Jorge Acevedo

Have you heard of Jorge Acevedo? His multi-cultural, multi-site, mega-church in southwest Florida has done what the United Methodist Church has struggled to do: reach people. His book, Vital, was a suggested text before the 2012 General Conference, and is a pretty good read.

In just a couple of weeks, he’ll be coming to Indiana to lead a day-long seminar you don’t want to miss! The location is Mt. Comfort UMC, which is near Indianapolis.

The event is sponsored by the Indiana Conference Confessing Movement. For details and registration information, click here.

 

There are a lot of challenging things happening in the UMC right now; but there remains one thing I believe we can still all agree on – the importance of reaching out to others with the love of Jesus Christ. That’s exactly what Jorge Acevedo is doing in Southwest Florida. If you’re anywhere close, I hope you’ll make an effort to attend.

Encountering the God Who Heals

 

A Kingdom Life Healing Ministries Event

 

This is a great opportunity to work with a very gifted woman…

 

 

Dr. Bobby Cabot

The Healing School

October 23-27, 2012

Bear Lake Manor

7812 Main Street

Bear Lake, MI 49614

 

 

 

 

The Healing School, led by Rev. Dr. Bobby Cabot,  is a 3 ½ day event which combines cognitive, spiritual and experiential components in order for all participants to learn about healing and experience the Healing Christ themselves.

The Healing School focuses primarily on inner healing.  Sometimes called “healing of emotions,” or “healing of memories,” inner healing is a unique ministry which only Christ can do.  The human facilitator is just that – the one who helps the person receiving prayer come into the presence of Christ for His divine touch.

 

 

              TOPICS TAUGHT IN THE HEALING SCHOOL

◊ The God who Speaks
◊ Distorted Images of God
◊ Structures of Inner Healing
◊ Dysfunctional Behavior
◊ Emotional Upheaval
◊ Lies we believe about God, ourselves and others
◊ Forgiveness

REGISTRATION INFORMATION

First Time Attendee:  $240

Early Bird Special: (Before September 10) $195

Couples:  $375 ($105 savings)

Alumni:  $175

Meals: $48 (3 dinners, 4 lunches – order in advance)

May, 2013 marks the 275th anniversary of John Wesley’s “heart warming” experience at Aldersgate in London. To celebrate this great event in Methodism, World Methodist Evangelism will be sponsoring a Wesley Heritage Tour of England. I will be leading a group and would like to invite you to join me.

Aldersgate Flame

Aldersgate Flame ~ London

As you may recall, the experience of Aldersgate, May 24, 1738, shaped John Wesley’s life. He wrote, “I felt my Heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation.” A movement of renewal and vision began that continues across the globe today. On May 24, we will be joining with the “people called Methodist” to follow the steps of Wesley to Aldersgate. For 9 days we will experience the key places of the Wesleyan revival –  Wesley’s Chapel, Bristol, The Pill, Hanham Mt., and Oxford to name a few. I invite you to experience anew the heart of the Wesleyan/Methodist Movement today.

I will be leading a group as part of this pilgrimage. For more information, please download the brochure or email Kim Reisman. Clergy and clergy spouse scholarships are available. This is an exciting opportunity to mark a great event in our spiritual history. I hope you’ll consider joining me.

UMC General Conference 2012

Don’t miss a minute!! :-)

 

If you’re interested in following along with what’s unfolding at the United Methodist General Conference in Tampa, FL April 24-May 4, the following links will be helpful:

The General Conference Agenda

Official Mobile Phone App for General Conference - United Methodist Communications is providing this for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch and Android. It will allow you to track specific pieces of legislation, live stream some of the sessions, and see photos/articles.

Social Networking and RSS feeds - specifically, a Facebook page has been set up for General Conference

General Conference on YouTube

I’m a delegate to General Conference and leave for Tampa on Sunday. My responsibilities begin Monday morning and the Conference itself officially begins on Tuesday. I hope to post some reflections about the meeting and the life of the church; however, given the packed  agenda, that may not happen. Next Step’s regular The View From Here bloggers will be posting so be sure to check back for them.

As you might expect, there will be tweets galore. I’ll be providing updates and prayer concerns so you can follow me – @KimsNextStep. There are also hashtags you can check for extended conversation and updates, particularly, #gc2012 and #umclead

I would greatly appreciate your prayers during this significant (but also stressful and often difficult) meeting. There has been a lot of discussion leading up to the gathering in Tampa, some positive, but a lot negative. We’re kidding ourselves if we think General Conference will solve all the problems in the UMC, or if we think any of our large institutional gatherings is what lies at the heart of what it means to be the Body of Christ. But General Conference still has it’s place, so I hope you’ll join me in fervent prayer for all those involved, that we would be able to discern the best way to connect with God’s unfolding kingdom (which, of course, will unfold regardless of the grand schemes we devise in Tampa).
