Southwestern Seminary offers revival preachers

Students from Southwestern Baptist Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas, are available to lead spring revivals, March 13-16, 2011.

By sending students to preach revival meetings, Southwestern’s Spring Revival Program makes it possible for all churches in the lower 48 states to hold at least one revival per year.

While on the field, preachers will not only present God’s Word during revival services, but they will also partner with local pastors for evangelism.

During the spring 2010, Southwestern students and faculty members shared the Gospel with nearly 950 people one-on-one and preached 230 sermons throughout the week. This effort resulted in 211 decisions, including 59 professions of faith.

Since the program began in 1959, the seminary has deployed more than 5,500 preachers, ministering in more than 4,850 churches throughout the United States. Participants through the years have reported nearly 14,000 total professions of faith.

While Southwestern will pay for the round-trip transportation of preachers to and from the revival locations, churches are responsible for housing, meals and, in some cases, limited transportation, such as to and from the airport and the church.
