In the Old Testament, a feast or a festival was a religious celebration designed for God’s people to remember His great acts of salvation. Throughout the year, God had called His people to gather in His presence and give their time and undivided attention to Him. These were special times of ministry when God ministered to His people and His people ministered to Him.
A hymn in the Psalms celebrates these feasts:
A song to our strong God! a shout to the God of Jacob! Anthems from the choir, music from the band, sweet sounds from lute and harp, Trumpets and trombones and horns: it’s festival day, a feast to God! A day decreed by God, . . . so we’d never forget what he did in Egypt.Psalm 81:1-5, The Message
For believers today, the keeping of feasts and festivals is not a commandment. However, God continues to invite His people to gather for special times of worship and ministry. Investing in our relationship with God should be one of our top priorities for the new year. It blesses the Lord when we sing His praise in the assembly of godly people (Ps. 149:1), and He promises to fill us with joy in His presence (Acts 2:28).
Something Andrew has taught is that regularly meeting together with other believers protects and promotes our spiritual health (see the book The New You & The Holy Spirit). With that in mind, Andrew Wommack Ministries invests numerous resources into providing a variety of events throughout the year. Each event is different, but the goal is the same: to edify the body of Christ through anointed worship and teaching.
The message of the Gospel hasn’t changed, but Andrew’s personal revelation of it continues to grow. And his message is making history within the body of Christ—all over the world. You don’t want to miss the opportunity to hear him teach live at any one of his Gospel Truth Conferences throughout the year.View his full schedule, find a Gospel Truth Conference near you, and then make plans to attend one in 2018.
In February, a team of executive directors from Andrew Wommack Ministries will travel to Walsall, England, to teach at the Charis Business Summit. Businesspeople and entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to learn how to integrate biblical principles with the business world. The Charis Business Summit will also be held in Colorado USA in June. If you are looking to learn godly principles to prosper in business, you don’t want to miss these events. You will be blessed.
In March, The Sanctuary in Woodland Park, Colorado, will open its doors for a men’s only event. Men’s Advance 2018 will include amazing guests, such as former NFL coach and current sportscaster Tony Dungy, and James Brown, host of CBS’s The NFL Today. Their testimonies and examples of faith will encourage and prepare men to run the spiritual race that lies ahead of them.
Later that month, the stage lights will be turned on to present God with Us. This biblical musical recounts various stories of the Bible through the eyes of the Apostle Peter, following the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s a great way to celebrate Easter with family and friends.
The summer conferences continue to grow in popularity, and they present a great opportunity to visit the new Charis Bible College campus. For many families, the Summer Family Bible Conference has become a tradition because it offers the best of both worlds: ministry time and summer fun! And the Healing Is Here Conference presents a great opportunity to help you be proactive about your health. Don’t wait to be sick! The Word of God will promote your physical health and give you peace (Jer. 33:6).
And as the leaves start changing colors, Charis prepares for the Ministers’ Conference and the Women Arise Conference. The Ministers’ Conference is a great place for renewal and refreshing for those who are in full-time or part-time ministry. The Women Arise Conference presents great speakers that will minister God’s wisdom and encouragement to help women succeed at home, in the church, and in the workplace.
This is just a small list of the various events Andrew Wommack Ministries is hosting this year. I encourage you to bookmark our events page and keep an eye on those you’re interested in. A great time of ministry awaits you at every one. Make plans to attend, and bless us with your presence as we celebrate a feast to our God!
