Awakening Open House is a 1-day intensive training on understanding what revival is and how to experience and sustain a spirit and culture of revival within the local church. The goal is to teach, train, and equip pastors and leaders with the tools and values necessary to see an atmosphere of revival and faith remain strong within our churches year-round.
Pastor Stovall and Kerri Weems, along with the Awakening Revival team, will “open up our house” and teach on some very simple, yet often neglected, values that are essential for sustaining revival. A new understanding of these Biblical values has changed the way we view ministry and build God’s house, and we’re so excited to share them with you!
The Awakening Revival team welcomes you and your leaders to the Open House gatherings to build relationships, connect with one another, and talk about how we can see true revival come to our cities and regions as Jesus continues to build His Church.
