Revive Indiana- Ft. Wayne
July 6th - 11th | Three Rivers Festival

Revive Indiana -Fort Wayne


What is Revive Indiana? Revive Indiana is a gathering of local churches and believers who desire to see their lives, congeregations, and communities revived by embracing Jesus Christ, becoming equipped to share the Gospel, and by making disciples. 

What was planned to end on January 18, 2015 in Northern Indiana has only been growing and spreading to other regions and cities in Indiana. Just as the state flag of Indiana depicts 7 rays radiating from a lit torch, Revive Indiana has continued to travel throughout the state, encouraging and equipping a total of 7 cities and regions that are hungry for revival as the Holy Spirit leads. 

Rays of Revival:

  1. Northern Indiana 
  2. Kokomo
  3. Bloomington
  4. South Bend
  5. NWI
  6. Terre Haute
  7. Fort Wayne

After being invited by a group of like-minded pastors, REVIVE INDIANA is excited to travel to the 2nd largest city in Indiana: Fort Wayne. Join us July 6-11, 2015 as we gather and equip believers to share the love of Jesus in this historical city during the Three Rivers Festival. Fort Wayne is the resting place of Johnny Appleseed and home to the first American Fort. May the Lord revive HOPE among His people and bring LIFE to this community.

This revival week that is planned for July 6-11 will use the opportunity of the Three Rivers Festival to share the good news with everyone. The week will consist of daily breakfast and lunch to equip volunteers to actively share their faith. For those called to go out (teams of 3-4 people with an experienced leader), they will be sent to the marketplaces, streets, workplaces and other settings. Every evening the city-wide church will gather in one location for worship, prayer, and sharing. They will experience spiritual revival through the Word. In other cities experiencing revival, thousands have met on these evenings.

Safe Families for Children
Launching Sunday, June 7th 
 

What is Safe Families for Children? 

Safe Families for Children is a national faith-based movement of compassion that gives hope to families in crisis. At its core are Christian families who practice Biblical hospitality by opening their homes to vulnerable children and reaching out to the parents of these children who are struggling to escape the effects of poverty and social isolation. 

The Need
The single biggest factor influencing the lives and outcomes of children is their family. Many families in at-risk environments have good intentions but lack the family support needed to assist them in times of crisis. The children in a family traumatized by crisis become especially at risk for neglect or abuse as their parents struggle alone to cope with crushing circumstances and emotions. By law and policy, most state child welfare agencies are allowed to aid only children who have suffered blatant abuse or neglect, leaving thousands of children and their families in difficult situations. Without assistance, many of these situations will lead to abuse/neglect episodes  with long-lasting consequences for the child. 

The Safe Families Solution
Safe Families for Children (SFFC) is a network of host families that extends the community safety net by providing parents in need a loving home where they can safely place their children in time of crisis. Host Families, prompted solely by compassion, are screened, trained and serve without compensation. As a result, SFFC is a voluntary, non-coercive alternative to the state child welfare system. By temporarily freeing parents from the responsibility of caring for their child, SFFC provides them with time to address personal issues without fear of losing custody. In addition, Host Families and volunteer Family Coaches come alongside the parents, giving them support and mentorship and often becoming and extended family to them after the children return home. 

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

  • Become a host family
  • Become a family coach
  • Become a family friend
  • Offer professional services
  • Join the prayer team

Ministry Opportunities:

Cares for children in the home while also ministering to the placing parents. Prompted solely by compassion, each host family is screened and approved (background checks, fingerprints, home evaluation, etc.) Safe Families for Children may serve children of all ages, but each individual Host Family determines the profile of the children they are able to host in their home. 

Facilitates the relationship between the placing parents and the host family during a placement. Their two primary areas of ministry are:

  1. Supporting the host family and ensuring the well-being of the children in care
  2. Providing support and mentorship to the placing parents. (Experience in social work is highly valued but not required.)

We believe prayer is crucial to the ministry of Safe Families for Children. You can join this team by receiving monthly updates via email or by being matched with a host family to pray for them throughout a placement. 

Family Friends come alongside the Host Family and/or placing parents to provide encouragement and support during the time of placement which could include:

  • Respite Care
  • Transportation
  • Meal team
  • Support
  • Mentoring
  • Resources: Most children come with very few supplies and possessions. Therefore, the donation of children's items, including diapers, formula, and clothing are very helpful.   

Contacts
If you are interested in being a part of the Safe Families for Children Ministry or have any questions please contact Jen Bergdall at jbergdall@yahoo.com or call/text (260) 341-3511

Baptism is not a condition for salvation, but rather an act of obedience brought to completion when you have chosen to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Baptism allows you to make a public declaration of your faith in Christ. Know that only your acceptance of Christ ensures your salvation.

 


Celebrate Recovery 
Starting Monday, October 5th @ County Line
A Christ-Centered Recovery Program 

 

The purpose of "Celebrate Recovery" is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles. This experience allows us to "be changed". We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God's grace in solving the problems in our lives. 

By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. 

AS WE PROGRESS THROUGH THE PROGRAM WE DISCOVER OUR PERSONAL, LOVING, AND FORGIVING HIGHER POWER - JESUS CHRIST.

The Celebrate Recovery Program began in 1991 at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California. The program is now active in every state and many countries. Saddleback created the workbook materials, and provides support on many levels to churches who offer the program. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Designed for adults 18 and older to help them deal with drug & alcohol addiction, depression, low self-esteem, anger & frustration, eating disorders, child abuse, divorce, sexual abuse, co-dependency, pornography, grieving, loneliness, abandonment issues, self-harming, dysfunctional families, workaholism, pride, selfishness, and more.   

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change. The courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is; Not as I would have it; Trusting that You will make all things right if I surrender to Your will; So that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next.

AMEN 

-Reinhold Niebuhr
