Revive This Nation

Where will revival begin?

March 13-17, 2016

This spring break, Southwestern will be sending over 100 students and professors to preach in churches across America and to evangelize the communities around them. Revival begins in the church. If your church is interested in hosting a preacher for the week or if you are a student looking to preach, now is the time to prepare. Now is the time to ask God to revive this nation.

Revive This Nation at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary is an historic program aimed at serving Southern Baptists as a catalyst for revival. For more than fifty years, students and professors have spent Spring Break preaching revivals and ministering in churches across this nation. God has blessed this effort with more than 14,000 people coming to know Christ. From street corners and front doors to pulpits and pews, we continue to have one aim: preaching the Word and reaching the world.

Partnerships with churches make this ministry successful. Churches host revival meetings where our preachers proclaim the Word of God from the pulpit and on the streets. Preachers consistently tell us that this program has opened their eyes to the need for workers in the fields and churches report how a movement of God has awakened them to the greatness of God and the urgency of His call. We are eager to go, but we need partner churches to provide opportunities for our students and professors.
