August 17th Esther Short Park
Tonight at Lifegroup was exactly what I needed. My spiritual fire was getting small and I needed food to feed that fire, and tonight was just that. After Shane’s message we broke out into groups (guys and gals in seperate groups) and guy time was just what I need. To be able to completely open up and just pour out everything on the table without fear or judgement is amazing. God says in his word that before we can confess to God our sins we must confess before man, I would suggest ALL of you that are NOT involved in a Lifegroup to seriously join up with one! Doing life with a group of people you can rely on for support in all aspects of your life is where its at! I feel so blessed to have met guys like Shane, Dan Stephens and Zeb.
People in a lifegroup will live life with you and get to know you and help you, but you have to be willing to give everything your taking. You can’t listen to everyone else pour out their struggles and lie about your own. Do not fear judgement in a lifegroup, it is a loving bunch. Lukewarm Christians really would not feel welcome in a Lifegroup environment.
Revelation 3:16 says, “So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”
I love you all!

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.
PDX Revolution | 24/7
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 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.
This website and Dans Livejournal have offically been cross posted, anything from here goes there ENJOY!!

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.”
