experiencing the gifts and
power of the Holy Spirit
The deeper questions being asked today—Is God real? What is God like? Does God see me? And does He care?—are ones we have offered our best human answers to with helpful resources and church activity. But awakening is what life looks like when God Himself enters the conversation, which He can do through a manner of prayer that listens for Him. Todd Hunter and Jack Deere will offer a pre-conference opportunity both to explore awakening as the inbreaking of love in the Kingdom of God and how we can experience it through prayer under inspiration of the Spirit. With both theological depth and hands-on advice, Todd and Jack will teach on being led by the Holy Spirit in praying for people, answering questions and offering practical exercises for hearing God’s voice.
Registrants will also receive a copy of Jack Deere’s book, Surprised by the Power of the Spirit.

What the Church Today Can Learn
From the Wesleyan Revival
This pre-conference calls us back to the disciple-making mandate of the church through the timeless wisdom of John Wesley and the Methodist movement, which was one of the greatest missional movements the world has ever known. The Methodist movement is an example of the power of multiplying movements that utilize the strategy of discipleship. This pre-conference will help you reimagine church multiplication in a way that focuses on making and multiplying disciples for the twenty-first century by highlighting the necessity of discipleship as the starting point and the abiding strategic practice that is key to all lasting missional impact in and through movements.
Registrants will also receive a copy of Winfield Bevins’ new book, Marks of a Movement: What the Church Today Can Learn From the Wesleyan Revival.
