Transformation Ministries(TM) provides local churches and the body of believers in our community with a resource for helping families in crisis, particularly families touched by addiction. “Our mission is to set at ‘liberty those that are bruised’ in this world through counseling, prayer ministry and discipleship. We want to be an extension of any church that is wanting to partner with us to minister to their church body, train and equip their lay leadership and provide inner healing and deliverance to all that need help,” explains Rock Hobbs who founded the ministry in 2009. Headquartered at WMU (Women’s Missionary Union) in Birmingham, TM has a three-pronged focus: Family/Individual Biblical Counseling, an Inner Healing and Deliverance Prayer Ministry and a School of Ministry.
The School of Ministry will begin fall classes the week of August 21 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings (10 a.m.-Noon) and Tuesday and Thursday evenings (6:30-8:30 p.m.) “Our mission for the school is taken from Eph 4:12,13 that says, ‘…to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ,’ ” explains Hobbs adding, “We train and equip men and women with ministry tools to enable them to minister to the local body of Christ in their churches as prayer ministers and counselors.” Students attend one of four 12-week classes: Part I/”The Keys to Inner Healing”, Part II/”Liberty from Life’s Bruises”, Part III/”Spiritual Warfare and Deliverance” and Part IV/”Advanced Ministry Tools.” Classes are two hours long once a week. “We teach for one hour and then we have small group break outs where the students can practice what they have been learning,” says Hobbs.
The school offers two tracks of training. On the Education Track, you are not required to attend all the classes and there is no homework. On the Ministry Track, you must attend at least 10 of the 12 classes and all the homework must be turned in by the end of the last session. Through this track, TM also offers continued training for “Licenses to Minister” and eventually Ordination after completing all prior requirements and two years of prayer ministry experience.
Classes take place at WMU and are also offered via live streaming to remote locations including Auburn and the Shoals area. If you register before August 1, tuition and books for the 12-week classes is $150, after August 1, $175.
