God's Cleansing Stream reveals why every church needs a deliverance ministry and teaches pastors and counselors how they can put one to practical use. Deliverance was originally part of every church, but the rise of self-help programs and the idea of an individual's ability to change without God's help edged the church away from God's Word and power. Instead, deliverance came to be thought of as mere superstition. Now Chris Hayward provides tools for churches to reestablish this effective, proven ministry so that it can liberate captive souls and advance God's plans in the lives of individuals everywhere.
CHRIS HAYWARD is the president of Cleansing Stream Ministries, an organization dedicated to equipping local churches for biblically balanced, sound and effective healing, and deliverance ministry. Before his time with Cleansing Stream Ministries, Chris was the founding pastor at Christian Fellowship Church in Mount Vernon, Illinois, for 12 years, and he has served in pastoral ministry for more than 24 years. He currently makes his home in Castaic, California, with his wife, Karen. They have three children and two grandchildren.
