In August of 2000, twelve members of Newark Christian Fellowship traveled to Spokane, Washington to receive training in the Healing Rooms model. From October of that year, three of these twelve, Pastor Bruce Latshaw, Rev. Maria DeShields, and Mr. Larry Field envisioned, planned, and administered the Healing Rooms of Wilmington. Training of ministry team members from local churches began in 2001 and the Healing Rooms of Wilmington opened its doors on April 18, 2001. In 2002, Pastor Chuck Williams began serving as executive director of the Healing Rooms Of Wilmington.
