The church needs to be ready to meet the need.
- Leading people out of the occult and witchcraft

Be Equipped– In the past couple of years, Indiana Weslyan University did a poll of its alumni asking what was one thing they wished they learned at a Christian college, that would benefit their ministries. The one area that got the most agreement was spiritual warfare training. This caused the University to recently include a required class for all students on the topic. At our conference we will be teaching a “nuts” and “bolts” straightforward and practical application of how to personally overcome strongholds. You will also learn to minister to other people with spiritual warfare and spiritual counseling using the truth and power we have in Jesus Christ.

Setting Captives Free
Recently, the state of Virginia suspended the acceptance of patients for mental health issues into 5 of its 8 major mental health hospital systems, due to understaffing. The demand for hope in crisis is rising, yet many pastors and lay leaders are unprepared for how to deal with the complex issues facing the average church family.
How do we practically and powerfully use the truths of the gospel to minister to broken people? How do we know the difference between a demonic harassment and a sin or emotional issue? How do we help people with addictions, anxiety and identity confusion? When discussing the need for pastors and spiritual leaders to be trained to help people in crisis, Briana was told, “The most helpful thing a pastor can be taught is to refer to a professional for counseling.” She quickly replied, “The people who are coming to us for help have been to professionals. They have been medicated and have spent thousands of dollars, yet the professionals can’t help them. However they are getting set free and delivered through simple biblical truths that are applied in the power and love of Jesus Christ.”
