PSW Episode 08 - REVIVE: A Church Resurrection Story with Revs. Jenn & Todd Pick

Originally Posted on April 4, a.d. 2023

Following the difficult separation from their home churches due to disaffiliation, several families from the Azle/Weatherford area who wanted to remain United Methodist needed to find a new church home. Thanks to some help from social media, several conversations with Revs. Jenn and Todd Pick, and the nudging of the Holy Spirit, a grass-roots coalition of laity decided to launch a new church and REVIVE the United Methodist presence in the area. Recently Jenn and Todd sat down with POD Strangely Warmed Host Rev. Daniel Hawkins to discuss how this all came together, what they’ve learned in the first 4-6 weeks of hosting services, the fantastic impact of the UMC connection and the power of a trust-filled and active partnership between laity and clergy. As Daniel put it in a pre-production meeting, “This is a wonderful resurrection story to share during Holy Week.”

Jenn, Todd and the entire Revive UMC community would like to thank all those who have supported their ministry through their prayers, words of encouragement and financial support of this new church start. If you’d like to financially support Revive!, there are several ways to give.
