Prayer Ministry Training Organisations

There are numerous organisations and ministries which offer training in various aspects of ministry to broken people. Here we list the organisations, their contact details, and a description of the type of training they offer.

For details of particular courses they may run from time to time check their websites or see our events page.

Peter and Heather Toth at Anazao run a 13 week Counselling & Ministry School, and a 4 week Cutting Edge Ministry School. The training is broad, but they also have a particular expertise in ministering to Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) and Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA).

They are also available to run short courses in your venue on many topics.

Peter has published a number of books, including Dissociation, The Forgotten Factor in Healing, focussing on effective and rapid ministry to those with DID; and Underestimating Satan, about the influence of the kingdom of darkness in the world. He has also published The Passover Celebration for Christians.

Beth Tephillah Ministries

Malcolm and Diana Dow and their team at Beth Tephillah run courses on Hearing God's Voice, Spiritual Warfare, Intimacy with God, Intercession, Healing Prayer Ministry, and The Creative Spirit.

They also organise seminars on topical issues when well-known teachers become available. Examples have been Dr Charles Kraft on Deep Healing, Peter and Heather Toth on Dissociation and Satanic Ritual Abuse, and the late Dr John Ouw on The Relationship between Psychiatry and Prayer Ministry, and Ministering to People Under Psychiatric Care.

The full notes and resources for the Beth Tephillah course Hearing God's Voice are freely available online at Intimacy with God can be found at Other online courses and websites are being developed in partnership with Malcolm's internet ministry

Their current focus is on restoring the Western church to its original New Testament form and mission, with an emphasis on non hierarchical leadership, APEST (properly functioning Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Shepherds, and Teachers) and Simple Church. (More information on Simple Church can be found through the website of Oikos Australia, a house church friendship ministry of which Malcolm and Diana are team members.) They are exploring how prayer ministry is but one of the aspects of the ministry of the disciple which must be brought back into the normal life of all followers of Jesus.

Train for service . . .

"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth."

2 Timothy 2:15 (NIV)


Learn to minister . . .

"But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

2 Timothy 3:14-17 (NIV)
