R. Stacy Ratliff
Congregation Pastor – Revive Bitterroot
Stacy and Anne lead the team at Revive Church in the Bitterroot. They desire to see families flourish with strong marriages, and a love for Christ. They love the Bitterroot and the people that call this slice of heaven home. The Ratliff family joined Revive Church in 2009 after moving to the Missoula area shortly before. Their three daughters Courtney, Calley and Caitlynn serve along side their parents in many areas.
Heather and her husband Ben share a heart to raise up other leaders, see people step into who they’re meant to be, and be a part of a community where the presence of God is evidenced by the healing and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, our love for one another, and the peace that comes from knowing He is God. Heather received training at the CFCC School of Ministry, and graduated with a worship emphasis. Since then she has overseen youth worship at CFCC for a number of years, served as a leader in the youth ministry, and also served for six months in a NewFrontiers church in London helping build worship teams and investing in the local church ministries there. Heather lives to see that moment when the light bulb goes off for someone and they really get that they are loved and worth something.
Bruce helped start Revive Church over 40 years ago when it was called Clark Fork City Church. He served faithfully for many years under the guidance of Steve Valentine. After a sabbatical, Bruce has returned to our staff as our pastoral care liaison. Bruce and Shirlene have five children and a growing number of grand children. They love to garden and lead others by the loving example they set in all they do.
Cameron and Lerene (and baby Leah) are here from South Africa to serve the Clark Fork Youth and lead the team. They really felt God confirm the move after being invited by the leadership of CFCC to move over from Central South Africa to Missoula Montana. They are very excited for the new season ahead of CFY and are trusting that God will do something really special among the church’s young people. They intend to raise a team who are passionate and dedicated for work not only into the young people already part of the church but those in schools and communities in and surrounding Missoula.
Brian and Renee have been apart of Revive Church for many years. Renee has a passion to see kids understand the love of the Father and grow in a deeper relationship with God. They see kids as the church not just the next generation. Renee’s creativity and love for children come out in everything she does and with the support of her husband Brian they bring a vibrancy to Clark Fork Kidz.
