[b]Revival Conference: A Sincere Plea for Genuine Revival[/b]
August 1st, 2007
[b]CANTON, August 1st, 2007[/b] - Will God send another great awakening? Can revival still change nations? These are the questions that Greg Gordon, a 27 year old Bible student from Toronto, Ontario, earnestly seeks answers for. Greg is the founder and moderator of www.sermonindex.net, a website dedicated to the preservation and propagation of vintage audio preaching from the former generations, and has offered over 8 million sermon downloads since its inception in December 2002. Since the beginning of this vision there has a been a genuine burden to see the sovereign act of authentic revival occur in the Church of Jesus Christ today. It is from this burden that the conviction for a Revival Conference was implanted into this young mans heart. Now, five years later, this conviction is a reality. This October, hundreds of Christians from all across the globe will be gathering together in one place to seek the Lord regarding this crucial inquiry, pleading with God to rend the heavens and send another Great Awakening. The following is an excerpt from the simple yet profound website, www.revivalconference.com:
"There are over 10,000 conferences that happen every year in America. The 'Revival Conference' is not to be just another conference but an honest, sincere, earnest plea for the desperate need of revival in North America. There is no cost to attend the event. There will be a minimal amount of materials sold. There will be no big bands. The conference will have the chief object to be God-glorifying. The speakers will come on their own accord trusting God for provision. There will be no emphasis on money during the event. The event will be a simple, apostolic, yearning for a genuine biblical revival in our day."
And not only is the burden of this conference striking, but how the conference itself has come into being is equally remarkable. With very little resources, promotion or marketing, the Revival Conference has over 500 registered attendees to date with over 100 of them being pastors and ministry leaders! Represented at the conference will be ten different countries from throughout the world. On top of that, the speakers coming to the conference are veteran preachers, authors and pastors from various Christian backgrounds who share the same burdened passion to see genuine revival in the Body of Christ today.
Revival Conference is hosted by the ministry of www.sermonindex.net and is an inter-denominational event; therefore all are welcome to attend.
When asking Greg about the initial vision of the conference, he replied: I simply said that if this event would be from God, the building would have to be provided freely, the speakers must come freely, and there would be no cost to attend the event. All three of these things have become an actuality. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt God's hand is in this. We are not coming to a conference to hear about God
we are coming to meet the living God. My prayer is that by Gods grace lives will never be the same.
The conference is offering free web-casting to churches and individuals as well as free on-demand downloads of all sessions. There is no excuse to not be a part of this unique, God centered, important event. Pre-register for the event and get more details at: www.revivalconference.com
