Mark Gunderman writes and solicits articles that reflect the Church ministries and faith-based organizations' spiritual rhythm and follows the seasons of the Church. The Church and its ministries are relevant for news articles all year round, not just during Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Church and the media have many philosophical differences, yet common denominators link them together. Both have a message they want to articulate. An inherent responsibility for both is to communicate successfully.

"If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all and servant to all" (Mark 9:35).

One Loudoun Church Revival 2016 - a spirit of Christian unity

07/28/2016 - Loudoun United - Four Fridays in August at four different churches and three locations in Sterling, Ashburn and Leesburg.

Now is the time for all generations, all denominations, and backgrounds to Unite together in faith, hope and love in God. The John 17 “Be One” movement, symbolizes one of the dominant, new religious overtones of the 21st Century – “a spirit of Christian unity.”

Join us for One Loudoun Revival 2016, every Friday night in August, as Loudoun comes together “As One” in prayer for our county, for our nation, and for our world - 2 Chronicles 7:14.

Last year’s inaugural three-day tent styled Revival & Youth Crusade took place at the historic Ida Lee Park in Leesburg. Churches of different denominations, ethnicity, generations and member size, converged on the historic grounds of the park. Over 650 believers from across the county spent time praying and worshiping together, sharing the Gospel, and working hand in hand with non-believers. The gatherings reflected the love of Christ, and expressed the spirit of unity, as they served the community as one body.

One Loudoun Revival did not calculate success by enlisting high profile speakers and bands, seeking huge crowds and corporate sponsorships. We measured our success by the testimonies of life changing encounters with Christ.

Beginning with our nightly pastors and leaders round table discussions and dinners, the event included a countywide team of intercessors, diverse praise, worship teams, and multi-cultural bands. Gifted local pastors with a heart for unity provided a nightly community call to action and inspiring gospel messages of faith, hope and love. One Loudoun Revival continues to receive testimonies of healing, reconciliation, renewed faith, covenant relationships and salvation from revival participants.

This year, the One Loudoun Revival 2016 theme is “Loudoun United.” Amid the horrific tragedies facing our county and around the world, we know that sin is at the root of it all, and the solution to the world’s problems is Jesus Christ. This is the season where the Church must rise up and be more committed than ever to loving Jesus and loving each other. “God’s love manifested though his people is the catalyst for change.” During the month of revival, we will all have the opportunity to express the love of Jesus Christ together in three significant ways:

Unity, Evangelism and Community Service

Unite - Each Friday Night in August, churches will gather at one of our four host sites in Loudoun County. Pastors and their spouses will share a meal at 6:00 pm, while participating in informative roundtable discussions and community forums. Loudoun Intercessors across congregations will assemble at 6:00 pm and engage in harp and bowl style intercession and worship.

Evangelize Together - Each Night our Revival Services and Youth Crusades will start at 7:00 pm with dynamic worship led by local bands, choirs and gospel recording artists. Local pastors will share an inspiring gospel message each night, ending with the “great invitation” – Matthew 11:28.

Serve Together – Volunteers will collect school supplies nightly during the youth crusade for our community Back to School Supply Drive and Backpack Giveaway Friday Aug 26 at Oak Grove Baptist Church in Sterling .

Each one of us 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 have to attend the same church or 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.”
