FORT WORTH, Texas (SWBTS) – Churches can join Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in promoting spiritual awakening across the United States by hosting revival preachers as part of the seminary’s Revive this Nation program, March 9-12, 2014. Revive this Nation is open to churches in all 50 states, and Southwestern aims to send preachers to every state.

“This long standing tradition of Southwestern is one of the most exciting parts of the year,” said Steven Smith, vice president for student services and communications.

“Our students love lost people, and they love the local church. We are thrilled that churches allow us to serve them in this way.”

During Revive this Nation, Southwestern will send more than 100 students and professors to preach in churches across America and to evangelize the communities around them. The seminary has provided this program for more than 50 years.

Southwestern pays for round-trip transportation of preachers to and from the revival locations, while churches provide housing, meals and local transportation. Churches of any size can request revival preachers and download resources at For more information, call 817-923-1921, ext. 7304.
