Several years ago, the leadership of Revealing Truth Ministries (RTM) encouraged a “We Not Me” way of thinking, where we constantly were reminded “When Me Becomes We, Amazing Things Happen!” Our focus was on how much more we could accomplish for God when we transitioned from thinking about one person to the powerful things that occur when a group of people come together with a singular purpose.
On March 26, 2017, Pastor Creflo Dollar re-introduced that mindset when he declared that we had become “RTM Nation.” Yes, we had just lost our founding pastor, a strong visionary, effective leader and anointed pastor. The sudden loss left a void partly because it was so unexpected. Still, we needed to transition. We needed instructions on how to deal with the emotional wilderness as we prepared for the new, and we received them. It was time for the formation of RTM Nation.
Has our vision changed? Absolutely not! We are still called to reveal the abundance of peace, prosperity, security, stability, health, healing and truth – the seven pillars upon which the vision was founded. With the formation of RTM Nation, we are urged to accept the personal call to fulfill the seven pillars of the vision every day. We are compelled to activate our gifts, talents, treasure and time in service of the vision. We are reminded that every member has a responsibility to hear from God about how to expand the vision. We are expected to be necessary, functioning parts who are committed to spiritually maturing, discipleship and outreach.
The new is here. RTM Nation has formed. As you hear from God, you will do your unique part in supporting the vision rather than looking to one person, one department or someone else to do it. Thank you for entering into the new with us!
“He gave us his word, but he left his spirit and poured out the anointing for the vision ahead. He’s still here…he isn’t gone. His spirit is right here with us and stronger than ever. His words transitioned from external, to internal…Pastor Powe made an exchange (for all of us), his physical body – in exchange for a super-natural gift that will be placed in us, greater than we could ever imagine…”
~ Pastor Bryan M. Powe, Senior Pastor Revealing Truth Ministries
“The greatness of this vision…is bigger than one person. That’s why this one man took what God gave him and imparted into all of you. What was once just his, belongs to the Revealing Truth Nation! So, what was just a vision became the manifestation of Revealing Truth Ministries here in Tampa. What was a church, became an outreach ministry for the world. But now, you are about to see the formation of a Nation…”
The RTM NATION symbolizes a movement; a bold and unmistakable recognition of strength, boldness and vibrancy within the greater Tampa Bay, FL community. Our late Founding Pastor, Greg Powe wore this ‘neon’ color intentionally. He coined it, his “color of life”. As the RTM nation was voiced and ultimately birthed, it was suiting to honor Pastor Powe and implement a new movement; a new passion; a bolder statement. After all, Pastor Powe was as bold as they come. Now, RTM Nation is a beacon of light and will forever be regarded as the “Color of Life”…The Color of Truth!
The “N” is comprised of the obvious and the not so obvious! It encompasses two “7’s” connected. One “7” symbolizing the “seven pillars” of Revealing Truth Ministries and the prophetic 7 years wherein the fulfillment of the vision of Revealing Truth Ministries shall begin with the construction of the first Truth Dome in Tampa, Florida.
The Arrows are “above and below” symbolizing the nature of God in heaven and in the earth. When our Founding Pastor, Greg Powe passed away, there was a special activation of gifts, passions, and talents which our members felt being released within themselves to do their part in helping bring the vision of RTM to fruition.
