Course Description

(PA710) Deliverance and Spiritual Warfare: Biblical background, techniques and application

The ministry of deliverance, improperly known in some quarters as exorcism, has a long and rich history with the Christian Church. While many Protestant churches no longer practice this ancient form of ministry (and may in fact frown upon it), many Catholic, Pentecostal and “Spirit-filled” churches still do. What exactly is deliverance? Is it a credible ministry in the modern age? If so, where and when would one use it? How does one go about doing so? What benefits might one hope to see from it? These questions and more are addressed in this seminar.

Throughout his life, Ken has worked with parachurch ministries, and in the 1980s he worked full-time for John Wimber for several years at Vineyard Ministries International (VMI). Among his duties at VMI, he worked on various aspects of the conferences that were a hallmark of the early Vineyard movement, including researching and ghost-writing for John Wimber. He has traveled extensively as a conference speaker, teaching on wide variety of topics ranging from leadership and spiritual formation, church growth and revival, biblical authority and exposition, to prophecy and healing and deliverance. Since 2010, Ken's has begun ministering intensively in Australia, working alongside churches as diverse as Anglican, Assembly of God, Baptist, Catholic, Foursquare, Lutheran, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, Vineyard, and non-aligned Pentecostal. His work includes vision-casting, teaching on leadership and awakening themes, equipping the saints to further the advance of the Kingdom of God, and releasing fresh anointing in the midst of visitation. In addition to his work in Australia, Ken has also ministered among churches in New Zealand, Indonesia, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, Canada and the United States. He has been invited to address national gatherings of prophetic and apostolic leaders on topics such as, "What is a Real Prophet?" and "The Hallmarks of an Apostolic Church." He has led training events for the International Association of Healing Rooms in both the Eastern and Western US. These meetings are often accompanied by manifest signs and wonders that include prophetic ministry and healings of many types. Ken's material has been honed over many years, and he has a humorous teaching style that emphasizes both information and impartation.
