About the Ministry
We have held revivals in Southern Baptist, Northern Baptist,
Episcopalian,  Methodist, Open Bible, Church of God,
Assembly of God, Pentecostal Holiness and so many more,
and in spite of the doctrinal differences, God touched hearts
and changed lives.
Revival is God’s direction for man’s reception ... READ 
It made no difference
whether we were in the
USA, Hong Kong, The
Philippines, Africa, Australia
or Europe, God moved
equally because he is no
respecter of persons.  The
touch of God came because
people had a longing to
receive more of Him. 
Language and culture, did not
make a difference.  We have
seen the same move of God
touching the lives of people
right across the globe. We
began to see the Body of
Christ like HE sees us.   In
all our striving to be more
like Jesus, we get a
revelation of who and what
He is.  However, it is what
we do with that revelation
that counts. 
We often place our own interpretation on what God is trying
to communicate with us.  The church has allowed those
differences to divide rather than to allow the Spirit of God to
guide us into all truth and realize that there is none who has
absolute truth.  No matter how perfect we become
doctrinally, we are still that eathern vessel into which God
has placed His precious treasure.
The thing I have discovered is the God loves people in spite
of their denominational leaning and in spite of their doctrinal
errors.  He loves them with His perfect love and sees what
they will become when He finally gains access to their entire
heart, soul and mind. 
That is why revival is imperative.  Revival is a state of your
heart.  According to the dictionary, Revival is the act of
reviving or condition of being revived.   It’s synonyms are
Restoration, Renovation, Revitalization, Rekindling, 
When God revives you, one, you get restored, renovated,
revitalized, your flame is rekindled and He resuscitates you,
so that you can become more effective for God. Your first
love for Jesus is restored and winning souls and bringing
others into a brand new relationship with God becomes your
prime objective.
Where do you fit in the Revival Picture?   If you are dry and
thirsty, then Jesus says in John 7:38 "If any man (includes
women) is thirsty, let him come unto me and drink and out of
his innermost being will flow rivers of living water." 
Oh how we need that living water flowing again.   Spend time
in the presence of the Lord (listen to one of our worship
God bless you richly.

Taking revival to all denominations hungry for God
Our calling is to the Body of Christ that are to be found
in every denomination.   Our desire is to work with the
pastors and leadership of local churches to bring
refreshing and blessing to God's people.  
Our preaching and teaching, cover subjects such as :
In our meetings, we strongly emphasize worship, the
Word of God and the Presence of God. We give the Holy
Spirit opportunity to move in every meeting and we see
His power demonstrated in the lives of many in the form
of healing physically, emotionally and mentally.
Most of the pastors of the churches we go to, report a
renewed interest in their people to pray, read God's
word and witness. They see an increase in both
attendance and income. Many report a decrease in the
number of councelling sessions, as people have received
council from the Holy Spirit.
Seeing change in the lives of people
In every meeting we give the Holy Spirit time to move
and touch His people.  This  is not a planned and
scripted thing, but the whole service is His to do
whatever He desires.  
Most nights we will have an opportunity to preach the
word, but there are times when the Holy Spirit begins to
minister to people during the preaching. The joy of the
Lord is very evident and results in refreshing and
change, new vision, purpose and direction.

The name of our ministry "Times of Refreshing Ministries" is taken from Act 3:19  "When times of refreshing come from the
presence of the Lord"  We have literally seen the refreshing of the Lord poured out on dry and thirsty souls, regardless of the
denominational background.
Ps 85:4 "Restore us, O God of our salvation, And cause Your anger toward us to cease.  (vs 5) Will You be
angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?  (vs 6) Will You not revive us again,
That Your people may rejoice in You?  (vs 7) Show us Your mercy, LORD, And grant us Your alvation.  (vs 8) 
I will hear what God the LORD will speak, For He will speak peace To His people and to His saints; But let
them not turn back to folly."  KJV
Acts 3:19 "So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may
be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of 
reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord;"    Amplified
