Gathering 2018 Theme Arise

Join Us for Renewal Ministries' Annual Gathering

APRIL 6-8, 2018

Ypsilanti, MI

Eagle Crest Marriott Hotel & Conference Center

The theme for Renewal Ministries’ 2018 Gathering is “Arise!” Taken from Isaiah 60, this exhortation calls us to:

“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”

Join us for a weekend of increasing your hope and confidence in God! As Peter Herbeck said, “Darkness is covering the earth, but the Lord has given us the baptism in the Holy Spirit for precisely this time. This is not a time to grow timid, discouraged, fearful, passive, or confused. It is a time to join our Lord, our Lady, and our brothers and sisters in rising up and going forth in confidence, not in our own strength and our own plans, but in the light and glory of the Lord!”

Friday, April 6, will feature Ralph Martin’s talk on the message of Fatima and its relevance today.

Saturday, April 7, will include a talk by popular guest speaker Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT; workshops; a testimony by Barbara Heil; and prayer and empowerment led by Peter Herbeck.

Sunday, April 8, will include Mass and a talk by Sr. Ann Shields, SGL.

Praise and worship, along with fellowship, will be included throughout the weekend!
