We Do It In The Rain…

That’s right! Big props go out ALL of our volunteers for all your hard work to make Sunday happen this past week.

Revive Church is quickly becoming THE BEST place to serve and it is all because of the quality people we have serving.

Anyone who will show up at 7:00 am in the morning to set-up church in the pouring rain – only to stay after church to tear-down in THE POURING RAIN – definitely LOVES JESUS  and wants to see this county changed!!!

Thank you so much for what you do. Even in spite of the rain, we had SEVERAL new families this past Sunday and they were able to experience the love of Christ from the moment they pulled in the parking lot all because of you serving as one of our volunteers.

You never know, this past Sunday may just be the beginning for someone in one these families coming to know JESUS CHRIST all because you showed up to serve – even in the rain.

We can’t THANK YOU enough for what you do. So remember, you’re NOT JUST a volunteer. But you are a connector to the current of the power of Christ.

And we can’t wait to see you this Sunday…


Its a BOY!!!


Pastor Austin and Teresa Porter are happy to announce they are having a BOY!!!

Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers. We are happy to celebrate God’s miracle of life and we look forward to the arrival of this new baby boy.

“If We REALLY Believed…”

“In the life changing power of Jesus Christ, then why in the world would we ever show up ALONE on Sunday morning…”

This one quote has completely reshaped the way I think about Sunday mornings.

Revive Church, here is our chance to respond to the power of Jesus. Let’s do everything we can to see LIFE CHANGE happen this weekend.

We’ll see you Sunday!

– Pastor Austin Porter

Spotlight of the Week – Alan Horldt

For those of you who may not know Alan, just know this –

Were it not for Alan Horldt, Revive Church would not exist…

At least in the way you see it each week. Why you may ask?

Because Alan is our “Senior Roadie” (which means he is in charge of our set-up and tear-down crews) and he is the one who makes it all happen every single Sunday.

Alan, with the rest of his team, arrive at 7:00 am each and every week. They work fearlessly making sure everything is where it needs to be, when it needs to be there, and that it looks the best it possibly can once it is all set up. To say this is a 2 & 1/2 hour grueling, physical workout would be the understatement of the year!

But this is just the beginning of Alan’s service. Because after everything is set up and ready to go, Alan also makes his way out into the lobby to meet & greet all of our first time guests –  and there’s not a guest who has been to our church who has not met Alan Horldt!

And as if there were not already enough for one morning’s service, he also works his way into the Adult Auditorium to serve as an usher, making sure people are seated with a smile, that they have everything they need in their hands to have the best experience possible, and to also make sure the offering is collected correctly so the mission of Revive can keep moving forward.

After the service is over, Alan then works his way back into the lobby to give our guests one last hand shake and friendly smile just before he returns to the various rooms to start tearing everything down and load it all back up to be ready for the very next week.

Talk about going above and the beyond the call of duty…

Alan – YOU are the MAN!!! You are one of our Partners who not only understand the vision of Revive Church, but you live it every single week.

Thank you for what you do. Thank you for the difference you are making in people’s lives. And thank you for being the man we can count on to see the Gospel advanced all throughout this county.

You are definitely more than “just a volunteer.” You are a connector to the current of the power of Christ…

You are the prime example of what it means to partner with Revive Church. We love you and your entire family more than you will ever know!!!
