For example, we held an ORT Kick Off in Portland hosted by Ap. Paul Mackie in March 2011. I taught them about how to form the councils. By May a chairperson (retired doctor) was selected and they began to host their own council meeting to discover what transformation would look like in healthcare in the greater Portland region.
Here is an example from our WA ST CONECTer in Bellingham. I helped them form their 7 councils in Nov. of 2007 during a conference on "How to Form a Transformation Task Force." They've been operating for over 3 years now and here is a recent example of what their healthcare council is doing:
You are invited by the Health Care Sphere Team for an important vision casting meeting!!
Jeremy Schweder and Kelsie Bosman, leaders of the Health Care Sphere at Light of the World Prayer Center (LOWPC), are holding a meeting May 28, Saturday 11-1pm at the Prayer Center. We would like to share our vision, as well as hear what God is speaking to you within the context of this sphere. We believe God is moving and is asking believers in this season to get into position and alignment with His Heart, His Will and His Ways so that we can become extensions of Him to heal the sick and offer hope.
(just some of the many verses): JEHOVAH-RAPHA: Ex 15:26, Psalms 103:1-4, Pr 4:20-22, Isaiah 53:5, Isaiah 61:1, Matthew 10:1,12:15,14:36b, Acts 4:29-31.
The Vision: To see unity and a melding of health care and faith for healing in Whatcom County! Whether it is practicing medicine, preventative care, or praying for healing… it is for the glory of God to see each of these methods used and relied on to bring restoration to His people! Our desire is to connect health care workers with various ministries throughout the city to promote unity and faith, and testify of the healing power of God at work over this region.
We all need encouragement and inspiration. Think of what it would truly look like as Heaven’s Army is positioned with Faith-full Believers– Giving us the same Authority & Power as Jesus had by His Spirit to go forward in love and compassion, praying for the sick and setting captives free.
We believe for the day when:
Can you picture this? **What has God put on your heart?
Significant Fact: Did you know St. Joseph’s Hospital was founded on the mission of Jesus Christ in 1891? … What does this 120th year hold?!
Please join us May 28, Saturday 11-1pm at Light of the World Prayer Center! We are looking forward to meeting you! We are excited to let the Lord guide our time, begin building a team, and lead us forward so this can truly be His “operation!”
