ALDERSGATE 2015WELCOMEOn behalf of the conference planning team, I’d like to thank you forchoosing to attend this life-changing conference. We believe thatjust as God touched the heart of John Wesley on Aldersgate Streetin 1738, He will touch you here at Aldersgate 2015.At his Aldersgate experience, John Wesley explained, “I felt my heartstrangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation, andan assurance was given me that he had taken away my sins, even mine,and saved me from the law of sin and death.” As you participate fully in theconference, we encourage you to open yourself up to the heart-warmingexperience of a transformational encounter with the Holy Spirit.Affectionately described as “your brain on paper,” this program guidewill assist you in navigating each day of Aldersgate 2015. To maximize theimpact of this event, take some time to orient yourself to all of the ministriesavailable to you. The conference is packed full with opportunities to receiveministry and to be equipped to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit. Wedon’t want you to miss a thing God has prepared for you!While you are here, rest in the assurance that God is taking care of all that youleft behind. Ask God for an undivided heart and an undistracted mind. Knowthat as lavishly as God will minister to you here, He will also lavishly attend toall of the circumstances that you released to His care when you chose to come.Lastly, as you journey through the conference, consider who you will bringwith you next year to Aldersgate 2016.

ALDERSGATE 2015VALUES & VISIONOUR VALUESThe Holy Spirit is essential to fulfill the Great Commission.(Matthew 28:18-20, 10:7-8; 2 Peter 1:3-4; Acts 1:8)In Mathew 28, Jesus commanded the disciples to “Gotherefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizingthem in the name of the Father and of the Son and ofthe Holy Spirit, and teaching them everything that Ihave commanded you.” The Message paraphrases Jesus’saying in Matthew 10:6-8, “Go to the lost, confusedpeople right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that thekingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead.Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons.”Jesus also made it clear that before they were to go, theyneeded to wait for the promise of the Father, indicatingin Acts 1:8 that they would “receive power when theHoly Spirit has come upon you; and you will be mywitnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and tothe ends of the earth.”God uses the local church to reveal Christ to the world.(Acts 2:40-47, Ephesians 5:25-30, Ephesians 3:9-11)The book of Acts describes the early church ascontinuing steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine andfellowship, in the breaking of the bread, and in prayers. Itsays that fear came upon every soul, and many wondersand signs were done through the apostles. “All whobelieved were together, and had all things in common,and sold their possessions and goods, and divided themamong all, as anyone had need. So continuing daily,with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread fromhouse to house, they ate their food with gladness andsimplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with allthe people. And the Lord added to the church daily thosewho were being saved.” Freshly baptized in the HolySpirit, it was the early church that Acts 17 says “Turnedthe world upside down.”When the church was the church, people saw Christexemplified. Ephesians 3:10 tells us that it is through thechurch that the manifold wisdom of God is made knownto the principalities and powers in the heavenly places,according to the eternal purpose which He accomplishedin Christ Jesus our Lord. The Message paraphrases itsaying that: Through followers of Jesus like yourselvesgathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God isbecoming known and talked about even among the angels!The local church is precious to God. Ephesians 5 tells usthat Christ, the head of the church, loved the church andgave Himself for her… that He might sanctify and cleanseher with the washing of water by the word, that He mightpresent her to Himself a glorious church. That passagegoes on to say that the Lord nourishes and cherishes thechurch...why? So that the church is strong and healthy tomake known God’s extraordinary plan to reconcile theworld through Christ.JOIN US FORALDERSGATE 2016JULY 21-24, 2016LEXINGTON CONVENTION CENTERLEXINGTON, KENTUCKYFor more information, visit AldersgateConference.org4


ALDERSGATE 2015OUR VISIONThat every local church would proclaim and demonstratethe Gospel in the character and power of Jesus Christ.If God uses the local church to reveal Christ to the world,and the Holy Spirit is essential for that task, don’t youthink that every local church needs to learn to minister tothe world in the power of the Holy Spirit?Envision every local church impacting their worldwhere God has uniquely placed them, proclaiming anddemonstrating the gospel in the character and in thepower of Jesus Christ. And if that is too impossible toconsider, imagine if every one of the more than 32,000United Methodist Churches in the United States were,in word and in deed, proclaiming and demonstrating thegospel – carrying on the ministry of Jesus!OUR MISSIONTo equip the local church to minister to the world in thepower of the Holy Spirit.Ephesians 4:11 reminds us that God gave gifts to theBody of Christ to equip the saints for the work ofministry, for building up the body of Christ. ARM seeks tonurture, educate and equip individuals and churches tominister in the power of the Holy Spirit.Without the Holy Spirit, the wounded keep on wounding,the hurt keep on hurting, and the aimless continue towander. Without the Holy Spirit, the captives remaincaptive, the spiritually blind continue in blindness, andthe spiritually deaf continue in silence. Without the HolySpirit, prayers remain unproductive and ineffective,worship remains weak, mediocrity is propelled, andpotentials are not reached. Without the Holy Spirit,instead of fulfilling the Great Commission, the churchends up sitting like the lame one at the Gate Beautifulbegging from the world just to survive.Picture instead, God supernaturally, and uniquely atwork in every local church, drawing people to Himself,building His church, advancing His Kingdom, turning theworld upside down.OUR STRATEGYTo serve the local church by providing dynamic learningexperiences that teach participants to live in the powerof the Holy Spirit.ARM purposes to strengthen the church with a strategyof team-led renewal events tailored to the spiritualneeds of the local congregation. ARM offers tools tohelp the local church establish a vibrant prayer, worshipand faith-sharing life fueled by the power of the HolySpirit. To individuals, ARM offers learning experiencesthat teach about the ministry of the Holy Spirit whoempowers them to pray, worship and to share their faithjourney, carrying on the ministry of Jesus.Also, ARM seeks to minister to ministers. Mindful of theunique and serious challenges that clergy face, ARMprovides opportunities for spiritual renewal, refreshmentand leadership development for those in ministry.LIVINGAR MIN THE SUPERNATURALINTENSIVEARM INTENSIVEFebruary 25 - 27, 2016Goodlettsville, TennesseeRegistration opensin early fall 2015.SPEAKER:Dr. Rob McCorkleWORSHIP LEADER:Jonathan DowLiving in the SupernaturalAn examination of the supernatural lifestyle andgifts that are evident in a Spirit-filled believer.For more information visit:AldersgateRenewal.org/intensive5

In her own words “My purposein leading worship is two-fold: to reverently submit myown self to the Father in response to His provision forme through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit,and to cultivate an environment where others are alsofree to encounter, enjoy, and respond to His transformingpresence”. She has compiled a team of Asbury studentsand they will lead the musical portion of the adultworship celebrations. On Sunday morning, along withCasey, we will be worshipping with The Gate WorshipTeam, led by Haley Stapleton. Each team ministers witha desire to lift up Jesus, praying that the Holy Spirit willdraw us into a deeper level of intimacy with God.WHAT IS FREEDOM TO WORSHIP?It is the freedom to express yourself to God in waysmost meaningful to you, as prompted by the Holy Spirit.We recognize that the Holy Spirit prompts Biblicalexpressions of worship differently in each worshiper. Inour worship experiences, we desire unity, not uniformity.WHY DO WE CLAP OUR HANDS?Clapping hands is a natural expression of appreciation orjoy and brings delight to the heart of the Lord as we enjoyHis presence. A clap offering is given to the Lord with aheart full of gratitude for what He is doing in the worshipservice. (Ps. 47:1)WHY DO WE PRAISE THE LORD?Scripture says that we were created to do so, to honorGod’s command, and to become more aware of God’spresence active in our lives and in our world. (Is. 43:21,Ps. 50:1, Ps. 22:3, and 2 Chron. 20:22)WHY DO WE LIFT OUR HANDS?The lifting of hands is simply one way to express to Godthat we are open and receptive to God. It can expressagreement with a Truth in word or song. It can also expresstotal surrender to God or our heart’s desire to reach uptoward our “Abba, Father.” (Psalm 134:2, Psalm 63:4)7


ALDERSGATE 2015WORSHIP QUESTIONSWHY DO WE WORSHIP WITH DANCE?Dance is a joyful and physically demonstrative responseto the revelation of God’s presence and activity in ourlives. (Ps. 149:3, Ex. 15:20, 2 Sam. 6:14)Those interested in becoming part of the dance teamduring the worship celebrations may attend theCelebrating God in Dance seminar on Friday at 1:30. Seepage 29 for more information.MANIFESTATION OF SPIRITUAL GIFTSAs we gather in the name of Jesus and open ourselvesto the Holy Spirit, we can expect that the Lord willmanifest Himself in the gifts of the Spirit (1 Cor. 12-14)as it pleases Him. We expect healings, miracles, words ofknowledge, and words of wisdom as we worship God. Wealso expect Jesus to impart gifts of ministry and service(Eph. 4 & Rom. 12), and to send people home empoweredand equipped by the Holy Spirit to make a difference intheir world.We believe that God still speaks directly to peoplethrough words of prophecy and through unknowntongues which are understood, in turn, through the giftof interpretation. We also believe that “God is not a Godof disorder but of peace,” (1 Cor. 14:33) and that thesegifts are best received when exercised in a Scripturalmanner. “If anybody thinks he is a prophet or spirituallygifted, let him acknowledge that what I am writing toyou is the Lord’s command. If he ignores this, he himselfwill be ignored. Therefore, my brothers, be eager toprophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. Buteverything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.”(1 Cor. 14:37-39)Therefore, if you feel you have a word from the Lord inthe Adult Worship Celebration, write it out or otherwisecommunicate it to the Aldersgate 2015 Word Gifts Teamlocated in the center of the front row.The Methodist School For Supernatural MinistryComplete Set(Sessions 1-7)only $459.00This set contains 70 DVDsfrom all seven sessions ofthe Methodist School forSupernatural Ministry.Filled with teachings applicablefor both laity and clergy thisseries will transform your lifeand ministry!For more information visitARMbookstore.org/mssmset8
