Revolutionary Life is a ministry determined to see the Great Commission completed and purity of the American church (in mission and love) restored. Our goal is to inspire, recruit, train, and release as many laborers as we can into the Unreached and Suffering world, each with an apostolic heart to reproduce more laborers while they themselves win the allotment of souls the Lord has assigned them.
Revolutionary Life was founded by Dustan & Darlene Stanley in 2008. After an EXTENSIVE mission journey around the world, Dustan & Darlene concluded the Lord was leading them to raise up more laborers while still declaring the Gospel to the unreached and suffering. Revolutionary Life exists to take the Love, Hope, & Faith of Jesus Christ to the suffering and unreached world. Our motto is: His Gospel, His way, whereever He sends, whatever the cost!
About Dustan & Darlene Stanley
Dustan grew up in South Mississippi. He got saved at a Youth Camp at 16, helped start a Bible Club in his school, went on his first trip to Peru, and received the direction from the Lord concerning Revolutionary Life while still in high school..
After a rough time in his walk with the Lord at the age of 23, Dustan set out on his first immersion mission experience as he went to Indonesia on an internship after the 2004 Tsunami. He slept in Tents along the shores of the same ocean that had killed 234,000 people in Indonesia alone. It was here that he first shared the Love and Gospel of Jesus with the un-reached. From that point on, he was hooked.
After five months in Indonesia Dustan returned to the United States to minister to youth while in preparation for his next mission trip.
Darlene grew up in California. She felt the call to the mission field at a very young age. Often as a little girl she would pack her bags hoping Jesus would come in the middle of the night and whisk her off to Africa. Her first mission trip was to Mexico, then later to Peru. During each trip she saw many new souls enter the Kingdom of God, and with each new soul the calling grew stronger in Darlene’s heart.
At the age of 23 Darlene went on a short mission trip to Thailand. It was during this trip that God cemented the call in her heart. He told her two things: 1) That she should follow the call no matter what, and 2) that her next trip would be with her husband.
Dustan & Darlene met in 2006. After months of discovering they shared the same vision and heart for the un-reached and suffering, the two were married in April 2007. A year and a half later, with a full honorable release from their Church, Dustan & Darlene set out on a fourteen nation around the world Missions journey. They networked, ministered, and immersed themselves in the different un-reached cultures throughout the 10/40 window. By hiking into jungles, preaching in Mega Cities, sneaking into Underground Church Meetings, and holding large Gospel meetings they brought the Gospel to many Hindus, Buddhists, and Muslims from Indonesia to West Africa. They also filmed the entire trip for a TV series called: THE REVOLUTIONARY LIFE.
After a long journey with nothing more than two backpacks Dustan & Darlene returned to the USA. The result of their trip was two new fellowships being planted, hundreds of new souls in the Kingdom of God, nearly a dozen new disciples, and a clear understanding of the future of Dustan & Darlene’s ministry, REVOLUTIONARY LIFE. The mission was clearer than ever; more laborers were needed to take the Love, Hope, & Faith of Jesus Christ to the suffering and un-reached world.
In late 2010 & early 2011 D&D established their first mission base in North Thailand. The expansion will continue to India, West Africa, Indonesia, and the USA. The goal is to begin the training of apostolic laborers that deliver Christ’s Gospel, His way, where ever he sends, what ever the cost. The U.S.A training base, called Decapolis, will the International Headquarters of RLI, and will be the central hub of training and outreach to the United States.
In late 2011 The Revolutionary Life, a missions based reality television show, was completed and began broadcast through JCTV, a world-wide network focused on reaching to 12-29 year olds.
