"The scriptural message of holiness is the most hope filled message that can be presented to our world. It is a timeless message because it addresses the depth of the human problem of sin. It promises the full inner transformation from bondage to sin to freedom to be like Jesus. I believe it is essential for the churches in the Wesleyan theological tradition to gather and discuss how we should present this timeless message in our current culture. It is my hope that many church leaders will participate in these two summits and that the glorious message of heart holiness will once again reverberate across our land."



Rev. Brian Eckhardt

General Superintendent, The Evangelical Church




"Increasing the volume of the holiness voice is crucial to the relevance of the conservative Wesleyan/Methodist movement in America. The Holiness-Summit is a both a strategic and important component of accomplishing this worthy goal. Our voice, which originates from our theology, offers a message full of hope and blessings to our nation. Our Wesleyan perspective should be heard not only in our pulpits but in philosophy, the arts and throughout the political process. I am excited about partnering with the leaders of the Holiness-Summit and together increasing the volume of the Wesleyan Voice."

General Superintendent, Church of the Nazarene




"It has been with great joy that I have had the privilege of serving on the planning committee for the inaugural Holiness Summit. It will be held April 27-29, 2008 on the campus of Ohio Christian University. It has the full and enthusiastic endorsement of the Churches of Christ in Christian Union. I have been urging all of our pastors and laity to participate in this historic and strategic event."
