Pastor Randy dreamed of planting a brand new life-giving church with a simple goal- to maximize the chances of seeing lost people find and follow God.
Revolution Church has focused on reaching out to the non-churched and de-churched community by building relationships through small groups. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday services, and the simple style of the Church, all facilitate what we believe will be a Jesus Revolution! At Revolution Church we have a come as you are attitude. We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to pursue after God with passion!
The vision for Revolution Church came to Randy & Amy in January of 2012. Immediately surrendering to the call on their lives, they began to raise support as missionaries to start this brand new life-giving church. In April of 2012, after much research and desire to discover where God would have them to plant this church, they visited McKinney, Texas where God revealed to them His desire for His work to be in this area. They immediately returned back to Ohio, saved up as much money as possible, sold their house, and on January 5, 2013 moved to McKinney! Their first goal was to begin to develop a launch team to help them launch Revolution Church. The first gathering they held was a Superbowl Party in February to get to know their neighbors. 37 people attended the party including an atheist that lived next door. This atheist would later become a follower of Jesus and be one of the first people baptized at Revolution Church. Each month they held launch team meetings in their house to try to find the right team to help them fulfill the vision that God had placed on their hearts for the city.
Through the efforts of the Dream Team, Revolution Church officially launched in Eddin's Elementary School, on April 6, 2014 with 208 people in attendance! God has really blessed the efforts of those who have been obedient to give of their time, talents, and treasure to follow Him with their lives! On November 1, 2015, Revolution Church moved into a storefront building located at 2414 W. University Dr. in McKinney. On December 1, 2016 we acquired the kids space right next to us top have a fully functional kid's wing at Revolution Church!
Since moving to McKinney, Revolution Church has seen over 350 people make decisions to make Jesus their Lord, Leader, and CEO of their lives and close to 105 people follow the Lord in Baptism. Revolution Church currently offers 4 Weekend Life-Change Experiences: Saturday at 5:08pm and Sunday at 9:08, 10:38, & 12:08. We are really excited to see what is in store for Revolution Church in the future. If there is one thing that we know for certain- “The Best is Yet to Come!” We invite you to be a part of the Dream Team of people who are "REVOLUTIONIZING" this community!
Chris Tomlin sings a beautiful song called “I Will Follow” and it describes so appropriately my family’s journey to Revolution Church. At the time that we first visited Rev Church, our family was in a very unhappy place; life was taking its toll on our lives at every turn, it seemed. I had unexpectedly found myself at the end of a long career. I had a teen child who was broken hearted and struggling both emotionally and spiritually, her faith shaken t o its very core. Marriage too, had become a burden, with little joy. Our daughter had grown increasingly more vocal about her desire to rid both church and God from her life, even though she had grown up in a Christ centered home. Over time, my husband and I found ourselves resentful about church as well. The enemy was certainly at work in our home and our family unit was collapsing rapidly. I remember crying out to God to change our situation, to bring healing to our family. It is amazing to see the hand of God at work! When we CALL on Him, when we are faithful to FOLLOW Him, He is ALWAYS faithful to answer and bring us through our circumstance. Where you go, I’ll go Where you stay, I’ll stay When you move, I’ll move I will follow you. As I reflect on those difficult times, I can see that God was actively preparing our path to Revolution Church. We needed a change, something fresh; we needed something new. As a family, we made the decision to visit Revolution Church and we have been blessed beyond words! God re-sparked a passion in our hearts for Him and it is SO amazing to see His hand at work through our circumstances! God is FAITHFUL! He has delivered exactly what our family needed. Our God of restoration, our God of healing, our GREAT, awesome God has provided exactly what we needed and SO much more. He is healing our family! And the greatest gift of all? Our daughter is finding her Savior again! I am thankful beyond words to Revolution Church for its ministry!! And I am so glad to be part of a church that is committed to helping others find and follow Jesus! My precious child included.
Lauren and I stumbled upon Rev Church by happenstance last summer. We had attended a few churches prior, but none made us feel called to serve. At the time Lauren was applying for a job in Kid Revolution, ironically. They hit it of immediately and Lauren began serving in Rev Church the very next Sunday. Lauren has served weekly ever since and now is a Kid Revolution Team Leader. I, however, was not attending yet. Tragically, our daughter passed away August 7th and I saw something I hadn't seen before, Rev Church and it's members stepped up for us during our time of need. Must of them I didn't even know and had never met yet, they supported us with prayers and with meals. Later on, in October I was sleeping in on Sunday when I got a phone call from Lauren. It was one of the church members, Gerrit Gerritsen asking why I was not at church and teasing me. It was at that moment that I realized I had no excuse and felt compelled to attend church. This was a first for me. It was during this attendance that I felt the Holy Spirit pressing on my heart and calling me to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. While attending, I broke down in tears during the sermon which was also a first for me. Ever since, Lauren and I have attended church every Sunday while also serving. I went on to get baptized by Gerrit. Pastor Randy always has heartfelt, passionate sermons that will make you think about how you are living your life. You can clearly see that God has amazing plans in store for Revolution Church. Give them a chance and you won't regret it.
