Description

Experience the Living Waters of the Holy Spirit

Jesus stood up and exclaimed, "Let anyone who thirsts come to me and drink. Whoever believes in mye, as scripture says: 'Rivers of living water will flow from within him.'" (John 7:37-38)

Do you want to share your faith? Do you want to see the Holy Spirit touch people through you in power? Pope Francis inspired the Church at Circus Maximus in Rome, June 2017, with a prophetic call to experience the movement of the Holy Spirit in what he called God’s glorious Current of Grace. The Pope believes there is so much more that God wants to do in our world, through each of us! When the Holy Spirit touches the human heart, He makes known His joy and freedom. Georgian Banov and his students will train all in ways that they have learned to identify God’s glorious presence within, to give our faith to the poor. We will go out into the streets in teams with Global Celebration students and experience the grace of the Holy Spirit in a new way that heals hearts, strengthens people, and helps you to live your life with a new vision, passion, and purpose. Come and:

  • Identify the Holy Spirit’s movement
  • Train in activating your gifts to minister to friends and family
  • Discover new ways to evangelize in the power of the Holy Spirit
  • Experience awesome praise and worship
  • Experience healing, deliverance, and breaking free of things that weigh us down

The conference concludes with a free healing service Saturday evening at Covenant United Methodist Church to heal and refresh you more in the Spirit than you thought possible.

The conference will be led by Fr. Fred Close and Georgian Banov, chock-full of fun, inspiration, and even some Russian worship songs.

CONFERENCE LEADERS

Fr. Fred Close

Fr. Fred Close — graduated from Boston College Law School and worked as a lawyer for the Justice Department in Washington D.C. He participated in the charismatic renewal as a member of the Mother of God Community. During his time with the community, he sensed a call to the priesthood and was later ordained as a priest of the Archdiocese of Washington in 2001. He is now the pastor at St. Anthony of Padua parish in Washington, D.C. where he has led various praise and worship meetings and hosted other evangelistic events. He currently serves as the English liaison to the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the Archdiocese of Washington. Attending the 50th anniversary celebration of the Charismatic Renewal in Rome, he heard Pope Francis call all in the Church to participate in the “Current of Grace” of the Holy Spirit.

Georgian Banov

Georgian Banov — Born in communist Bulgaria, Georgian Banov became a Christian after escaping through the Iron Curtain and moving to Southern California in 1974. Well-known for his extensive involvement in the Christian music scene, Georgian was the leader of a contemporary Christian band called Silverwind in the 80s. He also co-wrote and co-produced several famous children’s classics, including Music Machine and Bullfrogs and Butterflies which sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide and earned a Dove Award and Grammy nomination.
