Rev. Nigel Mumford
Rev. Nigel Mumford is an international speaker, author, and founder of By His Wounds, a ministry committed to restoring the healing gifts of Jesus Christ.
Rev. Mumford 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.
In 1980, Rev. Mumford came to the United States and set up a picture framing business in Connecticut. 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. Sheldon had a very dramatic healing from dystonia, a severe neurological condition that curled her up into a fetal position and left her very close to death. Being a witness to her healing has had a profound effect on Rev. Mumford’s life. In 1995, he sold his business and has since dedicated his life to the ministry of healing.
From 1996 to 2004, Rev. Mumford was the director of the Oratory of the Little Way, a healing retreat center in Connecticut. In 2004, at the invitation of the bishops of Albany Episcopal Diocese, Rev. Mumford became the director of the Healing Ministry at Christ the King Spiritual Life Center in Greenwich, New York. In December of 2005, he was ordained into the Episcopal Church by Bishop Daniel Herzog. Rev. Mumford and his wife, Lynn, were a part of creating the healing ministry there for nine and a half years.
Rev. Mumford’s compassion for combat veterans evolved from his experience of being in combat with the Royal Marines. His belief is that the healing grace of Jesus Christ can help those men and women who suffer in silence with combat-related post-traumatic stress syndrome.
