Our Legacy

New Spirit Revival Center is a Bible-based, Non Denominational church with a Pentecostal/Charismatic persuasion founded by Drs. Darrell & Belinda Scott in February of 1994. It was four years earlier, in 1990, when our Pastors received the vision for New Spirit Revival Center Ministries. After much prayer and deliberation, with an eye on the divine timetable of God, New Spirit Revival Center was officially chartered on the 14th day of February 1994, with 4 members and now has expanded and grown to a ministry supporting over 3000 members to date. Having humble beginnings as tenants of the historic Civic Center in the suburb of Cleveland Heights, OH, New Spirit Revival Center has grown into a multifaceted ministry reaching souls both locally and abroad.

Rapid Expansion & Growth of A Great Ministry
Facing opposition during their days as tenants of the Civic Center in Cleveland Heights, the Scott's persevered in faith and went on to purchase the 120,000 square foot Civic Center in 2002. But the story doesn't find its completion there. The Scott's set out on a mission of biblical proportions, receiving a mandate from God to "restore {this house} to its former glory" and have since their acquisition done just that. The Civic, a former jewish synagogue which housed the B'nai Jeshrun Congregation, is now the premier conference and events center in its region and serves as a multi purpose facility that also houses Covenant Childcare Learning and Enrichment Center (CCCUR), a daycare facility that has received high marks for quality and excellence from the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County.

Visionary leadership has always been commonplace at New Spirit Revival Center, and under the leadership of Drs. Darrell & Belinda Scott, they have since acquired 10 acres of prime real estate on Cleveland's East Side for future development. In 2005, the Scott's were privileged to purchase WCCD Radio 1000, an AM Radio Station, from Salem Communications, being the first church/ministry in the region to own and operate its own gospel based media platform/radio station. Today, Radio 1000 boasts over 1.3 million listeners per month all over the globe, and impacts the lives of many on a daily basis with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Scott's continue to set precedence not only in this region but also in the Kingdom of God at large. Over the years, the Scott's have expanded their reach, taking their burden for soul winning to both national and international platforms. Drs. Darrell & Belinda Scott have been on five major television networks during New Spirit Revival Center's fifteen years in ministry. They have impacted the homes of thousands upon thousands with weekly broadcasts on CBS TV's local affiliate in Cleveland, OH (covering Ohio and parts of Kentucky, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Canada), The Impact Network, the Now Network, Ion TV (Formerly) PAX-TV, CTN-Christian Television Network (covering all of Detroit, Michigan and the surrounding suburbs, extending into Windsor, Ontario), and finally worldwide satellite coverage on Sky Angel TV. With such a broadcast resume, New Spirit Revival Center ministries is poised to traverse into the world of operating its own television network in the near future. (return to top)

Training & Equipping Leaders for Service
Drs. Darrell and Belinda Scott have taken their desire for inreach and for "training and equipping ministers and Christian workers for service in the Kingdom" to new heights and deeper depths chartering programs for Christian ministerial development. In 1998, Dr. Belinda Scott founded the Women's Educational and Mentoring Alliance, or WEMA, as a means to mentor and educate women who have a burden an d a desire to minister the Gospel. WEMA's first class saw over two hundred (200) applicants and in June of 2000 saw its first ninety women earning certificates of completion. Scheduled to commence in 2010, Drs. Darrell & Belinda Scott are also organizing a Ministerial Training Institute; open to participants city wide who feel the call and the burden to minister effectively in the Kingdom of God.

On The Horizon: New Spirit Revival Center On The Move!
What's next for NSRC? The sky is truly the limit! Since late 2008, Drs. Darrell and Belinda Scott and New Spirit Revival Center have launched Urgency Records, a major record label under the leadership of Dr. Darrell Scott, acquired distribution with one of the largest distributors of gospel music and merchandise -- Central South Distribution, released a debut album entitled "No Other Name" with none other than its very own praise and worship team, aptly named NSRC accompanied by Marvin Winans Jr, Kim Stratton, BB Jay, and many other chart topping artists, and have commenced in renovation of homes that they've acquired from the city of Cleveland Heights, OH to grant opportunities to families in its membership. Drs. Darrell & Belinda Scott's heart for the people and their honest servant leadership are genuine and are noteworthy. NSRC has branched out to fulfill the mandate placed upon them by God for sixteen churches, acquiring property at 1061 Clearview Avenue in Akron, Ohio to start New Spirit Revival Center Akron in 2008. Since then, New Spirit Revival Center Akron continues to thrive, beginning with commuting members of its Wednesday night services, and has now expanded into Sunday morning worship. (return to top)
