Alumni Events – October 2016

Three Streams, One Mission

I want to invite you to our Convergence Conference this Fall at Asbury Seminary! Convergence is a two-day event (October 11-12)  designed to help church leaders recover ancient pathways for formation and mission in contemporary ministry by bringing together Scripture, Spirit, and Sacrament.

This event will feature guest Speakers Bishop Todd Hunter (Churches for the Sake of Others) and Rev. Ashley Mathews (Eastside Parish Director, Trinity Anglican, Atlanta), while Marty Reardon (Worship Pastor, Trinity Anglican, Atlanta) will lead us in sacramental worship each day.

In addition to each of these chapel services, we will be hosting three distinct workshops for those in attendance. These include: Convergent Worship and Liturgy, Ancient Spiritual Practices, and Sacramental Mission and Church Planting.

We believe that exploring the historic practices of the church will bring new life and substance to the leaders of our day and we would be delighted if you joined with us for this incredible opportunity!

For more information, please contact Ross Jenkins ( or to register please visit

We also have a block of rooms available at the Asbury Inn and can book a room at Just be sure to mention in your comments that you are attending Convergence.

May the Lord bless you in your service and we look forward to seeing you in October!

In Christ,
Winfield Bevins
Driector of Church Planting

Renewal Retreats

Join us on the Wilmore, Kentucky campus for a Renewal Retreat! Renewal Retreats are individual, personalized retreats tailored around your chosen intention (needs and longings) for getting away.  For each retreat we thoughtfully draw from the formation-rich environment of the Asbury Seminary community and craft personalized days to move you slowly through formative experiences aimed toward your intention for the retreat.  Most retreats begin with a professional massage as well as a conversation with a personal trainer to discuss health and choose a gentle way to engage the body during the retreat.  The other elements of your retreat are chosen to fit your request.  These might include a conversation with faculty around scripture, discerning prayer times, thoughtful leadership advice, sharing in the Eucharist and participating in chapel, fasting in solitude or delving into study.  The cost of renewal retreats varies dependent on length of stay and activities in which you participate. 

If you are interested in participating in this form of retreat, feel free to contact

Peg Hutchins, the Director of Community Formation, at (859) 858-2242 or Tammy Cessna, the Director of Alumni and Church Relations, at (859) 858-2306
