Ravenhill to speak at Berryville Christian Church this Sunday
David Ravenhill will be at Berryville Christian Fellowship Sunday, Feb. 7. He will speak at 11 a.m. on "Recovering Your Cutting Edge" and will also speak at 6 p.m. on "Forgiveness."
Berryville Christian Fellowship is located at 205 W. College, behind the Williams Shopping Center (where Price Cutter is located). Praise and worship begins at 10 a.m.
Ravenhill's burden is to see the Church come to maturity through intimacy with God.
He was born in England in 1942. He graduated from Bethany Fellowship Bible College in Minneapolis where he met and married his wife Nancy.
In their early years, David and Nancy served with David Wilkerson's first Teen Challenge Center in New York City.
Following that they worked with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) for six years which included two years in Port Moresby, Papua, New Guinea.
From 1973-1988 Ravenhill was on the pastoral team of one of New Zealand's largest churches, the New Life Center in Christchurch. He and Nancy returned to the states in 1988. The following year they joined the senior leadership team of Kansas City Fellowship under the leadership of Mike Bickle.
From 1993 Ravenhill served as the senior pastor of a thriving church in Gig Harbor, Wash.
He resigned in 1997 to commence a full-time itinerant ministry throughout the United States and overseas.
He and Nancy have three grown daughters, two sons-in-law and seven grandchildren.
Ravenhill has written five books published by Destiny Image. The Ravenhills have recently relocated to Siloam Springs, from where he continues his itinerant ministry.
