hosts. Pastor Kent shared a tremendous vision to plant many churches throughout the Twin Cities territory to facilitate the vision of Revival as they reach for this mighty harvest! It was great to be joined by Missionary Mark Shutes as a guest trainer. We were also thrilled to see one baptized in Jesus’ Name during the service on Sunday at the host church!

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!
