Who We Are

Welcome to Revolution!

Our Mission is to live out what Jesus Christ proclaimed.

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released,that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free,and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come.” Jesus | Luke 4:18-19

So Jesus explained, ‘I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by Himself. He does only what He sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does.” Jesus | John 5:19

“…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Jesus | Acts 1:8

Our Services

What are services like?
We are laid back in our style, but dynamic in our worship. We believe that every person is important and church was never meant to be a spectator sport. Come find your voice and let your voice be heard.

What is the community like?
Our Mission is to live out what Jesus Christ proclaimed. We believe that it all begins and ends with relationship. Relationship with God through Christ and with one another in love. We believe that Harvard Square is our Jerusalem, Cambridge and Greater Boston areas are our Judea and Samaria. So whether you are new in town, a long-time resident, an undergrad student, a grad student, international student or you work in the area you are welcome at Revolution. Where we desire to reach the world with the Gospel.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Come just as you are. Whether you are a seeker, walking on the journey or fully engaged as a follower of Jesus, we want to meet you.

Chris Gleason

I have 4 great loves in my life; my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the most amazing, beautiful, gifted woman in the world, my wife Ishtar and a our two precious gifts, our little man, Royce and our little princess, Ilaria. I strive to live my life to honor these relationships and to love others with the same love I have received. One of my favorite things in the world is to hear people’s stories, what has made them who they are. Every person has walked down a unique path that has shaped them and grown them into the blessing they are. I think about the words of Paul in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” The Greek word for workmanship is poiema which literally translates work of art, so we are God’s works of art, created in Christ Jesus to do good works. I love to see how God the Master Artist is working on every person’s canvas, their lives. While we are not simply a compilation of our experiences, I believe that God uses these to shape us and make us more like Him. The common thread through all of my life is people. I am motivated by the desire to see every person walking in God’s desire and purpose for them no matter their chosen profession. I know what it is like to be a person that does not believe they will ever accomplish anything or make a difference in the world and to see Jesus intersect my life and forever be changed. God looks at every person and sees their potential and that is what I attempt to do, have God sized glasses that look at who people can be not just who they are. I have had the privilege of living in a number of different cultures and experiencing people in their world. I have owned and operated businesses, worked in construction, been through seminary and tried to be a good friend. I presently have the privilege of being the lead pastor of Revolution Church, in Cambridge, Massachusetts which meets at Lesley University's Brattle Campus in Harvard Square. We are a community of people who are striving to love Jesus and love one another the way He desires us to. If you have a story, we want to hear it. If you have a dream, we want to encourage it. If you desire a community, we want to be it. If you need a friend, give us the opportunity. On a personal note… I have an affinity for adrenalin, whether that is bungee jumping, mtn. biking or swinging on a swing set. I love most sports, especially surfing, snowboarding, volleyball, cycling and dodgeball. I have been seen doing a few triathlons in the past and could be encouraged to run bandit in the Boston Marathon. We have recently relocated from Southern California to the right coast and love Cambridge and all that encompasses.
