We are in expectation that what God has for each of us, and those that will be attending, will leave blessed, equipped, and ready to provoke a change in their communities and cities through the fine arts.

Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire which spread out and touched each person there. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in other languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.”  Acts 2:1-4 Mission Our mission is to provide place where once a year ministers and ministries of the fine arts can come to be trained technically and theologically in dance, mime, painting, song, music, photography and videography through our CREATIVE SPACE, as well unite in praise, worship and intercession through our UNITY FEST night service.

With two campuses in Massachusetts, Springfield and Worcester, RFAIM currently equips ministers and ministries in the areas of dance, mime, painting, and intercession. Visionary of THE GATHERING, Triny has a passion for the arts, provoking unity and restituting creativity back into the church.

Prophet Aldo Peréz – New York Prophet Aldo Perez has been called with a grace to equip and activate a generation of prophets with a strong anointing, which can bring the hearts of the children back to the Father through prophetic dance. He has been ministering in his congregation and community for nine years, where he also works on equipping the saints for ministry. Prophet Aldo has gained influence in cities and the nations in the areas of prophetic intercession and spiritual break through.

There he completed his second and third grade schooling, but at the age of nine returned back to the Caribbean. Attending the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) - Cayey Campus, obtaining his Bachelors, Pastor Christopher was called by God from a place where there was nothing. Being delivered and freed from panic attacks, Pastor Christopher was given the vision to return back to intimacy, to the secret place with our Heavenly Father.

As a child his family instilled in him biblical principals and he attended Pabellón de la Victoria Church in the town of Hormigueros.  While an adolescent a fervent passion for dance awakened in him, taking him to devote himself to the ministry Pies de Cierva of his church. Victor's story is similar as the prodigal son's parable that Jesus told his disciples. Even tough he was a very passionate and devoted young man who was used in the area of the Arts, there was a time when he strayed from God. However his life was sealed and the immeasurable grace of God led him back to the Father who never stopped searching for him as a shepherd searches for a lost sheep.  God has lift him up and taken him back to his original purpose: A passionate worshipper with a calling in the creative arts. He is an active leader in the dance ministry of his local church, Pabellón de la Victoria in Hormigueros, Puerto Rico. His pastor is Glenda Pérez who is under the apostolic covering of pastors and founders Héctor and Evelyn Pérez. Following this line God placed him as part of Imaginare!

Both teams are under the covering of its founders and Executive Directors Edwin Santini and Vilmarie Degro, whom at the same time, as well as the ministry, are under the direct covering of Apostles Rubén and Gloria Arroyo, main pastors of International Center of Restoration and Praise (C.I.D.R.A.) in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Program of ministerial certification of intense training in the development of the supernatural and artistic. In addition he was part of the 2015 dance company of the Feast of the Tabernacles that takes place in Jerusalem by the International Christian Embassy of Jerusalem (ICEJ). It should be mentioned that the seal of leadership has manifested in all aspects of his life, family, education, work and ministry. Minister Alberto Ferrá Ramos – Puerto Rico Alberto Ferrá Ramos is a painter, ceramist and mime artist. He is a member of the Christian Community Church in Arecibo, Puerto Rico where he ministers as an intercessor and a prophetic artist. For ten years he has been traveling as a missionary serving in many areas, such as the arts. Alberto is co-founder and member of Crearte Ministry, where he has been serving for eight years painting and offering workshops to numerous churches and ministries in the United States, Central America and the Caribbean. In 2015 served as a resource for THE GATHERING in Springfield, Massachusetts and as a minister in the International Dance Conferences of the International Christian Dance Fellowship (ICDF) of Puerto Rico.  Minister Keshia Tigner - Connecticut Keshia has been called to the arts since a little girl and has over 18 years of combined experience in liturgical dance, drama, step, gymnastics, and mime. She founded Appointed Praise Mime Ministry in 2008 and has been privileged to minister throughout the northeast to uplift the name of Jesus Christ through prophetic movement. After leading and assisting with various ministries in Connecticut, God gave the vision of an educational arts program where students could develop their spiritual foundation, identify their gifts, and express worship. Thus, in 2013 Stir Up The Gift Arts Academy, Inc. (SGAA) was launched. The mission of SGAA is to educate and equip this generation by allowing them to identify, intensify, and implement their God-given gifts. SGAA currently offers mime classes, empowerment classes, worship sessions, workshops, mentoring, and yearly retreats and conferences. Keshia is a member of Greater Works Deliverance International Ministries in Bridgeport, CT. She stands on Philippians 1:6 “...being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”  Is there a dress code for attendees?  CREATIVE SPACE (Day Session) Attendees are to wear THE GATHERING t-shirt (given upon check-in) with loose fit clothing that provides adequate coverage and appropriate for workshops. UNITY FEST (Night Session) Dancers are to wear white under base with a white overlay. Dance leaders can wear a white under base with either a yellow, orange, aqua, or pink overlay. Painters can come in regular dress attire to paint. Mime ministers will wear a white top with white pants.  Singers and musicians will come appropriately dressed to minister. Intercessors please come appropriately dressed to serve. Photographers must wear all black – top and bottoms. Will there be any spiritual preparation before THE GATHERING? Yes, a 21-day fast will be scheduled starting on Saturday, June 11th 2016.  Each day will be assigned to a RFAI staff member, student and/or invited speaker to intercede for the event and prepare a devotional for the day, which will be posted on our Facebook event page. 2016 CREATIVE Pledges We invite you to partner with us in becoming a CREATIVE pledger for this year’s celebration.

This just shows the level of the class for our students.   The Pet Saver / First Aid and CPR program is aproximately 8 hours in length and is the recommended course of instruction and includes all three classes.   PetSaver (Approximately 8 hours)(8am - 5pm) The PetSaver class includes three seperate programs combined into a one day class. They are: 1. Pet First Aid & CPR (Approximately 5-6 hours)(8am - 2pm) One of the most important and vital items you will learn in this class is the Snout -To-Tail assessment. This skill alone is worth the price of admission Restraining and Muzzling Primary Assessment Rescue Breathing Canine and Feline CPR Choking Management Snout-To-Tail Assessment Assessing the Pet's Vitals Handbook Insect Bites & Stings and snake bites Heat & Cold Injuries Seizure 2. Caring For Your Senior Pet-izen  Part of being a caring, conscientious, and responsible and loving pet owner includes helping the pet into its “golden years.” Medically speaking, “old age” for pets is considered a condition and not an illness or disease.  There are many preventative measures that you can do now to increase the quality and quantity of your pet’s life as they become “senior pet-izens.”  This course will teach you to create a lifestyle for your pet that minimizes the risk of illness, injury and disease and, at the same time, maximizes the quality of their life and your relationship with them. 3. Dental Care For Your Pets  Your pet not having their teeth brushed for the first 3 years of their life is equivalent to you not seeing a dentist until you were about 20 years old.  Imagine what your mouth would look like, what it would smell like if you didn’t have any dental care for the first 20 years of your life!  This course will teach you how to properly brush your pets' teeth, how to recognize the signs of periodontal disease, the four stages of periodontal disease, and what you should do if you suspect your pet has periodontal disease.  You can read more about this program and others at: www.jimhelemsdogpals.com You can see all out Pet First Aid products on our shop: www.dogpalsshop.com   About your instructor.   Jim Helems currently owns Jim Helems' Dog Pals.
