WAPAKONETA — Time to Revive, a Dallas-based ministry committed to pursuing revival in the U.S. and beyond, will travel to Auglaize County Oct. 9-15, 2016 for a time of outreach. The ministry will bring their team of staff and missionaries as well as volunteers from across the country to partner with local churches in Auglaize County. The mission of reviveOHIO is to unite the Church around the purpose of going out into the community to pray for people and share the love of Jesus.
“This is a shift from the traditional method of drawing people inside the church walls,” says Kyle Lance Martin, founder of Time to Revive. “We want to follow the example of Jesus and go where the people are. This is a way to reach the hurting and lost without cramming religion down their throats.”
reviveOHIO :: Auglaize County is a week-long event set to take place Oct. 9-15, 2016. Each day begins with prayer at 7 a.m., a free breakfast at 8 a.m. and then community outreach. Teams will hit the streets to talk and pray with the hurting and the lost, showing the same love and compassion Jesus showed when he walked the streets of Judea. After another round of lunch, training and outreach, each day culminates with a free dinner and a 7 p.m. praise and worship service at the host church, Harvest Baptist, 1301 Navajo Trail, Wapakoneta, Ohio.
reviveOHIO :: Auglaize County comes about a month after Time to Revive spent three weeks investing in Darke County, Ohio. While there, Kyle Lance Martin coined the phrase “the new normal” to describe what he saw taking place. Over 30 public school clubs and sports teams invited reviveOHIO into their practices and gatherings to be encouraged with prayer and the Gospel, outreach teams were welcomed into the jail, courthouse and recovery centers, and hundreds came to know Christ on the streets of Greenville.
