Lazarus Ministries International/TMMC is open to all who are seeking freedom from destructive spiritual influences and for those who want to strengthen their Christian walk and discover greater intimacy with Christ.


Michael Cannatello founder and president of Lazarus Ministries, grew up in a loving Italian, Catholic family in Brooklyn NY. Michael was molested as a little boy and then suffered years of continued sexual abuse. He later entered into a lifestyle of homosexuality, alcohol and drug abuse that lasted for decades.

The years of abuse to his body brought on liver and heart disease and many other life threatening diseases, one of them being HIV. To survive he needed a multitude of medications and he eventually lost his business and became homeless and was admitted to a psychiatric ward due to schizophrenia. At death’s doorstep and at the end of his rope, Michael encountered God in a life changing way. Crying out to God in desperation, the Lord spoke to him through His word directing him to a passage in Jeremiah 30:12-17 where it said “I will heal you of your wounds and cure you of your incurable diseases.”

He was supernaturally healed from many of his diseases over a period of time and was released from his homosexual lifestyle that had him bound. He was also set free from years of bondage to drugs. He then began to receive physical strength and over time he was delivered from tormenting spirits through confession, repentance and spiritual warfare.

Because of God’s redemptive grace for him, Michael, in his own freedom was open to God’s call to begin Lazarus Ministries for the freedom of others. Michael is available to minister and teach in churches and conferences. His anointing is for group deliverance and He is an anointed vocalist as well. Michael welcomes the opportunity to teach and minister corporately in your church or group.

If you need freedom from strongholds such as anxiety, guilt, anger, phobias, adultery, abuse, sickness, pain, terror, allergies, sexual perversion, drug or alcohol addiction, or, if you are plagued by some of the more common areas of bondage like: fear, rejection, bitterness, abandonment or sexual abuse; Lazarus Ministries can teach you to obtain freedom in Christ through deliverance.

How we offer help is through our 5 day freedom seminar as well as on Tuesday nights at our weekly meeting. Lazarus Ministries’ 5 day seminar takes place twice a year if you are in need of freedom. The dates will be posted on our events page at lazarusministry.com.

We meet every Tuesday night at 7P.M. asa fellowship to worship Jesus, be taught God’s word and be set free. If you have no home church and would like to be part of a loving, caring and powerful group, then come join us! Even if you have a home home church, we meet on Tuesday nights so that people are free to attend their local church on the weekend. We would love to have you become part of our ministry family!

Lazarus Ministries does not offer one-on-one deliverance. If you require a private setting, we can recommend other ministries we’ve used and who are professionally trained to help you. The anointing that God has placed upon Pastor Michael is in corporate or group settings using God’s word and powerful corporate declarative prayers. We have seen thousands of people over the years be set free by the power of Jesus.
