As we are celebrating our year of momentum in 2023, it truly has been a blessing, and I just want to say a huge thank you to our Staff, Leaders and Dream Team for making this such a special year! Our Revive Kids ministry is exploding, online and production is growing, worship has been amazingly anointed, outreach has been more than we have ever done before and sooo much more!! I truly am honored to be a part of Revive Church and this amazing revival God is doing in Vermont. At a recent pastor’s meeting I attended they labeled this movement in Vermont, “A Silent Revival.” This kind of stuck with me in prayer because I was reminded of a message I preached years ago called, “What Good Can Come?” It was a spin off of John 1 where Nathaniel said in verse 46, “Nazareth, what good can come from Nazareth?” During this message I exclaimed, “Poultney, what good can come from Poultney?” Well, we know what Jesus did from a little town of Nazareth and what we are seeing coming out of a little town in Vermont is miraculous! Don’t let anyone discount the anointing on your life just because they have never seen something come from your background or family! We are the Gideons and Ruths and Esthers of today! I want to remind you about our verse of the year! Hebrews 10:23-25 NLT. 23 Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. 24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
Let’s hold tight, dig in and finish this year strong! Remember, greater is He (God) that is in you, than he (devil) that’s in the world!!
This past August we hosted 38 youth at our 2nd annual youth conference and 70 kids at our very first VBS. In total 17 of these children gave their lives to Jesus Christ! Now that’s something to celebrate! As you move into September we are beginning what will be a lengthy series entitled, “Relate: A Relationship Series.” We are going to be going through every pro, every con, every high and low, conflict resolution, Marriage and many other topics pertaining to relationships! The Bible says, “It’s not good for man to be alone,” so in this series we will be going through how we can develop and maintain the best relationships possible to thrive in our walk with Jesus! I can’t wait to see you there!
