Here Is Help for Bringing Spiritual Renewal to Your Church

Starting with a word of prophecy, Reverend Charlie Holt has changed how he does church at St. Peter's Episcopal in Lake Mary, Florida by aligning his message around God's heart for the church. It's a message that could bring renewal to your church, too. 

I've known Father Holt for many years because his fast-growing church is only a block from our Charisma Media corporate headquarters. I was excited when I learned about his new venture called The Christian Life Trilogy. As I learned more about it, I invited him to record a podcast. You can hear him tell in his own words how this three-part study series, complete with DVDs and workbook, is transforming hearts and churches around the country.  

The prophetic word came from a woman at a conference with Francis and Judith MacNutt in Jacksonville, Florida, that "the Lord wants to renew the heart of your church around His heart and begin with your heart." With that, she pointed her finger at his chest. In the next year, Father Holt experienced a deepening of his relationship with the Lord and began the study that ended in this three-part series that he calls the heart of the gospel.  

Many churches use it around the calendar of the church. The first part of the series is on the crucified life and dying to self, and centers on the seven last words of Jesus on the cross. This fits in with the weeks leading up to Easter, a time called Lent. 

With Easter comes the second section, focusing on the resurrected life, beholding that all things are new and finding out who we are in Christ.  

The third study, tied into the Day of Pentecost, is on life in the Spirit and finding out about the fullness of living with His presence and power in our lives.  

Father Holt told me of reports of churches and lives that have been transformed from this series. While it is designed for a small group setting, individuals can go through the series themselves.  

You can find out more about The Christian Life Trilogy online at ChristianLifeTrilogy.com. There are free training materials, including seven sessions telling how to implement this in the life of your church.  

Because I know Father Charlie Holt personally, have witnessed his life, know his family and have attended services at his church, I can vouch for him personally, spiritually and professionally. I give this the highest recommendation.  

However, don't take my word for it. Listen to podcast, research the materials and decide for yourself. If you know of people or churches that need renewal, feel free to share this newsletter with them either via email or social media.

America and the church need a Great Awakening. I believe that it starts with churches that are renewed and living the heart of the gospel as represented in the cross, the resurrection and life in the Spirit. 

What a great way to introduce this to your own church or to utilize in your own life. {eoa}
