Lazarus Ministries International 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 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 sexual brokenness, alcohol and drug abuse that lasted for decades.

The years of abuse to his body brought on many 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 restore you back to health.”

Over a period of time and was released from his lifestyle of sexual brokenness that had him bound. He was also set free from years of bondage to drugs. He then began to receive freedom 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.

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.

We meet every Tuesday night at 7 P.M. as a fellowship to worship Jesus, be taught God’s word and be set free.
