 1 is a one-half week orientation including instruction and assignments.
  • Phase 2 is a ten-week period of alternating weeks for mentoring and classroom work followed by a hands-on supervised ministering apprenticeship.
  • Phase 3 is the Qualifying Week, the last week of the twelve week long module. You will be evaluated and qualified as you demonstrate your readiness and ability to function as a Restoring the Foundations Healing House Network team member.

Contents
