Jansen Bagwell, is a former protestant pastor and convert to the Catholic faith who has been working in the area of deliverance for over 30 years. His personal studies on spiritual warfare and protection led him to explore the writings of the early church fathers and the teachings of the Catholic church, where he discovered the healing power of the Sacraments. Jansen holds degrees in Biblical Theology, Counseling, and in the area of Religion, Spirituality and Health. This formal education, combined with decades of experience, led Jansen to develop the transformational change process of Discipleship Deliverance. Discipleship Deliverance combines Biblical truths and Church teachings to provide a solid and practical methodology for the ministry of deliverance. It’s designed to help participants examine their own life and teach them how to effectively apply spiritual principles in a way that brings about healing and growth. Jansen’s passion is to see people experience freedom and wholeness, so they can function fully in their vocation and charisms to build the Kingdom of God.
