Mike Hutchings has 35 years of pastoral, church planting and pastoring pastors experience in a variety of church cultures including Baptist, Vineyard, Willow Creek, and Mennonite. In Peoria, Illinois, Mike partnered with the leadership team of a Transforming Revival Pastors’ Group where the city experienced significant transformation through the power of prayer and unity.
He earned a Bachelor of Arts from Judson University, a Master of Divinity in Counseling from Northern Seminary, a Doctor of Theology from Phoenix University of Theology and is currently a candidate for the Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary. The subject of his dissertation is “Treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Through Reproducible Spiritual Strategies.” His dissertation documents the many healed cases of post traumatic stress disorder (military and civilian) that Mike has personally witnessed through the power of healing prayer. He has also conducted “Healing PTSD” training seminars throughout the country. He trains prayer ministers, clergy, chaplains and counselors to utilize a healing prayer model to bring restoration to those suffering with PTSD.
Mike has worked as a licensed behavioral therapist in private practice counseling and was clinical coordinator for a counseling program serving homeless, runaway youth and their families. Mike met Randy Clark as a fellow Baptist pastor in 1983.

He is currently the Director of Education for Global Awakening, an evangelistic ministry in Mechanicsburg, PA.
