(Also known as Advanced Training)

March 3-6, 2011 in Houston, Texas

What is included in Basic Training II?

  • Basic Training I is included in Basic Training II. You will learn how to heal the sick as Jesus commanded his disciples when he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God to the lost (Luke 10:9). This Basic Training is standard equipment for every disciple of Jesus Christ since every believer is called to be a witness to the lost. People with infirmities are invited to join us to receive the laying on of hands for healing. Infirm people will be healed by you during these demonstrations. In addition, we will include special Training on effective approaches to preaching the Kingdom of God to gospel-resistant peoples like Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists. There will also be additional topics not covered in Basic Training I including scriptural examinations of what are called "the anointing" and "spiritual warfare against principalities."
  • Training to train others: You will learn how to teach the Basic Training to your people. You will learn how to equip your people to heal the sick and cast out demons as Jesus taught His disciples.
  • Evangelistic Healing Service: On Sunday afternoon we will hold an evangelistic healing service where you will apply what you have just learned under "actual battlefield conditions" —you will heal the infirm to demonstrate to the lost that Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father. The time and place will be announced. An open-air public venue is being considered where the lost can hear the gospel and the infirm will be healed.
  • Training materials: Basic and Advanced Training files downloadable for free from the internet.

The Elijah Challenge equips every believer according to John 14:12 to heal the sick as Jesus commanded His disciples to demonstrate to the world that He is the only way to the Father. It has been accepted by both evangelical and charismatic churches and has brought reconciliation and unity. It is instrumental in equipping the Church to fulfill the Great Commission. The age of the nameless and faceless believer is at hand. We invite you to come to be equipped to heal the sick in Jesus' name to reach the most gospel-resistant people groups.

Luke 10:9 "Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you.'"

John 14:12 "I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater works than these, because I am going to the Father."
