Dan and Barbara Hicks
Dan and Barbara were introduced to reviveOHIO in Greenville in August of 2016. A one week planned Revival and outreach turned into a three-week divine appointment between God and our county! They participated as much as they could, and their lives were forever changed! They were also amazed at how simple it was to share the Gospel, and realized that for too long they had lived complacent Christian lives.
“We attended church regularly and did all the right things,” Barbara said, “but something was missing. That something was a life fully surrendered to actively taking part in walking out the Great Commission! We loved how real, practical, and easy it is – if we would just commit to seeing it accomplished! The way we learned that Discipleship is an imperative component was hugely instrumental, as all new believers absolutely have to have someone who is willing to take this new journey with them, and be there to help them learn how to walk out this new life in Christ!” The Discipleship follow-up is what drew Barbara; and six years later as Dan’s lifelong career winds down, he is also able to be involved in this amazing calling and ministry!
They live in Bradford Ohio, and have two adult children, 9 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Before joining reviveOHIO, they were involved with ministry for 6 years as League Directors for UPWARD Basketball and Cheerleading program, which started with about 100 children and grew to approximately 400 participating! They are also small business owners and farm in Darke County. They are very involved with their local church where they feel their gifts and strengths are: prayer, organization and administration. Barbara and Dan absolutely love spending time with family, camping and traveling.
