This year’s theme for the Holy Spirit Conference is holiness. What a grand theme! Holiness at its core is about love. God himself (who is love) said that we are to be holy because he is. From that one proclamation, we learn that holiness isn’t something we do. It is something we are. Holiness is the very character of a loving, creative, joyful, joy-giving God who has told us we can become loving, creative, joyful and joy-giving by sheer proximity to him. Which means that holiness is the ultimate form of freedom. It is love for God and love for others with abandon — the kind of love that opens our hearts to the very heart of God.

What is the Holy Spirit Seminar?
The Holy Spirit Seminar is a conference on the person and work of the Holy Spirit with different themes each year. The seminar is a one-day event that features the best in pneumatological theory and practice from top Renewalist scholars and practitioners.
What is pneumatology?
The study of the person and work of the Holy Spirit.
What is the mission or goal of the Holy Spirit Seminar?
Our goals are 3-fold: Inspiration, Instruction and Impartation.
The mission of the Holy Spirit Seminar is to allow the person and work of the Holy Spirit to inspire, to instruct and to impart the life of God to United Methodists and to the larger Body of Christ.
When does the Holy Spirit Seminar meet?
It meets annually on the first Friday in December in Dayton, Ohio.
Why do we need an event such as the Holy Spirit Seminar?
“Renewalist Christianity” is the umbrella term for the Global Christian movement that puts an emphasis on the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Renewalist Christianity is a broad, global tradition that comprises Pentecostal, Charismatic, Third Wave, Non-denominational, and other types of “Spirit-filled” Christians. It is the fastest growing and one of the largest expressions of Christianity in the Majority world and in the Global South. Due to its source, growth, size, influence and impact, it is a movement that deserves to be examined and experienced.
What sort of themes does the Holy Spirit Seminar cover?
In the past the seminar has covered topics such as the gifts of the Spirit, prayer, signs and wonders, deliverance, and spiritual warfare.
Who is the Seminar for?
It is for everyone and anyone with a hunger to know more of the person and work of the Holy Spirit. It is not merely for United Methodists or Renewalist Christians, but for all who desire to learn more.
