About Revive Church
Revive Church has been in the making for a few years now. Two churches, Connections Community and Canyon Ridge, had the same goal: to be a place of grace in the Treasure Valley, where anyone could walk through the door and feel loved. We each did ministry on our own, but always felt like there should be more! In the summer of 2014, we felt God calling us to join forces. We strive to be a picture of the unity Jesus calls us to in John 17. We know we’re not perfect, but we believe that God loves us anyway - and we are so excited to share that love with the Valley. To love people to Life..
What We Believe
GOD THE FATHER
With a degree in ministry and a master’s in business, John leverages all his talents discipling men and encouraging small group leaders. He also has an insatiable hunger for God’s word and a supernatural ability to remember everything he reads. John and Laura have 3 grown boys and have been married for over 25 years.
Allegra and her husband Brent have a heart for seeing Christians come to know Jesus in a deep and real way. Allegra has a missions background, loves to learn and works locally as a nurse. She can often be found riding bikes with Brent and their two pups, studying koine Greek and trying to keep a creative staff organized.
Josh and his wife Josie have a strong desire to pour into teenagers and see them grow in Christ. His love for Jesus and extroverted personality help Josh shout it from the rooftops. He is also a talented musician, vocalist and heads up our ever expanding creative team. If you’re looking for a way to use your artistic gifts at church, connect with Josh!
Don’t let the quiet demeanor fool you… Jeff’s passion for Jesus is something to shout about! He feels lucky that he’s able to blend his love for music with his passion for ministry. When he’s not helping his wife Leanne wrangle their three tiny humans, Jeff can be found pouring into and developing others to serve God.
Steven and his wife Rachel are incredible people with an amazing heart to bless others. They avoid the spotlight and serve Revive tirelessly! Steven is the head of our FILO Team (First In, Last Out), making sure the sanctuary, stage and children’s ministry are ready to go every Sunday morning. When they aren’t installing roofs (Steven) or training horses (Rachel), they have special affection for their three dogs, four cats, multiple chickens and a beehive!
Cherie just might be the best part of Revive! She is an incredible light and joy to all of us – the sunniest personality you will ever meet. Cherie is always at the front door, welcoming one and all with grace and incredible love! She coordinates our greeter ministry, runs an amazing (huge!) small group for women and serves those in need. Cherie loves thrifting, crafting and spending time with her husband Jack, with special love for their young granddaughter!
Cherie also heads up our 50s+ ministry, SPF 50!
Sara is passionate about kids’ ministry. She has a master’s degree in early childhood education and uses her training to help young hearts discover how much God loves them.
