Bobbie Mohler joined LifeTouch in September of 2006. She is the Director of Lay Counseling Ministries. Well known in our community as a lay leader and mentor to women, Bobbie is a much respected and gracious part of our team. Her heart’s desire is to help the heartbroken and to be an instrument used by God to aid in healing and wholeness. She has observed 1000 hours of counseling at LifeTouch Ministry.

Bobbie is also the Conference and Event Liaison and personal assistant to our director both at home and when traveling for speaking engagements. She is also an excellent teacher and group leader. She is excited to help others find and deepen their walk with the Lord as they learn to identify and untangle the cords that bind their lives.
Carol Wieland is an integral part of LifeTouch. As Director of Prayer Ministry, she is a true example of what it means to “embody” the vision here. She has been working with clients in prayer ministry at LifeTouch for 5 years and took on an even more significant roll in the summer of 2007. A class called The Shepherd’s School of Healing Prayer was taught by Carol. As a result of this training, a team of intercessors meet weekly to lift up to The Lord the needs of our clients and staff. The ministry is immeasurable benefiting from their time at the throne of God.
Led by Carol, this is the first phase of an initiative to create a prayer ministry team that will reach out to those who submit needs in our community. Carol is a model of spiritual maturity for the staff and those she serves in ministry. Her deep and loving dependence on Christ is seen through her love, sensitivity and generosity and passionate prayers.
