Fall Revival, Sept. 10-14
WILMORE, KY—Asbury College’s annual Fall Revival series will return to Hughes Auditorium, September 10-14. Services are free and open to the community.
This year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Richard Allen Farmer, will speak Monday-Thursday at 6:30 p.m. and at 10 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in Hughes Auditorium. His theme, adapted from Luke, will be “Through the Lukan Glass: Seeing Ourselves in the Gospel.”
Richard Allen Farmer began piano studies at age 11 in New York City and came to know Jesus Christ at 12. As he grew in his faith and musicianship, the two became intertwined. Farmer now uses his music as a vehicle for inspiration, motivation, challenge and entertainment for all of God’s people. He earned a bachelor of music degree from Nyack College in 1975 and master of divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1980. Farmer was awarded an honorary doctor of divinity degree from Gordon College in 1986 and an honorary doctor of sacred theology degree from Houghton College in 1999.
An experienced pastor and college chaplain, Farmer served as senior pastor of Bethany Baptist Church in Pittsburgh (1980-1988) and as dean of the chapel at Gordon College (1988-1992) and Taylor University (1999-2002).
Committed to global ministry, Farmer has impacted the lives of people in England, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Australia, Mali, Burkina Faso, Guinea, Peru, Chile, Cote d’ lvoire, Kenya, Canada, the Philippines and most states of the United States.
Farmer spends most of his time in a church renewal ministry that uses expository preaching and music to stimulate the worldwide body of followers of Jesus the Christ, one group at a time.
A New York City native, Farmer lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife, Rosemary, and son, Timothy.
The offering from this week will go to All God’s Children and Sunrise Children’s Services in Lexington.
