Jim Tegelhutter has a passion to see a genuine, authentic move of God. Not some man-made “emotion-fest,” but a legitimate outpouring of the Holy Spirit where men’s hearts are truly changed. Early in his ministry “tour of duty,” a mentor started him reading faith generals of old like Charles Spurgeon, Charles Finney, Leonard Ravenhill, Robert Murray M’Cheyne, Smith Wigglesworth, John Wesley, Duncan Campbell… to name a few. This caused a deep longing in Jim to truly see the God of the Bible for as He really is and since then, he has been on a relentless pursuit of real revival, serving here in the states and preaching in Guatemala, Ecuador, Africa and England. Having been in full time ministry since 1986 contending for a generation as he worked with crisis teenagers, Jim now serves as the Lead Pastor of Revive. Jim and his wife Monique (along with their daughter Abbey) moved from Minnesota to call central Florida their home as of July of 2012. Jim has a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership from Bethel University in St. Paul, MN and is currently working on his PhD at Southeastern University.
Yaphet had an encounter with the Holy Spirit in September 2005 which changed the direction of his life. That experience led him to become intentional finding his God ordained purpose in the Lord. His passion is to see the 'Fire of God' fall on His people. One of his favorite scriptures is found in Zechariah 4:6b ('Not by might nor by power but by My Spirit, says the Lord of host'). Over the years, he's ministered or volunteered in areas of intercessory prayer, youth ministry, outreach, and past seven years part of an Orlando Men's Ministry serving those in transitional housing. Yaphet understands, he's only able to do anything by the Spirit of God. He enjoys serving the Lord and church leadership. In October 2018, he started attending Revive Church and believed it was a divine call from what the Lord communicated with him earlier that year. As bi-vocational, Yaphet's career field is educational marketing and now as Executive Pastor, he'll oversee ministry services. He has a Bachelor's degree in Physical Education from Towson University and moved to Central Florida in 1998. Yaphet loves spending time with his children Jaden and Paeton. He also enjoys talking about or reading anything related to entrepreneurship. Matt 6:33, "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you".
John and Heidi Schultz were married in Berlin Germany on October 3, 1989, one month before the Berlin Wall came down. Exactly one year later in 1990, East and West Germany also became one on October 3rd. Jesus reconciled John and Heidi to Himself in June of 1992. They have been in various ministries for Christ for the past 27 years, often serving in startup churches through their early growth. They teach and minister God's word in unique ways. They have lived in Berlin Germany, the Washington DC area, Clermont Florida, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania where Jesus told them not to lay down roots after arriving there in 2013, and He returned them to Central Florida and Revive Church in 2017. They also have a house near the IHOP 24/7 worship center in Kansas City, Missouri where their daughter Jarah now ministers. Between the two of them, they speak seven foreign languages with varying fluency. They are passionate about raising awareness of the depth of God's love, by teaching and living the hidden treasure found in the God's word.
