RBDNA May 2015 Training Center Update

Greetings from the beautiful island country of Malta! We are in the midst of a three week missions journey where we are working to help Pastor Kirby and Mary Parker, the resident missionaries here. We have already experienced some amazing visitations of the Holy Spirit and are truly thankful for this opportunity.

Wonderful update reports continue to come in for the month of April!

Our Orillia, Ontario Center shares that they are continuing with Bible Studies, as well as launching the team into Course 2 training.

The Desoto, MO Training Center is in the midst of Course 1A training for their team of six. They are gearing up for a late summer Holy Ghost Rally.

From our Linton, IN Training Center we find that they also are continuing with Course 1A training as well as launching 12 New Converts into the Discipleship Curriculum. They reported two baptisms last month, as well as several notable miracles, including a marriage, that was in an imminent divorce situation, being restored! He also reports that Pastor Williams has fully recovered from his recent heart attack and we give God praise for that!

Our Ellettsville, IN Training Center reports that training in Course 2 & Course 3 continues as they are looking at launching new evangelism efforts this spring and summer. In addition, plans are underway to open a new cycle of House Churches in the next few weeks.

Pastor Wallace in Montgomery, AL reports that they are continuing in Course 1A training. He shares that the team is experiencing some very deep moves of the Holy Spirit as a result of the RBD training that is happening.

Pastor McKinnies shares that the Shawano, WI Center is busy building their structure as well as continuing Course 1A training. Their plan is for evangelism to occupy much of the summer months as they gear up for a late August Holy Ghost Rally.

The Conway, AR Training Center reports that their groups are in various levels of involvement with the RBD process. One of their House Church groups is in the process of sending out a team of two to launch another group in a neighboring territory. There were two baptisms last month. The Center is also experiencing exciting growth in their Spanish Ministry. We give God glory for the REVIVAL in Conway!

Pastor Mitchell of Arab, AL follows up their tremendous report from March by sharing that in April three more were baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit. Their Sunday attendance has grown by more than 25 percent! They are seeing a surge of new contacts being brought into their Home Groups resulting in the addition of a new group to help facilitate this growth. Aside from the training that is taking place in the groups, they are also experiencing confirmed miracles (which include healing of cancer and a bulging disc) as well as one being filled with the Holy Spirit! As they anticipate continued growth in these groups, plans are underway to prepare for the launch of additional Home Groups in the upcoming weeks.

On a personal note, we were honored to be able to present and promote RBDNA last month at the Alabama District UPCI Conference. We were able to make contact with many pastors who are hungry for taking back spiritual dominion in their cities! We look forward to sharing information regarding an upcoming seminar as a result of this meeting in the near future.

We also were thrilled to conduct another RBDNA Church Planters Online Training Seminar toward the end of the month. We were very thrilled with those pastors and church leaders who took time out of their busy schedule to take part in this training! We are truly thankful to be able to offer help to those who are making aHUGE sacrifice in taking on the role of a Church Planter!

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

REVIVAL Explosion In Arab…AL!

Salvation, Miracles and House Churches…OH MY!

The following account was submitted by Pastor Joel Mitchell of New Life Church in Arab, AL. This church launched Revival By Design in late October of 2014, and just concluded their first cycle of evangelism and Holy Ghost Rally.

We conducted six weeks of Prayer and Fasting leading up to our Holy Ghost Rally.  During this time we took Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week and did a Prayer Drive in each territory.  I already had our town divided up into four territories, with me and three other ministers over each one.  Every Tuesday and Thursday we had everyone in RBD meet at the church at 6 pm. We would alternate praying over each territory on these days.  I would hand each ‘team of 2’ a map of that territory that we were focusing on that night, and assign them a particular area within that territory to pray over.  Once we had the entire territory assigned we would then have focused group prayer asking God to cover us and our families and commission angels to go before us.  We then would get in our vehicles and drive through our assigned neighborhoods of that territory and pray over the houses, binding and loosing spirits as we had been taught. We were preparing our territory for Revival!

This culminated with our Holy Ghost rally with Bro. Jared Staten on Sunday, March 29th. We put up March 2015 Revival By Design Holy Ghost Rally 1banners in town, flyers in businesses and we handed out almost 1000 church business cards that we had made announcing our Miracle and Holy Ghost Crusade on the back. We had 42 visitors attend this Sunday service. (I had it at 2 pm so folks could go to their service and then come to ours.  It worked!) Our regular attendance average has been 75, but we had 140 attend this crusade service!  At last count, there were 15 confirmed miracles of healing, six received the Holy Ghost and five were baptized during our HG rally, with two more to baptize on Easter Sunday!  So far, we have had 16 receive the Holy Ghost and 13 water baptisms since we initiated Evangelism in early February!

The following Tuesday, one of our group leaders was outside his home working around the house. His neighbor approached him and started a conversation. She asked “You go to church don’t you?” The leader responded in the affirmative. They further questioned “It is a Spirit filled church, right?” Again, the leader responded “Yes.” The neighbor then beganMarch 2015 Revival By Design Holy Ghost Rally 2 to share a very serious need that they were facing, and asked if this man would mind putting them on a prayer list. The leader responded that he would love to, but then asked if it would be alright if they prayed right then. The neighbor eagerly agreed. Within seconds of beginning to pray, the Spirit fell on her, and she began speaking in tongues as the Spirit filled her! Be instant in season!

March 2015 Revival By Design Holy Ghost Rally 4The best part is that I met with my Area Coordinators Monday night and we have 24 NEW people that have been assigned to them to follow up and start house churches in the next two weeks!  I have a few more visitor cards to go through and I am hoping to have some more contacts ready to assign by the end of this week. To God be the glory!

RBDNA Note: As of this writing, New Life is in their second week of House Church meetings. In their five established house churches, they are discipling about 40 new converts! Anticipation and expectation are running high as they continue to take spiritual dominion in their territory!

We look forward to many more buildings and flags being added to this map showing the shift of Spiritual Dominion!
