The Aldersgate conference is a yearly, family event held by Aldersgate Renewal Ministries. ARM encourages dialogue within the United Methodist Church and seeks to interpret the movement of the Holy Spirit to the rest of the church, and the rest of the church to the renewal movement. We celebrate the richness of our Wesleyan heritage and history, recognizing that John Wesley's theology of grace is in fact a theology of the Holy Spirit. To learn more about Aldersgate Renewal Ministries, please visit our main website.
Each year, Christians from all over the world gather to fellowship and be equipped to bring the power of the Holy Spirit back to their churches and homes. While we are focused on ministry to the United Methodist Church, you do not need to be a Methodist to attend!
During our main Worship Celebration sessions, a modern worship band will bring worship through praise. We also have a dance team and a banner ministry who participcate in the celebration. You may see people raising their hands or even dancing to the Lord. There are also workshops offered for those who wish to learn more about dance and banners in ministry.
We usually have a wide range of speakers from many different backgrounds who bring powerful, impactful teachings. All main session teachings are recorded and DVDs, CDs and MP3s are made available for order or download on our Resource Store.
Many times, after a time of teaching, we will have ministry time. This involves trained ministry teams of 2 people each, waiting to pray for any need you may have. Feel free to get prayer and linger at the front until God is done working on you.
The Gate Kids Ministry is a ministry of FUN in the Holy Spirit! Age appropriate learning experiences for preschool through elementary age world changers will worship, create, and learn about how they can be filled and equipped in the power of the Holy Spirit. The nursery for your little world changer will include an atmosphere of love and the Holy Spirit.
Children’s ministry is offered for the following age groups:
