FBC Fayette puts major emphasis on revivalcomment (0)

March 24, 2011

First Baptist Church, Fayette, held revival Feb. 13–16, with featured guest Ron Herrod, first vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention. He is also founder and president of R.H.E.M.A. (Ron Herrod Evangelism Ministries Association), which focuses on evangelistic crusades and missions projects.

“My belief is that God prepares a church for revival in His timing,” said Scott Davis, pastor of the Fayette Baptist Association church. “We had prayer meetings leading up to this. … I think God was preparing us for these revival services. All throughout the year, we’ve been focusing on revival and outreach.”

To open the revival, Herrod preached the morning of Feb. 13. That evening, an associational evangelism rally was held.

A Valentine’s Day banquet was held Feb. 14. Herrod spoke about family and those in attendance shared a meal.

Traditional worship services were held Feb. 15–16, with Herrod preaching. Shannon Knight, associate pastor and worship leader at First Baptist Church, Guin, provided music.

Five people made professions of faith and 11 rededicated their lives to the Lord during revival.

“Revival services are kind of like throwing a pebble in the water; there is a big splash at first, but the waves continue long after,” Davis said.
