RBDNA September 2017 Revival Update

Personally, this summer has been VERY hectic and so it feels good to get back into the swing of regular communications and update you about what is happening through Revival By Design in North America! Several weeks this summer were filled with doing overseas missions work (you can read all about those travels here). In addition to this, we were busy preparing for our youngest son’s wedding in late August.

Interspersed among these activities, REVIVAL has continued to grow in our North America Training Centers.

Pastor Mitch McQuinn of Sudbury, Ontario shares that MIGHTY revival has been happening this summer. Over the past three months they have seen numerous miracles! Additionally they have baptized 11, THREE have been filled with the Holy Spirit for the first time and several have been refilled. A recent assessment of the congregation shows 50% growth over the past year! REVIVAL is happening in Sudbury…

Our Ponca City, OK Training Center shares that the past month has been nothing short of AMAZING! Sis. Chelsie Baldwin was a part of the summer intern team in Latvia and since she has returned, new energy has been breathed into the RBD team at Victory Worship Center. SEVEN have been baptized and SIX filled with the Holy Spirit! Many miracles have been acknowledged and a new awakening is taking place all throughout their territory. With a Holy Ghost weekend scheduled for early this month, September promises to hold many more wonderful reports!

Bro. Dennis Brown reports that REVIVAL is growing in the Peterborough, Ontario Training Center. Earlier this summer, during a Miracle Crusade service that 15 people claimed a miracle in various situations of their life. TWO were filled with the Holy Spirit and THREE were baptized! They have grown from one House Group during their first RBD cycle to SIX House Groups in their second cycle!

Our Friedensburg, PA Training Center has seen some wonderful moves of God during these past few months. Miracles, baptisms and Holy Spirit in-fillings have been happening, which were culminated in late August during a Holy Ghost Rally Weekend where SIX were baptized and THREE filled with the Holy Spirit! We were honored to minister in this assembly in late May and to witness first hand as they shared their vision to plant churches all across their territory through the RBD process. IT. IS. HAPPENING!

Pastor Stacey MaGee in Reading, PA shares that they are continuing to see REVIVAL this summer. A major blessing was received when fellow pastors and saints in the area came together to provide labor to make some much needed updates to their existing church building! In addition to this they have seen several filled with the Holy Spirit and others baptized during the past few months! REVIVAL continues in Reading!

RBDNA Training Centers Updates June 2016

The excitement of April carried right on into May as we were involved in Training Seminars in Mt. Juliet, TN, Toronto, Ontario, Conway, AR and Mandeville, LA. We want to take this opportunity to thank each church, pastor and leadership team member who helped to make these seminars a reality! We also want to thank those who attended the seminars as students. It truly was an awesome month!

Many notable miracles took place during our training seminar in Mt. Juliet, TN, as well as a follow up service on Sunday in Christiana, TN. The power of God was strong and we look forward to what lies ahead for these churches involved.

Likewise in Toronto, Ontario there were well over 20 reported miracles of healing that took place during our training seminar there. In addition to those, in the follow up service Sunday AM (which happened to be Pentecost Sunday), God filled 17 with the baptism of the Holy Spirit and many more miracles of healing took place as Bro. Shutes ministered there. We were honored to minister for Pastor Carter in Brampton that morning where a mighty presence of the Spirit was felt and the church accepted the challenge to become great soulwinners!

Later that evening both myself and Bro. Shutes tag teamed ministered in a Holy Ghost Crusade service in Orillia, Ontario with Pastor Justin Pollard. This church has seen a tremendous breakthrough over the past several months and in this particular service there were several that claimed the miracle of healing! In addition a couple of children received the baptism of the Holy Ghost and one young lady was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ! The Apostolics of Orillia are well on their way to taking spiritual dominion in their city!

We were blessed to be able to hold a mini follow up seminar and planning session with pastor Mark Melton and the team of New Life Pentecostals in North Little Rock, AR. This church has experienced a tremendous outpouring of the Spirit over the past couple of months and have seen at least seven filled with the Holy Ghost. Many new contacts are being made and doors opening for continued evangelism and Bible Studies. New Life is preparing to embark on a new plan to progress forward and not only keep this recent harvest, but prepare additional laborers to go forth into the field!

Elkins training in Conway, ARTurnpointe Church in Conway, AR was the site of another follow up seminar that helped this great team to further clarify their vision for going forward! Pastor Bryan Shock reports that at least 25 miracles of healing were reported during the training on Saturday, the follow up service on Sunday and it even continued in their regular RBD training on Monday night! For the month of May they had three baptized and at least two filled with the Holy Spirit! Bro. Shock shares that they have experienced approx. 63% growth of average attendance from Easter 2015 to Easter 2016! Four House Churches are seeing continued excitement averaging about 35 in attendance.

In Mansfield, OH Pastor Wooten shares they have been averaging 14 in attendance in their initial Course 1A group. They are building momentum and laying their administrative groundwork for their first cycle of Outreach!

Pastor Koren in Neosho, MO reports that they are refining their target areas and prepping for their next Outreach cycle. There is a great deal of excitement as they continue to work in the harvest field.

Pastor Handkins, in West Chester, PA, officially launched this month after signing on in April and getting their bearings! They are averaging around 10 in Course 1A training and have also launched a group of 10 into Discipleship. And on a recent Sunday they baptized Seven in Jesus Name! There are some very amazing reports that will be coming from PA!

Staying in Western PA, Pastor MaGee in Reading, PA reports that they are wrapping up Course 1B training and are staying strong. They have seen 14 filled with the Holy Spirit so far in 2016!

Pastor Powell of Taylorsville (another of our brand new Centers) shares that they are working on the final details for their initial launch but they have already begun to see spiritual changes taking place in the church as a result of our recent Training Seminar there. There are great things ahead! (Excuse my overuse of exclamation points but they are appropriate…!!)

Our Moorseville, NC Training Center reports that they are getting close to wrapping up their initial cycle of House Churches. Pastor Hedrick shares that they have seen 10 baptisms and 12 Holy Ghost filled in the first four months of 2016!

Pastor Gregory in DeSoto, MO shares that God is doing some amazing behind the scenes work as they move forward into the harvest field. Doors are opening not only in their town, but also with some international contacts that the church has.  Initial plans are underway for a mid summer crusade as well.

Pastor McQuinn and the team from Sudbury, Ontario were just in their initial training earlier in May, but are already seeing a tremendous impact. As those who attended the seminar made their way home on Saturday evening, following the seminar conclusion, they decided to do a little more practicing. All four began to allow the gifts to operate and began to pray against spiritual strongholds in their territory! This momentum carried forth into the Sunday service as at least four miracles took place. In total they have seen at least 16 miracles, including a lady who simply had a tumor disappear! They have 20 in Course 1A training, six in Bible Studies and on top of that…baptized two in the Name of Jesus! Sudbury will never be the same.

Lastly, our Ponca City, OK Training Center shares that God has opened an awesome door for them to step into the Indian Nation locations around their city to share the Gospel. Just this past week marked the launch of this effort, where in spite of some very stormy treacherous weather, five people braved the elements to WALK to the initial group Bible Study! This is going to be the launch of a marvelous REVIVAL!

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

RBDNA Training Centers Update May 2016

Miracles, Healings, Holy Ghost In-fillings and More

Much of what we have to share this month centers around the FOUR Training Seminars that were held in April. Reading PA, Mansfield OH, Taylorsville MS and Ellettsville IN all served as hosts. We are beyond thankful for these churches opening their doors to allow RBDNA to come and share the RBD process with neighboring pastors and church leaders.

As you can see above, we have launched THREE new RBDNA Training Centers as a result of these seminars. There are several additional pastors who were in attendance that are still in the prayer/consideration stage that will be making a decision in the upcoming weeks.

In addition to the RBD training that took place, there were also spiritual results that happened during the seminars as well as during follow up services on Sunday.

Pastor MaGee of Reading, PA shares that there were several notable miracles as well as three filled with the Holy Spirit and one refilled during their seminar weekend. This followed on the heels of Easter Sunday the previous week where four were filled with the Spirit! #revivalinreading

Pastor Troy Wooten of Mansfield, OH reports that at least 10 miracles of healing took place and one was filled with the Holy Ghost during the weekend. In addition, two more have been filled with the Holy Ghost since then!

Some of our April Training Seminar Instructors included Douglas Elkins, Stacey MaGee, Mark Shutes and Nathan Shutes

Meanwhile in Middle Heights, OH, Pastor Nathan Shutes shares that two were filled with the Holy Ghost and three refilled during follow up services and at least four reports of miracles happening.

Pastor Ron Hawkins, of Ellettsville, IN, reports that there were over 20 that reported miraculous healing during the RBD weekend and one woman who had not spoken in tongues for many years was gloriously refilled with the Holy Ghost!

Pastor Justin Pollard, of the Apostolics of Orillia, shares that four graduated from Course 1B training this past month and they currently have 12 in Bible Studies. A strong foundation has been laid in anticipation of a mighty harvest that lies ahead! We look forward to sharing more great news from Orillia, Ontario next month.

Revival continues to grow in Conway, AR. Administrative Assistant Hope Townes shares that they are seeing about 30 consistently in RBD training. Their House Groups are steadily growing as new contacts and converts are added to the Body! Turnpointe Church also has recently launched a new Hispanic House Group that is doing very well.

We told you last month of the miracle that God gave NEO Antioch Church and Pastor Nathan Shutes. The church held their first services in their new facility in conjunction with our RBDNA Training Seminar in Northeast Ohio in April. The Sunday night service brought together the two groups that God has allowed to blossom under the leadership of Pastor Nathan Shutes. You can see the mighty transformation that took place in this building in just a few short days! But now there is a mighty presence of God that fills this place and will become a lighthouse in Middle Heights, OH and the surrounding neighborhoods.
