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 Philadelphia, 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.
Pastor Jacob Hedrick, of Mooresville, NC, shares that they have recently started six new Bible Studies in the past few weeks. Their plan is to launch four House Churches in early October.
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. As they greeted her, they found that she was actually from the territory that had been covered with Prayer Walks and Evangelism efforts. God is doing a great work in Montgomery!
Pastor Michael McKinnies of Shawano, WI shares that they graduated a group of 12 from Course 1A in July and are now intently focuseing on Evangelism efforts and building relationships with new contacts. The Church reports one baptism and three new Bible Studies now taking place.
Turnpointe Church of Conway, AR reports four baptisms this past month! They have also launched a new House Church group in August that has grown out of one of their original House Churches.
Pastor Joel Mitchell, of New Life Church in Arab, AL reports that they are now holding SIX House Church services every week. Their cumulative average student attendance in these groups is around 60. This church has had a significant impact upon their territory as they approach the end of their first year of utilizing the RBD process!
Our Ellettsville, IN Training Center has experienced wonderful Revival over the past few months as God continues to open multiple doors to make new contacts and reach new people. Pastor Ron Hawkins shares that they currently have one House Church meeting that is greatly impacting the students. Due to a renewed call to the church on becoming involved, plans are currently underway to launch a entirely new group into Course 1A training in the near future. Revival fires are burning!
Pastor Nathan Shutes of Lorain, OH recently shared the numerous contacts that God has given him and his family as they recently moved into a new neighborhood. God is giving them great favor among their neighbors as they approach their Holy Ghost Rally later this month.
We look forward to sharing more great reports next month as these rallies take place!
Yours for the cause of pursuing HIS will! REVIVAL will not happen by accident…it WILL come by DESIGN…
