Fall Revival September 11-15
WILMORE, KY—Asbury College’s annual Fall Revival series will return to Hughes Auditorium September 11-15. Services are free and open to the community.
This year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Charles Lake, will speak Monday-Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. and at 10 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. His theme, adapted from 1 Peter, will be “Living a Holy Life in an Unholy World.” The offering from this week will go to World Vision’s Acting on Aids initiative. All funds raised will benefit a village in Swaziland.
Dr. Lake is a senior consultant for parent church planting for New Church Specialties and a consultant for discipleship for the Salvation Army. He holds his D. Min. and M. Div. from Asbury Theological Seminary, M.A. from Butler University and B.A. from Asbury College. Lake is the founding pastor of an independent, interdenominational church in Greenwood, Ind., where he served for 28 years. During his tenure there, the church grew into a network of 32 congregations in Indiana, Kentucky, and Brazil. His book, Discipleship Training: An Experience in Training and Accountability has been translated into six languages and is used across the United States and Canada and by The Salvation Army.
Asbury College has a rich heritage of several well-known revivals in 1950 and 1970, which brought national media attention to the college and spread quickly to campuses and churches nationwide. In February of 2006, a spontaneous revival began during a regular chapel service and lasted for five days.
