Revived Fellowship started as an idea and a longing for something deeper than just a once a week interaction with other believers. What we craved was something deeper—connections that ran soul deep and got to the heart of life and biblical issues. All too often, our relationships with our church members only run surface deep. We craved relationships that went much deeper; relationships that would surpass the typical Sunday morning friendships and carry on beyond the walls of our weekly fellowship.
At Revived you are invited to come as you are—brokenness and all. We are all a little rough around the edges but you will be welcomed with open arms. We can't wait to meet you!
If you were to ask us who we are, we would tell you that we were two sinners saved by a miraculous grace; two people God brought back from the deepest valleys and chose to give the opportunity to share his abounding grace with others.
We met while working together in the Critical Care Unit at our local hospital in Dothan, Alabama. We had a whirlwind romance; finding ourselves meeting, marrying, and moving to Florida in less than a year. The military has been good to us and allowed us to travel and see the country side by side. We've been married 12 years and have three children—Noah (11), Jonah (7) and Sarah (2); and a fur baby, Augustus.

Our passion lies with sharing God's grace and His faithfulness with everyone we meet.

I am a graduate of Grand Canyon University with a degree in Christian Studies but, we as a couple count our qualifications as only a function of a loving God. He alone sent His son to die for us; to bring us into relationship with His Father. He empowers us to live a life as He designed, by the breath of His Holy Spirit. To this end, we are servants, of you and the Most High God.
