As the wave of revival moves in campuses and locations throughout the United State, Regent university has announced that it will be having days of worship and prayer to make room for revival in the school.
The routine of campus revival had started with Asbury University last month, as the power of God is revealed in the outpouring, where thousands of Christians had gathered to receive the touch of the holy spirit. Asbury revival is seen to bring back the memories of outpouring in 1970.
Dr. Jeff Gossman, the director of Regent university had attended the Asbury revival when it started in February. On his arrival, he shared his experience. He said: “God is making known his claim on GenZ. This generation has suffered so much loss due to the pandemic. This current outpouring is like their coming-of-age party, where Jesus says to them, ‘I see you. Welcome to the table.” The dean of the school, Dr. Corne Bekker, also shared that: “This is their moment where God is getting a hold of (Gen Z) hearts. Their eyes are opening, and they are surrendering their lives to Christ.”
In the past couple of weeks, there has been an increase in the attendance of believers at Shaw Chapel in Regent university. According to a statement shared by the university, “these gatherings – some up to six hours long – have been marked by humble worship, teaching of scripture, prayer, repentance, and spiritual renewal.”
Following the recent happenings in the chapel, Regent university has announced that it will be holding open worships and prayers from 6th March through to 10th March on the campus.
This announcement was also seen on the official Twitter handle of the school, and the caption read, “OPEN PRAYER & WORSHIP The Shaw Chapel will be open Monday – Friday, March 6th – 10th, for a time of spontaneous worship and prayer. All are welcome. This event will not be live-streamed, but we invite all to join us on campus in Shaw Chapel.”
