Jim Banks was trained in electrical engineering and started his career as an electrical design engineer for a Houston based consulting engineering house, only to find that he didn’t like engineering very much. After a couple of years, he moved into technical sales to take advantage of his education. There he rose to sales and marketing director for several major manufacturers. The first of which was in Houston where he met and married Patricia, who at the time was in Management with Southwestern Bell.Life often takes a number of interesting turns, as it has for Jim and Pat. Despite how or where they were employed, they continued to minister in prayer to the hurting on nights and weekends free of charge for about 15 years. They made the shift into full time ministry in 2002 with a move from the Atlanta area to Asheville, NC where they founded House of Healing Ministries, a ministry to broken hearted individuals. But perhaps more importantly, they established an equipping ministry for the Body of Christ to allow a portion of it to become the compassionate healers they were always meant to be. Part of that effort was to establish a comprehensive healing community through the church they attended there which still operates today. This group of compassionate healers minsters are trained in various aspects of physical healing prayer, inner (emotional and spiritual) healing, and is capable of effectively dealing with about any issue you can think of. In the last 5 years Jim & Pat have trained over 5,000 individuals in some form of inner healing.Jim and Pat Banks live in Campbellsville, KY and travel and train about 50% of the time. They have four children and six grandchildren - all of whom they are very proud.
Our vision is that every church, or group of churches, establish a full service healing center in every community, ministering to every facet of need in the local populous; emotional, physical or spiritual. Just so He can show off a bit. We believe in equipping every believer for that purpose so that the healing power of God may be demonstrated both inside and outside the church. We are compelled by the commands of scripture to reach people where they are by allowing the power and compassion of God to operate through us to touch that which concerns them most. To that end, we would love to pass on to you what the Lord has given us, taught us, and allowed us to experience regarding healing the whole man.
