We would like to say thank you to those ministries that have impacted our lives and the lives of those to whom we have ministered. We gratefully acknowledge…
♦ The late John and Paula Sandford, founders of Elijah House Ministries, and the counselors and staff who have ministered with them. They were instrumental in bringing us to a place of healing.
♦ Pastor Ted Roberts of Pure Desire, who chose to take the lid off the influence of pornography in the church. His desire to see believers freed from bondage allowed us to discover the amount of quality resources available to effectively address this multi-faceted issue.
♦ The late Dr. Tom Hawkins and his wife, Diane of Restoration in Christ Ministries; without their teaching, godly example and personal friendship, I (Wayne) would not have ventured into ministering to Dissociative* clients who have been ritually abused. (*Dissociative Identity Disorder, often referred to as DID or DID/RA).
♦ Sandra Skinner-Young of A.C.A.C.I.A. Ministries with whom I (Wayne) interned, who recognized God’s calling upon me to work with Dissociative (DID) and Ritually Abused (DID/RA) clients.
♦ The late Leanne Payne, founder of Pastoral Care Ministries helped us to find our place in effective prayer ministry for others and the sexually broken.
♦ Father Andrew Miller, founder of HeartSync Ministries in Tallahassee, Florida. He has been instrumental in giving greater insights to working with brokenness on all levels of people’s lives.
♦ Art Zeilstra, founder of the former Cornerstone Counseling Centre in Canada, who also took an interest in how God was bringing me (Wayne) to a place of ministering to hurting people.
♦ Paul Cox of Aslan’s Place; his ministry resulted in our understanding the depths of generational sin and the necessity of correctly discerning the spirit realm. aslansplace.com
♦ Arthur Burk of Sapphire Leadership Group, who has searched and shared the depths of God’s Word and thereby has been instrumental in re-digging the wells of understanding God’s heart through his spiritual think-tank approach. theslg.com
♦ Ed Corley of Berean Gospel Fellowship, Inc. for his revelatory unfolding of Scripture and preparing Believers to stand firm in love of the truth in these last days as we eagerly await the Parousia (return) of Christ.
♦ The late Wade Taylor of Wade Taylor Ministries – his father’s heart and desire to see the written Word become the experiential Word of personal reality profoundly impacted our walk with the Lord. His daughter, Nancy Taylor Tate, continues a growing legacy through her present ministry. I (Nancy) am eternally grateful, as one of his spiritual offspring, for Wade’s spiritual fathering.
Lastly, we extend a special blessing to Pastors Ron and Jan Torres of Yakima Christian Center in Yakima, Washington. Their pastoral ministry and intercessory support has often challenged and encouraged us to fulfill the call of God on our lives.
