What would worship look like if it was more about giving than getting? Less about “being fed,” and more about offering praise?
It might look like worship in Nigeria and other places in Africa, where praises are not the only thing lifted through dance and song, but tithes and offerings as well, as dancing and singing Christ followers come forward to place their gifts in a basket.
We look forward to meeting you as we intersect with events across the U.S. and outside of it!
The Methodist Wesleyan family is alive and well in East Africa! God is calling young women and men to minister through word, deed and sign – evangelists, church planters, teachers, pastors, doctors, lawyers, government officials – all Holy Spirit-inspired and ready to go where God leads them.
How many lay people do you know who exhibit vision for the inbreaking Kingdom of God?
Whether preaching evangelism seminars in Vladivostok or worshiping in Kenya, whether presenting at North American evangelism conferences or connecting with Methodists at the World Methodist Conference, we hope to encourage excellence, confidence, and passion for sharing the life-giving faith that we cherish.
The World Methodist Conference will be in Houston, Texas. It is a long-standing international event begun in 1881 and now being held in the U.S. for the first time in 40 years. Speakers and organizations from across the entire global Wesleyan Methodist family of denominations will join August 31-September 3.
Here’s a news flash – the word “evangelism” is emotionally, historically, and theologically charged.
Cognitive dissonance is especially challenging in evangelism. We’re tempted to find ways to reduce the divergences between the Gospel and our culture, to change our message so it’s more palatable to the society in which we live, to accommodate it to the “wisdom of the world.”
The history of heresy in the first few centuries of Christian faith is fascinating as the church slowly and methodically made choices about the core tenets of Christianity.
And that’s the key. It was a process of choice – hairesis.
