Rev. John Rice

In 2012, Rev. John Rice felt the Spirit's leading to retire from 24 years of parish ministry in order to have more time and energy for his heart's desire, "to encourage, equip, and empower God's people for Jesus' healing ministry."  The Lord has blessed his ministry through many invitations from churches and healing groups throughout the United States to teach and equip others in ways of praying for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.

John and his wife Debra recently moved into their new home just outside Burnsville, North Carolina, where he's been turning an old potato patch into Mountain View Flower farm.  A little fishing and being 'Poppi' to two beautiful granddaughters keep him well occupied when home.
