God's Word is rich for those who seek revival and do evangelism:

Christian revival in America:

1730-1743: First Great Revival

  • George Whitefield, Jonathan Edwards, Gilbert Tennent
  • Ushered in the Godly principles of the American Revolution

1800-1840: Second Great Revival

  • Led to abolition and women’s rights
  • Red River Meeting House Revival in Logan County, Kentucky

Log College Men…

  • Five Wild Men of the Cumberland

Lessons of revival:

  • Fly in formation
  • Determine the main target to hit
  • Unified to completion

There is no true revival that does not result in evangelism!
