WHO WE ARE
The Directors of the Retreat are Jim and Barbara Wilson, who live at the Retreat year-round. They also act as "spiritual facilitators" for those retreaters who desire their spiritual input and encouragement.
Jim and Barbara have been involved in Christian ministry for many years. Both Jim and Barbara are ordained ministers and Barbara is an experienced worship leader. They are both trained and experienced in Holy Spirit led listening prayer for inner healing. They have been married for over forty years, have three sons, two daughters-in-law, and three grandchildren.
They are the founding pastors of The River Harvest Fellowship, a house church birthed in 1995 in Mount Denson, Nova Scotia. Healing Presence Christian Retreat is a ministry of The River Harvest Fellowship, which has evolved into a trans-denominational fellowship of Christians who seek to help people experience God's presence and His healing love. The River Harvest Fellowship is affiliated as a Partner in Harvest with the Partners in Harvest network of churches. Healing Presence has also been the home of an official Catch the Fire Soaking Prayer Centre since the fall of 2003.
