The first annual Replenish 5K Run / Walk was held on March 26th, 2016 at Bisset Park in Radford, VA. “For a first time 5K, this is a GREAT turnout,” said Rhonda Hudson, 5K Co-Coordinator. The run had around 50 online registrations and an additional 10-15 on Saturday morning. Running conditions were on the cool side with clouds overhead until later in the morning at the awards ceremony where awards were given to the top three male and female group categories.
The 5K event served as a fundraiser to benefit Replenish Festival as well as Joy Ranch Home for Children. “As a ministry, we feel it important to serve our community and to reach out to them and support others,” said Teresa Martin, who volunteers in the role of Marketing and Communications. Joy Ranch reaches out to families in crisis to provide a Christ-centered environment for its residents. Several people from the home also ran in the race.
People of all ages came out to run and walk the 5K event. The age brackets ranged from kids to adults over 65. One runner, Andrea Schrader, came with her 4-legged friend, Dash, to run the race. After further conversation, this was not Dash’s first time racing. The dog often attends races with his owner. Another notable participant was a double-lung transplant recipient who ran and finished the 5K Race! God Is Good! 🙂
Replenish Ministries wishes to extend a big Thank You to all of the runners who came out and for all of the generous donations from local businesses! Special thanks to our water sponsors: 3300 Artesian Water in Bland County, Willis Village Mart, Slaughter’s Supermarket and Floyd Xpress. Special thanks to our food sponsors: Food Lion in Pulaski, Kroger in Fairlawn, TA Produce in Dublin, and Walmart in Dublin. A special thanks also goes to 5K Coordinators, Rhonda and Harry Hudson, Robert Smith and his
wife, Connie, and all of the 5K volunteers. “We couldn’t have done it without them,” says Travis Bishop, ministry President.
Replenish Ministries plans to hold a 5K event annually in addition to their annual Replenish Festival.

Replenish Festival is brought to you by Replenish Ministries, Inc. Replenish Ministries, Inc. is a 501c 3 non-profit organization founded by Travis and Mandie Bishop. “We felt the need to bring an atmosphere of worship in this area (Southwest Virginia), a place where all people can join together and celebrate while knocking down all barriers for something bigger than ourselves,” says Travis Bishop. This ministry started as a organization in 2014 with a vision and purpose to help the people of the world find hope, peace, joy, and to be replenished in their heart, soul, and mind through the salvation of Jesus Christ. Founding board members include: Travis Bishop, Greg Taylor, Edward Slaughter, Jackie Myers, and Teresa Martin. As this ministry grows, our hearts are to serve this nation and foreign lands through missionary work, evangelism, concerts, outreach programs, and ministries.
Our first annual Replenish Festival was held in Floyd, Virginia on July 2015. It was truly a success with over 50 people coming to know the Lord! What an amazing journey we’ve begun. We believe that the Lord has called us to do this event for SouthWest VA and surrounding areas. Replenish Festival is a music festival with a purpose for people to find what they are missing in their life to be replenished. It’s also a festival about faith, family, and fun. We hope Go-Fund-Me will help with a portion of the funds we need to raise. If you would like to contribute to GoFund Me, please click https://www.gofundme.com/replenishfest.
