"Will you not revive us again,..?" As I have spoken in churches across our land, I have found followers of Jesus everywhere, longing for a fresh movement of God to take place in their own lives and in the life of the Church. One of the greatest weakness es of the Church today and greatest sin of her members is the complacency toward the Lord's calling for his followers to make disciples. Every disciple is commanded by Jesus to be a disciple maker, and yet day after day and year after year Christians live in disobedience to this calling. A recent study revealed that 90% of Christians living in America today never share their faith in Christ even once in their life time. We have fallen out of step with Jesus. America needs revival more today than ever befo re! Unless God sets the Church on fire by an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, where the disciples of Jesus become true followers of Christ, the world around us has no hope. Our only hope comes through a revival in the Church that spreads to the lost of our world. It must, however, begin in the Church. It must begin in me. My wife, Bev, and I have committed ourselves to the calling of disciple making. As pastors, we are leading our congregation in focusing on building relationships with the unchurched, sh aring Jesus with our friends and neighbors, and teaching new believers to obey all the commands of Jesus. We are bathing our ministry in prayer and fasting, believing that it is only God that can revive us from our lethargy , and can impassion our souls for the lost. My greatest passion is to see revival sweep across the USA and throughout the world, resulting in a Church that is passionate about the souls of men and women and boys and girls, where every disciple of Jesus becomes a disciple maker. Bev and I are giving the rest of our lives promoting this kind of a revival through the ministry of disciple making, teaching, preaching, and prayer. We have found a people at Victory Hills Nazarene, not only desiring a movement of God but also willing to pay the price for one. We believe that revival will begin in us right here in the heartland of America.
