Option 3: "Awaken Us: a Concert for Revival"

Since 1985, Terry & Barbi Franklin have been worldwide musical revivalists, ministering in 37 countries"Inspiring Love in the Home & Revival in the Church." Their passion is to see true, Heaven-sent revival in America as well as globally, beginning in each of our hearts and homes.

In 2011, inspired by Egypt's Christian revival that began after a 40-day fast in 2010, Terry & Barbi led 500 churches through Awaken Us: 40 Days to Fast and Pray. American Family Association and many prayer organizations partnered with them to spread the word nationwide. Over 30,000 people united to fast and pray at the end of 2011. Many lives were changed, and many churches are continuing a fasting and prayer emphasis.

Since then, in addition to their well-loved Family Concert Ministry, Terry & Barbi are now offering a special event for churches and communities, "Awaken Us: a Concert for Revival" which focuses on personal, local and national revival to inspire a "revolution of repentance". It includes music from their NEW CD, "Awaken Us" (read description). In this presentation, they include scriptures, prayers, and their own worship and revival songs throughout, as well as compelling video testimonies from revivals around the world. Often churches are having them follow this event with an "Evening of Prayer & Worship" to put prayer into practice. Pastors have commented that corporate prayer has been re-ignited in their congregations through these intimate times of prayer and worship where God's presence moves among His people.

altercallTerry says, "God is doing a new thing in the American churches. There is a renewed hunger for prayer, which is great news!" Many now understand our desperate need for another national revival like past Great Awakenings. Historically, this has always happened when Christians cry out to God in humble, unified prayer.

Awaken Us: a Concert for Revival combined with their Evening of Prayer & Worship have become life-changing events in many churches and communities across America!
