Spiritual Leader, Church Builder, Traveling Evangelist. Founder of Evangelical Faith Vision Ministries, Inc. which is headquartered at The First Albany Deliverance Cathedral in Albany, Georgia. In 1958 after pastoring a church in Milledgeville, Georgia, he and his wife Dr. Ullainee Sanders Revills, moved the family to Albany, Georgia where meetings were held in homes. Street meetings in Harlem and on corners were common as Revills established a following and started a mission on Jefferson Street in South Albany. Another site in East Albany served as a new start as he and members built a church. Afterwards he traveled through out the south with a crusade team and tent ministry establishing churches in large cities and small towns in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and South Carolina. Other services were held in Illinois and California as well as other areas of the U.S.A. He declared that "God Gave Me A Vision" and went about fulfilling that commission. One of the first known "Apostles" in the early 1960's. Yearly summer campmeetings were held on Newton Road in Albany, Georgia where thousands gathered under the big gospel tent for a two week revival. Afterwards, an outdoors baptismal was held at Mercer Mills Creek on Cordele Road in East Dougherty County. A large christian parade was also a favorite of the Albany and Southwest Georgia area produced by the ministry. Later both radio and television programs were aired on many stations and cable networks. In 1973 Apostle Revills, Shepherd Mother Ullainee Revills along with the Crusade Team took the gospel message to Kenya, East Africa and in 1975 to Haiti, West Indies. According to The Albany Hearld, in 1981 "The First Albany Deliverance Cathedral on South Slappey Boulevard dedicated its new $7 million building complex. The service lasted close to seven hours in the ornate chamber with seating for up to 5,000 people." In 1991 Revills was recognized as one of the ten most prominent pastors in Georgia. He helped established programs and organizations designed to help individuals improve themselves spiritually, financially and socially as well. Starting from small beginnings, Revills along with his wife Dr. Ullainee Sanders Revills were the leaders of thousands of members and the source of many other church ministries that got their start under their leadership. After over 50 years on the front-line and over a million lives touched, Chief Apostle, Dr.Isaiah Revills named his successor Apostle Felix Revills who took over the ministry and continues the vision and the work of the kingdom. Chief Apostle Isaiah Revills passed away July of 2006 and thousands gathered at The Cathedral for a final farewell attended by many local, state, and national leaders. A portion of Georgia Highway 133 and Moultrie Road in Albany, Georgia is named "Isaiah Revills Parkway" in his honor.
