2 Basic Information Sheet What is Unbound? Unbound Prayer applies the Gospel of Jesus to your story with five simple keys. Unbound Ministry is an approach to deliverance and healing prayer developed by Neal Lozano. The focus of the Unbound model is on an individual as you deeply listen to their story and heart. Unbound is a safe, loving, effective prayer model that helps people to respond to the good news of the gospel. Unbound teaches how to listen and respond in Five Key areas as you seek greater freedom and how to help others do the same. Each key incorporates practical direction on how to respond to the grace that unlocks the door and sets us free. Who is Neal Lozano? Neal serves as the Executive Director of Heart of the Father Ministries and the Unbound ministry efforts. Neal Lozano has more that thirty years pastoral experience helping people find freedom in Jesus Christ and holds a master s degree in religious education. He is the author of the best-selling book, Unbound: A Practical Guide to Deliverance. He is an international speaker and has spoken at various global conferences. Neal holds a master s degree in religious education from Villanova University, where he has also led an evangelistic outreach to students Neal, a Roman Catholic, is also the senior coordinator of the House of God s Light, an interdenominational Christian Community that he has pastored for thirty-five years. What is Unbound-Michigan? Unbound-Michigan is a network of prayer ministers trained in using Neal Lozano's five keys to freedom. Our mission is to widen this network so that everyone in Michigan who wants prayer for more freedom can receive it. To this end, we share the message of liberation. We provide simple training for everyone who hears this message basic spiritual first aid, so that they are equipped them to use the five keys for themselves and others. We offer more in-depth training for those who want to commit more seriously to this mission of mercy, whether in collaboration with us or in another setting. Finally, we work together with local parishes and dioceses to develop local Unbound-Michigan teams. Currently, we offer prayer ministry in lower Michigan almost every day of the week. When we pray with people using the five keys to freedom developed by Neal Lozano, we are faithful to the Unbound model and follow the Lozanos' guidelines for using the name "Unbound." We enjoy a cooperative relationship with the Lozanos and Heart of the Father ministries, and our leaders have received training from them, but we are not official representatives or an arm of their ministry. Unbound-Michigan operates under the pastoral oversight of the Catholic church and our members are primarily Catholics, although we welcome cooperation with Christians of other denominations. Deliverance is a good word!" Neil Lozano, author of Unbound: A Practical Guide to Deliverance Most people misunderstand deliverance. They think that it s only for possessed individuals. It s not. They think that it can only be done by a trained and appointed exorcist. Not true. Others believe that deliverance is something only for charismatics, or that it s necessarily frightening. Absolutely unnecessary. Still others confuse deliverance with emotional or mental healing. Deliverance does closely align with healing. For the greatest healing of all is healing from sin and from its inevitable outcomes: misery, destruction, death. But deliverance is not the same thing as healing. Deliverance ministry simply addresses the reality of spiritual warfare in every human life. The devil s evil influence ranges from temptation to harassment to oppression to possession. Yet Christians, while subject to the Satan s constant opposition, can never be overpowered by the enemy; he can only gain power in their lives to the degree that they open doors to his work.

How does Satan gain power in our lives? living in fear believing lies engaging in sin refusing to forgive forming unholy ties or attachments cutting off from community or rightful authority approaching the occult with fear or fascination. putting other things in place of God to give life meaning Deliverance is about belonging completely to God and nothing else. Deliverance ministry closes these doors and releases people to live freely, secure in their identity as God s beloved children, dedicated to His purpose for their lives.
