Aldersgate Renewal Ministries ministers further than English-Speaking American churches. Similar to John Wesley, we consider the world our parish.
Below are just some of the ways you can be involved in cross-cultural ministry through Aldersgate Renewal Ministries.
Spanish-Speaking American Churches
Aldersgate Renewal Ministries holds some of their Local Church Renewal Events in Spanish-speaking American United Methodist churches. Participant manuals for those events may also be available in Spanish.
Going behind bars is certainly a cross-cultural experience. ARM has adapted some of their Local Church Renewal Events to minister in men’s and women’s prisons in Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina.
If you or your church are ministering in a prison that you think would be open to ARM ministry, give us a call!
Methodists around the world who share ARM’s vision to see people filled and transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit have banded together to minister to others in the name of ARM; not just for one event, but many different events on an ongoing basis.
In the Philippines, ARM has an annual Aldersgate conference the first week of January that is comparable to the Aldersgate conference in the USA. It is well supported by the United Methodist bishops, district superintendents and various seminaries in the Philippines.
In England, ARM-UK has formed under the leadership of Rev. David Winstanley. ARM-UK has hosted renewal events not only in England, but also in Estonia and Lithuania. ARM-UK has a vision and goal of ministering in all of Europe.
International Ministry Speaker Requests
ARM is blessed to have a number of persons connected with the ministry who have expertise in supernatural ministry, prayer, healing, spiritual gifts and a variety of other topics related to the ministry of the Holy Spirit whom are also willing to travel internationally. ARM receives and responds to requests for individual speakers or resource people to come speak, or teach, at international conferences and lectureships, and to help blossom what is intended to become successful ARM international fellowships.
Because of ARM’s historic relationship with the United Methodist Church, responding to requests from a Methodist church body are given priority. Travel and housing expenses for the speaker are expected to be accounted for, and an honorarium or contribution to ARM is always greatly appreciated. Contact the ARM Office at info@AldersgateRenewal.org for more information.
Hosting an International Event
If you're interested in hosting a renewal event at a location outside of the United States, we would love to talk with you!

As a result of personal contacts and the internet ARM has been contacted by church leaders (mostly Methodist) around the world requesting us to do ARM ministry in their countries. We feel that it is the best use of our time and resources to respond to international requests to minister to groups of church leaders and pastors rather than requests coming from individual churches. That way, church leaders and pastors can communicate what they learned and experienced to their own people in their own language without the need for translators.
ARM has sent teams to do some of their local church renewal events in the Philippines, Poland, Peru, Paraguay, Russia, Nepal, Tanzania, Slovakia, England, Estonia, Lithuania, Brazil, India, and Liberia. We are currently responding to requests by Methodist leaders in 4 other countries.
