Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

012017 upboundKANNAPOLIS — Unbound, a ministry which equips local churches and ministries to pray for the spiritual and emotional freedom of others, will host the Unbound Freedom in Christ Conference March 10-11 at St. Joseph Church.

Unbound is a non-confrontational ministry which focuses on the love, mercy, healing and forgiveness found in Jesus Christ. It was co-founded by Neal and Janet Lozano of Heart of the Father Ministries, Pa. The Lozanos have more than 30 years of pastoral experience helping people find freedom in Jesus Christ. Neal Lozano is an international speaker and a leader of evangelistic outreach to students. Janet Lozano leads the training team and missions.

The session on Friday, March 10, which will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is a training session for those who wish to apply this ministry in their parishes. The training consists of a teaching and a ministering session. A teaching entitled “UNBOUND: Principles and Practice” will be presented, then reinforced during the conference as each of the principles is examined in depth.

Participants will use their training on Saturday, March 11, on the ministry team. One person will lead the group as those recently trained pray for those from the seminar who request prayer using the model that had been taught. The ministry team will pray during each session of the conference, so attendance is necessary at the entire conference.

Attendance at the Friday training session requires a special registration process.

The Saturday conference will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It is open to everyone, with no special registration requirements. The day will include praise, talks by Neal Lozano, prayer time and the Father’s blessing.

Interested attendees are strongly encouraged to read Neal Lozano’s book “Unbound: A Practical Guide to Deliverance from Evil Spirits” before attending the training session or conference.
