History of RTM Ocala
In February 2015, God spoke to Pastor Steven Smith about the assignment to establish His church. Pastor Smith called and spoke with his Spiritual Father, Pastor Greg Powe (Revealing Truth Ministries in Tampa) concerning what God was saying. The Lord was instructing him to go North of Tampa. As instructions were received, he began to look north and was settled on Brooksville, Fl. However, the Lord continued to speak north and he started hearing Ocala, Florida. While he had visited Ocala years prior, he was sure God wasn’t calling him to Ocala; he was settled on Brooksville.
Pastor Smith called to inform his Pastor about both locations and it was confirmed that Ocala, Florida was the place. Once the word was received, we began to travel, meet people and become involved in the community of Ocala, all while receiving peace and favor from the Lord!
Six months after the initial call to Pastor Powe about Ocala, it was time to meet and discuss the details. To our pleasure, we not only received the Father’s Blessing, but the honor of carrying the Revealing Truth Ministries name to do the work. A few months later, we hosted our community event, StepWay to Heaven in the great City of Ocala!
In the months that followed God instructed us to Pray, Plan, and Prepare to put in motion the establishment of the ministry. It was during this time that God would speak about May 1, 2016 being the 1st Service. In addition, we were being blessed to meet people in Ocala and share the vision and dream of the church. These people would agree to be a part of the DreamTeam, which would serve in carrying out the vision to Pray, Plan and Prepare for the 1st service. The first DreamTeam meeting was held on Saturday, November 14, 2015 at the Marriott Fairfield Hotel in Ocala, FL.
