Last year, in July 2016, the Lord gathered an extraordinary group of healthcare and healing leaders and practitioners from around the world to Chatel, Switzerland.  With a mandate to see the mountain of Healthcare integrated with the healing ministry of Jesus, we drank deeply together in prayer and worship, deepening unity with one another while collaborating for this dream and global mandate.  
Also, the Lord allowed us to enter into a number of powerful times of intercession for the cleansing of the foundations of our healthcare systems.  We all came away from this time encouraged and clearly seeing the formation of a renewed Kingdom Healthcare Foundation being formed and established throughout the earth.  We came away believing in the utter importance for this journey to continue, and coming together as His global family.
Haggai 1:7 Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways! Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the Lord. So, let us go up this mountain together this summer and explore how the Lord would continue to align us with kingdom friendships, partnerships, collaboration and global strategies for healing models that would touch all spheres of society throughout the nations! Let us once again receive fresh manna and resources from heaven as we gather together and encourage one another in His name.
COST:    $350 USD includes housing, food, and ground airport transportation.
SPONSORED BY:     Transformation Health Network, Together International, Healing Tree International and Christ Healing Center.
Special Keynote speakers will be announced at a later date.
