A Brief History
Fr. Soji Olikkal, the director of Sehion Ministries (Anointing Fire Catholic Ministries) in the UK, working in the Archdiocese of Birmingham, and a leading Charismatic preacher was inspired by the Holy Spirit to produce a Catholic evangelistic magazine for young people.
With the help of a small group of volunteers the first issue of Kingdom Revelator Magazine was printed and distributed at the Second Saturday Convention in Birmingham in May 2014. It was launched by Archbishop Emeritus Kevin McDonald.
Now the copies are being sent to schools and parishes across the world. It is distributed in 32 different countries including Ireland, USA, Australia and India. Currently in Australia 4000 copies are printed monthly. They are distributed free of cost to 40 educational institutions which include Catholic and Govt schools, colleges & Universities, juvenile homes and to many parishes across all states and territories.
Vision & Aims
Kingdom Revelator magazine is evangelistic and aims to show young people that the Christian faith is relevant to them in their everyday lives. It shows them that they must choose daily to follow Jesus and let Him be their personal Saviour and it encourages them to read the Bible, pray and receive the Sacraments regularly. The personal testimonies show them that God can and does intervene in the lives of Christians today and that He can be their guide and protector.
Young people are encouraged to submit their testimonies, articles, poems and drawings for publication. The aim is that it will be a magazine written mainly by faith-filled young people who are familiar with the problems and challenges that face young people today. An editorial board oversees the publication, edits the articles and ensures a balanced content each month of teaching, testimony and faith building material. They also oversee the design process, which is outsourced to a professional design company in India to ensure a bright and modern feel to the magazine that will appeal to young readers.
