The Elijah House School of Heart Healing exposes one to a type of biblical counseling that is pastoral in nature. THe basic 201 class lays the foundations for healing and transformation, both for the students themselves and for equipping the saints for inner healing and the work of binding up broken hearts (Isaiah 61:1).
We teach foundational principles and tools for dealing with personal and interpersonal issues. Students learn to trace bad fruit to bitter roots formed in the heart (Hebrews 12:15), most often in childhood. They learn how to cut off bitter roots at the cross and bring repentance and inner healing to the heart. Transformation is the goal of this work — to raise up healthy Christians in their own communities.
School lessons include core Elijah House teachings that help us understand how bitter roots are formed and how broken hearts can be healed through the biblical process of repentance and forgiveness. Tools of prayer ministry are taught in this series of lessons, as well as conditions that influence how best to minister.
This is a 27-week video-facilitated school. There is some recommended reading prior to and during school. The first book required is Transforming the Inner Man by John Sandford.
