While the process God uses to bring revival to a people may be unique to that time and place, there are consistent themes that frequently appear: Prayer, Repentance, and Unity among Believers
The Champions Movement provides you with the tools to walk this three-pronged path toward seeking God for Revival!
Here’s how it works:
Once a month for 12 months we ask you to commit to gather for a few hours with local pastors and leaders. As the year comes to a close, each participant will seek out their own group to lead through the process of seeking the heart of God together.
First 45 minutes: Study and discussion on revival and awakening:
We are seeking to raise up hundreds of pastors and leaders who have a common understanding and terminology about revival and awakening. We must all agree on the real problem and the real solution. We will seek to accomplish this through the first hour or so of your time together as you study. We will provide a brief video link for you, along with sample discussion questions.
Second 45 minutes: Revival-focused prayer time:
Imagine what it will be like to see hundreds and hundreds of leaders united once a month in serious, specific prayer for revival and awakening! We will seek to accomplish this by making the second part of your session a well-led prayer time. Remember: You are not only leading these men in prayer, you are also modeling how they can lead their group next year in prayer. Don’t assume everyone in the group knows how to do this.
Final 30 minutes: Seek God for direction:
There is something powerful that happens when a group of leaders unite their hearts and minds and ministry. We will seek to accomplish this by taking time at the end of each prayer session to ask one simple question: What is the Spirit of God telling us to do, perhaps together, to cooperate with Him in revival and awakening?
Prior to the Second Great Awakening, a pastor named David Campbell was used to disciple a group of men in the ways of God in revival. These men went into the frontier and became known as the “Five Wild Men of the Cumberland”! They were mightily used of God in the camp meetings that spread revival and the church across the Western frontier.
You are training the next five wild men! May God use you greatly in this critical task at this critical hour.
