Touching Heaven - Healing Hearts 4 Day Festivals

TOP: Orphaned Heart Int'l sponsors 4 Day Regional Revival Festivals like the one shown on top every 60 to 90 days at the invitation of at least 20 participating churches that have prayed and planned with our team to do as Isaiah 61 directs. Preach the good news. Heal the broken (orphaned) hearted. Bind their Wounds (traumas). Set them free (from an Orphan Spirit). Restore their soul (Psalm 23) with Baptism and Communion.

Left: One day Pastors & Orphan Care Workers Conferences... Teaching and equipping them to minister effectively to Orphans, Widows and those afflicted by an Orphan Spirit. Also, direct ministry to teenage boys and girls (orphaned or not) teaching them the Biblical principles of a morally pure lifestyle.

A worship song written by James Burkhardt and released worldwide by SNT (Spirit and Truth) Records on August 12, 2023. 


50% of the proceeds from the digital download sales are being donated to further the work of Orphaned Heart Intl. 

A NEW SONG also serves as the ideal theme song for EMPOWERED LIVING, Orphaned Heart's radio broadcast in Nigeria. 


You can find A NEW SONG on all major digital download music distribution sites or a 24/7 worship stream that was the very first platform to play it.



The Fatherless. Foster Families. Native Americans. 

Orphaned Heart Intl is excited to be back in the USA. The new HQ is in Naples, Florida. 


The Lord has opened doors to those with Orphaned Hearts in Public K - 12 schools, Foster Care systems, Native American Tribes, Women in Medium Security Correctional facilities, Homeless Vets, and organized Recovery Groups PLUS Churches and Christian Schools across this land.


Look for a major Foster Care Conference in Des Moines, Iowa featuring Dr. John DeGarmo. Plus, several Worship Nights and a South Eastern regional Native American conference. The goal is to begin streaming all USA based Orphaned Heart Events in America over the Internet so that God's power will be displayed for the whole world to see.
