“Father, am I your friend?”
This is a profound question for the believer. How can I know if I am Father’s friend? Do I have to hear his voice from a cloud declaring such? Are my shortcomings an impediment to friendship with Abba? Is it even possible to be regarded as his friend, and not just his son or daughter? Join Steve as he explores the Father’s heart and learn that what matters is Abba’s opinion, not our own perceptions. He calls you his friend, because Jesus has done so. The desire of Jesus and the Father is to “take up residence” with those who love them, with the obvious implication of entwinement of their hearts with the believer. It will not change reality if you claim to be unqualified to be Father’s friend. Your desire for entwinement of your heart with his (e.g., your love for him!) is sufficient, and it trumps all your imperfections that you might list for disqualification. Get ready to enjoy the delicious fruit of friendship with the Father!

When God called Steve Trullinger into healing ministry in 1995, he was at that time an Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Steve already knew that he would be trading his secure, tenured academic position for a faith-walk of adventure, trusting in the Lord’s design for the second half of his life. His twenty-five years as an educator and researcher helped prepare him to train healing and evangelistic mission teams and to help many to understand the synergisms of spiritual gifts in the ministries of healing and evangelism.
Late in 2000, Steve founded The Father’s Touch Ministries, based in California, and has helped to launch and direct many healing teams of volunteers in North America, as well as lead over 20 short term mission teams focused on healing and evangelism in East Africa. These teams have been blessed to lead several tens of thousands to Christ and bring the Father’s healing touch to many thousands of sick in hospitals, villages, slums, and Freedom Festival crowds. One of Steve’s favorite pastimes is to help his team members get “wrecked beyond recognition!”
