PDX Revolution | 24/7 goes Live.

The first wave of the Revolution is about to go live! PDXRevolution.Com will go live as soon as I get my Debit card, I have opened a bank account to use for PDX Revolution. This is to accept donations to help support the Revolution.

Starting April 30th at midnight, The broadcast will start! I have finally got a “professional” grade setup, 2 systems with one always sending data, I can go live through the broadcast machine anytime I need to (Like if I do a live broadcast) Most broadcasts will be pre-recorded as my schedule doesn’t allow for me to always be here when the show should air (Tuesdays at 5pm) I will do the very first broadcast of The Merval Show LIVE and see how it works.

Updates will be posted as they show them selfs.

Revolution moves forth.

Well, Here are the things that have happened so far.

I am still preparing for my KPSU test, I want to make sure that I pass the first time around.

PDXRevolution WILL start broadcasting May 1st. I am hoping to have everything set by then.

Shane is the Prayer leader for the ministry. I am looking into taking the P.I.T. Crew class at Living Hope (P.I.T. stands for Pastors In Training) Yes I am going to become a youth pastor, or thats my intention at least :-D I figure if I am going to have a ministry reaching out to youth and teens in need of help and guidance I might as well be a paster to help them in more then the connection aspect.

You can’t have a ministry without a pastoral staff of some sort ;-)

So thats todays update.

Expect a podcast in the next week or so.

Church Rents Portland Arena for Easter

During a weekend of services at the Living Hope Church last month, the Rev. John ­Bishop announced that a special collection would be taken.

The money brought in ­during the 21 services at five campuses would be used for Easter. Bishop, thinking the total would be about $20,000, said the amount would determine where and how the holiday would be celebrated.

The collection ended up ­being $100,000, enough to rent Portland’s Rose Garden.

For the first time, an Easter Sunday service will be conducted in the arena. The facility has a capacity of more than 19,000. More than 4,000 people have already ­registered online to attend.

Registration is not required, and anyone is welcome to attend, Bishop said. Church leaders are already expecting up to 10,000 for Easter Sunday.

The church, founded 10 years ago, now has a membership of 6,000 with an average weekend attendance of 5,200. Living Hope offers 12 services at five sites. Crossroads Community Church, ­another of the larger Christian ­congregations, has about 5,000 members.

Last year, the church expanded to include five campuses on Easter Sunday. During that weekend, 8,000 people attended.

Living Hope is an independent church that offers contemporary worship, Bishop said. They also ­offer “spontaneous baptisms” for people who answer the call to ­become Christians.

“They get up right there in their clothes and get baptized,” he said.

Bishop, the senior pastor at ­Living Hope, plans to have pools on hand on Easter Sunday. He hopes to perform a record number of baptisms that day. In the last two years, more than 2,000 people have been ­baptized at Living Hope.

His philosophy is every service of the year should feel like the holiday.

“Jesus rose from the dead; that ought to be celebrated every single week,” he said. “This is not about ­Living Hope. We just want to see people cared for, to see them come to a relationship with Christ. When the day is over, the most important thing is that lost people are found.”
