J.R. GURLEY, HEALING EVANGELIST, FEATURED FRONTPAGEIn the premier issue of X-Ray (See beyond the surface) Magazine, Oct/Nov 2005* edition (Taking Your Place in the Kingdom), our good friend, J.R. Gurley was front page material, as he was the lead interview by that magazine's staff.The picture you view here is from that magazine (pg.22).* Rev. Gurley was licensed to the ministry by Oliver Evangelistic Assoc. three years ago and has been the joy of our hearts since first we met.He is college and career pastor for the World Outreach Worship Center in Newport News, Va.We can't say enough good things about this man of God.Though young in years, he exceeds many an elder in spiritual wisdom.This featurette does not intend to re-capture the article in the magazine, but does intend to highly recommend his ministry to any and all who would read this report.J.R. Gurley believes in the Zadok life.He teaches Sons of Zadok to his staff of interns and requires those who are discipled by him to have read the text-To God Be the Glory!J.R. Gurley's anointing was apparent in his teen years, but his life was completely changed, re-arranged and given direction because of two events: a massive car wreck, which took the life of his two best friends and a personal confrontation by the Living God.The wreck:After a brief ambulance ride, he came to himself in a hospital, where doctors gave him only hours to live.His mother's bedside faith prophesied he would not die.Following days of struggle for his life, he awoke to find himself unable to move his shredded hands, unable to speak because nine places were wired together to resemble a jaw and manifesting little evidence of hearing. (Without recapping all the sequential events, it suffices to say he received Divine Healing first hand.) Hospital staff, doctors and preachers could not believe the recovery and miracles that attended him.Gurley put together a team of four young people and traveled to Puerto Rico, without knowing where he was going or what he would accomplish in the mission task.God led him step by step and the miracles of healing and salvation began at this point.He came to know who he was and whose he was in this field.Manifestation of Tongues:Not knowing Spanish, he was led to preach in tongues and later was told it was perfect Spanish.A lady, who came forth to receive prayer.Surrounded by hundreds who were overcome by the Spirit and lying slain all around, the woman addressed J.R. in Spanish (which he could not understand).She was terminally ill with cancer and because of her illness, her husband had abandoned her.J.R. tells the story better than I, but in essence, Gurley spoke to her through tongues in Spanish.He told her, according to the elders in the church, that she would be healed of cancer and receive her family in that very moment.She fell, praising God and was healed.It was discovered that the man who rushed to her side was her husband, whom she had not seen in months.Incidences such as this continually characterize the life and ministry of J.R. and attest to his walk in holiness and righteousness.Walking in the Spirit in Newport News: It was in the church at Newport News that I first laid eyes upon this young man and instantly, I knew some of the things God was going to accomplish through him.God gave prophetic words and many manifestations to attest His anointing.At age 24, J.R. Gurley manifests the meekness of Moses.Often he reports to this ministry, including his travel into the mountainous areas of Virginia and West Virginia.Led by the Spirit, he has been led by the Spirit to gathering that he did not know were going on and the Spirit of God would call him forth to minister in power-sometimes causing him to remain for days instead of passing through. Paul said, "The kingdom of God is not in word but in power!"Now my message is hey, God healed me: I know He can heal you.Hey, God saved me; I know He can save you.One of the chief aims of Gurley is to have a training college, where he is able to train young people.He wants to equip them in a way no Bible School or Seminary is able.Believing these are the very last of the last days, Gurley asserts: "We are not the church of tomorrow, we are the church of today (speaking of this generation of young people)."He declared the need for youth to learn that: He (God) is not a million miles away.He's an 'Amen' or a 'Praise God' or a 'Hallelujah' away.Once we begin to understand who He is, then we'll begin to understand who we are in Him.And we will learn quickly that nothing is impossible Nothing!All things are possible to those that believe Him. - Page 28, X-Ray Interview *Confident that Christendom is on the edge of the greatest battle for faith since the beginning of time, Gurley says: Pray for this young man of God; spend a moment and write J. R. Gurley a word of encouragement, his email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.Better yet, invite him to your fellowship, your church, your convention---we love this brother and he is always welcome here.
