Interview with Randy Clark

PR: Does the way you minister healing differ from culture to culture? 

Randy Clark:

Not too much, I have to deal with liberalism and dispensationalism in North America and Europe more than other parts of the world. But, basically minister the same everywhere.

PR: You operate in the word of knowledge in conjunction with the healing ministry. Please tell our readers how you know that you are receiving a word of knowledge.

Randy Clark:

I primarily feel pain that is not mine. Secondly, I have impressions of names or conditions or numbers. And thirdly, very infrequently I have a mental picture of something or dream it.

PR: Please explain how you determine the best way to minister to a person who is in need of physical healing. 

Randy Clark:

Through the initial interview I determine if I think the root of the problem is psychosomatic and emotionally related, an afflicting spirit, genetic, life-style, or caused by an accident. Then I pray accordingly the kind of prayer most appropriate for each of these categories.

PR: What are the greatest obstacles that need be overcome in order for the ministry of healing to assume its rightful place in the church?

Randy Clark:

Primarily, bad theology needs to be replaced with good theology regarding healing. Secondly, the church needs to believe God wants to heal. Thirdly, the unbelief due to not knowing the testimonies of healings needs to be replaced with value for the testimony and understanding the purpose of words of knowledge.

PR: What characteristics are most helpful for those who desire to be involved in the ministry of healing? 

Randy Clark:

Love, compassion, grace based faith, and good theology that causes much higher expectation of healing.

PR: What advice would you give to the leadership of a local church that desires having a healing ministry? 

Randy Clark:

Build a solid biblical and theological foundation for the practice of healing. Have good models of healing prayer that foster non-hype, non-manipulation, but rather, emphasize naturally moving in the supernatural. Models based upon love, compassion, and faith. Make the opportunity for healing a natural part of the liturgy or order of worship.
