One of the key things one can see pretty early on at World Revival Church is how much favoritism is placed on those related to Steve Gray. These practices have been pretty standard from the beginning.
It’s interesting to take a look at the place as a business, and in this post we will solely take a look at just World Revival Church, and not Steve Gray Ministries or The Revival Network.
World Revival Church as a business began in the 70s as a traveling Christian music band called Jubilation Ministries. As time went on and the band stopped traveling, Steve took over Smithton Community Church. The non-profit business took over SCC, and when the move to Kansas City happened, Jubilation Ministries also became World Revival Church.
Some points to consider before the listing. All business decisions have to go through a board and have majority agreement, other people don’t have any power in decisions.
All information listed regarding the board and the amendments that established Jubilation Ministries are listed in the documents section of this page.
