6pm Tuesday, Nov 1st – Pastor Gwendolyn G. Young, Author
God gave the blueprint for The Lord’s Healing Church to our founder and visionary, Gwendolyn G. Young, who is also a prolific teacher and preacher of the Word of God. Her ministry is marked by miracles, signs and wonders as she ministers the Word of God. She previously served as the principal for a Christian elementary school, the Dean and instructor for the Bible Institute and as Assistant Pastor of the church that she attended in Richmond, VA. Additionally, Pastor Young served as the interim Pastor for the congregation of Faith Alive International Ministries (later called Great Faith Christian Center) in Washington, DC while its Pastor completed a tour of duty in Iraq for the US Army.
Regarding ministry Pastor Young says, “My greatest desire is to see people live victoriously by entering into relationship with God through His Word. It is not enough to memorize Scriptures, though that is fundamental. More importantly, one must come to know Jesus, who is the incarnate Word of God. Most people have a genuine desire and long for for an intimate relationship with God. Yet, few know how to obtain, or enter into, such a relationship. That’s why my prayer is, ‘Lord, love your people through me’. I want people to know Him and His way of doing things.”
The vision for The Lord’s Healing Church, a church body that is a place for healing, hope and wholeness for all people. Before one can begin to approach the task of overcoming obstacles s/he must first see themselves as our Heavenly Father does. When He sees us, He does not see faults, flaws, or limitations; rather, He sees the finished work of the Son, Jesus. So, Image Bearer Ministries was birthed to develop, equip and send forth men, women, and children who bear and share the image of Jesus, the Christ who will be able to disciple others in the same manner of living.
When you join us in a service, expect to hear the pure, unadulterated word of God and to see a demonstration of the power of God. Of her ministry, Pastor Young says, “All I can do is quote what Apostle Paul said to the church at Corinth, ‘And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God’ (1 Corinthians 2:1-5). I want your faith to be in the power of God. And when He shows up He proves Himself, every time!”
Pastor Young is also the founder and CEO of Gwendolyn Young Ministries, Inc. (GYM).
