All areas of Logan County are being touched this week, from Ridgeway and Indian Lake in the northern corners, to DeGraff and Quincy and West Liberty in the south, and Bellefontaine in the center, by volunteers both local and from out of the area who have a simple but important message to share— the gospel of Christ and being a practical example of God’s love.

The revive:Logan County program began Friday evening during a kick-off service at the host church, Bellefontaine First Church of God. The revival continues through Thursday, made possible through the collaboration of a number of local churches and their invitation to representatives with the Dallasbased ministry Time to Revive — operating locally as reviveOHIO — to come to the area.

Since the fall of 2016, reviveOHIO also has visited Allen, Auglaize, Darke, Fayette, Mercer, Miami and Shelby counties, as well as the Dayton area. Time to Revive has been committed to pursuing revival in the U.S. for the last 10 years.

Mark Burd, reviveOHIO co-chairman, said Tuesday that during each day of the revival, teams of volunteers drive to specific locations in the county, with maps in hand, and they are able to connect with community members in various ways.

It might be through encounters at area grocery stores or restaurants or even while people are walking down the street or filling their car’s tank at a gas station. Other times, it’s during scheduled visits, such as a stop at the Logan County Jail Tuesday morning, a meeting with an after school club at Bellefontaine Intermediate School Tuesday afternoon, or visits with officers and other employees at the Bellefontaine Police Department Monday afternoon.
