Silver Lion Ministries was incorporated in March 2004 in the province of Manitoba, Canada, after a 10-year process of prayer and preparation. Gerry Loewen, founder of Silver Lion Ministries, Inc., had been in the counseling ministry since 1995, but as time passed, he became aware that the Lord wanted him to minister to a much larger group of hurting people. In 2001, the Lord spoke to Gerry's wife Carolyn about many people being healed and blessed through a more public outreach to the hurting. Through many hours in prayer together, the couple came to realize that the Lord desired for them to establish this organization, and they felt the Lord spoke to them the names of their first directors.

“It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:11-13)

Meanwhile, Gerry's long-time friend Scott Miller had also been hearing from the Lord about establishing a ministry to help bring healing to men whose children had been aborted. Scott asked Gerry & Carolyn to join him in this ministry, and the Lord revealed to them very clearly that they were to come alongside him. Thus, House of Esau Ministries was born. The individual ministries that you see on this website are a result of the prayers, preparation and passion of many individuals dedicated to serving the Lord and helping Him bring restoration to hurting people. Each one is a work in progress, as they await the Lord's guidance for the next steps they are to take in each ministry.
