Church Renewal

God uses the local church to reveal Christ to the world.  The grace to minister to the world comes from the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. Aldersgate Renewal Ministries offers a strategy of team-led renewal experiences specifically designed to enable congregations establish a vibrant prayer, worship and faith-sharing life fueled by the power of the Holy Spirit.


ARM has a special calling to renewing Methodist Churches but we work with churches in other denominations and non-denominational churches as well. 

Instead of random or sporadic “spiritual emphasis” events, ARM offers a long term strategy to facilitate ongoing transformation. This partnership encourages individuals and their churches to be filled, gifted, empowered and led by the Holy Spirit in ministry to the world. This strategy can be tailored for the unique needs of your church, and can include the following:

  • Lay Witness Mission - A team-led weekend renewal event designed to lead people to a new or renewed commitment to Jesus Christ. Learn More
  • Life In The Spirit Seminar - A team-led weekend renewal event designed to teach participants how the Holy Spirit ministers in and through the life of the believer. Learn More
  • Lord, Teach Us To Pray Seminar - A team-led weekend renewal event designed to encourage God’s people to become a people of prayer. Learn More

Take your church to these amazing ministry opportunities:

Aldersgate Annual Conference
This conference is designed to equip people of all ages (youth, young adults, and adults) to live in the power of the Holy Spirit. Equipping Sessions  examine the person and work of the Holy Spirit and explore how the Holy Spirit empowers us to be the hands and feet of Jesus, ministering to a world that desperately needs the hope of the Gospel. Experience Aldersgate as a group! Spread your group out over multiple equipping sessions and come back to your church ready to share what you have gleaned. Learn More 

The Gate Youth Conference
Running concurrent to the Aldersgate Annual Conference, this Conference is on a mission to impact students and to reinforce their church youth groups by exposing them to national speakers and relevant equipping session leaders. Students are challenged and equipped to begin a deeper walk with Jesus. Bring your youth group back from the Gate Youth Conference all fired up and ready to begin a new season. Learn More 

The Methodist School For Supernatural Ministry
The MSSM is a place where people who are longing to live in the supernatural can learn about our heritage of supernatural ministry, how God is moving supernaturally in the world today, and how to be used by God in supernatural ways. Experience the supernatural ministry of God for yourself. New ministries have started in local churches after some of their members have attended the MSSM. Some churches are using the DVDs of MSSM sessions in bible studies and Sunday School classes and God is showing up powerfully in those small group sessions. Learn More

Ministers' Events
Another way to renew your church is to begin by renewing your pastor.  Each year, the week after Easter, ARM provides powerful retreats to renew people in ministry and their spouses.  Infuse your ministers with new vision, new intimacy with God, and a new love for your church by sending them to one of these retreats.
