July 12-18 – Revive Minnesota community outreach, in the tent here at Mt. Zion. Various activities each day, starting with prayer at 8:00 am, and concluding with the evening meeting with special speaker/s at 6:30 pm. No Mt. Zion home groups July 13 or July 18 because of Revive Minnesota meetings.
ReviveMinnesota is affiliated with Time To Revive, a national outreach ministry based in Dallas, Texas. The Headwaters Bemidji outreach is just one of many outreaches that have been or will be conducted around the state this year and beyond. The mission of ReviveMinnesota is to come alongside the local Church to see all believers equipped to make disciples. At least 16 Bemidji area churches are officially working together to host and participate in the Headwaters Bemidji activities, with individuals from many other congregations and Christian groups involved as well.
Nightly tent meetings are being held for worship, testimony, preaching, and fellowship, 6:30 pm each evening through this Wed., July 18. The public is invited to these meetings, and all believers are encouraged to invite their family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers to attend. Speakers so far have included Kyle Martin, founder of Time To Revive; Jeff Deyo, worship leader and professor at North Central University; Adam Molina, pastor of Becida Community Church; Josh Edwards, Revive Minnesota team leader, and Wade Aaron from ReviveTexas. Speakers still on the docket are Kaleb Hurley, pastor at Hope Church, Albert Lea, MN; and Kent Dudley, worship leader, performer, and evangelist from Bemidji.
Each day through Wed., July 18, there will be outreach activities to the community, to share the gospel, pray for people, and invite people to the nightly meetings. The outreach activities will be led by staff from Time To Revive and ReviveMinnesota as well as local church leaders and volunteers.
