About Strong In Spirit Ministries
It's what Jesus said in
Luke 4:18...

“He has sent me to proclaim release to the set free those who are oppressed.
What – Christians Captive & Oppressed?!
To some those words might seem like heresy, but not to God. Consider Colossians 2:8, See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow or deceptive philosophy.” Or Acts 8:23 where Peter says about Simon, “I see you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.” Christians can be as captive, miserable, defeated and destroyed as anybody else (Isaiah 42:22, Romans 7:15-19, Galatians 5:1, 2 Timothy 2:26).

So, what strongholds of sin are you captive to?

Unworthiness, anger, condemnation, gossip, judging, pride, lying, various fears, rebellion, drugs, alcohol, negativity, adultery? The list is endless.
But no matter what it is, it's likely causing you to live in a substandard spiritual state of constant defeat and condemnation. That is not God's will for your life!!
So, How Does All This Happen? 
The first part of Transformation Ministry is Jesus' fulfilling His ministry to heal the broken-hearted.” The second part of Transformation Ministry deals with “setting the captives free from captivity to strongholds of sin, by enforcing Jesus' defeat of Satan in our lives. It's the job of the enemy and his henchmen to get us captive to some sin or another (Hebrews 12:1) likely one that is already in your generational line (Exodus 34:7). After all, we not only live with a fallen human nature that's predisposed to sin, we also have an enemy whom Jesus described as aggressively working to steal, kill and destroy us (John 10:10) through captivity to sin. Peter was equally serious about this reality (having experienced Satan himself in Matthew 16:23), declaring that Satan prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to chew up  and spit out/devour (1 Peter 5:8). Paul experienced Satan's attacks so frequently that he wrote, I don't want Satan to outwit us. After all, we are not ignorant about his scheming,” (1 Corinthians 2:11).
How about you? Are you knowledgeable – or are you ignorant and in denial about what Satan is doing in your life to keep you down, disobedient, in despair, depressed, defeated – and captive? Freedom awaits, but only Jesus can deliver it –and us – from the evil one (Matthew 6:13).

Heart Cross
Why Did Jesus Pray, Deliver Us From Evil? 
Surprisingly, deliverance from demonic oppression was likely Jesus' #1 ministry. It was not only a regular occurrence for Him, it was also a part of both His healings (Luke 7:21), and His miracles (Mark 9:39). Why was it so important to Him? Because He came to earth to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8) – including both broken-heartedness and captivities to sin.
Have you ever thought that some of the thoughts in your mind, your captivity to particular sins and urges, and the reactions of your heart, may not really be you? It is entirely possible! Jesus did deliverance and trained His disciples how to do it throughout the gospels and the Book of Acts. Paul underlines this by saying we wrestle with spiritual beings instead of people.

How Can I Get Healed & Free  Through Transformation Ministry?
Transformation Ministry (= Healed In Heart + Freed To Live) normally takes about 4-8 hours to complete. If you would like to experience this healing and freedom for yourself, then please take the following three steps...
1. Understand what Transformation Ministry is. Read Why Transformation Ministry? and The Biblical Basis For Transformation Ministry.
2. For adults and teens, print, read and fill out the Transformation Ministry Inventory (or for 8-12 year olds, fill out the Transformation Ministry Pre-Teen Version).  If you are wondering why this is necessary, please read, Why Fill Out The TM Inventory?
3. When finished, email Pastor Bruce at or, or call him at (423) 201-9552 to schedule your Transformation Ministry session.

                        Needing a short tune-up (an hour or two of additional ministry) after your first TM Session?
                 Then print and fill out the 2 page TM Tune-Up Inventory and call Pastor Bruce for an appointment.

Transformation Ministry Conference
How Can I Help Others Get Healed & Free?
There are a couple of key things you can do. First, share with them your testimony of what God did in your life through Transformation Ministry. Second, let others speak of their experience through these powerful TM Testimonies of getting free. Third, send them to this website so they can read for themselves about getting Healed In Heart and Freed To Live.

But perhaps most importantly, if you would like to add significantly to your knowledge and understanding of how this works, or learn how to minister it to others more effectively, I encourage you to consider scheduling a Transformation Ministry Conference. This is a unique, comprehensive and practical training session that encompasses about 20+ hours of teaching that will not only make it possible for you to receive greater healing for yourself, it will also enable you to minister it far more effectively to others. For a fuller description, see the TM Conference Outline. (A 30 page Conference Handout is included for each participant).

The entire Conference does not have to be presented at one time  (20+ hours of teaching equals about 4-5 days of presentations) – so any portion of it can be presented according to what you most need or desire. The cost of the entire Transformation Ministry Conference is $60 per person or $80 per family. If you would rather have Pastor Bruce present a shorter portion of this teaching focused on your specific needs rather than in its entirety, then schedules and costs can be adjusted accordingly.
This is the best way to spread the healing and freedom to many, many others in the Kingdom of God!
