has been my privilege to know, counsel and coach Harley & Beth
Petersen. They are truly a couple who know the Lord and have
experienced the Lord's presence many times through their life.
I met them when they first started attended Christ Place
in Lincoln, Ne. in January 1995 I invited Beth to join a ladies noon
luncheon and became very acquainted with Beth.
I remember Harley & Beth accepting the position of
Leaders of the Jubilee Group (Members over 55). I had been leading the
group for a short time until someone else could take over. We had 10 to
15 people at that time and watched Harley and Beth do a tremendous job
and the result of an increase to about 75 people in the group.
I also had the privilege of helping Beth pray for healing
of her cancer in the uterus. Beth had be diagnosed by a second Dr. After
the hysterectomy. the Doctor and Lab could not find any cancer in the
uterus or in the body.. .
I was delighted to see them complete their studies of
healing and Deliverance from a Healing Ministry (the Happy Hunters,
Charles & Frances Hunter) whom I have known for many years. My
husband and I had both received healing from the Hunter's
ministering to us.
I gladly accepted their request to help them by being on their Board of Directors.
God's Blessing to all!
and I are so thankful our path has crossed with yours. In fact, we
believe it was a divine appointment. Over forty years ago, an encounter
with God changed our lives forever, and we believe He will do the same
for you. We consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to share
the truth of His life-changing power and grace with you.
Beth and I
have been called to make Disciples of all nations in teaching them all
things which God has commanded us.
We have been so Blessed
for these our board of directors. We are thankful to them and to God
for their willingness to serve. We are also Blessed with George and
Jeff. Each showed up as volunteers after our
prayers for someone like them to help this ministry grow.
saddened at our loss and joyful for Edna as she was laid to rest and
went home to be with our Lord on August 2, 2014.
Lynnette accepted an invitation to become a member of the Board of Directors for Petersen Ministries, Inc. in 2010.
is a Special Education teacher in Lincoln, Ne. She graduated from the
University of Nebraska with a degree in Special Education and
Elementary Education. She has 4 children.
has known Beth and Harley for 18 years. We have attended church and
bible studies together over the years. They have become dear friends to
Lynnette attended and received training in healing ministry from the Petersen’s.
I have come to know and love Beth and Harley and have witnessed their
love of Jesus and love for others. They are very anointed to minister
and teach healing to others. While in training, I witnessed
many healings and salvations while in their company. Beth has
received many healings alone, in her own life as a result of much
look forward to seeing their ministry continue to grow, worldwide. They
are a blessing to all who know them and the body of Christ.
Having Harley Petersen as a friend is a privilege and a pleasure.
Harley possesses an old fashioned set of values and
ethics, with honesty and integrity at its foundation. In addition
to these valuable character traits, Harley has several other important
talents and gifts that he brings to the table.
Harley's background includes being a teacher, sales person, sales
manager, and business owner. Due to a competitive nature,
whatever Harley is involved in will result in his rising to the top.
Having been a teacher, Harley has a special knack for being able
to relate to his students or audience.Harley's true understanding of
sales and his sales abilities help him to be perfectly suited to carry
out the Lord's work.
His innate ability to manage people enables him to create a team that
is pulling together in one direction.Having business acumen, Harley
certainly has an advantage when running a church.
Harley's Internet Marketing experience has added even more skills to
his arsenal. Things like copywriting, traffic creation and SEO
and much more are second nature. When it comes to creating an
Internet presence, Harley can help any church to get an upper hand.
Allow me to share a few more of Harley's traits. Harley know so
much...yet...he is avid about continually learning. Harley is
really good at whatever he does...yet...he remains humble.
Harley is one of the few that are anointed, a gift that is priceless.
May I conclude by reiterating that having Harley Petersen as a friend
is a sincere privilege and pleasure.
You tell me that you are currently seeking to lead a Church. I want to give you a bit of a boost with the following.
been a born again, spirit filled, tongue talking Christian for 33
years, I find you a talented a rarity, when it comes to sharing God's
word.We have spent many many hours via the Internet Skype sharing each
others values and concerns about where today's churches are heading by
watering down the gospel and not "Observing all my commands" as Christ
told us to.
many occasions when you have been sharing the word I have been overcome
by the Holy Spirit while listening to you. I know that the words that
are forthcoming from your mouth are truly the voice of God and you are
very reassuring in building up the God that dwells in me.
have never met any Pastor that resonates the word as you do. I think
any Church that takes you on as a Pastor or senior Pastor will be more
than happy to hear the true word God spread in their congregation.
The Church will
undoubtedly grow through your teaching the congregation about becoming
disciples of Christ and in turn spreading the word. This will lead to a
mature understanding of the word and Christ's commands, which is not
being taught in a lot of Churches today.
I know that God has great things in store for you Harley and I pray that you will ultimately end up where God wants you.
Go and dance with life on your way to heaven with love in your heart.
God bless you,
