Our Presenters

Padre Paul along with Rev Robert Bearden and Rev Dana Duryea from San Francisco will be joining. We can't wait for you to experince these encounters "first hand" as we pray for everyone for healing, restoration and awakening; getting rid of depression, suicidal thoughts, cancers and diseases.


Padre Paul Funfsinn

Padre Paul FunfsinnPaul is co-founder of Celebrating Life Ministries with Ron Roth. Paul has a presence and power that moves people to tears when they are near him because of his relationship with the Divine. Experience his Love of the Father and Divine Mother and then watch your spiritual gifts begin to manifest in your own innate healing gifts. Leading prayer & healing services is his strength where signs and wonders follow.

Padre Paul has studied and worked along side of his spiritual mentor, Ron Roth, for over twenty-eight years until his passing. Paul now assumes the role of Spiritual Shepherd of Celebrating Life Ministries and continues to honor the healing legacy of Ron Roth. At this Four Day Healing Retreat, Padre Paul will share healing stories of how God has used him to "heal the sick" and "set people free" from oppression and negative energies.  He will lead participants on this inner healing journey in finding where Heaven illuminates the Earth.

Come and let your hearts be set aflame with love!

What others have said...

  • "The Spring Retreat was a moving, heart-filling, life changing event this past weekend. Thank you! Thank you!"

  • "I feel my personal connection with God so strongly again. I feel him flowing through me and in me and as me and as the world and everyone else. My heart is open to God again and I am in a flow of his love. When I pause and revel in His presence I find myself smiling and laughing for no reason. At the retreat I was able to sing again like my young self, ecstatically praising Him and loving him. My body was moved by Him and I wanted to cry from joy many times."

  • "It was an incredible 4 days! You probably don’t remember, with everyone leaving at the time, but I shared with you that it had a profound effect on me. I have indeed been able to return to “stillness” and sit with the Divine… MUCH more easily than prior to the Retreat and also really have internalized Jesus… much closer … a true friend. Thank you, thank you!"

  • "The first night of the retreat you talked about being broken in order to be rebuilt by the Holy Spirit. Both my brother and I were amongst the first to be called up to receive a blessing.  Somehow we ended up standing next to each other, both of us in a bit of a daze and neither of us knowing what to expect.  I remember holding onto his hand, my eyes closed. When you came to me, you said something like,  "Let go of his hand.  We come as individuals, not to carry our family.  Surrender, let it be."  I began sobbing and shaking, because some of my biggest fears are around separation, responsibility for my loved ones and potentially losing them as I continue on my spiritual path.  When you asked me to let go, I fell to the floor in tears and couldn't move my body for quite some time. After the retreat, upon returning home I noticed that my "normal" triggers weren't lighting me up.  I was also aware of an increase in the flow of love between myself, my children and my husband.  Today Divine Presence is with me at work.  I learned that God is good, that he is everywhere and that he truly wants what is best for each of us."

  • "I experienced a feeling of Love for God and Self that was stronger than anything else/all secondary relationships, and this Love is getting stronger.  It was the first time I experienced such a palpable feeling that had such strength, knowingness and grace with it, that I know that I am fully supported in my journey of living centered in my relationship with God. I love witnessing how God works in such playful and unexpected ways, yet always hearing us as we are learning to better hear Him/Her.  I learned that just being Me is enough, and that is my service."
