Holy Spirit Encounters
Conference Overview


June 23-26, 2022
Ridgecrest Conference Center, Ridgecrest, NC
(Limited Capacity)

This year's Holy Spirit Encounter held by Aldersgate Renewal Ministries desires to provide an opportunity to encounter the supernatural presence and power of the Holy Spirit, to equip believers to carry the ministry of Jesus and to encourage believers to live daily in relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

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.

General Sessions


During our main general sessions, a modern worship band will bring worship through praise. You may see people raising their hands or even dancing before the Lord.


We usually have a wide range of speakers from many different backgrounds who bring powerful, impactful teachings. All general session teachings and teaching sessions are recorded and will be available on demand after the live event, for those who have registered for the Holy Spirit Encounter.

Ministry Time

Many times, after a time of teaching, we will have ministry time. We will offer live and virtual prayer ministry throughout the live event.

Teaching Sessions

We will be having Teaching Sessions on Friday and Saturday during the day which will focus on living Life in the Spirit.

Ministry For Adults

Adult Ministry is designed for adults to experience transforming growth, through the love of the Father in the power of the Holy Spirit, through authentic general sessions, powerful keynote speakers and dynamic teaching sessions. Encourage your church staff, Bible study group, and Sunday School class to join us. All Jesus followers will walk away feeling empowered and equipped with new vision and training to grow your church. We want you to have a passion and vision beyond the walls of your own church to see every church proclaim and demonstrate the Gospel in the character and power of Jesus Christ.

Ministry For Young Adults

The Holy Spirit Encounter provides a gathering space for young adults (ages 18-35) who have set their sights and hearts on Jesus and have a desire to be filled and used by the Holy Spirit. Both in-person and online options are available. We invite you to join us as we worship together, grow through meaningful relationships, and receive ministry in the power of the Spirit. Wherever you find yourself in life, the Holy Spirit wants to meet you. Come join us!

Ministry For Youth

The Gate Annual Youth Conference

The Gate Youth Conference is the youth portion of the Holy Spirit Encounter for rising 7th graders through graduated seniors in high school. Our mission is to impart the Father's true identity to today's youth and equip them with the tools to walk out their identity and destiny in the power of the Holy Spirit.

ARM is committed to the safety and security of all minors (under age 18) attending the Gate Youth Conference at the Holy Spirit Encounter, and all our workers are screened.

Ministry For Children

The Gate Kids Ministry is a ministry of FUN in the Holy Spirit! Age appropriate learning experiences for elementary age world changers will worship, create, and learn about how they can be filled and equipped in the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Children’s ministry is offered for the following age groups:

  • Elementary: Rising 1st graders through rising 6th graders
  • Nursery/Preschool: 6 months through rising Kindergartners
    • Nursery/Preschool only available for the In Person event.

ARM is committed to the safety and security of all minors (under age 18) attending Gate Kids at the Holy Spirit Encounter, and all our workers are screened.

Ministry For Clergy

We welcome senior pastors, associate pastors, deacons, church staff members, youth pastors, missionaries, all kinds of clergy to the Holy Spirit Encounter! If you come feeling empty we believe that the Holy Spirit will fill you and encourage you. If you come wounded we believe the Holy Spirit wants to heal you. If you come already on fire for God we believe you will receive even more--more fire, more revelation, more power, and more impartation. You will have an opportunity to worship freely, without having any responsibilities and receive prayer ministry.
