US: Revival breaking out at Historically Black Universities
by Karen Faulkner, Worthy News Correspondent
(Worthy News) – As several other Christian colleges follow in the steps of the spontaneous revival meetings which first broke out at Kentucky’s Asbury Christian University last month, reports are coming in that students at a number of secular Historically Black Universities are also being suddenly drawn toward God, CBN News reports.
Concerning an apparent move of God upon students at non-religious HBUs, Charisma magazine reported that Pastor Arthur Breland of United Church in Atlanta has attested that revival is breaking out at the nearby Morehouse and Spelman colleges and at Clark Atlanta University.
“They are gathering in groups of 50 to 70 students to pray, do evangelism, repent of sin, and worship Jesus,” Pastor Breland wrote on social media.
Separately, Yasmin Pierce, director of the evangelistic/discipleship Black Voices Movement, told CBN News this month that reports have been coming of revival at HBUs. Recounting one report out of an HBU in North Carolina, Ms. Pierce said: “Now, the student union on this campus is a three-story building, but they just say, ‘We’re just going to share the gospel in just open air.’ So they just start preaching the gospel and people stop in their tracks all across this student union.And he boldly says, ‘OK, if you know you need to give your life to Jesus today, I want you to come down here right now, and we’re going to pray for you.’”
“And all the way up from the third floor, people start streaming down to commit their lives to Jesus Christ,” Ms Pierce told CBN.
The last reported great spiritual awakening among young people in the US happened in the 1960s and 70s when millions are believed to have put their faith in Christ as their Lord and Savior.
