Craig & TC Stull
Inner Healing Counselors
“The man who died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings….
Jesus said to them, ‘Unbind him, and let him go.’” (John 11:44)
Craig Stull is a priest in the International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church (ICCEC), the Dean at The Cathedral of Christ the King Church in Selma, Alabama, headmaster of Cathedral Christian Academy at Christ the King, founder of LAZARUS Ministries, and Inner Healing Counselor with Aslan Roars.
He graduated from Troy University in 1999 with a BA in History and completed Saint Michael’s Seminary in 2001. He was ordained a deacon in 1998, ordained a priest in 2000 and installed as the Dean of the cathedral seven months afterwards.
Craig is in the healing ministry today because of the liberation and freedom he personally experienced through inner healing and deliverance. He has been involved in inner healing ministry for 23 years starting as a team leader on Lazarus Weekends at church and eventually began ministering part-time after work to people who needed inner healing sessions.
In January of 2000, he and his wife, T.C., started Lazarus Ministries, a full-time inner healing/deliverance ministry. They assist individuals in laying aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles. Part of the ministry includes biblical counseling to help people walk out their healing and lead them into greater wholeness and freedom.
Craig & T.C., along with their 3 daughters, live in Selma, AL and have been married since 1998.
I grew up in church and, like most people in the Bible belt, did the Baptist bar mitzvah (aka “walking the isle’) at the young age of ten. Even though I had an encounter, the emotions soon faded and I didn’t live for the Lord. God used many circumstances in my life, namely my father’s death, to bring me to a point of desperation which led me to fully surrender my life to Him at the age of twenty.
Immediately after my surrender, I had a real zeal in my heart to know and serve Him and I had a hunger for His word. I had never been much of a reader growing up, so as painful as it was to train my mind to read, I pressed through. Eventually, I couldn’t get enough. I was devouring scripture and reading every book I could get my hands on.
I became involved with a discipleship-based ministry called the Navigators when I was stationed in Germany with the military. They helped me lay a good evangelical foundation for my life of prayer and Bible study.
Although I was increasing in knowledge, I found that something was wrong in my inner man. I lacked joy and I struggled with depression. I really wanted to experience the abundant life of which Jesus spoke, but I did not know how to get there. So, I did the only thing I knew to do, learn more scripture. Along the way, I met a guy who had memorized the New Testament and I launched a journey to do the same. Since I believed that God spoke only through scripture, I deduced that the more of the written word I knew, the more I would be on my way to experiencing emotional freedom.
After the military, I went back to Selma and began working as a youth pastor in a local Baptist church. Eventually, I was ordained and they sent me to finish my undergraduate degree in preparation for attending seminary.
While in college, my condition seemed to worsen. I found myself with more depression and joyless living than I had ever known. A friend came to visit me and told me of the wonderful outpouring of God’s presence that was taking place at Church of the New Covenant, a small church in Selma, AL. I was so desperate for freedom that I went to visit the pastor, Chuck Jones, and he prayed for me to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. This was a new concept for me, however, I couldn’t deny that my life was beginning to radically change.
The Lord spoke to me and told me to move back to Selma. After the semester ended, I walked away from a scholarship and moved back. I became involved in the Church of the New Covenant were I experienced inner healing and deliverance that rocked my world and set me free from years of oppression. It set me on a course that forever changed my life! Now, my passion is to see the body of Christ walk in freedom and wholeness enjoying all that they possess in Christ.
