Empowered For Mission
Before Jesus ascended into Heaven, he told his disciples to wait until they had been “clothed with power from on high” (Luke 24:49). Jesus expected that if we were truly going to do the ministry He did, we would need to do it alongside the Holy Spirit. Yet so many of us today tend to do ministry out of our own spirit and strength, causing the church to be something less miraculous than what Jesus envisioned.
On May 2nd, 2020, Reveal Wellsburg points us back to the Spirit. The whole church has been empowered for mission and so every Christian must have their gifts revealed to them so that they can cooperate in that mission. The best way to get started in finding your spiritual gifting is to first understand what exactly spiritual gifts are from a Biblical and experiential perspective—for some have gifts that they’re unaware of simply because no one has taught them how they work. Follow one of our three tracks to learn more about the gifting of your choice as we worship, pray, and learn together at Reveal Wellsburg.
Meet Our Speakers
PASTOR JAMIN BRADLEY
Jamin has been the lead pastor at 1208GREENWOOD since he graduated from Spring Arbor University in 2011. Their church runs a Dinner Church on Sunday night that feeds the community and a Nerd Church on Monday night’s that reaches out to a Comic-Con type audience.
Jamin has authored several books, including three on the topic of the Bible’s supernatural worldview and spiritual gifts. The Rush and the Rest, is a more academic look at the topic, while Fantasy IRL, is a condensed version written for those new to the topic or outside of Christianity. His most recent book, The Rise of the Water Kingdom, teaches the same topic through allegorical fantasy.

PASTOR STEVEN HLATKY
Steven is the Lead Pastor at Brooke Hills Free Methodist Church. He graduated from Spring Arbor University with a B.A. in Pastoral Ministry, and is currently pursuing his MBA in International Business at American University. His encounter with the Holy Spirit in his teenage years pushed him to search for and recognize Holy Spirit’s workings in his life and those around him. With a heartbeat for missions, leadership development, and preaching the Word of God, Steven is sure to always commit his work to be influenced and empowered by Holy Spirit.
He believes there is a (w)holistic approach to the ministry we do for the Kingdom of God. One of his favorite ways to end his prayers is: “Lord, may everyone we encounter, encounter you because of our encounter with You.”
