Jesus loves you berry much!
That’s right! Whether you’ve been to church all your life or you’ve never set foot in a church, Jesus loves you berry much! That’s why we’re so excited to be invited back again to have Declare on the Square, where all the churches across Troy and Miami County will unite together and invite EVERYONE to join in as we celebrate the good news and hope of Jesus in the heart of the Strawberry Festival. Check out the video below for more about what is coming!
Let’s Serve Together!
This year we have asked the simple question of the Strawberry Festival: How Can We Help? The leadership of the festival shared with us the opportunity to staff the shuttle stations throughout the weekend. What a perfect opportunity to serve and be the hands and feet (and smiles!) of Jesus as we invite everyone to the Strawberry Festival throughout the weekend! Never been a greeter before? No problem! Never been to church before? No problem! We’re looking for all hands and friendly faces on deck to bless every person who comes through Troy for Strawberry Donuts :) Please sign up for a 2-hour slot to volunteer at the button below!
NOTE: It looks like we have some pretty good coverage through churches for the Saturday times—we could still use more help then, but if you have any availability to serve on Sunday, please sign up for a Sunday slot. Thank you!!
We have the opportunity to partner with student ministries across the city and The Cleft to hold Rise Together—an annual event designed to challenge students all across the Dayton area to change the narrative of their city. We're expecting hundreds of students to be impacted with the message of hope in Jesus to inspire change in their city starting with them. Change starts here!

Months ago we walked into Dayton’s city hall and asked the question, “What could a whole lot of churches do to help?” Now, we’re underway to have the largest cleanup the city has ever seen! We will be picking up trash around approximately 3,700 empty / vacant homes / businesses! This is an excellent opportunity for your church, sports team, school, or just simply you! Please come out and help us! We need all hands on deck for this opportunity!! Let’s be the hands and feet of Jesus as we love on our city!

From when we began, we have been praying for God to grow and multiply the vision of His people publicly declaring His glory outside of the Dayton region. We are very excited for that to take place at Declare Cincinnati on September 30th on Fountain Square!
We have been praying about this and talking with leaders in Cincinnati for two years, seeking the Lord's direction for when and where. God has now brought people together from various backgrounds and locations around the city with one heart: to have One Night to stand as One Church--Jesus on Display for the entire city of Cincinnati! Stand with us!
Pastors and leaders in Springboro have reached out to us--they want to stand in the heart of their community to share the love of Christ through both their words and actions! This event isn't about any one church... but all of the churches coming together as one to bless the community!

We are partnering with Bethel Christian Church and churches and schools across the city to rally students across Greater Dayton to rise above the lies they hear every day. We want them to know that they have worth and value rooted in Christ. We want to see students rise above addiction and rise above the false promises of drugs and alcohol. All students have potential that just needs unlocked through the power of the Word. Reggie Dabbs will be the guest speaker and he will be sharing some powerful truths about who these students actually are and what they are able to do when they are focused and set on Christ.

Pastors and leaders around the Northmont area have already been gathering for months to pray over the community together--and we believe it is time to invite others to join us for Declare Northmont!
We're calling believers to action! There are thousands of people within miles of us who are hurting and broken. As God's people, we know the One who brings hope, purpose and eternal life! Matthew 9:38 teaches, "Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
It is time to pray earnestly for our community! That the power and salvation of our God would be made known. That there would be peace and reconciliation. That there would be healing from addiction, and hope for the hopeless. Pray and worship with us!
We we will have a number of pastors from across the community leading us in prayer, and worship leaders from various churches all on one worship team to lead us in powerful worship.

We are in a season of praying through where God would have us hold Declare events in 2018, but in the meantime we are excited to come alongside and support this Concert of Prayer organized by Soul Winners for Jesus Christ! One of our core values is to FOSTER existing ministries that are already rallying God's Church to declare His glory, and this Concert of Prayer will do just that. Declare will bring one of the worship teams leading that evening, and much of the night will be corporate prayer for the lost led by various pastors across Greater Dayton. You can learn more on Soul Winners' website.
Would you pray with us as we talk with pastors about where to declare God's glory in 2018? We're currently having conversations with church leaders in Greater Dayton, beyond, and even out of state. If God is leading you and your church to head up this movement in your community, please contact us!
As Jerusalem lay in ruins, Nehemiah knew it was not time to sit idly by--it was time for the people of God to rise up and rebuild the city! Today, we are partnering with Dayton Women in the Word and churches across Dayton to call God's people to rebuild and declare the redemption of God as we hold a public reading of Nehemiah on Courthouse Square on September 17 at 6pm!
It has been very exciting to see how God has been leading and bringing all the details together for this event. God was drawing our hearts to an event in the downtown area and then Courthouse Square specifically. At the same time, Dayton Women in the Word has been studying through the book of Nehemiah, and God had been prompting them to hold a public reading of Nehemiah--on Courthouse Square! We are very excited to partner with them as we both follow God's leading to read His Word and worship Him through song in this powerful night of Scripture reading and corporate worship! Hear more about the heart behind this event in the video below.

God has given us a passion to hold a cumulative Declare worship night for the entire Miami Valley region in the heart of Dayton... and He has opened up UD Arena as a venue! We're shooting for 6,000 believers rallying to declare God's glory. This is an event that is bigger than any one local church and will require God's Church throughout Dayton and the Miami Valley partnering together to make it possible. We believe that God bringing revival in the hearts of His people to worship Him will lead to revival throughout the region. We will Worship the Lord with all of our hearts, Reach the hurting in Dayton through a shoe drive with Shoes for the Shoeless for Target Dayton and save lives by taking an offering to raise $15,000 for Miami Valley Women's Center, and Revive God's Church throughout Dayton to declare God's glory and reach the lost for Christ. See our blog post for more of the backstory, watch the video below to hear the heart behind the event and visit the Facebook event page for new updates!
This event will require the support of individuals and churches partnering to Pray, Worship, Participate and Support.
We cannot make this event a success on our own. This is overwhelming and unattainable in our own strength, but easily achievable by the God of unlimited power, glory, and resources. Please pray that He will draw the hearts of His people to Him.
Every person who attends Declare Dayton is a crucial part of this ministry. God instructed the nation of Israel is Psalm 96 to declare His glory among the nations. Let's rally to do that here in Dayton, being a vibrant witness to the world around us!
For any singers and worshipers who would like to participate in this event, we will be having a large worship choir with one of the three teams! Parts will be learned by ear with rehearsals at Target Dayton on 9/15, 9/22, 9/26 and 9/29. Click the link to be redirected to the Declare Dayton Choir signup.
We also need volunteers to serve as greeters and ushers at the event (training 5:30pm at the arena 9/30, dinner provided). Enter your email address below to commit to help!
This night of worship and witness requires considerable funds to make it possible. Please visit our donate page to partner with us in bringing revival to Dayton!
Join us as we rally God's Church to declare His glory in Troy! The theme of this year's worship night is "Here for You", as we eagerly await Christ's return and also worship and serve Him each day. Let's lift our voices and hearts together in worship to the King!
