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 Shock continues to see growth in both the physical numbers as well as spiritual maturity of the church.

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…

RBDNA February 2015 Training Center Monthly Update

January kicked off another wonderful year for RBDNA!

Pastor Joel Mitchell of Arab, AL shares that at the conclusion of teaching the Course 1A lesson on “Preparing Someone To Be Healed” that the team moved into practicum! Several notable miracles happened including a testimony of healing by Pastor Mitchell. He was completely healed of agonizing back pain which he had been suffering with for quite some time.

Turning Point Apostolic Church of Ellettsville, IN, had a tremendous start to 2015 by baptizing five and had one receive the Holy Ghost.

Pastor Bryan Shock in Conway, AR shares that they are currently operating three House Churches, with one of them preparing to move forward into evangelism. The church is also undergoing an extensive remodeling project to facilitate a much-needed enlargement of their sanctuary due to continued growth. They are also adding classrooms, meeting rooms, and offices as God has miraculously provided additional space for the church.

Our Training Center in Orillia, Ontario continues to push forward teaching Bible Studies and preparing to resume a cycle of evangelism in the Spring. The church has greeted several first time visitors in recent weeks.

RBDNA Training in Montgomery, AL

Personally, we were privileged to participate in the initial training and launch of three RBDNA Training Centers during January. We were in Cedartown, GA; Montgomery, AL; and Brookhaven, MS. The sessions in all three of these churches were well attended and the participants eagerly embraced the principles and vision of RBD! We look forward to sharing further details and praise reports from these Centers in the upcoming months.

We are also receiving many calls and emails from pastors all over North America expressing an interest in what RBD is doing. We anticipate 2015 being our greatest year of impact yet!

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

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! God is already doing great things in this church  as they have seen two baptized and two receive the Holy Ghost recently. They also currently have four people involved in Bible Studies.

Monroe, OR reports that they have completed Course 1A and are moving forward into Course 1B. They had two baptized and three filled with the Holy Spirit this past month, and are eagerly looking toward their initial Holy Ghost Rally on Sunday, June 8! God has opened the doors for many new contacts to be made already and their Evangelism phase is just beginning.

Pastor Parker in West Bridgewater, MA shared exciting news that they have baptized four and have seen three receive the Holy Ghost so far this year! They are also seeing the beginnings of two Bible Study groups forming as they near the launch of evangelism.

Our Training Center in Orillia, Ontario is looking forward to launching evangelism in early May. This group has been going through a period of intensive training, as well as some strategic logistical maneuvering, while they await the end that grip that winter has held on them. They are poised for a great REVIVAL in that city.

Pastor and Sis. Thornton, in Pine Bluff, AR are excitedly preparing to move into a new phase of evangelism, Bible Studies and an eventual House Church. We know this couple is going to see doors open for them!

The Allen, OK Training Center is preparing for their initial launch on April 6. Pastor McNeely has been preparing the church for this over the past several weeks and is now excited about seeing the launch! Let’s continue to be in prayer for them.

Pastor Ryan Kidder of Smokey Lane Apostolic Church in North Little Rock, AR shares that in the midst of attack of the enemy, that God is doing great things. While focusing on completing Course 1A training, they are seeing new souls born into the Kingdom of God! SLA is pointing toward a mighty outpouring in their initial Holy Ghost Rally on Sunday, June 8.

Our Training Center in DeKalb, IL continues to see tremendous things in the Holy Ghost! Their five House Churches are consistently seeing 30 or more in attendance weekly. In addition, they have seen their Hispanic group swell to about 30 as well. This group will be moving forward into RBD soon. This church has broken their monthly average attendance every month since they began RBD last August! They have seen three filled with the Holy Ghost this past month.

Pastor Mueller in Lake Station, IN shares that they should be moving forward in their Prayer Walks and Evangelism in the early part of April. This church is experiencing breakthroughs in the Spirit as God is showing them His mighty works!

In our Redmond, OR Training Center they are continuing with their initial Course 1A training with the goal of wrapping that up in May and moving forward into Evangelism shortly after that. During March, they were blessed by the ministry of Bro. Brandon Tittsworth (from the Monroe, OR Training Center), where on Sunday they broke the attendance record for the church since Pastor and Sis. 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!

RBDNA November 2013 Training Center Updates

The month of November continued to show that Revival is not something to hope for, but is attainable through a plan and practice.

In the middle of the month, we were privileged to spend some extended time in Ontario, Canada. The first week we did some follow up leadership training and took part in several ministry opportunities with our RBD Training Center in Toronto, pastored by Timothy Pickard. Still basking from the Holy Ghost outpouring in late October, this church is now in the process of working to disciple these new ones, as well as refocusing efforts on continued evangelism and outreach. One of the Sectional Coordinators shared that they had a follow-up meeting for dinner with a young lady they had taught a Home Bible Study. During their meal, the young lady boldly announced that she needed to be baptized! After quickly settling the bill, all three of them went directly to the church where they baptized her! This shows the importance of continued connections even after the completion of the HBS!

From there we traveled a little further north to Orillia, Ontario. Here we took part in the initial training of the leadership team of Orillia Pentecostal Church, pastored by Bro. John Kerr. This team is very excited about utilizing the potential of RBD to begin making inroads into the city that God has called them to. On Sunday, following our opportunity to minister, we commissioned Bro. & Sis. Kerr, as well as Bro. & Sis. Justin Pollard, who are working with them to go into the field, spread the Gospel and make disciples! Already they are sharing reports of doors that are opening to make new contacts, even while they are continuing their Course 1A training. God is doing great things in Orillia.

Pastor Curtis Eaby shares that they have one House Church underway and are presently establishing a group of new converts in their relationship with Jesus Christ. In addition, they baptized two and had one receive the Holy Ghost this past month. Course 1A training continues with a cycle of evangelism that is planning to launch after the first of the year.

Pastor Scott Wilbourn of Lindsay, OK is launching their first cycle of training this month! We are looking forward to what God is doing in this congregation!

Our Spencer, IN Training Center is preparing to start an additional House Church shortly. Their current House Church is training eight members, with one of those attending via skype! Makes me think of the old saying that where there is a will…there is a way! They have baptized one and had two receive the Holy Ghost and  continue to see consistent walk-in guests in their services as a result of their outreach effort in October. They will initiate Course 2 training this month.

Pastor Willie Thornton of Pine Bluff, AR, reports that they are still seeing visitors coming into their regular services. They are working to transform these guests into connections as they work to get them involved in Bible Studies.

Turning Point Apostolic Church in Ellettsville, IN continues to see mighty things happening. In early November, they hosted the Indiana Bible College Chorale. This resulted in an overflow crowd, where numerous miracles were claimed! In addition, miracle reports have been shared in almost every service this month, as well as baptisms that have taken place. The depth of spiritual impact upon this church is still amazing. Their two House Churches are still continuing to establish recent new converts.

Pastor Mike Schmelzer in Winona, MN shares some exciting news as they continue their Course 1A training of their team of ten. Since their decision to implement RBD, they have seen God open many doors, as well as send them several new walk-in guests. During this time, their attendance has more than doubled! They have started one House Church to disciple new converts, with the possibility of starting another very soon. They had two receive the Holy Ghost this past month. In addition to the discipleship training, they have Bible Studies taking place on Monday and Wednesday evenings.

Finally, this month we share a great report from Pastor Greg Davis in DeKalb, IL. They have had 18 in attendance as they near completion of Course 1B. He reports that here have been 47 involved in Bible Studies! This past month saw six baptized and three receive the Holy Ghost! They held introductory meetings for a “Meet & Greet” session in five locations that will serve as House Church locations after the first of the year. Since August, Bro. Davis shares that their average Sunday attendance has grown by 20%. Beyond that, they are seeing a 36% increase in other regular services which show that those who were just attending on Sundays are now beginning to take part in the other services as well. We ask that you join the DeKalb church in prayer for their Miracle Crusade service which will be held this Friday, December 6 in which they are looking for a mighty Holy Ghost outpouring!

We give God great praise for these reports! We stand on the brink of an Apostolic outpouring as we continue to spread the Gospel and make disciples! We encourage you to share these reports with others in order that the Kingdom would be glorified!
