Church Planting in Montana, USA

May 18, 2018 | NEWS FROM THE NATIONS

Our Church in Missoula (Montana, USA) celebrated its 40th birthday in

July 2017. It was a milestone year as we changed our name from Clark Fork City Church to Revive. As God has linked us personally with the people in Regions Beyond we have been stirred to be involved in global mission and the passion for church planting also had an affect on us. From our main congregation God inspired our team to start two new congregations, which we would love to have you praying for!

One is in our Downtown area, led by Ben and Heather Ritner and a team of three other couples. They meet Sunday nights in a space used by another church that doubles as an art gallery/event center. They are a younger group, young adults/millennials who love God, are passionate in worship and want to reach people who are un-churched.

Our second new congregation is in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley, about 25 miles from our original location. We had over 30 adult members commuting each Sunday a considerable distance and we are excited to announce they launched a new congregation on Good Friday of this year! Their first Sunday service was on Easter and they had just under 100 people in attendance. They are led by Stacy and Anne Ratliff and also have a capable launch team of four couples. This Mothers’ Day weekend they hosted a mother-and-daughter tea with around 60 people.

We covet your prayers as we are stretching in a big way in terms of three worship teams, three locations and all of western Montana in our sights. Josh Yakos
