"Revival is the visitation of God which brings to life Christians who have been sleeping and restores a deep sense of God's near presence and holiness. Thence springs a vivid sense of sin and a profound exercise of heart in repentance, praise, and love, with an evangelistic outflow." - J.I. Packer

Don’t you long for God’s Spirit to move amongst us in this way?

Join us as we consider the topic of Revival theologically, historically and practically and pray that God would enliven his people by his Holy Spirit.

"To look back upon the progress of the divine kingdom upon earth is to review revival periods which have come like refreshing showers upon dry and thirsty ground, making the desert to blossom as the rose, and bringing new eras of spiritual life and activity just when the Church had fallen under the influence of the apathy of the times."

- E.M. Bounds
