Opening Night at Revival Church tomorrow, Saturday, July 13th at 7pm!

Experience an atmosphere of intimacy, intercession and passionate teaching in our new prayer-fueled setting in Warren!

image Tomorrow is a special night and YOU are invited to celebrate with us!

Revival Church is serious about seeing prayer returned to first place in the church—and in the main church service.

Tomorrow night you will experience a fiery atmosphere of intimate prayer and passionate decrees just before I bring a message on our eternal perspective. We can be intimate with Jesus FOREVER—starting NOW!


The coffee will be ready at 6pm, and you can enjoy it with friends, or you can bring it into the Prep Room for fiery pre-service prayer!

Revival Church is located at 26091 Sherwood, Warren, MI 48091.


We are adding three BRAND NEW prayer and teaching nights to the calendar!

■ Mondays Night Teaching on Historic Revivals • 7-9pm • Beginning July 15th
just what did it take for revival to break out through some of history’s most remarkable leaders?

■ Tuesday Night Teaching on Intimacy & The Tabernacle • 7-9pm • Beginning July 16th
This 13-week class will transform your life!

On Tuesday nights we will peer into God’s incredible passion to commune with His own people as seen through the design and structure of the Tabernacle. Each detail in the cloth, the furniture, the spices, the offerings and priests of the Tabernacle foreshadow what was to come in Jesus Christ.  Get a copy of, “Seeing Christ in the Tabernacle” by Ervin Hershberger for $4.99 on Amazon Kindle and read  the first chapter, “Ark of the Covenant” as we explore these amazing images of Jesus Christ.

■ Wednesday Night Bible Study • 7-9pm • Beginning July 17th
“I have written to you, young men (and women), Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
And you have overcome the wicked one.”   – 1Jn 2.14b

As I prayed for God’s direction for the Wednesday night Bible study, I heard one simple 1-syllable word in my spirit…”strong”.  It’s so easy for many of us to hear a good word or a good teaching and we receive it with great emotion.  And it’s great to receive the truth of God’s Word with joy.  The truths regarding His unending love and mercy and even His redemptive judgments are great liberators that set our hearts free and on fire.

But when the circumstances and storms of life come and challenge what we believe, the truth of God’s Word needs to be rooted and grounded deep in our hearts.  It is only when we understand His Word and His promises in the context of His will and divine purposes that we can effectively stand on them, and stand on them, and persevere, and see His Kingdom established in our lives.  It’s when His Word is rooted deep in our gut that we’re able to pray and decree and legislate from our God given authority and status as His sons and daughters.

This is what we’re called to do. We’re called to take a city.

On Wednesday nights, we’re going to go deep.  We’re really going to take our time and allow the truth of God’s Word to germinate and take root and get deep into our hearts.  Then, when we pray, we will ask for what we desire, and it will be done for us, Jn 15.7.

I’m really excited about studying the Book of Ephesians.  And the more I study, the more excited I get.  Did you know that the Book of Ephesians is considered to be a NT parallel to the Book of Joshua of the OT?  Joshua led the children of Israel into their Promised Land and Ephesians is all about entering and walking in our inheritance in Christ.  Did you know that Ephesians is considered the “crown jewel” or capstone of Paul’s theology?  Did you know that while Romans was used to spark the Reformation, Ephesians and its central theme of unity in the Body of Christ will be used by God to bring unity to His True Bride before the return of the Lord?

But while the truths in Ephesians have many applications to our church corporately and the regional church we are called to serve, the power and the strength and the might that they convey to the human spirit on a personal level are simply life-changing.

I hope you will join me for a season of strength and “body-building” as we uncover, assimilate and apply the powerful redemptive truths of the Book of Ephesians.
