About Us

Bill Dasch Ministries, Inc. is a Christian not-for-profit 501(c)3 ministry, that prays for healing and empowers others to pray for healing. We have a passion for laying on of hands and praying for people with serious afflictions in body, mind, or spirit in the name of Jesus. Our founder Rev. Dr. Bill Dasch Ed. D., M. Div., L.P.C. served in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod for 42 years. He retired so that he can devote full time to praying and teaching others to pray for healing.

Our Vision

To see the healing ministry of Jesus Reclaimed, Restored and Released in every church, home and individual.  We see a time when praying for healing is a normal part of church ministry.  We dream of families laying hands on each other and praying for healing.

We see healing the sick as an ordinary part of our lives.  We dream of raising up people and churches who will walk in God’s healing power and take healing to the world as He furthers His Kingdom.


Our Mission

To pray for healing and to teach others to pray for healing. 

We do this through conferences, church events, personal encounters and by providing resources for praying for healing.

Our Founder

“All people can pray for healing because it is God who heals!”
— Rev.Dr.Bill Dasch – M.Div., Ed.D., L.P.C.

With those words, Dr. Bill Dasch challenges people today to lay hands on the sick and pray for healing. He personally has seen God heal heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, cancer, constant pain, life-threatening blood clots, headaches, tumors, fevers, and much more. A cutting edge leader in healing prayer ministry, Bill Dasch never promises healing but seeks the Healer, Jesus Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit. He introduced healing prayer to St. Mark Lutheran Church, Houston, Texas, a large church in 1993. In three years, St. Mark became a church of prayer. He moved to St. John Lutheran Church, Mansfield, Texas in 2004. God has been doing great things there through the ministry of prayer. His entire staff was trained and prays for any who need prayer. Bill transitioned to full time prayer ministry in August, 2015.

When once asked about upcoming workshops for pastors and lay people, Bill stated, “I am amazed at what God does through ordinary people. I pray that people will experience the extraordinary and realize God may have meant this to be the ordinary. These workshops are meant to help people recover the healing ministry of Jesus Christ in light of our understanding of the Holy Scriptures. Come and be amazed!”
