Ministering Spiritual Gifts Seminar Ministering Spiritual Gifts (MSG) Seminar Dates: Friday, August 13 and Saturday, August 14, 2010 Pastor Perry and Lois Payne from Marion Christian Center Location: Reign of Grace Ministries, 1100 Boyne Ave “A”, Boyne City, MI 49712 There is a cry in the midst of the Church today for greater participation in God’s prophetic purposes. Many Christians are not satisfied with the “status-quo” and there is an intense desire to be trained and activated into ministries. Because of this hunger in the hearts of God’s people, Bishop Hammond formulated the “Manual For Ministering Spiritual Gifts.” Its purpose is not only to share vital Scripture teachings concerning the gifts of the Spirit, prophetic praise, and prophetic teams, but to also advance God’s people out of the realm of theory and bring them into a living experiential reality of God’s supernatural graces.
