'The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free'' (Luke 4:18 NIV)
FLTM is not a church but rather a ministry and discipleship training center for healing & deliverance. We believe that it is God's intent for His people to be made whole and free of bondage, sickness and confusion forever! We desire to see each person totally set free and walking toward the divine destiny that our Father God has set before them! We also offer pre-marital classes and are soon to be certified as facilitators of the "Prepare-Enrich" assessment for engaged and newlywed couples.
Sam Thornton is a licensed prayer minister and Norma an ordained deliverance minister. We currently have four board members and several advisors and are under prayer covering of our local church in Fort Worth, Texas. Sam and Norma have both been involved in leadership at several churches and have been previously employed by two International Ministries.
First Love Transformation Ministries, formerly Jeremiah 29:11 Ministries, was birthed by the Holy Spirit in Norma's heart in 1999 and became an official ministry to women in May of 2011. Norma has been involved in deliverance ministry and has been ministering to hurting women alongside several individuals since about 1983. God has also given her husband, Sam, a heart to minister to and encourage men who are recovering from sexual addiction, couples dealing with marital issues and to provide pre-marital counseling.
In 2014 the Holy Spirit confirmed through several prophetic words that Sam was to partner with Norma in the ministry to hurting people. They were given specific instructions by the Holy Spirit to minister healing and deliverance to those who 'have lost their first love'. Thus, First Love Transformation Ministries was formed in early 2015.
We, First Love Transformation Ministries, invite those of you who need healing and deliverance to participate in a journey of refocusing on God and finding true purpose in your lives through Him.
