The sacrament of laying on of hands, or administration, is available to members and nonmembers alike. A person who is physically ill, emotionally strained, or sick in any other way may request administration. The purpose of this sacrament is to provide assurance of God’s care and concern and also of the church’s interest in that person.

An elder of the church will anoint the head of the person with consecrated oil. The elders then lay their hands upon the head of the person and approach God in prayer for the blessing and healing ministry of the Holy Spirit.

If you are in need of administration, please call:

High Priest Bruce Rider – 913-461-9667
High Priest Larry Winters – 816-729-8175

These numbers may be called 24/7.
