Back in November of 2018 the Lord spoke to me clearly about stepping into full time ministry in the fall of the upcoming year. At this time of my life I was confused and found myself asking God what that was supposed to look like. I felt as though I had wasted my time going to school for teaching, spending my energy and time on a degree that He was telling me to leave behind. Thank God that our feelings so often don't align with the truth of God's promises.
About a year and a half ago the Lord prompted my family to start a young adults ministry in Cincinnati, Ohio. With no worship team, no money, and no idea what we were doing, we stepped out in faith and launched Revive Ministries. Ever since that day the Lord has exceeded our expectations by providing everything we've needed to sustain this movement. I have learned that our yes is all He wants from us, the rest He takes care of. Choosing to partner with Jesus on this crazy, beautiful journey has been the best decision I've ever made. So I'll keep saying yes, over and over again, I'll say yes.
Since that first faithful step Revive has grown more than we could imagine and we are learning how to continue sustaining what the Lord has entrusted us with. With Sunday services, Tuesday family dinners, and Wednesday connect groups, we find ourselves busier than ever (not to mention every other event). I had originally thought the Lord was calling me into full time ministry to solely focus on Revive but he revealed other plans as well.
One of my hearts' cries is for all people to be discipled and to disciple others. I have met amazing people this past year that have taught me what discipleship looks like, how to hear His voice, and how to disciple others. The tools I've been taught have changed my life and now I feel as though it would be selfish of me to not share them. This upcoming year I will be traveling to a few different places to teach discipleship and train people in what it means to make disciples. My very first trip will be to Jacksonville, FL where I will be teaching these tools to IDT students. I know that this is just the beginning of many trips to teach what God has placed on my heart.
Knowing my life would soon become one of full time ministry, I have faithfully come to terms with the idea of never again having a steady paycheck and relying on God to be my full time provider.
I want to ask for your help both financially and in faith. Join me in this journey as I continue stepping out in faith and teaching others how to answer The Call, which is "to go and make disciples". Would you prayerfully consider a financial gift or becoming a monthly supporter? If you'd like to hear more, please feel free to contact me!
Much love, Angelina Misyukovets
