The Rev. Dr. Hal Knight provides a workshop titled “How to Grow Closer to God: Advice from John Wesley.”
How do we develop a relationship with God that transforms our hearts and lives and enables us to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in the world? That was the central question for John Wesley and his Methodists. This workshop shares the answers that they found and their implications for the church today.
Knight was born in Atlanta and attended Emory University for all of his degree programs. He became a Christian while serving in the U.S. Air Force through reading the New Testament. He experienced a call to ministry and became ordained through the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. After pastoring two churches as a student and one full time he entered graduate school and earned a doctorate in theological studies.
He began teaching at Candler School of Theology and joined the faculty at Saint Paul School of Theology in 1993. He currently teaches in the areas of Wesleyan Studies, contemporary theology, worship, and evangelism.
Knight is the author, co-author or editor of ten books. His most recent book is "Transforming Community: The Wesleyan Way to Missional Congregations." He is an ordained elder in the Missouri Conference of the United Methodist Church.
