Loudoun One Revival: Sharing the unified outlook of the Gospel
one loudoun matrixPastor Michelle C. Thomas, Holy & Whole Life Changing Ministries International, provides the final message, Ezekiel 37: 1-11 on third night of One Loudoun tent revival at Ida Lee Park in in Leesburg.
One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One Loudoun, Reconciled by Faith

"Spreading the Gospel" in the spirit of the Great Commandment of "love, unity and reconciliation" (Matthew 28:19-20, John 17: 20-23).

May the Body of Christ in Loudoun County remain intact, increase and be unified.

Many, many folks have been praying for revival and awakening in Loudoun County for two decades. These tent revival events were an opportunity to take another step closer to seeing our prayers and hopes come to fruition. The One Loudoun Church Revival was comprised of a series of praise meetings and youth rallies held August 12-14 from 7:00-9:00 pm under the tents in the fields outside of Ida Lee Park along Rt.15 Business/King St.

These three nights have been a wonderful time of worship, prayer, preaching and a powerful unifying of the Body of Christ across denominational, ethnic and cultural lines with different local pastors and worship teams ministering each night. The objective was to introduce people to Jesus Christ and be empowered to stir the heart of the nation back to God. The desire is for churches and believers from across the county to come together in unity to glorify our Lord and for the lost to be saved.

In addition to the main tent revival services, each night a youth rally was held concurrently alongside the main revival services with youth pastors and youth bands leading the worship.

The Message - "We're Better Together" Ezekiel 37:1-11, Pastor Michelle C. Thomas, Holy & Whole Life Changing Ministries International, Lansdowne Va.

A summary of Pastor Michelle’s message is as follows:

Trained as a Pastor but called as a Prophet, Pastor Michelle C. Thomas stood as a watchman on the city wall and delivered a prophetic message of "revival and new life." She said "Just as Ezekiel often felt he was speaking to the dead, as he preached to the exiles that rarely responded to his message, your church pews may seem to be filled with dry bones, spiritually dead with little hope for revitalization! But just as God promised to restore his nation, he can restore any church, any pastor, any leader, any city or anybody he chooses to use for his Glory, no matter how dead their situation may appear!

There are three keys to overcoming your dry place.

1. Never give up. - Rather than give up pray for renewal! The hope and prayer of every church should be that God will pour out his spirit on it!

2. Prophesy/speak life to your dry bones, your dry situations, your dry marriages, your dry finances, your dry churches, your dry businesses and your dry dreams. Speak the word and don't worry about the response. See what God says about your situation, the results belong to God!

3. Be open to life giving opportunities that unite the body! God is at work calling his people back to himself and bring new life to dead churches. If God is in it, he will breathe on it and give life to it!

Prayer: Father make us one, diverse in gifts and talents, yet undivided in our assignment and love for you! Lord you've outlined your design for unity in the Body of Christ in Ephesians 4:16 "From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." Help us to model your kingdom design that the world may know, "How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity." Psalm 133:1

Alter Call

Remarks/Benediction 9:15 PM

A final thought to the church congregations of Loudoun County. So the message is that we should celebrate our common identity and mission while acknowledging and providing thanks for our individual ministries without pride or attitude of superiority. And this is the diverse unity we are all called to perform. This message is relevant to each congregation and to the entire Body of Christ, divided into denominations and fellowships that are unique in their interpretation of service and mission. However they should be unified in purpose for worship, service and mission.

Everyone can take responsibility to assist our communities in enlisting the active presence of God and finding strategic direction and empowerment for accomplishing the goals of gospel ministry together in and through our Loudoun Churches. We do not believe that Jesus desires us to all join the same church or that we will all agree on every point of doctrine. However we can indeed pray for a movement of God for the visible unity of His whole church. Jesus desires us to come to “complete unity.”

136 adults and 38 children attended the third night of revival.

Night and Day Worship on the Mall with David’s Tent DC
david's tent dc
An Unprecedented Opportunity in This Generation

10,000 hour love song...

Never before has there been such an opportunity for 24/7 outdoor worship. Here in the heart of America, over a year of praise will erupt from the National Mall. In Washington DC, there is a passionate group of believers revealing what it means to be a Christian in worship at the public square. David's Tent DC is seeking to mobilize the entire Church of America to the capital city to sustain a 24/7/365 song of worship to our Lord Jesus, in the pattern of David’s Tabernacle. This initiative is gathering synergy as it resonates with Christians throughout America seeking to bring Jesus back into the center of public conversation.

David's Tent DC is scheduled to run day and night from September 11, 2015 through November 8, 2016 in Washington, D.C. Not since biblical times has a worship tent been placed with such prominence for so long a period of time in a capital city. David’s Tent is located within view of the White House, the U.S. Capitol, and under the shadow of the Washington Monument. This is the 4th consecutive year David’s Tent has been hosted in Washington, D.C. Since 2012, hundreds of worship teams have participated attracting thousands of believers from all 50 states.

"On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old"

Commencing September 11, in the spirit of Amos 9:11, David's Tent DC will lift a love song to Jesus for 14 wonderful months, ending November 8, 2016.

Will you be part of Jesus' dream of day and night worship in the heart of the capital? Will we grasp this historical opportunity?

Loving Jesus is our only agenda

David’s Tent has the very specific focus of loving on Jesus from the most central point of our nation. David's Tent is not protesting anything, not lobbying for anything and not seeking political change. They are not promoting any social or political viewpoint. Just simply seeking to provide Jesus the love and honor that He is due from this city and this nation.

Everything that comes from the stage should be worship, thanksgiving, and adoration for Jesus. David's Tent requests that there be no preaching, political opinions, or extended intercession from the stage - only worship.

We are happy to be here!

This is a celebration of the goodness and beauty of Jesus, who has opened up the way of salvation for all mankind. That’s good news! David's Tent wants to offer up so much love to Jesus that He just can’t resist bringing His presence to our city and nation in a greater way than ever before. There are more than enough beautiful things about Jesus and what He has done to fill countless worship sets. It is requested that worship leaders and staff focus on praise and adoration from the stage rather than petitions or intercession.

Organizers will begin preparations for the tent itself on September 7th, and kick off the 10,000 hour love song at 7pm on September 11th, 2015! The song will run continuously through the presidential election-day, November 8th, 2016.

Prepare your heart

Finally, don’t forget that a heart that is connected to Jesus and clean of known sin is the most important piece of equipment in your suitcase. Before you come, please spend time centering your heart on Jesus and asking the Holy Spirit to take you to deeper levels of intimacy with Jesus.

Kingdom Greetings Pastors,

Revival is coming to Loudoun in August! It is often said that as goes Loudoun, so goes Virginia, and as goes Virginia, so goes the nation. Amid the rapid rise in the tumultuous climate of adversity and cultural shifts, America seems to be dividing itself into two Nations. Loudoun County stands on the verge of seeing dramatic change for the advancement of righteousness, justice and transformational evangelism. Now is the time for Loudoun’s churches to rise up and take the lead in this new “healing and reconciliation” movement that will turn hearts back to the Father, and unite the county as ONE, regardless of race, gender, class, age or religion.

Imagine this…. The One Loudoun Revival 2015 - Loudoun’s Inter-faith Churches gathering for a three night Camp Meeting Styled "Old Fashioned Tent Revival".
