Revival in Miami Mike: The basic definition of the word revival is bringing something back to life. In the term of faith there is a deeper meaning bringing a church or even a national back to life.
(Graphic) Mike: Since the early days of the English colonies in the new world, we have experienced Revival or as historians call “Great Awakenings”. These events have happened during or after times of peril. The last one was during the rise of communism, and a world experiencing social change from the 1960 to 1980.
(Video) Mike: Recently a small Christian college in Kentucky, Asbury University, experienced the phenomena of Revival from February 8th through February 24th. On February 15, hashtag "asburyrevival" had over 24 million views on TikTok, then increased to 63 million by the 18th.
(SOT/VO) This revival began a trend across the nation. On March 25th, area residents met for worship at NEO College here in Miami. Organizers Aaron and Jill Bland explain why bringing the spirit of revival to Ottawa County was important.
