Conferences and Events
Being a valuable resource for today’s Church and community is part of the Northeastern Seminary mission. That’s why we host conferences and symposiums designed to meet the needs of the faith community—to respond to the challenges we face in ministry. Each event is constructed to stimulate thinking, prompt reflection, and incite transformation as we share in God’s mission. These enrichment events feature nationally renowned speakers and cover a broad spectrum of timely, substantive topics in the fields of ministry, theology, scripture, and spiritual formation.

Methodicostal Witness: The Mission of the Spirit
Revisit the Pentecost narrative and Pauline letters from a Wesleyan and Pentecostal perspective to reconsider how the charismatic work of the Spirit might yet catalyze a fresh Christian witness for the present time. Conceive of a Methodicostal witness.
This one-day event features keynote speaker Amos Yong, director of the Center for Missiological Research and professor of theology and mission at Fuller Theological Seminary, and an interactive lunch and panel session with Methodist and Pentecostal Leaders.
