Life Action Ministries has been hosting Revival Forums since 1989. The panelists at the 2011 Moody Pastors’ Conference included the following well known speakers and authors:

  • Richard Owen Roberts, founder of International Awakening Ministries
  • Jim Cymbala, pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle
  • Steve Canfield, revivalist for Life Action Ministries
  • Colin Hansen, editor for The Gospel Coalition and editor-at-large for Christianity Today

Byron Paulus, president of Life Action, moderated the panel. “The difficulty and disasters within our country have encompassed more than just tornados, but a growing interest in revival among Christian leaders is resulting in hunger for God to manifest His presence in great spiritual power.”

Nearly three hundred pastors gathered to hear the speakers share from their own experiences relating to personal revival, and their continued passion for a widespread move of God in revival and awakening.

The speakers represented a broad spectrum of theological persuasion, yet they reflected a common understanding of the need and hope for a fresh move of God’s Spirit in our day. Each panelist shared what they described as functional substitutes for an authentic work of the Spirit in local churches and among believers in general.

A pastor from Uganda shared how the revived believers there are praying for revival in America. These believers feel that the Lord will send it, either through desperation or devastation, but the choice of how we obtain it is up to us. If we don’t become desperate on our own, then we are asking for devastation to turn us back to God.

Sounds like a great conference on revival!
