reviveOhio - Miami County
The story of reviveOhio began with the desire of a local radio station to see their community revived and encouraged by the power of the Gospel. Having experienced revivelndiana through their parent station in Fort Wayne, Indiana, STAR 88.3 wanted to see the same unity and outreach take place in the sister community they serve in western Ohio. Representatives from STAR reached out to Time to Revive, inviting the ministry to partner with them in Darke County, Ohio, to see revival spread across the Indiana-Ohio state line.
Time to Revive has been pursuing revival in numerous cities across the U.S. since 2007, partnering with the local Church and equipping the saints to share the Gospel and make disciples. Time to Revive went to Darke County, Ohio, and united many congregations and led believers outside of the familiar church walls to pray for others and share the Good News of Jesus on the streets of the community.
Lord willing, reviveOhio is coming to Miami County and Ginghamsburg Church, Sunday, November 13-Saturday, November 19. It will be all day, every day for a week. Each day begins with prayer at 7am, followed by breakfast at 8am at Ginghamsburg's Tipp City Campus. At 9am teams organize and go out to pray for other churches. At noon we will meet for lunch and share testimonies. (This lunch meeting will be hosted at a different church each day.) At 2pm teams re-organize and go out to pray for people across the region. We will reconvene at 5:30pm at Ginghamsburg for dinner, followed by a time of worship and testimonies at 7pm.
The schedule below is what a typical day will look like through the week.
We are the “host church” for reviveOhio Miami County, but this is not a “Ginghamsburg” event. There are more than 20 churches involved at some level including Piqua Nazarene Church, Highland Brethren in Christ, Fields of Grace, Upper Room, Troy First United Methodist Church and Victory Church and many others!
Excitement is building as word has spread about what has been happening in Darke and Auglaize Counties as well as Dayton, Ohio over the past month or so. Hundreds of people (many of them high-school-age) have said yes to Christ. Schools and businesses opened their doors… CLICK HERE to watch testimonies recorded in Darke and Auglaize Counties.
Here is how you can get involved...
We are praying that you will participate at some level by attending something along the way. We are praying that you get out into your community with a team to pray for other churches, schools and businesses. We believe that God is going to open doors for us to share the Good News!
Here is an exciting opportunity for those of you who would like to help with the DISCIPLESHIP component of reviveOhio. Each night during the services, there will be a call for “disciple-makers.” If 24 males and 26 females gave their hearts to Christ that day, in the evening they will ask for 24 adult males and 26 adult females who would like to disciple one of those new believers to attend a quick training to get their materials and the contact information of the person they will be discipling. If you have ever wanted to mentor someone who is a new Christian, this could be your opportunity!
If you have a little more time available and you would like to help us facilitate the reviveOhio Miami County meetings along the way, you can welcome folks, greeting or serving coffee... or you can help with parking or cleaning up the facility each day. Connect with Deanna and she will get you connect to servant leaders.
