In light of the current situation with the CoronaVirus, Aldersgate Renewal Ministries is canceling the upcoming Minister & Spouse Retreat scheduled for April 14-17, 2020. We do not make this decision lightly or out of fear, but with much prayer. As Methodists we are called to do no harm and we feel if we were to continue with the event we could be putting folks at unnecessary risk and possible harm. We will not be rescheduling this event this calendar year.
You may want to consider registering for our Aldersgate Conference 2020 in Peoria, IL. July 9-12, 2020. Continue to watch our weekly update for other opportunities.
Some have asked why wait till now to make this call. I felt the Lord gave me instruction to wait till March 30th to make the final decision. I am not sure why other than I wanted to be obedient to His leading.
I want to personally thank all those that had agreed to be in leadership for their commitment to this opportunity and to ARM. I pray that the Lord would keep them and their family safe, secure and provisions for abundance in ministry opportunities during and beyond this pandemic.
If you have registered for the Minister and Spouse Retreat, you have received an email on instructions on a full refund for the event.
Thank you for your continued love and support of ARM. Please continue to pray for each other as together we seek the Lord, navigating through this event and bring honor and glory to our Lord and Savior.
