Holy Spirit Conference

“Peter’s eyes grew wide in astonishment, and his tall stance was no longer a symbol of the pride that had tripped him up so many times, but of the confidence he was gaining in the One Who had died for him and now filled him with His Holy Spirit.  It was as if fire came from him, and the roar of praise that sounded from his lips was like a rushing, mighty wind.  I thought, ‘This is what I’ve longed for all of my life.’”

These were my thoughts during our Holy Spirit Conference in January as Wesley Putnam portrayed Peter, the disciple Jesus raised up as a rock of strength for the church.  I have traveled in Charismatic Christian circles most of my life, have read dozens of books, and even taken several classes on what it means to be filled with the Spirit.  But as Wesley spoke for Peter, I felt I was actually looking into the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost, so powerful was the anointing upon him.  I think I gained a new, deeper understanding of just what took place on that day, and just what is available to us today.

Each of our presenters was a powerful representative of the Living Christ.  Reports from the workshops were that the teaching was powerful, the discussion thoughtful, and the ministry among participants was fresh and life-changing.  Dr. Craig Green, in his keynote messages, encouraged us to pursue full baptism in order that we might be fully equipped to serve Christ. 

At the close of the day, several participants said to me, “I know I always say this was the best conference, but this one was truly the best!”  That’s just what we want to hear – that the anointing of God on each of our conferences is fresh, powerful, and simply the best that God has to offer in this moment.  I hope you will plan to join us next year.  It will be absolutely the best yet!
