About

mike-P1020072-txt-300The Church has a mission. In fact it has a mandate to carry on Jesus’ original mission: to bind up the broken-hearted, to heal the sick, to set free those in bondage. Learning to be like Jesus – continuing His mission – doing the same things that He did – that is the Christian life at its most simple.

Equipped For Ministry

For the past twenty years, Mike Evans, the founder of Wholeness Ministries, has been known for being passionate about one thing above all other things: teaching followers of Jesus how to make healing prayer a normal part of their daily life. To know how to pray for the sick at the grocery store, the mall, where we pick up our morning coffee, etc. Through his book, Learning To Do What Jesus Did, you will learn that this can become normal for all believers.

Prayer Team Training

Countless churches and ministries have utilized Mike’s passion in helping them develop a well-grounded and well-trained team of prayer ministers who are soundly equipped to handle the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of others. Mike offers a wide range of materials for those looking to expand their prayer ministries in their church, or to find learning materials to study personally.

Personal Ministry

Do you or someone you know need prayer for physical, emotional, or spiritual healing? The deep healing of our brokenness, whether it’s physical, emotional, or spiritual, is often something we are incapable of accomplishing on our own. Through intensive, incisive prayer sessions, Mike has been able to help numerous people discover levels of freedom and release from emotional and spiritual bondage that they never imagined possible.

Healing Conferences

Wholeness Ministries’ founder Mike Evans is a highly sought-after speaker and lecturer on many specific topics relating to healing, pastoral counseling, and praying effectively. Wholeness Ministries can specifically structure confrences around a wide variety of issues, including dealing with The Traps of Unforgiveness, Healing the Wounded Self-Image, Healing the Father Wound, and identifying Inner Vows and how to renounce them.

“I heartily recommend Mike Evans’ manual on prayer ministry [Learning to do What Jesus Did]. I know Mike personally and he is eminently practical, as well as being a sound, balanced teacher in the areas of both healing and deliverance. This book would be an excellent guide if you yourself want to learn how to pray for healing or, better yet to train a prayer team for your church.” Francis MacNutt, Ph.D. Founder of Christian Healing MinistriesMike is the author of two books: Learning to Do What Jesus Did which has been used by churches worldwide as a textbook for training prayer teams, and Why Not Waste Time with God? a book that explores our deep need to build an intimate relationship with our Creator in the same way we would build any other relationship – through spending quality time together.

Jesus not only proclaimed the Gospel, but he demonstrated the power of God through miracles and by healing the sick and freeing those oppressed by the evil one. Based on our understanding of Luke 4:18-19, we believe that God is calling us as never before to do the works of His Kingdom: to release the oppressed, heal the sick and proclaim the Good News. It is our desire to bring the Christian’s permission and authority to heal back into the mainstream of all denominations of the church. That is why our message is deliberately tailored to be presented in the language that is comfortable for every audience.

Wholeness Ministries has been called to encourage the ministry of healing in the Church in a wide variety of ways by training your in-house prayer ministry; offering healing conferences, seminars, and conducting church-wide or even citywide healing services.

youth-P1000403-600Why Not Waste Time With God? Along with healing prayer, we are equally passionate about moving beyond a superficial relationship with God to live in intimacy with Him. Churches are increasingly bringing us in to spend entire weekends teaching on spiritual renewal and intimacy using Mike’s book Why Not Waste Time With God? We love leading these times of spiritual renewal and refreshment, whether they are for the whole congregation or just for the leadership staff.

We are also committed to reaching young adults with this epic message of healing and moving beyond a superficial relationship with God to a place of genuine intimacy with Him. We offer conferences and workshops for this often overlooked age group.
