Mission Statement


Revive Ministries Inc. is a Christian ministry non-profit which supports the Revive Life House long-term treatment program for men with addiction issues in Nicholasville and Lexington, KY.

Our goal is to build relationships based on a Christian foundation to identify the needs of the community and find meaningful solutions to serve those needs. Revive Life House is focused on providing the highest standard for care for men with addiction issues.

         Revive is a state licensed and nationally accredited substance abuse recovery program that          through Jesus Christ reclaims, strengthens and establishes men for life.


Background Statement


In 2007, Todd and Casey Johns began the vision for Revive Ministries Inc. They saw firsthand the destruction of addiction, and through their faith in God, they felt called to the purpose of rebuilding families and communities.

It wasn’t until December of 2013, after a season of intense prayer and submission to God, Todd and Casey opened the doors to Revive Ministries Inc. Over the next several months, the Lord would continue to reveal His plan that lead to the formalization of Revive Life House, a Christ centered substance abuse treatment program for men.


Impact Statement

Revive Life House began with one facility supported by volunteers who donated their professional and personal skills to help men overcome addiction. Since then, we have expanded into Lexington, and now have multiple sites with a 30-day program with an option to enter long-term treatment. We also serve those referred through Casey’s Law or other court ordered treatment.

To date, we have served over 350 men to achieve sobriety and come to know Jesus! We now have 63 employees and continue to grow to meet the need for treatment in our communities! Our goal is to Reclaim the One! We will continue working for God's glory until treatment services are available to all who are in need!

We have earned the respect of the recovery community by maintaining a dual license as an Alcohol and Other Drug entity (AODE) and Behavioral Health Service Organization (BHSO); and having earned national accreditation through CARF. Our goals for 2020 include continued growth and improvement of our recovery treatment services, and to lead more families into a relationship with Christ!

Needs Statement

1. Many of the services provided to our clients are not covered under insurance such as clothing, food, work wear, glasses, job placement services, and transportation. We need financial support to provide these and many other services.

2. We need volunteers for mentorship, transportation, special events, or leading a class

4. We are in desperate need of a new 15 passenger van.

5. We need YOU to partner with us through your church or business!

CEO/Executive Director Statement


At Revive Life House, we believe we can impact the world through loving people and caring for our communities! That is why we are based on a foundation of love. What sets us apart from other treatment centers is the simple fact that we are committed to helping people grow over a lifetime. We are intentional in our approach, to teach new habits while breaking the old; leading by example and nurturing growth as a friend, not just a service; and spreading the word of Christ, that all may know Him!


Board Chair Statement


Revive Life House is regenerating the lives of men who were once addicted to alcohol and drugs.  Our faith based treatment offers freedom from addiction, employment opportunities and a recovery support system to help men live the rest of their lives with purpose and intentionality.

Impact Questions
GoalsHelpWhat is the organization aiming to accomplish? This is the organization's ultimate goal for intended impact.

In Revive our life mission is to come along side and serve our community with “no strings” attached by empowering others, through our four key pillars, in common unity making a difference in one life, one family and one neighborhood at a time. That means our approach to ministry is fueled by passionate volunteers who are looking to connect with the real needs of our city and beyond. We are an intermediate ministry looking to facilitate and connect with existing organizations who long to making a lasting impact in the lives of individuals. Our organizational goals over the next 3-5 years consist of the furthering development of our key pillars identifying directors for each pillar expanding the specific mission of each. Our truly believe that our four key pillars will address the major needs in our community which we believe is true in most part to our society as a whole. Revive Life House will address head on the problem of addiction doing our part to help restore men back to God, family and ultimately impacting future generations to come. This holistic program will address addiction from a spiritual perspective and yet will also address the clinical and social side as well. We will offer clinical counseling, individual and group as well as job skills training through Jobs for Life. Our Kingdom Market pillar is really about teaching Christian business owners how to live out their faith in the market place and how to allow their business to be part of God’s redemptive plan for society. We envision the men coming out of the Revive Life House program to have potential employment opportunities with our Kingdom Market partners. Our NextGen pillar will invest in the youth of our community, giving way to leadership development, after-school programs, mentoring youth, etc. We truly believe in Revive that we do not have to “reinvent” the wheel and really do not care to try. We want to come along side existing programs to help one another have the greatest impact in the lives of our NextGen leaders. We will look to potentially tie NextGen youth into internships with Kingdom Market partners and help to facilitate the absolute best relationship building programs we can in our region. Lastly, the pillar of Common Ground is our benevolence type services to the community. We know there are and always will be needs in our neighborhoods and we will do our part to address those needs of shelters, food, clothing, etc., however we will do so under the framework of building relationships. We like to say “relief with intent”. As we expand Common Grounds into our communities the tie back into the other 3 pillars will be a natural flow, from Recovery, to employment needs to helping in the development of our “at risk youth”. We know that community development work will take place over the next 5, 10, 15 plus years because when working with people and communities there are two critical factors that must be present, trust and sustainability and that just takes time.  

StrategiesHelpWhat are the organization's strategies for its stated long-term goals?

I believe the majority of this question was answered within the previous section on goals. The four pillars is really strategy / ministry model by which we believe we will have the greatest impact for our community needs. However, I will speak to the "near-term" activities that will serve as a building block for future success. Allow me to give two examples that area already taking place. One falls under the Kingdom Market pillar. We have had the privilege to start a missional community coffee shop in downtown Nicholasville called J's Place. Early on as the Executive Director of Revive I formed a friendship with the owner prior to opening the doors of the coffee shop and was hired as General Manager to get the shop up and running. J's place over the last 18 months now has been vital to our community as well as a wonderful launching pad and hub for our non-profit. Please visit the website at  Secondly is the Revive Life House. We currently have the facility, program and plans in place to launch this pillar and will do so over the next month. We have been gearing up for this launch over the last 6 months and really believe that as we do this will drive community awareness and volunteers to engage in our vision and mission. Lastly I would also add that we are actively engaged in a potential homeless shelter for Jessamine County in Nicholasville. This is a current coalition formed and we are taking steps towards helping with this. The shelter would fall under our Common Grounds pillar and bring awareness and strengthen the overall vision to help love and develop people back into active working members of society.

CapabilitiesHelpWhat are the organization’s capabilities for doing this? What resources, capacities, and connections support its progress towards long-term goals?

We have various ways we are connecting to help “fund the plan” if you will. For instance, we have online giving, monthly supporters, fundraising events, Kingdom Market partnership, local foundations, Church support, and all board members are financially contributing to the ministry as well. Our community has rallied in various ways through the support of J’s place, to helping us work on getting the Revive Life House ready for the men. We have had continued support from various church groups as well as city officials who have showed their support. Some of our internal resourcing has come in the form of networking with our board members which as led to our participating in local fundraisers, as well as making sure we as a board have the correct coverage from insurance perspectives. We have also started to form what we call our “Lead Team” which consists of volunteers at this point who assist with the day to day operations of the ministry. This team consists of an admin assistant, communications person, prayer coordinator and an unofficial seminary intern who helps with newsletter and other odd and end stuff! We also have had continued support through various partnerships in our community via churches, local chamber and local businesses. All have rallied to help us get the house ready and supported us in fundraising and other local events we have been apart of to drive donations and awareness.

IndicatorsHelpHow will the organization know if it is making progress? What are the key qualitative and quantitative indicators against which the organization assesses its progress toward its intended impact?

2.Board Investment - Building diversity within the board along with leadership training and financial investments 3. Celebrate Recovery Launch/Sustainable - The goal is to have this aspect of the ministry up and running, train leaders and leadership and identify a CR Coordinator.

4. Identify Revive Life House rental property - Housing for 4 to 6 men, close to town for easy access to work, court and other needs. 5. Identify Revive Life House Manager.

6. Next Gen - Sustaining Wednesday community youth night at J’s place and developing “next step” phase for those youth who want more. 7. Next Gen Director - by year two have identified ministry director.

1. Identify and have 4 staff in place to help bring oversight to ministry; Kingdom Market Director (Development/Finances); Next Gen Director (Marketing/Communications); Revive Life House Director (Recovery/Counseling); Admin Assistant to ED (Secretarial Background)

2. Create one or two DBA’s under Revive focused on helping to facilitate guys through the RLH program creating job skills training and employment opportunities. (examples, resale/resource center, Landscaping Company, etc)

3. Connect Jobs for Life into Kingdom Market as well as Phase II of Revive Life House with first round of program graduates.

4. Common Grounds to have streamlined community food pantries and resources working together in community wide efforts.


ProgressHelpWhat has and hasn’t been accomplished so far?

Two of our four key pillars are already a reality in very short time frame, about 18 months! As explained above, J's place a Kingdom Market partner has been extremely valuable to the long-term goals and success of Revive. The credibility and networking that has taken place because of J's place has been nothing short of amazing. We (J's place) is seen as a hub in the community, a place where people are now accustomed to gather for meetings and business lunches downtown. This has allowed for the vision of Revive to be shared and lived out through the coffee shop. Along with J's place is of course what has been mentioned already, Revive Life House. The house has been a great community gatherer if you will of support and volunteers coming to help make this a reality. We have had many people from the community, city leaders and others share how addiction has impacted their own families and that we need something like this to combat addiction. As for what has worked and what has not worked so much within our progress thus far really has been truly all positive, however, yes we have learned some things along the way in terms of promotional nights and marketing that works and doesn’t work for J’s place. We have learned how the community really longs to see a change as a whole in our communities as people are excited to help and jump in and get their “hands dirty”. We have also learned the importance of ongoing communication and regular quarterly updates we like to hold at J’s place for those who are wanting to know more and/or be involved more.

This is a 7-month program with three phases. Phase I is approximately 30 days which provides intensive clinical and recovery-based treatment. Services are based on a therapeutic model, which meet the best-practice standards with continuous improvement as our focus, as well as learning that God cares for them and that he is longing to have a relationship with them. Phase II is approximately 90 days and provides continued clinical care, as well as life skills training, peer support, and adult education programs to prepare clients for employment and a more stable sober lifestyle.
Residents continue to learn what it truly means to BELONG to God and one another. Studies rooted in understanding of who God really is and what that means for them. Phase III provides continued support for 90 days through sober living housing, job placement services and continued support with qualified peer support specialists.
Budget 165000
Program Short Term Success We have graduated 36 men from the program since 2018.
Examples of Program Success Clients having maintained sobriety for the duration of their program to graduation.
We believe in a holistic approach to ministry and truly believe that God cares just as much about the market place and socio-economics as he does those in the jungles of the Amazon. We realize that there is no simple solution to any complex problem.
Kingdom Market ministry is centered on allowing Jesus to be at the helm and forefront of the business place, honoring others through His love and creating spaces that allow for job creation and facilitation of CCD initiatives. For more information on Christian Community Development initiatives see

Kingdom Market ministries also understands and value the importance of job creation, as well as having a place for volunteers to give back into our communities. Kingdom Market places the highest regard for relationships, knowing that all ministry flows from a place of relationship with God and others.

Description Revive Next Gen serves, supports and strengthens single parents, and also at risk youth. In recent decades parents have isolated themselves in hopes of raising their children for success, instead of taking the village approach in helping raise their children for greatness as well as success. As a result many parents become exhausted, frustrated and at times down right depressed that their children are not growing and excelling as they had once hoped. When this happens the children become stifled by obstacles instead of embracing opportunities. The essence of failure remains and becomes their sense of normalcy and acceptance. Many youth, not by their own choice or decision- making, start life disadvantaged. Do you know any? We strive to be the village that helps encourage youth for greatness. Our desire is to help shape them to put others and the greater good of our community first. We exists to spark passion, inspire purpose and infuse positive values into the life of our youth.
Budget 0
We fully believe that the ground is level at the foot of the cross and that every person matters in the eyes of God. When we are living out our faith in and among our neighborhoods and intentionally loving our neighbors as ourselves common grounds naturally occurs. What we are talking about is a just distribution of resources. In Common Grounds you will find us looking to collaborate with other county programs that are like-minded in heart. This ministry will include but not be limited to the following. Food Pantry, Co-Op gardening, Counseling Services, etc.

CEO Comments The majority of our 2016 budget involves the operating costs of the Revive Life House. 2015 was a year of new beginnings for us as well as a newly formed board and Todd's transition from full-time GM at J's place to the organization. With that being said we had nearly $53,000 come into Revive in 2015. We will be challenged with a $185k budget for 2016; however, I believe we are up for the task at hand. One of the ways in which will help generate income for the ministry will be through the billing of insurances through the Revive Life House. We are working towards our BHSO (Behavioral Health Service Org) which will allow us to bill through Medicaid as well as other private insurances. We will still face the challenge of raising the subsequent funds required to operate the ministry. We have several avenues by which we will go after this funding. We will also be looking to broaden and diversify our board as well into 2016 to help reach out into networks we are not currently hitting.
Foundation Staff Comments Revive received its 501c3 status in 2015 and so does not yet have 3 years worth of financial information.
