Redeemed Lives International (RLI) offers a variety of outreaches, all of which bring people into the healing and saving embrace of Jesus Christ. We have conferences designed as pastoral healing missions for churches and equipping seminars for training Christian leaders.
Below you will find a brief description of the content of our various conference offerings. If you would like information about hosting a conference, please Contact Us.
For churches and ministries, we offer three different weekend conferences, which includes Fr. Mario’s testimony of finding freedom from unwanted same-sex attractions and freedom for marriage and family.
Setting Love In Order
A Weekend Conference for Churches
The need for healing is often the need for reordering love. In this seminar we will draw near to God, as He has drawn near to us in Christ Jesus. There, in His presence, we can lift up our hearts to His love and truth. Through worship, teaching and healing prayer we shall receive from Jesus His healing touch that brings the cure to the soul that sets love in order. Lectures include: The Presence Of God With Us and Within Us, The Holy Christian Imagination, The Sense of Being and The Healing Of Memories. This conference begins on a Friday night and ends on Saturday before dinner. Fr. Mario has given this conference throughout the USA and Europe.
The Shepherd’s Voice
A Day-Retreat for Churches
Using the Bible as the basis for hearing God, this seminar explores the age-old discipline of lectio divina, praying the Holy Scriptures. Fr. Mario draws from Dallas Willard’s book Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God, and uses the five different types of prayer (praise, thanksgiving, intercession, petition and forgiveness) contained within the Lord’s Prayer as a model of speaking with God. Other prayer exercises include listening for the healing word, bringing up desires of the heart and applying forgiveness. We provide a companion workbook that contains lecture notes as well as worksheets for the various prayer exercises conducted throughout the day. This seminar occupies one day, from 9am-5pm with a lunch break.
Burning Hearts and Opened Eyes
A Sermon On Following Jesus While Leaving Homosexuality
Fr. Mario weaves his testimony of coming out of homosexuality into an exegetical sermon on the road to Emmaus narrative found in Luke 24:13-34. It illustrates how God reveals His Son Jesus to us through His Presence coming alongside us, the Scriptures and the Lord’s Supper. Mario has given this sermon in numerous churches including St. Aldate’s in Oxford, England; St. Francis Chapel, Kampala, Uganda; South Shore Community Church in Boston; and Church of the Resurrection in Wheaton.
Equipping Seminar to Use the RLI Pastoral Courses
