The Reversal…One Year Later:
We are beyond excited to celebrate our first year as a ministry! Where did the time go? What started as a Bible study of about 12 guys huddled in a Living Room opening God’s Word has turned into something much bigger than any of us could have imagined. When God began to burden my heart in early 2010 for this community in Nashville I’ll admit that I didn’t know exactly where this would lead. God was gracious to show me a great need in our own backyard. With new eyes I saw the wreckage of lives in the music industry – affected by divorce, addiction and spiritually lost. Since then we have walked day by day with a focused vision; living out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, by the Grace of God, amongst a group of people that are all too often lonely and wandering. In this last year we’ve celebrated lives being changed, salvation coming to the lost, the starting of recovery, and a new found unity in this artist’s community. We are excited to see what the next year holds, as we continue to celebrate life, serve, and share the love of Christ!
Scheduled Monthly Donations Now Available:
You can now set up a scheduled donation (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly) by clicking here! This is something we have been hoping to offer since we began last year and we’re happy to finally announce it. You’ll notice that the heading is for Joshua’s Mission, that’s because they are our parent ministry. All giving will be for the work of The Reversal. And of course if you prefer to use PayPal or snail mail that is still an option.
Please join us in prayer for:
- Online community: This summer will see the launch of The Reversal on The City (thanks to a generous partnership with Zondervan). We believe this will be one of the most effective forms of ministry that we undertake. We pray this will be a safe and secure place for those so often displaced from fellowship, consistent teaching and community. There are many bands and artists outside of the Nashville area excited about joining us online – this is a movement!
- New groups beginning: It is likely that before the next update from us we will see our small groups double in number. We have 3 new studies in the works, including: A daytime discussion of Tim Keller’s The Reason for God; a women’s weekly study (for female artists) and one more Reversal small group. Pray for open hearts, unity and a hunger to study God’s Word.
- Spouse Bruch: Ashley will be gathering spouses for a brunch and time of fellowship on Saturday, June 25th. Pray that we could love and serve these families well. That our home and ministry would be a place of refuge and restoration for these wives who are so often alone.
- 1st Annual Fundraiser: We are in the early stages of planning our first fundraiser that will take place in Nashville at the end of August. Pray that doors would open so that we can share our vision with many others as we prepare for an even bigger year in 2012. Stay tuned for more details as this comes together.
Thank you for taking the time to read,
