Frequently Asked Questions

What does our church need to do to get a preacher from Southwestern? 

The first thing a church needs to do is to apply online indicating they wish to participate in Revive This Nation. To fill out an application, click here.

What does our church need to do to get ready for revival? 

Preparation is spiritual and organizational. Churches should prepare spiritually by humbly seeking the Lord and praying for Him to send revival. Churches should prepare organizationally by spreading the Word in the community about the revival meetings and planning for food and lodging for the guest preacher. We will send more detailed resources to churches that will assist in preparing once we receive an application.

What if after our church has agreed to host a revival we must cancel? 

A church may cancel its revival.  However, after January 20th, the church will be accountable to reimburse the cost of the student’s pre-paid ticket to Southwestern Seminary.

Does our church have to apply through this website? 

While churches are encouraged to apply online, a paper application may be obtained.  Please contact us at 817.923.1921 x7300, if you prefer a paper application.
