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