‘God can communicate in showers or waves,’ say middle school kids in Tennessee as they lead in prayer, song, and repentance.
“God can speak in showers or waves, and at last week’s Discipleship Days, He decided to flood our campus with His presence,” GCA Upper School Principal Angie Nordhorn was quoted as saying in the statement shared with CP.
“As a tenured member of the GCA community, I only remember one other time, in 2010, when we experienced a profound demonstration of the Holy Spirit,” Nordhorn added. “I pray that the Lord will continue to flood our halls with His presence. Discipleship Days is only a ripple in the ocean of what can happen at GCA.”
In the Christian tradition, revivals are often gatherings in which large numbers of individuals come together for prayer and worship, with many seeking forgiveness, confession and sometimes conversion to Christianity.
The revival at Asbury has continued for more than two weeks and has attracted thousands of individuals from outside the state and other countries, and has spread to several other campuses and churches nationwide.
Among the Christian campuses where students are experiencing an outpouring of the Holy Spirit is Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee, which is also holding continual worship gatherings.
Rob Fultz, a campus pastor at Lee, told CP in an earlier interview that their gathering began when a group of students who had watched the events of Asbury and “asked their professor if they could go to the chapel and pray that God would move on our campus as well.”
“The professor said, ‘yes.’ The class of eight to nine students went to the chapel and began to pray. Within a couple of hours, the room started to fill with students, faculty and staff,” Fultz said.
Fultz described the continuous prayer and worship at Lee as “a predominately spontaneous movement of prayer” and “a beautifully sacred movement” that is ongoing.
“We currently are not incorporating worship teams, speakers — other than some students, faculty or staff — or scripted worship service,” Fultz told CP.
“It is still going on. However, as the week progresses, I do anticipate the administration updating the schedule and availability to the public.”
