We are a network of churches partnering together to mobilize and equip every Christ follower in Tampa Bay as a multiplying disciplemaker so that every man, woman and child in our region has repeated opportunities to see, hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Mobilizing a Movement

…to reach the 3.1 million people in Tampa Bay!

OUR STORY

Outreach & Prayer

It started in 2017 with a retired salesman named Rick, on his knees before the Lord, praying for a work of God in our city. The Lord led Rick to an outreach event in Orlando, where he met some leaders from Time to Revive. Rick and a few Tampa pastors worked with Revive through 2018 to run a personal evangelism campaign in the Apollo Beach area that fall.

In January of 2019 around a dozen pastors came together for our first three day prayer summit. Word began to spread as pastors met and prayed, leading to another prayer summit in 2020. In the summer of 2020 a leadership team was formed and met several times to articulate our mission, vision and values. Through 2021 and ’22 the team clarified our strategy, identifying five key initiatives to reach the Bay area with the gospel. Prayer undergirds and surrounds everything we do, and we praise God for the growing movement of worship and prayer in our region!

Founded on prayer, we are focused on the vision of gospel saturation – that “the knowledge of the glory of the Lord” (Hab. 2:14) would fill Tampa Bay! That is our end game and target – that every man, woman and child in our region would experience the love and grace of Jesus. Learn more about our vision and strategy here.
