What is an Ancient Paths Seminar?
The Ancient Paths Seminar is a balanced ministry of Biblical teaching followed by Spirit-led praying in a small groups based upon Jeremiah 6:16.
The teaching is on video by founder Craig Hill. It gives solid principles and moving examples that open the heart up for ministry to receive healing from a cursed identity. The intent of the teaching is not just for information, but to expose hidden areas of woundedness that have occurred in the family of origin or through other significant relationships. Developing relational communication skill is the opening topic. The dynamics of how addictive patterns are formed when the soul is out peace is covered next. Then, Saturday is a journey through critical times of life when God intends to bless a person; such as birth, puberty, marriage, old age.
When a teaching session ends, participants, go to their assigned group for prayer, led by trained facilitators. The purpose of the group is not discussion, counseling, or exhorting, but for asking the Holy Spirit to show participants where our soul is wounded, to expose any lies of the enemy, and to ask the Lord to speak the truth that He wants us to hear in our hearts. Participants may pour out emotional pain to God that has been bottled up for years. But no one in the group is forced to open up in prayer. Those who do not respond outwardly, often receive healing as they identify with those that do.
The end result of this ministry is that people are healed and released to be spouses, parents, and friends who bless one another more and curse each other less.
The purpose of this ministry is to restore God's timeless foundations to families by facilitating God's process of imparting identity and destiny to His people and to reestablish a culture of blessing within the church and community.
