THPM Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees for Tallahassee Healing Prayer Ministries ensures that THPM stays aligned with its mission, values and strategic plan.  We pray continually for God’s will and guidance for this vital ministry as it expands throughout the Tallahassee community.


The Board is launching the organization forward so that it can serve more and more churches and individuals with its prayer ministry, healing and life skills training which transform people from places of pain to places filled with joy!


Board members establish overall policy, set the scope of operation, approve the operating budget and insure legal, fiduciary and financial responsibilities are met. 


Members of the Board understand, support and participate in THPM’s programs and services. This is an active, working Board, faithful to our mission to devote ourselves to prayer and to supporting relational, spiritual and physical healing that enable people we touch to live from the joyful heart Jesus desires for us all.
