Kathi Oates has been a pastor’s wife for 28 years. She and her husband Gary have planted 5 churches, three of which were Vineyards. In the last 10 years they have traveled together in an international ministry. During that time Kathi, who had been and still is on her own emotional healing journey, began exploring the possibility of doing emotional healing and deliverance in a large group. As she stepped out in faith God began to meet the people with release of pain and trauma and freedom from captivity. The signature verse for Healing the Brokenhearted ministries is Isaiah 61:1-3. Recently she has been on a sabbatical and has returned to ministry doing both prayer counseling on an individual basis and doing seminars with group ministry. She has a heart to see the Body of Christ healed and restored to wholeness. The healing tools she uses during ministry have their foundations in the mandate of Isaiah 61 and of course in Isaiah 53 ( the experiential reality of the finished work of Jesus on the cross).
She has authored a book Open My Heart Lord about her own healing journey and has appeared on the Sid Roth show “It’s Supernatural” and the 700 Club interactive. She has also been on several radio talk shows in various countries.
God’s heart is to heal His people so they in turn can reach out and bring healing to a desperate dying world. Healing the Brokenhearted is one of the many ministries God is using at this time to bring wholeness to the Body of Christ.
