The New Room Movement

At its core, New Room is a new space in the larger arena of global Christianity. New Room has emerged as a place where Christians sharing a common Wesleyan-Arminian theological perspective can find common fellowship and a valuable resourcing platform. The goal of New Room is to be a community where individuals can remain true to their own traditions—Nazarene, Free Methodist, Wesleyan, United Methodist, Salvation Army, Pentecostal, nondenominational, etc. while at the same time joining with passionate believers who share their hope for revival and their expectation that through the agency of the Holy Spirit lives can be powerfully and decisively changed. These persons and groups are united in a belief that God is not through with this work and that (appearances notwithstanding) the Wesleyan revival is not fully spent!

The New Room Conference

New Room Conference is our effort in gathering pastors and leaders under one roof to convene conversations, curate content, call to prayer, and inspire a new generation of men and women who long to be a part of a great awakening. Our heart is to resource the Global Christian Movement—not a particular church or denomination or institution. We are part of the global tribe of the Wesleyan Tradition, and in this we are attempting to gather the many scattered parts of this movement across the church because we have come to believe this tried and true way of Wesleyan discipleship is the most comprehensive scriptural vision and the most extravagant transformational expression of the Gospel in the history of the Church so far.  We are not looking to restore what was, rather we are asking God to lead us into fresh expressions and holy spirit empowered leadership to spread the holy love of God. Join us.
