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.
Sedalia Revival: Saturday Night over 1,000 showed up for the final service. So did the Holy Spirit.
Then Sunday there was a picnic and pool party plus a baptism service. It was an incredible atmosphere where hundreds of folks from a bunch of different churches ate and rejoiced together in recreation.
As those of us in ministry and leadership rejoiced; we informally met together and we talked about this weeks revival. The responses were all the same: the Holy Spirit showed up and a new foundation for unity among Christians in Sedalia had been laid. Also, ‘more’ was a word I heard over and over again.
But everyone I talked to agreed that this was just the beginning and we all can’t wait to see what the Lord is going to do next in our community. There seemed to be a consensus that the planning and prayer meetings for the pastors and leaders needed to continue and let the Lord continue to move in our midst.
Many were saying that they were hoping to see a revival among the youth and in the schools soon and maybe some kind of ministry during the Missouri State Fair which is held here in Sedalia in August. Come Holy Spirit and continue to hover over our city and area.
There was a huge Thunderstorm in Sedalia last night that affected attendance to the Revival. The storm had winds up to 70 mph and did a lot of damage in KC and the surrounding area but circled around and missed the Revival site. Early on, winds began pull up the tent along with the poles and pegs but after prayer we received only some rain. And there was a double rainbow at the end of the storm- Praise the Lord!
Over 600 came anyway
590 in the main tent
43 in the children’s tent
lots of folks prayed for
And a Double rainbow!
The Holy Spirit showed up again! Come tonight (7/15) at 7pm and experience the incredible worship music, testimonies, preaching, and a unique time in the presence of the Lord Jesus and his Holy Spirit.
Over 800 attended the second night (Thursday 7/13) of the Sedalia Revival.
790 in the main tent
65 in the children’s tent
1750 viewed it on Facebook live
Many received prayer
Some were healed
and 2 Salvations
The Holy Spirit was flowing and many were blessed in untold ways. The focus tonight seems to have been on receiving prayer for more of God, for help with difficulties, and for healing. I believe that there will be many testimonies of blessing and healing coming out of tonight and in the coming services.
Come tonight at 7pm and experience what God is doing for yourself-
I believe that the first first night (Wed. 7/12) of the Sedalia Revival was a blessed event. Over 900 showed up but more importantly so did the Holy Spirit. Tears came to my eyes as the evening progressed—I commented to one of the leaders:
This is what I have been waiting for all of my life.
Here’s the official counts for the first night:
902 people in the main tent
70 in the children’s tent
1 child dedication
Plus many folks were prayed for.
I have been praying for Revival for years. In 2015 we stopped in Sedalia to visit some relatives, figuring that we would only be here for 3 days or so. But the Lord had different plans for us and we are still here—because he told me that this is where our destiny is and that revival would come here in Sedalia and I would be a part of it.
I believe that last night was just the beginning of a Move of God that will begin with this series and carry on with many future events to come. I believe that all of the churches in this city and area will begin to be blessed in an uncommon way with the Holy Spirit; including healings, and miracles like never before. I also believe that coming soon there will a major Move among the youth in this city and the surrounding area. Come Holy Spirit.
Come tonight at 7pm and experience it for yourself.
Some 4,500 people were baptized over the week-end at Pirates Cove in Newport, California. The scene was reminiscent of the Jesus People Revival were thousands were baptized at this same location during the late 60’s and early 1970’s. The event followed the recent Harvest Crusade in So. California (July 2-4).
“On the day of Pentecost, after Peter preached, we read in the Bible that 3,000 people were baptized. At Pirates Cove, we are looking at a baptism of biblical proportions,” Laurie told the Washington Times.
REVIVAL SEDALIA! City-wide Revival. Starting Wednesday, July 12, 2023 – July 16, 2023, every night at 7:00 p.m.
@Northwest corner of 65 Hwy and Eagle View Drive, Sedalia, MO
The pastors and leaders of more than seven churches and five ministries are sponsoring a tent revival in Sedalia ,Missouri. The meetings and preparation leading up to this event have been abundantly blessed by the Holy Spirit. The Words received from the Lord about this series: “Let me do it” and “It will be done with little effort”
Those words have been true in all the details in the preparation; as one group and business after another volunteered their products and services when they heard about the revival. It has been amazing—God is doing this and we are expecting a major move of God in Sedalia this week.
We will be posting about the services. Come Holy Spirit.
“There was an electric, revival-like atmosphere in that room both nights. You could sense God’s presence,” Laurie said in a press release sent to Christian Headlines.
“We had an incredible immersive worship experience in the round,” Laurie said. “Thousands of people were turned away each night because every seat was taken by excited believers who wanted to worship. At the same time, this was our most effective evangelistic event that we perhaps have ever had.”
Note that 270 churches from the area participated and partnered in the event. Also the worship music was provided by Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith, Taya, Phil Wickham and the Passion worship band.
When Greg Laurie says that: “this was our most effective evangelistic event that we perhaps have ever had,” we should really pay attention. I believe that God is beginning to move in a special way all across America.
An unlikely move of God is taking place in Guinea Bissau of northwest Africa. Nearly 70% of the population is Muslim and the small Christian community (11.7%) is being intimidated by Islamic push in the country to convert everyone to Islam. Nevertheless a recent World Harvest crusade, led by Evangelist Jacob Ebersole resulted in bringing nearly 20,000 to Christ. From the Charisma News article:
The first night of the crusade was a massive success.
“Thousands came far and wide to hear the gospel,” Ebersole says. “Some even traveled in canoes and boats on rough waters from islands off the coast to be a part of this. I’ve never seen anything like it before. We’ve had the privilege of being on the front row witnessing a move of God that seemed impossible at every turn. … God is writing a story and it’s not stopping.”
Night after night, tens of thousands cried out to Jesus in repentance and faith at this crusade. There were over 18,477 documented decisions for Christ. There were thousands more that occurred in the day-to-day evangelization by local Christians.
Amazingly, the President of the country showed up for the first night and actually facilitated in getting the equipment needed for the meetings. Plus the move continues. Read the whole Charisma article.
