Peoria Convention Center, 201 SW Jefferson Ave, Peoria, IL 61602

The Aldersgate conference is a yearly, family event held by Aldersgate Renewal Ministries. ARM encourages dialogue within the United Methodist Church and seeks to interpret the movement of the Holy Spirit to the rest of the church, and the rest of the church to the renewal movement. We celebrate the richness of our Wesleyan heritage and history, recognizing that John Wesley's theology of grace is in fact a theology of the Holy Spirit. To learn more about Aldersgate Renewal Ministries, please visit our main website.

Each year, Christians from all over the world gather to fellowship and be equipped to bring the power of the Holy Spirit back to their churches and homes. While we are focused on ministry to the United Methodist Church, you do not need to be a Methodist to attend! With equipping sessions, worship, teaching, and ministry time for kids, youth, and adults, Aldersgate is the place to be this summer! To register, visit
