A Christian Ministry of Inner Healing and Deliverance
We are saved to save, healed to heal, delivered to deliver… and we follow Christ to lead others
In Luke 4:18, Jesus reads from the Isaiah 61:1 scroll passage, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free” NIV
In Matthew 11:4-5, Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news brought to them. And blessed is anyone who takes no offense at me.” NIV
We, as disciples of Jesus are to do the same, as he says to us from John 14:12, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” NIV
As believers of Jesus Christ we have been in-dwelt by the Holy Spirit. We do nothing by ourselves, it is only by the Spirit that we do what we do.We–myself, my wife and family have purposed to live out these words during the last 30 years of ministry. We know the Holy Spirit is alive and well, healing and setting captives free. We’ve been fortunate enough to be Christ’s hands and feet and deliver the healing He offers.
- We are Saved to Save
- Healed to Heal
- Delivered to Deliver
- Follow Christ to Lead
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 NIV
“The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor…
Isa 61:1, 2
Get to know us…
Life is broken. Reality is, in fact, extremely broken, fallen, better said, and is experiencing a not-so-hidden war of eternal consequences. As we turn our gaze around us, we see broken and wounded people, relationships and society. We experience a level of personalized evil that does not make sense. We see a pandemic percentage of humans suffering, not only physically, but from a score of spiritual, emotional and relational wounds. A wide range of bondages–fear, anger, rejection, shame, rage, lies, along with spiritual deception, inferiority, unforgiveness, depression, phobias, sexual brokenness, uncontrollable impulses and insatiable desires seem to be the internal programming that drive people on chaotic journeys leading to generational cycles of wounding, hate, desperation and destruction. Is this really happening to us? Is there an underlying core reason for such a state we find ourselves in? How can we overcome this broken reality? What are we going to do? Is there any hope?
Yes, there is profound hope, a solution, and a way out of this broken mess! In my many journeys all over this planet and in my exploration of the wide variety of human philosophies and religions, I have met only one healthy person and his name is Jesus. He is the way, the truth and the life…He indeed will lead us back to the Father and our original intent for existing.
One day, long ago, Jesus stood up in a community of believers, took a scroll from Isaiah and read: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor…” He stopped, laid down the scroll, took his seat amongst the community and proclaimed: “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” He then went about doing just that. He engaged the enemy of our souls.
Reconciliation and healing in God was being set loose in reality. Jesus was fulfilling the ancient prophecy of the Messiah. What was broken was now being mended. The year of the Lord’s favor had arrived. A healing relationship and intimacy with Him that He originally intended for us, a life full of promise and purpose, was being restored to human kind. A new, powerful kingdom had invaded a dark, cruel reality actually defeating the Lord of that reality. This kingdom of God spreads even today by those who have put their trust in Him, Jesus. We are called to do what He did, to heal that which is wounded, and to break chains to free that which is imprisoned.
We have ministered in 59 countries in the world. Here are some of them…
A Global Ministry
Gary travels all over the world from his base in Spain.
I have known and worked with Gary and Kathleen for many years now both in the States and on overseas trips. I am convinced that the hand of the Lord is definitely on them. I have trained and ministered with many choice servants of God. Among those I have worked with, Gary and Kathleen stand out for their ability to live close to Jesus, hear Him clearly and function regularly in His power. God has gifted them in unique ways to use the authority and power Jesus gave to His followers (Luke 9:1) to bring freedom to those living in captivity. They have now been used by God to bring freedom to hundreds of people. This puts them among the most experienced in the world in ministering to people this way.

Gary’s and Kathleen’s ministry has been of great value to many people I know personally. However, perhaps even more important is their vision to equip others to engage in spiritual warfare. In this age when the worldview of many Christians seems more taken from scientific rationalism than from the Bible, their ministry provides a much-needed correction.

“Everything we can report from the time of your sojourn here is strictly positive! We have been helped so by things you taught and shared. Even on our holiday in Nazareth a lovely young woman was freed, and we and she were thrilled.”
— Ruth, cross-cultural worker in a creative access country
“After twenty years in ministry I felt all my personal troubles were just my life long cross to bear… After ministry [with Gary] I experienced such an incredible change in myself, my marriage, life and ministry my wife was shocked and encouraged to receive ministry for herself. After each session with you I felt born again, again. I moved to an ever deeper level of freedom and power in ministry I did not know existed before now.”
— Pastor Paul
“In ten seminars in ten years, Gary and Kathleen Hixson have done an eye-opening ministry in inner healing and deliverance among and together with Campus Crusade for Christ in Switzerland. Various staff members made significant progresses toward a deeper experience of spiritual freedom and commitment for the Lord Jesus Christ. Others have been equipped to serve others in the area of inner healing and deliverance. With their Biblical and sensitive approach, the Hixsons have been a big help for us.”
— Peter Höhn, Member of the Leadership-board, Campus Crusade for Christ, Switzerland
“My wife would be dead today if not for this ministry she receive from you! Many heartfelt thanks!”

Partner with us
We are here to serve, equip and replicate for His Kingdom. We love to partner with people as led by the Lord in a simple organic way. How do we normally do that? Our ministry is relation based and centered on the Lord. We would love to get to know you, your heart’s desires, and your dreams for this aspect of ministry.
And He called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases. And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to perform healing. Luke 9:1-2
We are doing what we do because of literal a dream from the Lord many years ago after a powerful ministry time in a creative access country. He then opened many doors to partner with the people we minister with and has continued that every day to this very day. If you seek first the kingdom of God, the Lord will inspire you, direct you and resource you.
Our greatest desire is to see the kingdom of God expand doing it His way, the way he modeled for us in the New Testament. “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. ‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’” Matthew 28:19-20
We would love to partner with Jesus in your life, your future and transformation into his likeness as a Kingdom servant.
We also give seminars to equip ministries, churches and mission organizations in deep level healing and deliverance. We minister to individuals after the seminars and also give intense ministry to people at our home ministry base.

HOME SETTING FOR HEALING, DELIVERANCE AND TRANSFORMATION
The Lord spoke to Gary in a dream to establish a house of intercession and the retreat/advance center “El Faro.” The home retreat/advance center is a much sought out spiritual resource/oasis where pastors, cross cultural workers, church leaders and their families from Europe and Africa come to receive a ministry of spiritual refreshment, Biblical counseling, deep level healing prayer and deliverance as well as learn about the above.
