How it Began

J. Rapha Consulting began in Samantha's heart in April 2017 when the Lord asked her, "Are you willing to give up everything you think you know about me to find out who I really am?" After decades of trauma she surrendered to the Lord and decided to follow His ways in all things. In three years, she became a trauma counselor to help others on their healing journey.

Jennifer's heart for healing blossomed in 2015 when she experienced the healing power of Jesus Christ and began leading Genesis Process healing groups to lead people to the Healer.

The two met in 2022 and a friendship quickly formed. With a passion for Jesus Christ and a desire to see people experience the holistic healing they live every day, they decided to form an organization dedicated to healing by encountering and following the God who heals, Jehovah Rapha. 

Who is J. Rapha?


J. Rapha stands for Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals. It comes from the story of a group of people, Israelites, who left slavery in Egypt for an unknown Promised Land led by a man named Moses.


After nearly three days without water, they came to a pool of bitter water they couldn't drink. The Israelites complained against Moses who cried out to the Lord on their behalf, and the Lord answered. He told Moses to throw a log into the bitter water, which would turn the water sweet, making it drinkable.

Sometimes the path to healing and life looks different than we expect. If we're willing to try, He can do miracles.

Moses did what he was told, and the water became drinkable. God said to Moses and the people, "If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer." (Exodus 15:26, ESV).

At J. Rapha, we look to Jehovah Rapha as the Healer, who is represented perfectly in the person of Jesus Christ. By His stripes, we are healed (1 Peter 2:24).
