Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet…
Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.
See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God….” (Hebrews 12:12-15)

In Hebrews 12:1-17, the author likens the Christian life to a marathon. Knowing how easy it is for runners to grow weary and desire to quit, he encourages us to consider Jesus “who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted” (Heb 12:3). This conference is for anyone who has every felt tired, been discouraged, been plagued by doubts, or just wanted to give up and quit. Our prayer is that you will experience a fresh touch from the Holy Spirit, receive a giant dose of encouragement, and refuel your spiritual “tanks” so that you can finish strong.

Renewal Conference 2015

CD and DVD recordings of this event are available in our Bookstore.

Almost daily we read in the news of events both at home and abroad that remind us of the tumultuous times in which we live. Terrorism, disease, warfare, economic instability, and moral confusion seem to define the world around us. And the church, for the most part, is asleep! It is time to join our prayers with those around the world who believe this is the moment for God to arise and move in power across our land and around the globe! G. Campbell Morgan said: “Revival cannot be organized, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from heaven when God chooses to blow upon his people once again.” It would be difficult to find a more urgent need in today’s society or an arena where God’s grace can be more powerfully revealed! Rev. Sammy Tippit helps us to remember that all power comes directly from God and it is meant to be lavishly received and lavishly shared with others.

During the 2014 FAS Renewal Conference, Sam Kamaleson, Jerry Coleman, and Stan Key reminded us that life is a gift from God, through grace, and that it is meant to be lived lavishly in spite of circumstances. Moreover, it is to be shared with others. In the final session of the conference, Stan Key pled with those in attendance to leave the desert of spiritual mediocrity, where many wander in circles year after tedious year, and cross over into the land of victorious and abundant life. As he called us to Communion, he said: “Lavish and luscious fruit is just waiting for us to go over and pick. Don’t let the giants who are camping on your inheritance scare you away. Let your appetite for the milk and honey of Canaan become so strong that your appetite for the leaks and onions of Egypt has no appeal at all. Beware! Many have enough faith to get out of Egypt but not enough to get into the Land of Promise.” God is the source of lavish grace for our lives. He provides grace in times of trial. Grace is part of his very nature, and through him we become channels of grace to others. By his grace, let’s live lavishly!

Renewal Conference 2011

CD and DVD recordings of this event are available in our Bookstore.

This conference was designed to explore how Christ can improve the quality of our lives. The teaching and preaching was aimed at enabling us to live more abundantly.

  • Christians may rediscover that all of life is drawn from Jesus, the source of life.
  • When life is correct at its center, the whole is positively impacted.
  • How do we draw our lives from Him?
  • What does it mean to “live and move and have our being” in Him?
  • How may our lives change for the better if Jesus can make us to have abundant life?
