RAPHA (Hebrew): to repair, restore, make whole.
Rapha is not just about healing… this journey is about becoming whole. God promises that He can bring lasting wholeness in every area of our lives, transforming us from our inner spirit outward. It is up to each of us to decide if we will partner with Him to become more of the true person we are created to be.

Scripture is full of examples of healing and redemption. And the church has many stories of remarkably changed lives. But what about us and those around us? Is there really a journey we can follow ourselves, and offer to others, that makes such experiences real in our day-to-day life?
We are all hungry for authentic responses in times of crisis and need. We are looking for the reality of a God who loves, who can make a difference, who can be deeply worshipped.
In this workshop, Pastors Peter Holmes and Susan Williams will set out a Biblical and therapeutic framework for a life-changing discipleship journey that is open to all. Starting with Ex 15:26, Jehovah Rapha, this workshop will help you learn how to bring change in the spiritual and relational landscapes we are all part of and offer practical steps to get started. We will also hear testimonies from those who have found healing they never dreamt possible. This workshop is for everyone – those that are new to Rapha and those that have been around awhile.
By the end of the workshop you will have had the opportunity to:
- Gain a solid understanding about what Rapha is and why we are so different from other discipleship and therapeutic models
- Hear lots of testimonies so you can see the evidence of the journey
- Leave with a greater understanding of the realty of the spiritual world.
- Learn practical steps and tools about where and how to start this type of journey
- Understand the significance of doing this journey within a community
Rapha Community Evening
Rapha is the Hebrew word for healing and wholeness. In our community we enjoy authentic relationships where its safe to be honest about where you are at. We share journeying together to pursue who God created us to be. We seek to reach out and welcome those who have need, whether historic or current. We share a meal, worship, testimonies of God breaking through and have a devotional. We are kid-friendly, and welcome those who aren’t in a current relationship with the Lord. Some of our community also meet in groups during the week to journey together.
We meet primarily at 4566 Cascade Street in Bozeman one Friday per month at 6pm. We keep people updated on the exact date and location each month by email. If you are interested in getting on our email list, please contact Jeni at email@example.com or 406-577-1740.
Our next gatherings are:
- Friday, February 15th at Connie Summers’ home [4566 Cascade Ave in Bozeman].

Join us the first Thursday of each month from 6:30-8:30pm at The Commons where the Rapha Women’s Leadership Team will be creating space for us to meet each other and meet with God. The focus of our evening varies. You can expect a mixture that might include: testimonies, worship, fellowship, table discussions, Q&A panels, reflective time with God, etc. We focus on encouraging authentic relationships, talking honestly together, and sharing tools for journeying into greater wholeness and deeper relationship with God.
If you have not been to a Rapha event this is the perfect place for you to come and meet those who are part of this ministry. All women are welcome!
Our next Women’s Evening is Thursday, March 7th.
