Lake Country hosts Holy Spirit Seminar for laity, clergy


A Holy Spirit Seminar for laity and clergy will be held at two locations in southeast Oklahoma this October. The free seminar, titled “Holy Spirit and Methodism,” will examine the role of the Holy Spirit and what it means to have a spirit-filled faith.

The mission of the Holy Spirit Seminar is to allow the person and work of the Holy Spirit to inspire, instruct and impart new life in its attendees. The event is sponsored by the Lake Country District.

The seminar will be held on two days in two locations, and the event will be the same at each location. The first event will be held on Oct. 26 at McAlester-First, located at 1501 South 13th St.; the second event will be held on Oct. 27 at Ardmore-First, located at 501 West Main St.

The featured speaker is Dr. Luther Oconer, the associate professor of United Methodist Studies at United Theological Seminary. Oconer is the author of “Spirit-Filled Protestantism: Holiness-Pentecostal Revivals and the Making of Filipino Methodist Identity.”

“(Oconer) is particularly interested in the history of Methodism in the Philippines and Asia, the intersection between revivals and missions, and the connections between Methodism and the Pentecostal and Charismatic,” his seminary bio states.

Rev. Larry Bauman, district superintendent for the Lake Country District, said a seminar hosted in February and offered to clergy only was a great success. He is excited to invite both laity and clergy to this seminar and hopes attendees will be impacted by the Holy Spirit.

“I am praying that you will join us for this very inspiring event,” Bauman said. “Come be refreshed and encouraged by the Holy Spirit.”
