Annual ‘Revive This Nation’ effort yields countrywide harvest
Each year during spring break, Southwestern Seminary deploys preachers across the country to preach revivals in local churches and impact their surrounding communities with the Gospel through a program called “Revive This Nation” (RTN). This year, March 11-14, 87 students and faculty preached from New York to Hawaii, and they collectively saw 90 professions of faith, 31 baptisms, and 307 other commitments.
