RTF LogoBonnie and Russell are members of the  Healing House® Network with  Restoring the Foundations - 

Restoring The Foundations is a ministry to people who are desiring to walk closer to God and desiring to be who God created them to be. RTF is a sanctification ministry, a healing ministry and a deliverance ministry all rolled into one. RTF appropriates all that Jesus accomplished on the Cross to make it active and vital in a person's life. 

  • We lead  Healing and Deliverance Seminars as well as Issue Focus Activation Seminars. This allows us to go to local churches or ministry setttings to train and equip people to be Issue Focus Ministers at the Local Church or Regional Healing House level.

There are two types of ministry available. The first is the Issue Focused Ministry (IFM). An IFM is one session lasting approximately three hours ministering to a single issue in a person's life. The Ministry Receiver is asked to fill out the Personal Questionnaire and email to us a week prior to their session.

The second type of ministry is a Thorough Format Ministry (TFM) to go deeper by ministering to several issues in an individual or a couple's lives. Generally with a TFM there are 5 sessions for a single person and 12 sessions for a couple [1 joint session at the beginning of ministry and 1 at the end of ministry, and 5 individual sessions for each spouse], all of which are approximately 3 hours long. The individual(s) fills out the My Story Application and is asked to email it to us one week prior to their first session.

Individuals generally can receive the ministry in a concentrated 2 1/2 days or a session a day for 5 days. Couples generally take 5 to 6 days of ministry with each spouse having a session a day.

The RTF ministers can make no guarantee of any specific healing or deliverance. The walking out of the healing received is entirely the responsibility of the ministry receiver.

Detailed Approach

Restoring the Foundations uses an integrated approach that addresses the following four interrelated foundational areas that affect each of us.

1. Sins of the Fathers & Resulting Curses
This problem is rooted in the second commandment (Ex. 20:3-6), in which God visits the iniquities of the fathers upon the children up to the third and fourth generations. God requires us to confess our ancestors sin as well as our own (Lev. 26:40). We focus on the confession of sin (I John 1:9) and the appropriation of Christs finished work on the Cross to break curses (Gal. 3:13) and recover legal ground from the enemy (Col. 2:14).

2. Ungodly Beliefs
All of us have formed ungodly beliefs from life's circumstances, including ones we have inherited from our ancestors (i.e., our parents and grandparents). These Ungodly Beliefs need to be changed into Godly Beliefs. This can be accomplished through a procedure of repentance and renewing your mind (Rom. 12:2).

3. Soul/Spirit Hurts
Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted (Luke 4:18). He heals the hurts of our soul and spirit as we "Wait on the Lord with Listening Prayer". He shows us what He wants to heal, and then He heals what He has shown.

4. Demonic Oppression
The Ministry Receiver has co-labored with Christ to bring freedom and healing as s/he take back the legal ground that has been lost in the first three ministry areas of their life. The various demonic strongholds oppressing the Receiver can be disassembled and destroyed (Mark 16:17).

Before coming for ministry, it is highly recommended each Individual/Couple purchase the Ministry Receiver's Packet from the Online Store at RTF by clicking  HERE. Each person will position themselves to receive their greatest healing by reading the recommended pages in "The Restoring the Foundations Book" and by listening to the 3 CDs which are all in the packet. 

The cost of Thorough Format Ministry for a single person is $1,250.00. The cost for a couple is $2,450.00. The fee includes having two trained ministers in each 3 hour session and additional time for the minister's preparation outside the sessions. 

An Issue Focus Session is offered in a three hour session for $250.

The RTF ministry was developed by Chester and Betsy Kylstra. The Kylstras are RTF Ambassadors. Lee and Cindi Whitman are the Executive Directors of RTF and the Healing House ® Network, the covering membership organization for the many qualified RTF Ministry Teams ministering at the Healing House ® level of professionalism. This network is providing quality RTF personal ministry for individuals and couples, training and oversight, as well as functioning as a nationwide and international training and referral center.
