Faith-Cure & Healing Homes List
Early healing homes had their greatest influence from 1880-1915. In 1877 R. Kelso Carter mentions that there are over 30 Healing Homes that he is aware of. Except for the largest, they usually functioned as people's personal homes where those seeking healing could come and be taught and prayed for. By 1920 Paul Rader of the Christian and Missionary Alliance organization lamented most the the healing homes that had been associated with his organization had closed. Many of those who started the homes were passing away, moved on to include the Pentecostal message, or simply shifted their focus to missionary support. Most of these homes are mentioned in passing in various periodicals and no specific dates are available, although they predominantly fall into the 1880-1915 window. Several are associated with the Chrisitan and Missionary Alliance referred to here as C&MA. Please remember that in 1888, when many are mentioned in the Christian Alliance Yearbook, the Alliance was a loose inter-denominational organization which included many different types of churches. They listed these homes under the title of those having "Meetings for the Promotion of Christian Holiness and Divine Healing". A second major source is the "Triumphs of Faith" Magazine by Carrie Judd Montgomery. If the home is not listed with a particular name but only referred to as a Healing or Faith Home then we have simply listed it under the town name. Please do not assume that this was the "official name" for the home.
Those listed with *** had national or international impact.
