Second-Generation Church Organizes in Cleveland
Story by Heidi Shoemaker
After two-and-a-half years, the Revive Seventh-day Adventist group in Cleveland was officially organized last fall as the Revive Mission church. Approximately 40 members attended the ceremony, held at the First Cleveland Spanish church—the group’s “mother” or home church.
“This is the first second-generation church in Ohio, a new way to keep our young people safe and active in the church, and at the same time a marvelous new way to attract other young people to the feet of Jesus,” says Peter Simpson, Hispanic Ministries coordinator for the Ohio Conference. Winston Simpson, pastor of Revive, adds, “We welcome this unique church that was born to conquer the heart of this city, which is the youth.”
