At the “Transforming Presence” seminar, Saturday afternoon at General Conference in Buffalo, Kyle Ray and David Drury introduced a new resource for local churches. The book and video series has been prepared for use by small groups, but can also have a parallel sermon series. Based on the Gospel of John, the book and 10 videos highlight how actually experiencing the presence of Jesus makes all the difference for personal transformation. Seminar participants formed small groups and enthusiastically launched into discussions on the topic of one of the chapter titles: “Stuck.” Kyle Ray is pastor of Kentwood Community Church in Michigan and David Drury is chief of staff for the General Superintendent. The new resource is available from Wesleyan Publishing House here.
