About HCM International

HCM International is a non-profit ministry dedicated to supporting and resourcing men and women around the globe that are using formational prayer as a means of bringing the healing presence of Jesus Christ to emotionally broken people.

Presently, over 4000 caregivers (professional and lay) from 17 countries have been equipped to position emotionally wounded people for healing, deliverance, and transformation through the various protocols of formational prayer.

Originally developed by Dr. Terry Wardle, Professor of Practical Theology at Ashland Theological Seminary in Ashland, OH, U.S.A., formational prayer is a ministry of the Holy Spirit, flowing through the Christian caregiver, bringing the healing presence of Jesus Christ into the place of deep personal brokenness.

Formational prayer is a modality of care that integrates current insights in the behavioral sciences, sound practices of Christian counseling, and the dynamics of Biblical spirituality into a well-balanced approach to healing unprocessed emotional, spiritual, and relational wounds.

This website is designed for the exclusive use of those men and women trained in formational prayer through one or more of the following educational opportunities:
