I am a teacher, speaker, and author who has been involved in public ministry since 1988. I was ordained in the Church of God in Christ in 1999. I formerly worked as an aerospace engineer and currently serve on the executive leadership team of West Angeles Church of God in Christ. I earned a Ph.D. and a M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary, a M.S. from Stanford University, and a S.B. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I teach college and seminary courses and I am actively involved in the healing ministry.
My first book was released in April 2011 and is entitled "In Pursuit of Wholeness: Experiencing God’s Salvation for the Total Person." In a nutshell, the book is about the availability of God’s power for every aspect of your life. God wants to rescue people from the things that diminish or destroy our spirits, minds, bodies, relationships, and other aspects of our humanity. Jesus came to offer salvation and healing to the total person—to restore broken individuals to a place of wholeness and well-being.
"He [God] chose me [Jesus] to tell the Good News to poor people…to proclaim freedom to captives…to help blind people see again…to lift up broken-hearted people… "(Luke 4:16-21 PEB).
"In Pursuit of Wholeness" presents definitive steps to receiving personal transformation from God in a way that is biblically sound and practically relevant. Comprehensively covered topics include:
• Adult spiritual formation.
• Biblical antidotes for anxiety.
• Today’s miracles.
• A balanced perspective of physical healing.
• Praying effectively
• Daily strategies that promote health and well-being, as well as many others.
Readers are invited to interactively participate at the end of each chapter through prayers, discussion questions, a chapter summary, and practical applications and activities related to each exciting chapter. This is one book that people will want to read from cover to cover! For ordering details, please visit my website at http://www.wilfredgraves.com.
