RBDNA September 2017 Revival Update

Personally, this summer has been VERY hectic and so it feels good to get back into the swing of regular communications and update you about what is happening through Revival By Design in North America! Several weeks this summer were filled with doing overseas missions work (you can read all about those travels here). In addition to this, we were busy preparing for our youngest son’s wedding in late August.

Interspersed among these activities, REVIVAL has continued to grow in our North America Training Centers.

Pastor Mitch McQuinn of Sudbury, Ontario shares that MIGHTY revival has been happening this summer. Over the past three months they have seen numerous miracles! Additionally they have baptized 11, THREE have been filled with the Holy Spirit for the first time and several have been refilled. A recent assessment of the congregation shows 50% growth over the past year! REVIVAL is happening in Sudbury…

Our Ponca City, OK Training Center shares that the past month has been nothing short of AMAZING! Sis. Chelsie Baldwin was a part of the summer intern team in Latvia and since she has returned, new energy has been breathed into the RBD team at Victory Worship Center. SEVEN have been baptized and SIX filled with the Holy Spirit! Many miracles have been acknowledged and a new awakening is taking place all throughout their territory. With a Holy Ghost weekend scheduled for early this month, September promises to hold many more wonderful reports!

Bro. Dennis Brown reports that REVIVAL is growing in the Peterborough, Ontario Training Center. Earlier this summer, during a Miracle Crusade service that 15 people claimed a miracle in various situations of their life. TWO were filled with the Holy Spirit and THREE were baptized! They have grown from one House Group during their first RBD cycle to SIX House Groups in their second cycle!

Our Friedensburg, PA Training Center has seen some wonderful moves of God during these past few months. Miracles, baptisms and Holy Spirit in-fillings have been happening, which were culminated in late August during a Holy Ghost Rally Weekend where SIX were baptized and THREE filled with the Holy Spirit! We were honored to minister in this assembly in late May and to witness first hand as they shared their vision to plant churches all across their territory through the RBD process. IT. IS. HAPPENING!

Pastor Stacey MaGee in Reading, PA shares that they are continuing to see REVIVAL this summer. A major blessing was received when fellow pastors and saints in the area came together to provide labor to make some much needed updates to their existing church building! In addition to this they have seen several filled with the Holy Spirit and others baptized during the past few months! REVIVAL continues in Reading!

Yours for the cause of pursuing HIS will! REVIVAL will not happen by accident…it WILL come by DESIGN…

RBDNA Training Centers Updates June 2016

The excitement of April carried right on into May as we were involved in Training Seminars in Mt. Juliet, TN, Toronto, Ontario, Conway, AR and Mandeville, LA. We want to take this opportunity to thank each church, pastor and leadership team member who helped to make these seminars a reality! We also want to thank those who attended the seminars as students. It truly was an awesome month!

Many notable miracles took place during our training seminar in Mt. Juliet, TN, as well as a follow up service on Sunday in Christiana, TN. The power of God was strong and we look forward to what lies ahead for these churches involved.

Likewise in Toronto, Ontario there were well over 20 reported miracles of healing that took place during our training seminar there. In addition to those, in the follow up service Sunday AM (which happened to be Pentecost Sunday), God filled 17 with the baptism of the Holy Spirit and many more miracles of healing took place as Bro. Shutes ministered there. We were honored to minister for Pastor Carter in Brampton that morning where a mighty presence of the Spirit was felt and the church accepted the challenge to become great soulwinners!

Later that evening both myself and Bro. Shutes tag teamed ministered in a Holy Ghost Crusade service in Orillia, Ontario with Pastor Justin Pollard. This church has seen a tremendous breakthrough over the past several months and in this particular service there were several that claimed the miracle of healing! In addition a couple of children received the baptism of the Holy Ghost and one young lady was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ! The Apostolics of Orillia are well on their way to taking spiritual dominion in their city!

We were blessed to be able to hold a mini follow up seminar and planning session with pastor Mark Melton and the team of New Life Pentecostals in North Little Rock, AR. This church has experienced a tremendous outpouring of the Spirit over the past couple of months and have seen at least seven filled with the Holy Ghost. Many new contacts are being made and doors opening for continued evangelism and Bible Studies. New Life is preparing to embark on a new plan to progress forward and not only keep this recent harvest, but prepare additional laborers to go forth into the field!

Elkins training in Conway, ARTurnpointe Church in Conway, AR was the site of another follow up seminar that helped this great team to further clarify their vision for going forward! Pastor Bryan Shock reports that at least 25 miracles of healing were reported during the training on Saturday, the follow up service on Sunday and it even continued in their regular RBD training on Monday night! For the month of May they had three baptized and at least two filled with the Holy Spirit! Bro. Shock shares that they have experienced approx. 63% growth of average attendance from Easter 2015 to Easter 2016! Four House Churches are seeing continued excitement averaging about 35 in attendance.

In Mansfield, OH Pastor Wooten shares they have been averaging 14 in attendance in their initial Course 1A group. They are building momentum and laying their administrative groundwork for their first cycle of Outreach!

Pastor Koren in Neosho, MO reports that they are refining their target areas and prepping for their next Outreach cycle. There is a great deal of excitement as they continue to work in the harvest field.

Pastor Handkins, in West Chester, PA, officially launched this month after signing on in April and getting their bearings! They are averaging around 10 in Course 1A training and have also launched a group of 10 into Discipleship. And on a recent Sunday they baptized Seven in Jesus Name! There are some very amazing reports that will be coming from PA!

Staying in Western PA, Pastor MaGee in Reading, PA reports that they are wrapping up Course 1B training and are staying strong. They have seen 14 filled with the Holy Spirit so far in 2016!

Pastor Powell of Taylorsville (another of our brand new Centers) shares that they are working on the final details for their initial launch but they have already begun to see spiritual changes taking place in the church as a result of our recent Training Seminar there. There are great things ahead! (Excuse my overuse of exclamation points but they are appropriate…!!)

Our Moorseville, NC Training Center reports that they are getting close to wrapping up their initial cycle of House Churches. Pastor Hedrick shares that they have seen 10 baptisms and 12 Holy Ghost filled in the first four months of 2016!

Pastor Gregory in DeSoto, MO shares that God is doing some amazing behind the scenes work as they move forward into the harvest field. Doors are opening not only in their town, but also with some international contacts that the church has.  Initial plans are underway for a mid summer crusade as well.

Pastor McQuinn and the team from Sudbury, Ontario were just in their initial training earlier in May, but are already seeing a tremendous impact. As those who attended the seminar made their way home on Saturday evening, following the seminar conclusion, they decided to do a little more practicing. All four began to allow the gifts to operate and began to pray against spiritual strongholds in their territory! This momentum carried forth into the Sunday service as at least four miracles took place. In total they have seen at least 16 miracles, including a lady who simply had a tumor disappear! They have 20 in Course 1A training, six in Bible Studies and on top of that…baptized two in the Name of Jesus! Sudbury will never be the same.

Lastly, our Ponca City, OK Training Center shares that God has opened an awesome door for them to step into the Indian Nation locations around their city to share the Gospel. Just this past week marked the launch of this effort, where in spite of some very stormy treacherous weather, five people braved the elements to WALK to the initial group Bible Study! This is going to be the launch of a marvelous REVIVAL!

Yours for the cause of pursuing HIS will! REVIVAL will not happen by accident…it WILL come by DESIGN…

RBDNA Training Centers Update May 2016

Miracles, Healings, Holy Ghost In-fillings and More

Much of what we have to share this month centers around the FOUR Training Seminars that were held in April. Reading PA, Mansfield OH, Taylorsville MS and Ellettsville IN all served as hosts. We are beyond thankful for these churches opening their doors to allow RBDNA to come and share the RBD process with neighboring pastors and church leaders.

As you can see above, we have launched THREE new RBDNA Training Centers as a result of these seminars. There are several additional pastors who were in attendance that are still in the prayer/consideration stage that will be making a decision in the upcoming weeks.

In addition to the RBD training that took place, there were also spiritual results that happened during the seminars as well as during follow up services on Sunday.

Pastor MaGee of Reading, PA shares that there were several notable miracles as well as three filled with the Holy Spirit and one refilled during their seminar weekend. This followed on the heels of Easter Sunday the previous week where four were filled with the Spirit! #revivalinreading

Pastor Troy Wooten of Mansfield, OH reports that at least 10 miracles of healing took place and one was filled with the Holy Ghost during the weekend. In addition, two more have been filled with the Holy Ghost since then!

Some of our April Training Seminar Instructors included Douglas Elkins, Stacey MaGee, Mark Shutes and Nathan Shutes

Some of our April Training Seminar Instructors included Douglas Elkins, Stacey MaGee, Mark Shutes and Nathan Shutes

Meanwhile in Middle Heights, OH, Pastor Nathan Shutes shares that two were filled with the Holy Ghost and three refilled during follow up services and at least four reports of miracles happening.

Pastor Ron Hawkins, of Ellettsville, IN, reports that there were over 20 that reported miraculous healing during the RBD weekend and one woman who had not spoken in tongues for many years was gloriously refilled with the Holy Ghost!

Pastor Justin Pollard, of the Apostolics of Orillia, shares that four graduated from Course 1B training this past month and they currently have 12 in Bible Studies. A strong foundation has been laid in anticipation of a mighty harvest that lies ahead! We look forward to sharing more great news from Orillia, Ontario next month.

Revival continues to grow in Conway, AR. Administrative Assistant Hope Townes shares that they are seeing about 30 consistently in RBD training. Their House Groups are steadily growing as new contacts and converts are added to the Body! Turnpointe Church also has recently launched a new Hispanic House Group that is doing very well.

We told you last month of the miracle that God gave NEO Antioch Church and Pastor Nathan Shutes. The church held their first services in their new facility in conjunction with our RBDNA Training Seminar in Northeast Ohio in April. The Sunday night service brought together the two groups that God has allowed to blossom under the leadership of Pastor Nathan Shutes. You can see the mighty transformation that took place in this building in just a few short days! But now there is a mighty presence of God that fills this place and will become a lighthouse in Middle Heights, OH and the surrounding neighborhoods.

RBDNA Training Centers Update April 2016

The past couple of months have been filled with many exciting REVIVAL happenings across North America!

RBDNA Training in West Chicago, IL

During March, we were honored to conduct an RBDNA Training Seminar at The Orchard in West Chicago, IL with Pastor Vito LoCascio. The leadership team was filled with very excited individuals whom God has brought together to embrace the vision of experiencing what we are calling the Great Chicago Revival! Their passion for souls was very evident as we discussed how Revival By Design can help facilitate this outpouring of the Holy Spirit. During their celebration service on Sunday, it was very evident that God is mightily working in the midst of this congregation. Stay tuned for many exciting reports of REVIVAL coming from the Chicago area.

West Chicago Training Seminar
Pastor McKinnies of Shawano, WI shares that they have recently begun new efforts focused on launching new House Church groups. These efforts will reach into nearby communities and also new ethnic groups. They also conducted a “sweet” outreach effort tagged as “Hug Shawano” which enabled them to pass out 1,000 invites and church info to residents of their community. Wonderful seeds are being planted as they plan for continued REVIVAL!

2.42 Church of Montgomery, AL recently held a Miracle Crusade service with Missionary Mark Shutes as the featured speaker. On this particular day, guests made up 20% of the total congregation (a coincidence? I think NOT!). Eight confirmed miracles of healing took place and three were filled with the gift of the Holy Spirit. The following Sunday, Pastor Wallace shares that REVIVAL continued. Five were baptized in Jesus’ Name, three more were filled/refilled with the Holy Spirit and another confirmed miracle of healing took place!

Pastor Chad Smailes of Lewisburg, WV shared recently that as they are moving forward with their Course 1A training, they are engaged in multiple Bible Studies.

The Orillia, Ontario Center reports that they have recently launched a new cycle of students into Course 1A as they lead up to a Holy Ghost Rally in mid May. Pastor Pollard shares that many confirmations of the Holy Spirit are taking place during these training sessions as well as during their services, including the miraculous healing of Sis. Kerr (who is the wife of Bishop Kerr) from back pain allowing her to stand up straight for the first time in three years!

Pastor Shock of Conway, AR shares that House Groups continue to grow and multiply as they move forward. RBD training is solidifying many into involvement and spiritual growth.

NEO Antioch Church reports some very exciting news! They have recently secured a building which will become their new meeting place for service and training in Berea, OH.

NEO Antioch New BuildingNEO Antioch New Building Exterior

In addition to this miracle, Pastor Shutes shares that God is opening amazing doors in the neighboring town of Lorain, OH. A very strong House Church is forming there which is showing the potential to become a new church plant soon! REVIVAL is happening in Northeast Ohio!

Yours for the cause of pursuing HIS will! REVIVAL will not happen by accident…it WILL come by DESIGN…

Little nothings

God loves each of us as if there were only one of us. ~ St. Augustine

little nothingsDo not run away! We are looking at the Hebrew, Greek and English language today but I promise it is for a purpose that will encourage the socks off of you. Stay with me…

The Jot is the Hebrew word Yodh which is the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It is also the smallest letter.  The actual word, jot, is the English  translation of iota, the ninth letter, and the smallest letter of the Greek alphabet. And iota is the closest equal in Greek for the Hebrew yodh.
The tittle is the little fancy mark on the upper edge of yodh. Tittle is just the little lines or fancy marks that make the Hebrew letters different.

That seems like a lines of useless information but we sure use these little nothings quite a bit in our everyday conversation.

We say phrases such as, “…the dotting of the i and the crossing of the t.” Or, “It doesn’t matter one iota!” And now you know why.

Maybe you are thinking that none of this matters for eternity. Well, it does, in a sense. These little specks on a page are just that to some people, specks on a page. But to the English language today? They are quite important; they matter.

And so do we.

Do you realize in this vast universe that we are just mere grains of sand in comparison to the enormous population of Planet Earth? According to the World Clock, which is clicking away like you wouldn’t believe, the current population is 7,401,889,558 and it was changing every second that I was on the website. So now when you click this link, it will be totally different. Go ahead, you won’t lose your place, I promise it opens in a new tab.

Did you notice:

  • 233,367 Births today
  • 97,728 Deaths today
  • 135,639 Population Growth today
  • 17,486,929 Births this year
  • 7,323,269 Deaths this year

If you love statistics, these are some pretty fascinating ones! And if you can stand just a teeny bit more, the site shares this:

“…whereas it had taken all of human history until around 1800 for world population to reach one billion, the second billion was achieved in only 130 years (1930), the third billion in less than 30 years (1959), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974), and the fifth billion in only 13 years (1987).

  • During the 20th century alone, the population in the world has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion.
  • In 1970, there were roughly half as many people in the world as there are now.
  • Because of declining growth rates, it will now take over 200 years to double again.”

Yikes! What did I tell you? Just little nothings.

But not to our God. Look at some of the ways He tells us we are important to Him:

“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Luke 12:6,7

“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

“Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life.” Isaiah 43:4

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

It is difficult to trust someone that you do not know, it is impossible to be sure they have your best interest at heart. But when you KNOW that person, when you are acquainted with them on a personal basis…you can rest in the comfort that they also KNOW YOU, and, when you know that, “The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.” Psalms 147:11 NIV, then you walk differently, you act differently and hopefully you react differently. All because of Who you know.

You are not just a speck on the page! You are beautifully and wonderfully made! The Lord has great plans for you and delights over you with unfailing love.

Can you believe that today? That you are just as important to the God of the universe as any one of the other seven billion and He is not too busy with any of you to take time for the other? Ever.

And how do we know all of this? How do we know it is true?

His Word.

Leave with this thought today: The Jewish scribes who meticulously copied the text of the Hebrew Bible scrolls, were so particular to detail that they fretted over every little dot and mark represented in the text. Did you know they even numbered every letter, every single word, even the sentences and paragraphs and chapters, so on and so forth, just to  make double sure that the total equaled that of the text being copied before they would allow it to pass?

Mind boggling but , For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” Matthew 5:18.

Everything will be fulfilled, according to His Word. Everything. You, that little speck on the page, matter a great deal to the God of the heavens. And as the Hebrew scholars numbered every single dot on the page, this Jesus, this God in the flesh, has every hair on your head numbered and cares about you more than the little sparrow that He feeds every day.

Everyone a Gatherer

This post is written by Nannette Elkins, Editor of Curriculum for Revival By Design. You can follow her at HopeintheHealing.com

Everyone a Gatherer!

Gather. Such a funny word when you look at it and say it over and over again. Every time I hear it spoken out loud I envision the one saying it with their arms stretched out and then pulling everyone, and everything, in to them.

Gather. Come together, assemble or accumulate. Here is another version which just makes me smile:

Bring together and take in from scattered places.

“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” Matthew 12:30.

In our Revival By Design teaching around the country, we encourage others to become Gatherers. Some might be teachers, some leaders over a larger group; some are helpers, pastors, etc. But EVERYONE is a Gatherer!

“He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.” Isaiah 40:11.

A Gatherer is someone who is bringing together and taking in from scattered places. Reaching for the lost, the outcast, the down and out and yes, even the lowly. Jesus was the ultimate Gatherer. He said if we didn’t gather with Him then we were scattering. What does that mean?

To cause to separate and go in different directions.

If you aren’t gathering then you are scattering.

“As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness.” Ezekiel 34:12.

everyone a gatherer

Jesus went after the scattered flock. He looked for those that had been cast aside or forgotten about. He rescued them and gathered them back into the sheepfold!

In these last days, let us turn our focus to gathering. We must be peacemakers in difficult situations. We need to reach a helping hand to those that have hit rock bottom. And we must be willing to open our hearts and open our arms to all of those that need Jesus. The only view they may have of HIM is you and me.

Do they see us as a Gatherer; ready to take in those that are hungry for a life change? Or do they see us as a Scatterer; one that causes confusion and division in the Body of Christ?

Praying today that I would have the mind and heart of a shepherd who is constantly caring for his flock and desperate to go after any that have scattered.

40147_1538124027520_6869534_n

I took this picture of The Sweetheart in the country of Estonia at a beautiful outdoor museum. Everyone a Shepherd, everyone a Gatherer!

Blessings, friends. Feel free to comment on your take on gathering and scattering. I would love to hear!

Revival Update – RBDNA September 2015

The past several weeks have provided many exciting opportunities to share the Revival By Design process across North America. In July, we held an RBDNA Training Seminar in Shutes at FinleyPhiladelphia, MS at North Bend UPC, pastored by Nathan Moore. In August we held another Training Seminar at Finley UPC in Finley, TN pastored by Doug Ellingsworth. This seminar was the first of several that we are planning to include Missionary Mark Shutes as a guest trainer, gleaning from his insights and expertise. In addition, we were able to promote RBDNA in a Church Growth Seminar weekend in LaGrange, OH as well as meet with several MN pastors online and share the RBD process. We are thrilled with the doors that are being opened to present this tool to pastors who are hungry for a greater move of REVIVAL in their church.

There are several RBDNA Training Centers that are leading up to a Holy Ghost Rally over the next several weeks. Right now these Centers are in the midst of their Evangelism/Outreach phase. Please keep these Training Centers in your prayers for a mighty outpouring of the Holy Ghost in these services.

Pastor Jacob Hedrick, of Mooresville, NC, shares that they have recently started six new Bible Studies in the past few weeks. Their plan is to launch four House Churches in early October.

At 2.42 Church in Montgomery, AL last minute preparations are underway for their initial Holy Ghost Rally.

RBDNA June 2015 Training Center Update

Numerous RBDNA Training Centers are in the midst of their initial Course 1 training as they gear for a mid to late summer Holy Ghost Rally. God, however, has already begun to move in these churches as they show their devotion to taking back spiritual dominion of their territory! These are just a few of the update reports from May.

Pastor Gregory from Desoto, Mo shares that Course 1 training is continuing even in the midst of numerous other activities on the church calendar that are taking place. One of these activities finds that Pastor Gregory’s daughter, Amanda, is currently in Ireland on an AYC Missions Trip. We are certain that this will have an impact upon her life as well as the cause of Revival back in MO!

Great things are taking place with the Orillia Pentecostals, as reported by Bro. Pollard. They have recently begun a new Bible Study with a couple that God brought to them with plans for a new House Church to be launched from this study. They also have two other studies in process and it looks like another will soon begin with contacts who have reconnected after an absence of several months. This flurry of activity is the fruit of a lot of very hard work in Orillia, Ontario.

Pastor Ellingsworth of Finley, TN reports that in the midst of Course 1A training, God has already opened the door for a new Bible Study. They also report one baptism and one Holy Ghost infilling this past month!

Turnpointe Church of Conway, AR shares that they currently have two active Bible Studies in progress and also had two baptisms in May. One of the teams of two that graduated from a Home Group setting are in their period of evangelism with the goal of launching a new group just weeks away now!

Pastor and Sis HedrickPastor Hedrick and the congregation in Mooresville, NC have just wrapped up their first full month of RBD training and they have set a goal of launching three House Churches later this fall! We also wish to congratulate The Altar of Lake Norman as they move into new worship facilities this month. They are preparing for the harvest! I would urge you to take a few moments and visit their website to see this new facility, as well as check out their promotion of how RBD will work in their church.

Turning Point Apostolic Church in Ellettsville, IN has recently launched a new House Church group. This is a result of new souls that God has brought to the church with several groups involved in different levels of training. Pastor Hawkins continues to note the spiritual growth that has occurred in the church as a direct result of their involvement with RBDNA.

Pastor Downs in Fayetteville, AL shares that they had one of their contacts receive the Holy Ghost in House Church recently. Also as a result of RBD, they are seeing a greater retention of their new converts. As a side note, the Downs family shared a recent miracle as God breathed life back into Sis. Downs’ body after being completely unresponsive for more than two minutes. Follow-up testing shows that there are no indications of any damage or abnormalities in her body. We truly serve a MIRACLE Working God! We rejoice with Pastor and Sis. Downs in this great report!

New Life Pentecostal of North Little Rock, AR reports that they currently have two House Churches with about 10 students in each. They also have a group reviewing some of the Course 1 lessons, with plans to move forward into Course 2 shortly. Pastor Melton also notes the new spiritual depths that people are reaching as a result of their involvement in Revival By Design.

Pastor Wallace of 2.42 Church in Montgomery, AL shares that they are continuing Course 1 training as they gear toward a late August Holy Ghost Rally. The team continues to experience tremendous visitations of the Holy Ghost during their training and this is motivating them even further toward their impending time of evangelism and teaching Bible Studies! The Wallace’s also have a daughter, Emilie, who is on the AYC trip to Ireland as well. Another RBDNA Training Center that will be impacted by the cause of Global Missions!

First United Pentecostal Church of Reading, PA is just in the beginning stages of launching RBD. Pastor Magee shares that the church has been seeing an influx over the past severalMay 2015 Revival 2 months of new converts and sees the value of RBD in not only retaining this new growth, but developing, equipping and empowering them to go back into the harvest field and reap the harvest. During a recent Revival the weekend of Pentecost Sunday, they saw five baptized in Jesus’ Name and six received the Holy Ghost! More great things are coming from this REVIVAL church in the Keystone State!

Yours for the cause of pursuing HIS will! REVIVAL will not happen by accident…it WILL come by DESIGN…
