The Reverend Nigel Mumford is an International Speaker, Author and Founder of By His Wounds, Inc. (a 501c3 non-profit organization,) focusing on Christian healing. Nigel is also Priest Associate for Prayer Ministry, at Galilee Church in Virginia Beach, VA
Nigel was born and educated in England. He served for six and a half years in “Her Majesty’s Royal Marine Commandos”. His last two years as a Marine were spent as a drill instructor at the Commando Training School (CTCRM).
Nigel has been involved in the Healing Ministry for over 28 years. His conviction to pray for healing came in 1989 when his sister, Julie Sheldon, a ballet dancer with the Royal Ballet in London, was healed by God through the late Canon Jim Glennon. Julie had a very dramatic healing from Dystonia. Being a witness to her healing has had a profound effect on Nigel’s life.
In 2007, Nigel created WELCOME HOME INITIATIVE® services; a program of healing for veterans. This program invites men and women of our Armed Forces (from all wars), who have served in combat, to come free of charge and be “welcomed home”. His focus is on healing for post-traumatic stress and moral injury.
Nigel is a published author and all his books and CDs are available on the By His Wounds website: www.byhiswoundsministry.org (Some on Amazon or Kindle). His fifth book is This is How Your Healing Begins (Harper Collins Publishing), being published in 2020.
Nigel regularly contributes articles to the Sharing Magazine (OSL). His ministry has been reported by the New York Times as well as broadcast on CBN/700 Clun and K-Love Radio. Stories of healing through Nigel’s ministry have been published in Guideposts Magazine and an interview in Mysterious Ways. Nigel has been honored to speak at many seminaries around the United States and the United Kingdom. He has served on the Advisory Board of Christian Healing Ministries in Jacksonville, Florida (Dr. Francis and Judith MacNutt) and the Board of Directors for the Order of St Luke (OSL).
Outside the ministry, Nigel enjoys boating, writing, playing the violin and spending time with his grandchildren. He and his wife Lynn live in Virginia Beach, VA
