United Revival Mennonite ChurchLogo
United Revival Mennonite Church / Iglesia Unida de Avivamiento is a bilingual church in Bushwick, New York. The congregation is actually made up of two smaller groups, English Speaking and Spanish speaking, and is affiliated with the Mennonite church. Mennonites believe in the truth of the scriptures and the work of the Holy Spirit and highly value peace, community and simple living.
While the broader Mennonite Church has its own identity, United Revival is a fast growing congregation with its own unique challenges and was seeking to create a new identity that better represented who it is and strives to be. As a passionate group with a strong emphasis on Spirit led worship and living, United Revival wanted to have a symbol it could take into its neighborhood to more effectively minister.
The main directions that came forth in terms of symbols were fire to represent revival/passion, a dove to represent peace, a cross to represent Christ, and a globe to represent belonging and mission. After sketching out some possibilities we began looking at ways to combine elements while maintaining a cohesive symbol. The final result blended flames with a dove and encircling the two help to emphasize unity as well.
I loved working with R3 Design! His efficient and task oriented approach to design is an amazing process; I learned a lot of what I really wanted to do and what direction to take. I highly recommend R3 Design for your next project.
