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…

RBDNA March 2015 Training Center Updates

February was another great month for RBDNA!

Fayetteville, AR House ChurchPastor Greg Downs of Fayetteville, AR shares that their initial House Church is progressing very successfully with a consistent attendance of eight students! This group is being led by one of the recent new converts of the church! RBD is working!

New Life Tabernacle of Arab, AL is working through Course 1B, as well as being heavily involved in evangelism, as they work toward their upcoming Holy Ghost Rally. They are currently holding a Bible Study Blitz and it is paying dividends since they had three baptized and four receive the Holy Ghost in February!

Pastor Greg Davis of DeKalb, IL reports that their initial team is nearing graduation from Course 2, as their second cycle students are in Course 1B. They are planning to start at least four House Churches in the upcoming weeks. The church has recently concluded 10,000 minutes of prayer!. All of this has resulted in the church experiencing 19 consecutive months of growth! REVIVAL is happening in DeKalb!

Our recently-launched Training Center in Montgomery, AL has begun Course 1A training with their initial team. They are working toward an evangelism period in July and August with a Holy Ghost Rally tentatively planned for late August.

Sickness and extreme weather complicated efforts in Conway, AR during February. Pastor Bryan Shock shares that in spite of the circumstances, their three House Churches had a cumulative average of 21 students in attendance. In addition to this, they have several getting ready to move into Course 1B training and also have a recently graduated House Church couple preparing to launch their own House Church! They also report that one received the infilling of the Holy Ghost this past month.

Last, but certainly not least, is the report from Turning Point Apostolic in Ellettsville, IN. This church recently launched their first group into Course 3 training! They followed up the wonderful report of January with three baptisms and two receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost! This is leading up to the planned launch of a new round of House Churches in the weeks to come.

On a personal note for February, we were honored to be a part of the initial training and launch of two new RBDNA Training Centers. In early February, we were with Pastor Doug Ellingsworth and the wonderful church family of Finley UPC in Finley, TN. We ended the month with Pastor James Gregory and the team from Christ Apostolic Sanctuary in Desoto, MO. The latter meeting was held during a Winter Storm Warning that dumped eight inches of new snow. Following the conclusion of our seminar, Pastor Gregory slipped on the snow-slickened pavement, resulting in a fracture to his arm. While in the ER however, he did secure a new Bible Study with one of the health care workers attending to him. RBD causes you to always look for an open door!

RBDNA March 2014 Training Center Update

March was another exciting month for RBDNA.

The first weekend of March, we were honored to be with Pastor and Sis. Dan Cox at the UPC of Warsaw, IN. We had a tremendous visitation of the Holy Ghost on both days of training, as well as during our Sunday service. An enthusiastic group of soul-winners is ready to move forward in taking dominion in their territory! We look forward with great anticipation to great REVIVAL reports from Warsaw in the months ahead.

God is continuing to do amazing things throughout our Training Centers. Aside from the reports we will be sharing with you, many of our churches have reported seeing souls baptized, filled with the Holy Spirit and lives being changed. This is truly exciting to see genuine REVIVAL happening today!

First Church in Toronto, Ontario is moving forward in REVIVAL efforts! Last month they reported three in Bible Studies, as well as having one baptized, and one filled with the Holy Spirit!

Our Training center in Spencer, IN is still accomplishing consistent training in their first House Church. In addition, they are introducing many church members to the process of RBD through new home groups. This will prepare a brand new team to move forward in RBD Training later this year. This church has had five baptized and six filled with the Holy Spirit this year!

Pastor Charles Yeakel in Mendota, IL reports that they are wrapping up Course 1A Training and are preparing to move into Evangelism in mid April, as they point toward their initial RBDNA Holy Ghost Rally on June 8!

Seibold arrived there over two years ago!

Lastly, Pastor Bryan Shock in Conway, AR reports that they currently have four House Groups meeting with a cumulative average attendance of 54. They held a Crusade Rally in March where they had 109 in attendance. During this service they baptized three and had at least 20 reports of miracles!

We give God all the glory for these wonderful reports, and the great doors that He is opening for churches across North America to begin taking dominion in their territory!

October RBD North America Update

October brought more reports of exciting things happening in our RBDNA Training Centers.

Shortly after our return from Latvia, we were honored to be able to attend a unique evangelism effort by McCormick’s Creek UPC in Spencer, IN. A very talented group of members from this church performed a dramatic presentation of “The Conversion of Cornelius”, which was actually written and directed by a member of the church. As a step of faith, the church rented the facilities of a recently renovated old-time theater, which has a seating capacity of 250-300 people. Nearly all the seats were filled that night, with at least 100 being guests. There was a tremendous presence of the Holy Ghost as the account from Acts chapter 10 was brought to life. While the full impact of this event has yet to be realized, there was one that received the baptism of the Holy Ghost during the altar portion of this service! If you are looking for a unique way to reach guests, I would highly recommend this production.Howell, MI has moved forward into Evangelism efforts, as well as Course 1B training, with focus on two particular areas. Excitement and anticipation are running high!The RBDNA Training Center in Winona, MN is still experiencing many new guests as they begin the implementation of RBD there. They are quickly realizing the need for a new building and are asking for all who can to join with them in prayer for God to provide in this need.Pastor Greg Davis, in DeKalb, IL, shares that great things continue to happen as they move forward with RBD implementation. They have just completed their time of prayer walks and fasting and are now involved in evangelism. They have baptized at least five, and report two filled with the Holy Ghost since early September. They are looking forward to beginning house churches in several areas after the first of the year!

Catoosa, OK continues to experience steady revival. Pastor Dougherty shares that they had one baptized last month.

Pastor Bryan Shock in Conway, AR reports that their first House Church is preparing now to transition into RBD Course 1 training. We look forward to hearing more great reports as a new round of evangelism will soon be launched into that city!

Turning Point Apostolic Church in Ellettsville, IN is seeing a solidifying of their two House Church groups. Since these two groups were started several weeks ago, both of them have added new members. There is a high level of the presence of God being felt in the Hall Church services as well.

First UPC of Toronto recently concluded their WorldView Missions Conference. This annual event is always a tremendous boost for the local church as well as Missionaries who are able to be a part. This year proved to go beyond the norm as there were 28 people who were filled with the Holy Ghost! This event caps a long list of miracles that God has done in this local assembly of the past several months!

These are just a few of the reports that I have received over the past few weeks. Please help us to encourage our community of RBD Training Centers by sharing what is happening in your church!
