Why Does Restoring The Foundations Charge For Ministry?

We are often asked why RTF charges for ministry. The Healing House Network ministers are highly trained, professional ministers.  Our ministers are equipped and empowered.  They have completed a rigorous course of study including numerous hours of oversight with observation by an RTF Trainers.  When we release our ministers, as a part members of the Healing House Network, we are confident that they are competent and proficient in the RTF Integrated Approach of to ministry and they are led by the Holy Spirit throughout the ministry.  Most of our Healing House ministers consider the RTF ministry their primary calling.  They have laid down other employment to be able to focus on ministering to the needs of the hurting.  When the Lord initially began RTF, he impressed upon founders Chester and Betsy Kylstra, the founders that “the workman is worthy of his hire.” and that the people should be “invested in their own healing”. Investing in your own ministry is a faith activator. When you value something you’re willing to make an investment in it. You are paying for the expertise of the ministry team to “set the table” for you to have an encounter with the Healer.  In 2 Samuel 24:24, there is a principle where David insists on paying for his sacrifice to the Lord.  When you sow into your own life, you will reap in your life.  Your ministry team will be investing in your healing.  They spend a number of hours preparing before the first session and between each of your sessions.  Their investment in your healing is significant.  The Lord directed the founders of RTF to have people pay so they are invested in their own healing. Investing in your own ministry is a faith activator. Our ministers are like your pastor who is paid for what he/she does.   We have heard a number of people share that they had spent thousands of dollars and years in psychotherapy or counseling and did not see the radically life-changing results as they did with Restoring the Foundations.  Ministry Formats An Issue-Focused Ministry session is usually about 3 hours in length.  During this time your ministers will address one main issue in your life using the RTF Integrated Approach.  The cost for this ministry is usually $300.00.  It’s amazing what God can do in this time frame! (USD pricing)  The Thorough Format Ministry is approximately 15 hours of individual ministry. It is life-changing as hearts are healed and transformed! As individuals experience an encounter with the Healer they are radically impacted. Along the way you are equipped and empowered to continue to walk in freedom!
