Paul Rapley is a cancer-survivor of seven years and a graduate of three years of Bill Johnson’s School of Ministry in Redding, California and is 3/4 of the way through his Master’s of Divinity from King’s Seminary (Jack Hayford’s school). He has a Bible and Theology degree from Crown College and has been a teacher at Minnesota Teen Challenge’s Ministry School. He is currently on staff as the Itinerant Healing Minister of a church in the north bay of San Francisco, California. He has ministered in over three hundred healing services where the Lord has healed over 8000 conditions. He has a tremendous passion to have the body of Christ empowered to minister in healing and the other gifts of the Spirit.
I have a burning passion to equip Christians in the power that He died to give us. This has happened both internationally and nationally, in churches, large open-air meetings, pastor’s conferences, drug rehabs, homeless shelters, half-way houses, food warehouses, and other places – just to give some examples of the spectrum of places this can occur. This also occurs in a variety of age ranges from children’s services, to college groups, all the way to convalescent homes, and in many different ethnic groups and denominations. In this process, many choose to begin to start a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
I minister in a broad spectrum of churches/ministries including Assemblies of God, Four Square, Baptist, Mennonite, Christian & Missionary Alliance,and many more. In my experience, I grew up Baptist, received a Bible & Theology degree from an Alliance college, worked at Teen Challege for four years which is affiliated with the Assemblies of God, did three years of Bethel Church’s ministry school (Bill Johnson’s school which is in charge of the Global Legacy network of churches), am on staff as the Itinerant Healing Minister of a Christian Outreach Centre church, and am finishing my Master’s degree from a Four Square seminary. Therefore, I have a lot of experience in a broad spectrum of churches. However, my beliefs have been most impacted by Bethel Church and Global Legacy of them all and would be considered to be Charismatic.
