Pentecostal Leaders Prep for ‘Fresh Outpouring’ to Mark Anniversary of Historic Revival

by | Apr 4, 2019 | Revival

In the United States, revival fires began in the early 1990s under the ministry of South African-born evangelist Howard-Browne in upstate New York where it was reported that the power of the Holy Spirit “fell without warning” during Howard-Browne’s meetings.

In 1995, the Brownsville Revival, also known as the Pensacola Outpouring, continued the stream of revivals that broke out alongside the Toronto Blessing. Over the course of five years, an estimated 4 million people attended the revival meetings at Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, led by Brownsville pastor Kilpatrick.

The revivals were characterized by an overwhelming sense of the presence of God, spontaneous joy and laughter, deliverance, physical and emotional healing, and restored marriages and relationships.

Now, leaders of the biggest charismatic revival movement in modern times are planning for a fresh move of the Holy Spirit this fall—25 years after a series of powerful outpourings shook America and the world.

“Light the Fire Again Conference 2019—Pensacola,” spearheaded by Christ for All Nations, will take place Sept. 4-7, 2019, in Pensacola, Florida—the location of the Brownsville Revival/Pensacola Outpouring in 1995. Registration for Light the Fire Again—Pensacola is free at the Christ for All Nations website at cfan.org.

“The waves of revival that swept around the world in the 1990s have left a lasting impact on millions of people around the globe,” said evangelist Daniel Kolenda, leader of Light the Fire Again.

“We’re believing God to rekindle the flames of revival and see a mighty move of the Holy Spirit sweep across the earth, stirring the hearts of this generation. We will celebrate history and, together, empowered by the Holy Spirit, we will make history.”

Organizers anticipate up to 10,000 participants from the U.S. and around the world at the Pensacola Bay Center gathering. They are expecting many of those who experienced the charismatic and Pentecostal revivals of the 1990s and beyond to come to Pensacola to re-ignite their passion for God.

Revival leaders also hope the event will draw a new generation of young people eager to experience a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

The speaker line-up is a ‘who’s who’ of anointed evangelists, including many key figures in the revival movements of a quarter-century ago. They include Rodney Howard-Browne, John Arnott, Claudio Freidzon, Carlos Annacondia, John Kilpatrick, Heidi Baker, Todd White and others.

“We are expecting people from all over the world to have an encounter with God like never before,” said Kolenda, who also will be preaching at the Pensacola event. “You won’t want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime gathering.”

The Pensacola event will follow “Light the Fire Again Conference 2019—Toronto” to be held May 1-4 in the city where the Toronto Blessing movement started in 1994, spreading revival worldwide.

More information about “Light the Fire Again Conference 2019—Pensacola”, including a full list of speakers, can be found at lightthefireagain.org.

Christ for All Nations (CFAN, cfan.org ) was launched in 1974 by Reinhard and Anni Bonnke, German missionaries to Africa.

What began as a small evangelistic meeting in Lesotho grew into massive-scale evangelism and healing crusades, involving Holy Spirit outpourings on hundreds of thousands of people.

A single crusade in Nigeria drew 1.6 million people. Today, embraced by a new wave of anointed evangelists, CFAN is a global revival and healing movement in the charismatic tradition.
