Newsletter - The Grace and Gift Report
Grace and Gift Ministries has spent time reevaluating how to best minister to all people. That required time to regroup and to listen for how God would have us go forward. For example, should we keep things the same as usual or change things up a bit? The direction of healing is still the same but Allison is adding a different dynamic through her internship at Holy Trinity Anglican Church. Please read the below information and let us know if you have any questions. Please select the contact link and feel free to ask your questions or share your thoughts through this website.
What has Been Happening with Grace and Gift Ministries?
Grace and Gift Ministries has been restructuring over the past year. We have come up with some great opportunities for participants to enter into God's presence for a time of refreshment. Allison has decided to do her second internship, for her MDiv, at Holy Trinity Anglican Church (HTAC), in Broomfield. HTAC is Allison's home church.
What has Allison Been Up To?
Allison has been studying very hard in school. She has has the opportunity to delve deep into her mind and spirit where she has found a consistent theme. Healing. Surprised? Probably not! Many of you know Allison's passion for healing through teaching prayer trainings, helping to develop prayer ministry teams, prayer sessions, and leading prayer services. School has given her the ability to fine tune her theology, which ended up verifying her original passion for healing in the first place. School has been helpful because she has been able to conclude that she serves and sees life through a healing theology and with a Christology of Christ the Healer. Now, it is time for her to walk forward in confidence to serve God with even a greater passion and sense of direction.
Help to Bring Joy and Be Blessed Through Your Presence!
Allison will continue to work out her theology of healing and present the fruit of her work though ministering God's grace in service to you. Please join her as she works to do her part in building God's kingdom here on earth. Your presence will bring her great joy and help her to grow in her ability to lead people into the peace of God. You will be Allison's focus of prayers and study as she lifts up all whom God leads into his presence through her work in Christ. She envisions time together with you and God as a joyous, empowering, and impactful event where we enjoy blessings together.
