ARM Church Partners
Ministering together as ARM Church Partners
“Equipping the local church to minister to the world
in the power of the Holy Spirit."
As Church Partners, ARM seeks to serve the local church by praying, promoting and investing in the life of the local church by providing complimentary resources and registration discounts. The local church reciprocates by committing to pray for ARM, to participate and promote what God is doing through ARM, and to offer financial provision to resource life-giving, transformational, equipping ministry to local churches across the United States and around the globe.
Ultimately, ARM seeks to build a long term mutual ministry relationship so that the local church can become all that God intends as they learn to keep in step with how the Holy Spirit is leading them to carry on the ministry of Jesus in their local community and beyond. As the local church learns to walk in the Spirit, pray and worship in the Spirit, and share their faith empowered by the Spirit, the Great Commission begins to be fulfilled as local churches both proclaim and demonstrate the Gospel in the character and power of Jesus Christ.
ARM Church Partnership multiplies the impact of what God is doing through ARM as the local church sees the bigger picture and potential Kingdom impact of every local church becoming equipped to minister to the world in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We invite you to consider hosting a local church renewal event to continue to strengthen your church’s prayer, worship and faith-sharing life as well as to deepen your church’s understanding of the person and ministry of the Holy Spirit. Local Church Renewal Events
We are humbled by the opportunity to co-labor in equipping the local church to minister to the world in the power of the Holy Spirit.

a. Appropriate number of individual Aldersgate conference complimentary registration certificates
b. A “master” of 3 registration vouchers for this year’s Aldersgate and next year’s Aldersgate which the church can photocopy. In the current calendar year, ACP’s can take advantage of registration discounts for the next year’s Aldersgate.
c. Registration Details:
1. ACP churches MUST register via mail or fax.
2. Because of significant registration discounts offered through The Gate Youth Conference, ACP discounts DO NOT apply to Gate Youth Conference registrations.
3. Discounts are not retroactive to currently registered attendees from the participating church
3. Post-Aldersgate, the pastor (or church contact) will receive a complimentary set of keynote speaker DVD’s of the adult worship celebrations and an on-line code for MP3(s) as indicated in the ACP program grid.
Membership is an annual commitment and not automatically renewed.
“I am a pastor of a small congregation. God empowered me to move beyond the box that I have been living in. I grew up and was a member all my life in a large UMC. We battled all the things that keep a church from being a church.... and unfortunately, they still battle. The DS asked me to take this small country church in a dying community 2 years ago, we are slowly growing but the Holy Spirit is moving and we have plans. God has given me words, wisdom and power to equip this body of Christ for the betterment of the community.”
Pastor’s testimony from Aldersgate Conference
Becoming ARM Church Partner is an opportunity and privilege to participate in ministry both domestically through weekend renewal events and internationally through mission teams. We value and desire to encourage ARM and the mission to bring renewal to the Church by the power of the Holy Spirit with our presence, service and gifts.
The bonus is to partner with such a vibrant ministry which offers a National Conference on Spirit-filled living and walks with God’s favor as they prayerfully choose each step of ministry.
First United Methodist Church of Plymouth is blessed to partner with both God and ARM.
