Be enthusiastic to serve the Lord, keeping your passion toward him boiling hot! Radiate with the glow of the Holy Spirit and let him fill you with excitement as you serve him. Let this hope burst forth within you, releasing a continual joy. Don’t give up in a time of trouble, but commune with God at all times. – Romans 12:11-12, TPT

The Gate 2022
Ridgecrest Conference Center
Ridgecrest, NC
June 23-26, 2022

The Gate Youth Conference is the youth portion of Aldersgate Renewal Ministries Family Holy Spirit Encounter Conference and for rising 7th graders through graduated seniors in high school. Our mission is to impart the Father's true identity to today's youth and equip them with the tools to walk out their identity and destiny in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Keep checking back for more information about this year's conference.

Pastor Tim & Pam Johnson

There are just a few things that Tim Johnson loves more than preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The most perfect wife on the planet, Pam. The most awesome kids in the world, Taylor, Merritt and Olivia. Chocolate mint ice cream... OK, maybe not. But one of his true passions is pastoring Pfrimmer’s Chapel UMC in Corydon, Ind., where the Holy Spirit has used innovative and unique ways to grow the church from 90 to 1,200 in weekly attendance. Even more exciting, 104 people have responded to a call into ministry from God in the last five years. And that happens when folks realize their identity in the Father, their authority in the Son, and their gifts in the Spirit.

Michael & Christen Ball

Based in Nashville, TN, Christen Ball and her husband, Michael, are worship leaders devoted to ushering in God’s presence through music while inspiring creativity in worship and songwriting.  They have led worship in churches, conferences, retreats, and special events throughout the US, as well as in India, Haiti, and Israel.  Their acoustic worship EP, “Songs of Deliverance,” is available on all digital platforms.  However, the most important facet of worship for Christen and Michael is not the art of worship, but the heart of worship.  They long to see everyone they come in contact with, on or off the stage, to know how much Jesus loves them.
