Important : Vision

I want to cast a regional vision for you, and I’d ask that you pray about how you can participate. If you could FORWARD this to everybody on your list, that would be an amazing help for us!! I’m available to travel and speak on this vision in churches too!

 I’d deeply appreciate it if you read through this entire message. It’s exciting!

And, you may know people who have connections and/or resources. Do you have the desire and resources to help launch several churches in the Detroit area? Or, do you know somebody who does? The Revival Church vision is extreme, and it requires extreme plans and extreme participation. This is going to be fun!! People in Detroit will be transformed forever!! Yeah!

We’re looking for a central hub where we’d hold large conferences, have a 24/7 house of prayer, possibly setup a Dream Center style ministry, etc.

FIRST, check this out! Late last night I decided to email some people who have large properties available and boldly asked them to donate them to Revival Church. I was pleasantly surprised and encouraged by two of their responses. There are certainly properties out there waiting for us to find them!

This first one has a 78,000 square foot building for sale or lease (only $4990/month!):

Hello John,image
My love for God and the desire to spread Christ's message is great.  Unfortunately, my family has $500,000 in debt related to the building that needs to be paid off.

It it my desire to have our building used as a center for the spread of the Word.  I just haven't been able to see how to do it.

Having worked in Detroit for most of my life, I can tell you there are wonderful people here, and wonderful people who need to be revived.

I do believe our building would make a great new wine skin for the right organization.  It's a great location that is easy to get to and has thousands of people a day driving past.  It has a good place to meet, reasonable offices and great parking (80 car fenced parking plus street parking).  It even has a raised area in one room…great for leading a worship. 

I just haven't been able to figure out how to make the whole package work for the groups I've talked with.  Maybe I (old wine skin) have not been flexible enough, have not opened my ears and stretched my mind.  Differing from one of your talks, I don't need common sense, but instead uncommon sense.

It might be good to see the building to know if it fits into what is God is reveling to you…or it might spark another revelation…maybe not including us but something much greater. 

And this one is also very interesting:


Thank you for your request.  I unfortunately am not in a position to be able to make such a gift.  The building most likely would not be suitable either.  Wrong zoning and not enough parking would only be a few issues.

I wish you success in finding what you are looking for.  Be persistent.  Those arrangements are possible.  In another line of work, I am currently working for a charity, reviewing the feasibility of the charity accepting the gift of a 100,000 square foot building for their operations.


There you have it. Will you partner with us? You can contact me directly at [email protected] or 313.799.3473. You can donate online at

Thank you! I can’t wait to hear from you! And, BY ALL MEANS, forward this on to all of your friends!!! They may have the connection we’re looking for!!
