Revival is just one of those words. We talk about it, plan for it, pray for it, when it all actuality most people in the church don't really know what it is, what they look like, or how they start and what, if anything, we can do to facilitate them. This film bypasses conventional understanding and takes a good long look at Christian Revival from the standpoint prophetic history; looking at the past and calling forth the future.
Eighteen months ago I heard a series preached on the subject of revival. I liked what I heard and it was obvious to me that those around me did too; the mounting energy, shouting, dancing, fervent prayer and weeping over a city lost in darkness. But when the teaching series ended and we moved onto the next sermon series the passion that was so evident among the congregants dwindled.
The notion struck me that I still didn't know what revival was though I hear the term ?tossed about often. That's when the Lord told me to start digging into the ancient wells of revival in my city. As I began to read books and articles I found online the scope of the project widened to include other cities, and then whole nations.
What I have discovered has been truly transformational in my life and destructive to previous patterns of thought. I have discovered the Father's heart for me. But also my city, my nation and the whole world. I have come to understand what is meant by the term “revival” and more importantly, what isn't meant. I have found common threads weaving their way through the ages of church history and now I want to share it with you in this exciting documentary film.
The film is currently in the pre-production stage. I have recently joined forces with Kayla Larson, a producer of Court TV, and Nancy Magiera of the His United Body Ministries in the creation of this film. Once we have financing in place, we can move forward with the production phase of the feature-length film we are set out to create.Bryce Conlan Director/Co-Producer
