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.

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!

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.

At 2.42 Church in Montgomery, AL last minute preparations are underway for their initial Holy Ghost Rally. Pastor Wallace shares that the church has been experiencing powerful moves of the Spirit as well as instances of healing and miracles. In one of their recent services, a guest joined them that was completely new.

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.

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!

They also have a group reviewing some of the Course 1 lessons, with plans to move forward into Course 2 shortly.

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!
