Restoration Ministries International - history

On March 10th 1985, a service was conducted with a congregation of three, in a small house in Deighton Road, St Michael, Barbados. This marked the beginning of the realization of a vision that had been received eight years earlier. The visionary was a youthful David Durant, who, while participating in a pioneering venture in Guyana. So strong was the impartation that it was written down immediately and communicated to his wife, Joy and the congregation.

“We exist to glorify God among the nations, Pioneer evangelism, Church planting and making strong disciples for Jesus, who in the power of the Holy Spirit will propagate a holistic gospel and will affect their communities.”

By 1988 the gathering had outgrown the house and a building was leased in Laynes Road, Brittons Hill. St Michael. By this time the church had become well know as Revival Assembly and the membership continued to grow.
In 1994 arrangements were made for Sunday services to be held in the auditorium of the Garrison Secondary School, again, because of the need for space.
One year later, there was a total transfer to the Horatio Cook Auditorium, at the headquarters of the National Union of Public Workers.
In 1996 the name of the church was changed from Revival Assemble to Restoration Ministries, with greater emphasis being placed on the restoration of all things, according to Acts 3: 21
In the process of change, and moving from place to place in search of accommodation, one very noticeable feature was the absolute commitment of church members to the vision as they carried out tasks such as transporting and setting up of equipment and chairs for every service.
The search for accommodation continued and ended finally, at Bonnett’s Avenue. Brittons Hill, St Michael. For seven months the Pastor, his wife Joy and three sons, David Jr. Jonathan and Christopher, along with the congregation, assembled the ten on this site, while the Leadership of the church forged ahead with the process of acquiring the property.
Finally, on October 10th, 1997 the congregation transformed the interior of the building that had stood on the site for many years and moved in to conduct service with great celebration and thanks to Almighty God.
