Beth Tephillah Ministry Centre is a healing and training ministry of Williamstown Baptist Church, under the direction of Pastors Malcolm and Diana Dow.
Since 1996 volunteer staff from many different churches and denominations have provided healing ministry and prayer counselling under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, supported by a group of trained intercessors in another room.
The Beth Tephillah prayer ministers and intercessors have been trained by many organisations, including Wholeness through Christ (Australia), Ellel Ministries, Elijah House Ministries Australia, Beth Tephillah Ministries, Roaring Mouse Counselling, Restoration, Anazao Counselling, and Sonrise Family Ministries.
Malcolm and Diana’s own training includes all of these ministry organisations and they have taught with some of them before beginning their own training ministries. They have been involved in Prayer Counselling since 1990.
Beth Tephillah Ministries is a member of the Healing Prayer Ministries Network, a support network for ministries and individuals carrying out healing prayer ministry and prayer counselling in Australia.
Beth Tephillah Ministries, in conjunction with Roaring Mouse Counselling, has arranged seminars with people such as Dr Charles Kraft, a Professor at Fuller Seminary in California and author of many popular and respected books on missiology, deep inner healing and deliverance, and Peter and Heather Toth of Anazao Counselling in Queensland. Chuck Kraft’s books include Deep Wounds Deep Healing, Defeating Dark Angels, I Give You Authority, Christianity with Power, Confronting Powerless Christianity, The Rules of Engagement, Behind Enemy Lines, and his latest book: Two Hours to Freedom. He also contributed to Frank DeCenso’s book Amazed by the Power of God. Peter is the author of The Forgotten Factor in Healing, outlining a revolutionary and effective new method of dealing with dissociation, and Underestimating Satan. Both of these ministries have contributed much to the training of our staff, and frequently refer clients to us for counselling.
Beth Tephillah Ministries also runs its own training seminars and courses for those who wish to be equipped for prayer ministry or for more effective discipleship. In the past courses run have included:
Introduction to Prayer Counselling - A definitive guide to prayer counselling, prayer ministry, Christian counselling, and healing ministry.
Hearing God’s Voice - For those who want together to learn more about hearing God’s voice, and how to recognise the voice of God among the many other voices claiming our attention.
Intimacy with God - Learning to listen to God at all times and live in close relationship with Him.
Intercession and Spiritual Warfare
Other courses are being planned.
Ministry takes place by appointment at 55 Park Crescent WILLIAMSTOWN 3016, and a modest donation is requested to cover expenses For appointments or to find out about training contact Pastor Diana Dow 9397 2430. Email: .
People who require more time than the 1.5 hours of a typical Beth Tephillah ministry session, as is frequently the case for deeper issues such as removal of dissociate parts, can arrange for private ministry with Malcolm and Diana through Roaring Mouse Counselling. A minimum of 2 hours may be booked and an hourly charge is made for such ministry.
