MOVE of GOD in SCHOOLS and CHURCH
First Baptist Church in Hodgenville, Kentucky sponsored a four-day event that began in the schools, saw hundreds of students come to church, and ended with 100 salvations and 46 baptisms. Here’s the story from CBN:
The leaders of the church were able to get an evangelist in the public schools with an anti-bullying presentation for elementary and middle school students. Pastors met with the principals last school year to describe the message and share their plans for this week’s event. …
The school outreach resulted in more than 210 students showing up to the church and 59 students coming to the altar for salvation on Tuesday night.
“I asked some of our members, ‘When was the last time we had 210 students in church?'” Rogers said. “They said never. It’s a great thing and God is moving.”
The following night, which was the last night of the crusade, they baptized 46 people and counted 100 salvations.
Response: A ‘Move of God’ that began with an unique outreach in the schools. Praise the Lord, God is moving in unique ways all across America, particularly among the young people in schools and colleges.
Revival is happening at Auburn University. Over 5,000 attended a worship service and over 200 gave their lives to Christ and were later baptized in an impromptu baptismal service in a lake that followed. CBN News:
More than 5,000 people showed up to Unite Auburn’s “Night of Worship”. The campus ministry’s outreach was created to bring the Alabama school’s Christian community together for a night of worship. It featured guest speakers New York Times Best Selling Author Jennie Allen and Pastor Jonathan Pokluda and worship was led by Passion Music.
Allen shared on Instagram that toward the end of the night, she felt led to ask students if they wanted to be baptized.
“I finished a message at Auburn and was off stage and a student texted the pastor beside me they wanted to be baptized tonight. So I went back on stage and asked if anyone else wanted to trust Christ and be baptized,” she explained. …
“Dozens raised their hands,” Allen added.
There wasn’t a tub to baptize the students, so thousands of people headed over to a lake at Auburn’s Red Barn.
“They circled the lake and 6-10 of us were in the water baptizing hundreds,” Allen described.
Response: Revival broke out at Asbury University earlier this year and later at Lee University, and Samford University. Since then God has been moving on college campuses all over America. Auburn University is the latest.
