“Steve’s ministry has changed my personal and ministry life. He has created a very practical approach to a joy filled and victorious Christian life. Many people teach and write, but few actually change the way we live! This will change your personal, ministry and organizational life by the simple exposing of lies and releasing the Kingdom over them.”

“Steve Backlund is known for his wisdom and practical insights on “how to do life.” The students in our ministry school, Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, love him because he always leaves them encouraged and refreshed in their vision. He has an unusual gift to take the mundane and make it exciting and to take the familiar and make it new.”

“In these twelve weeks, I have gone from starting a class based on hearing an audible word to being offered a pastoral role in an online ministry! I would likely have shied away from had I not stepped into this course. I am growing at an exponential rate. I have held leadership roles in the secular world for many years, I felt both called and comfortable as a leader, yet I had not previously even contemplated ministry or a leadership role in the church”

“During this course I have learnt, to an even greater level, how to honor my own leaders. I have found it very challenging in the past. However, I have decided to choose high beliefs about my leaders and I pray blessings, wisdom and protection upon them everyday. Keeping high beliefs about our leaders has been a real turning point in my life. This has been another key in my journey to healing and wholeness. I feel excited about what is to come.”

“This course has has helped me to identify the lies I was believing in various areas of my life and helped me to thrive in those areas. I always thought I am not a people person and would avoid interaction and just focus getting things done. I am now out of it and now more intentional with people.”
