I was so extremely blessed the moment I came to the conference. Your wife greeted me and took time to speak and pray with me and I felt sooooo loved and special. Tom gave me a big papa hug, made me cry. And you said it was nice to see me! I was overwhelmed with acceptance and love! Thank you all sooooooo much! Then the potluck was just as great. Everyone was so kind and prayed with me. I have not felt this encouraged in a looooong time! I kept putting off the potlucks because I was nervous about not knowing anyone. So a great big SHOUT OF THANKS to you all for making me feel so welcome! - Kelly
The Belonging Class changed the way I looked at myself and my life by understanding the way God created my brain and my emotions to interact with each other. I am a changed person because of this class and recommend it for anyone seeking healing and enlightenment!
The Redemptive Gifts presentation by Jim and Pat Banks was by far the most life changing seminar I have ever attended. All my life I have struggled with feeling like I was a square peg in a round hole without understanding why. Thanks to this teaching, I discovered that the person God created me to be is entirely different than the person I thought I should be. Discovering my God-given identity has been truly liberating! - D.B.
Over the past few years, I have had the privilege of participating in some of the KCHC classes, including the Advanced Inner Healing class. Tom Paterik and Steve Bartlett carry a special fathering mantle for God's people. I'm reminded of the passage in 1 Peter 5:1-4, where Peter was exhorting the elders to "shepherd God's flock... and to be godly examples." Tom and Steve both have shepherds hearts. They've ministered for many years in the area of inner healing and have a lot of helpful insights to pass on. Most learn best by observing others and those on the leadership team at KCHC are great examples to God's people. - Juliet Canha
I loved Restarting! The most valuable things I learned was what happens to a person when they have experienced a trauma. Type A or B. In an effort to maintain some level of joy, we often start acting in ways that we had never acted before. I had a great falling away from my family because of my own personal rebellion and before it could be reconciled completely my Mother passed away. My father was in a deep shock and deeply sorrowful. My Mom was my Fathers best friend and so when she died he seemed to also. So at 20 years old I lost my parents, was on my own, went through a divorce and many losses. I compensated with drugs, alcohol and men. 8 years later I met Jesus and my life changed.
I spent the next many years (like 30) thinking I was the most terrible person because of those 8 years of failures. In Restart I learned what had happened to me. I started to understand who I was created to be was not the scared, brokenhearted, alone slut (can I say that) girl I believed myself to be. Once I got saved, I truly repented for all of my sins and turned completely but always felt like I was less then everyone else because of those 8 years. I remember the Restart class vividly the night of this revelation because I blurted out "I am not a slut!!" What freedom that has brought and I am remaining on the journey of discovering who I am, what I have to give and how I am going to walk out the rest of my life.
Restart really helped me on a whole new Journey!
"There is now therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus"
I would highly recommend Restart to anyone. There is much to be gleaned. Once is really not enough!

"I have learned so much from Building Relationships For Life class. I started out leaving the class in tears as I saw the majority of my life choices motivated by 'fear'. I felt the weightiness of the result of that. Then God continued to connect the dots to why I kept getting disappointed over and over again,....I see the WISDOM of God, the PROTECTION of God, and the LOVE of God in it all. I see how 'fear bonds' keep us earth bound, and clip our wings from living the life God intended as a new creation in Christ Jesus. I look forward to learning more about HOLY WANT, and pursuing it's fullness. Now I 'm leaving the class, exhilarated...FREE of pain, and excited to be all that God created me to be." - Anonymous
I've always had an extremely active imagination! This got me in trouble as a child as I was always daydreaming or distracted and somewhere else in my mind. As I got older I thought my imagination was something bad and I should really try and not use it too much. I started going to the Holy Fascination class and I learned that my imagination was a gift from God to be used for His glory and to experience Him! The first time I went on a prophetic journey, facilitated by brother Steve, it surprised me! The Holy spirit actually took over and it was such a real experience to me that I was filled with emotion and began crying. It really encouraged me to begin to use my imagination for encounter with God, or just picturing the word as I read it, speaking to God while using imagination! I've been doing it for awhile now, and its also opened up the prophetic to me even more! As I pray in the spirit over someone, sometimes the Lord will give me pictures to describe how He feels for that person! God wants to encounter us everyday and we can come to Him boldly as our Father knowing He will meet us!

Theophostics has opened up my eyes to the power of inner healing. The teachings coupled with facilitation sessions allow students to learn how to minister to others while being ministered to. Through this class, I have learned tools that help me partner with Jesus in successfully identifying and uprooting lies which have been operating in my life for years. And it's all directed and guided by Him! I now realize that each encounter with Jesus is an opportunity for freedom and I expect Him to bring justice in this area of my life. - Anonymous
Taking Theophostic has changed the way I view myself and my relationship with God. He has shown me how He really is fighting on my behalf in every aspect of my life and desires to answer my cries for help. As lies are removed, I am learning to appreciate who I really am because I now can receive the truth that Jesus likes how He made me. Each encounter and new experience in Theophostic has caused me to realize that God is so much more amazing that I could ever fathom! - Nadiyah
