We have learned a great deal from Chuck. Apart from his depth of knowledge and exprience, his greatest impact on us has been from his graciousness and willingness to give whatever time is needed to a person in trouble. At all times he is careful to protect a person's dignity. Considering the amount of personal attack he has endured over the years from Christian leaders trying to "protect" their people from "false teaching", especially in the area of Christians and demons and how to deal with them, we are greatly impressed by Chuck's patience and quiet forbearance. He truly is a Christian statesman.
We first met Chuck at a seminar arranged by Wholeness through Christ Australia. He was in Australia for another conference, and WTCM, who had until then taught us not to do deliverance like Dr. Kraft because "he talks to demons, and they will always lie to you," took the opportunity to arrange for him to demonstrate his deliverance ministry using the approach he describes in Defeating Dark Angels: Breaking Demonic Oppression in the Believer's Life. As we took part in a healing session to one of our leaders, in which demons manifested and were quietly and efficiently dealt with along with the sin issues that allowed them to be there, our stereotypes were shattered. From then on we enthusiastically embraced his approach, and have had great success with it. Chuck has since updated his teaching on deliverance with a new book: Two Hours to Freedom: A Simple and Effective Model for Healing and Deliverance.
