Rev. Wayne & Marcia McWhorter

   
The McWhorter's were called into ministry in 1978 from their careers in computers and nursing. After finishing Bible School, they returned home to the Atlanta area and reside in Lawrenceville, Ga.  Wayne and Marcia have been married for 47 years and have insights  for families as well as ministries. Together they run New Beginnings Ministries & New Beginnings Counseling Center.
  
    Our Experience Level:
  Marcia and Wayne have a heart for the training of young ministers and counselors   worldwide and the development and growth of people. They have pastored for 12 years   (Ministry Staff positions for over 25 yrs), with over 23 years in overseas missions and   worked in bible colleges for 10 years as Academic Dean and Campus Deans.  Marcia has   counseled professionally for 30 years now and is Director and supervisor of counselors   of a group counseling practice for over 15 years.

  
  The Ministry Focus:
  The ministry of New Beginnings has a threefold focus: Counseling, Mentoring and local   and overseas Missions. A major focus is to bring the power and wisdom of God’s Word   into the personal counseling arena, providing healing, restoration, growth and   equipping.

  New Beginnings Counseling Center is operated to provide compassion and Biblical   revelation to hurting people who desire it. The,second focus is to restore, train and   equip the saints for ministry by identifying and developing their gifts. This is   accomplished not only by mentoring, retreats, and seminars, but also by providing   hands on experience with local ministries and short-term mission trips.

  Third, but equally important is that of overseas missions by bringing in U.S. teams to impact and renew mission works overseas. These teams establish medical/dental clinics, give eyeglasses, provide feeding programs for the needy, support orphanages, and  church growth, evangelism, and establish Bible schools for ministry training.  We send aid in the form of medicines, medical and dental equipment when donated, eyeglasses, clothing, food,  Bibles, tracts, and help build churches and schools. The world is dying without a Savior and we want to make a  difference: A New Beginning!  In summary, we want to heal you, train you, set you on fire and then send you forth into the Lord’s harvest.
  
  Personal Testimonies:
  They believe in the miraculous power of God to transform lives, having experienced it       first hand. At the age of five, Marcia was stricken with a rare incurable blood disease   (similar to the boy in the plastic bubble) which kept her homebound and often   bedridden. At the age of ten, the doctors had predicted her death before 12 years old,  but her mother took her to a tent meeting in Marietta, Ga where she was prayed for and   miraculously healed. beginning a pathway to a worldwide vision & ministry.

   God also provided a miracle of healing to their son at the age of four raising him from a   death bed of spinal meningitis and kidney failure and restoring his life.  Through the       power of prayer, Marcia’s mother was healed of kidney stones, which had existed for six   years. Another son was totally healed and restored after a bad wreck had left him in a   wheelchair in 2001.

   While they have personally  witnessed God’s healing power, they have also learned how   to remain victorious and compassionate in the face of tragedy and loss as they   ministered to other family members with cancer and heart conditions who died.  Wayne   had cancer in 2008 and again in 2012 but is considered cancer free now. They are   learning how to rule over life rather than it rule over you!
