Restoring the Foundations International

In 1992, the founders Chester and Betsy Kylstra felt encouraged to establish a covering ministry for those that would be joining them to bring healing to the body of Christ. In the years that followed, the healing initiative became known as Restoring the Foundations (RTF). By 2000, over sixteen ministers and trainers, as well as office staff, were working with the Kylstra’s.

In January, 2001, the RTF Healing House Network was established as the new covering membership organization for qualified professional ministry teams. The Healing House Network provides a nationwide and international referral center for individuals and couples to receive personal ministry. As well, Healing House Network trainers provide quality training and oversight to help others to become qualified to bring healing to the body of Christ. They work with local churches, communities, and the various RTF training centers.

Since then, Restoring the Foundations International has continued to develop comprehensive training programs, numerous seminars, conferences, and specialized topics classes to equip others in ministry.

Restoring the Foundations has many venues. Our Healing House Network has ministry teams located throughout the world. In addition, there are many churches which provide RTF ministry. Restoring the Foundations International makes its home in a turn-of-the-century bed and breakfast nestled in the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Echo Mountain Inn, which serves the public as a bed and breakfast and also serves as a center for personal ministry, conferences, seminars, and in-depth ministry training.
