About The Event

An overflow of the Encounter School of Ministry, Encounter Ministries seeks to partner with local parishes and ministries to host a weekend Encounter School of Healing.  Healing is Jesus’ idea.  It was essential to the effective proclamation of the Gospel during Jesus’ ministry and we are convinced it is one of the missing components to the effective New Evangelization of our nation.  This page provides essential information for Church’s and organizations interested in partnering with us.

Dr. Kerry McMahon

Dr. Kerry McMahon is a high-risk obstetrician at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Tacoma, who works with women and babies with medical complications.

Prior to becoming a physician, she was an elementary school teacher for six years. She is an experienced retreat speaker and lives her faith beautifully! Kerry loves mission work and teaching. She is a natural storyteller who demonstrates and carries a contagious joy.

She has worked extensively in the healing ministry for the last 15 years including with Encounter Ministries both on School of Healing weekends and as an instructor at the Seattle Campus. She co-founded WWCCR’s Dwelling Place healing night.

Fr. Diogo Escudero

Fr Diogo Augustine Escudero is a Capuchin Franciscan friar from Brazil currently serving the Brazilian and Portuguese communities in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. During his diaconate and early years of priesthood, the Lord introduced him to deliverance ministry, where Fr Diogo witnessed over and over again the power of the Holy Spirit to heal broken hearts and set the captives free. While reading Damian Stayne’s book Lord Renew Your Wonders, Fr. Diogo began witnessing the Lord healing people physically, which completely changed his life and worldview. Now, as a graduate of Encounter School of Ministry, one of his greatest joys as a priest is to give witness to the love and power of the Lord Jesus while teaching and equipping others to do the same.
