Recharging the spiritual batteries

-A A +A

Everyone has felt as though they were stuck in a rut. The routine feels too familiar and perhaps a little flat. Sometimes a change is in order – to shake things up and re-energize people.


Grace Vineyard Christian Fellowship is following this attitude with two upcoming conferences.

The first one, which begins today and runs through Sunday, features John Sullivan, Jr., the son of the church’s pastor, Rev. Jack Sullivan. Sullivan, Jr. will be accompanied by his wife, Sofia and Kolynn Hansen.

The second conference, which will be held July 16-17, will spotlight David and Stephanie Herzog, founders of the David Herzog Ministries.

These are different conferences and speakers, but both events are geared toward energizing participants.

As Rev. Jack Sullivan of Grace Vineyard Church said, “It’s just a way to boost our spiritual batteries.”

This weekend’s conference

The conference hosted by Sullivan, Jr., his wife and Hansen will begin at 7 p.m. today and will continue at 10 a.m. Saturday and then pick up again at 9:45 a.m. Sunday at Grace Vineyard Fellowship, located                                                               at 1183 Diamond Drive.

Friday, the conference will focus on the theme, “Living Under an Open Heaven.” A healing service will be held Saturday morning and later that day an evening worship service will feature Sullivan, Jr.’s original worship music. Sunday, the service will focus on spiritual anointing.

The public is welcome to attend.

July 16-17 conference

The Herzogs have taken their ministry all over the world including Israel, Kuwait, the Caribbean and the Artic. Now, they are traveling to Los Alamos.

The Herzogs will offer three services – one at 7 p.m. July 16, another at 2 p.m. July 17 and one at 7 p.m. July 17 at Grace Vineyard Christian Fellowship.  

The main purpose behind these services, Sullivan explained, is to emphasize the supernatural, miraculous healing and the manifestation of God’s presence.

This purpose reflects the church’s motto, which is, “to seek, to know and experience the glory of God’s presence and the power of his kingdom,” Sullivan said.

“We believe the Herzogs and their ministry will help further us toward this goal,” he explained.

 In addition to their ministries, the Herzogs co-host the weekly TV program, “The Glory Zone.” They have also written several books.

The public is invited to attend the conference.
