Conference Overview


July 8-11, 2020
Virtual Conference

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!

Main Sessions


During our main Worship Celebration 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 main session teachings are recorded and DVDs, CDs and MP3s are made available for order or download on our Resource Store.

Ministry Time

Many times, after a time of teaching, we will have ministry time. More information to follow.

Equipping Workshops

Due to the nature of our virtual conference this year, we will not be having Equipping Workshops on Friday and Saturday during the day. There may be future opportunities with Equipping Workshops in mind.

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 worship celebrations, powerful keynote speakers and dynamic workshop sessions. Bring your church staff, Bible study group, and Sunday school class. Lay leaders will walk away feeling empowered 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. Get ready to be blessed by some of the best of the best in the United Methodist Church.

Ministry For Youth

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

ARM is committed to the safety and security of all minors (under age 18) attending Gate Kids at the Aldersgate Conference, 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 Aldersgate Conference! If you come feeling empty we believe that the Holy Spirit will fill you up at the Aldersgate Conference. If you come wounded we believe the Holy Spirit wants to heal you at the conference. 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 hear great speakers in general sessions and workshop sessions. You may worship freely, without having any responsibilities during the worship times. You will have opportunities to receive prayer.  This is an opportunity to take your ministry to a whole new level!
