Share This article

Asbury University has ended the public revival services that ran for more than two weeks in the school's Hughes Auditorium. But before the campus conclusion, one final event punctuated this awakening with a big exclamation point. CBN News livestreamed it for our viewers on Thursday night.

Asbury leaders said the revival would move off campus to continue at other locations in the central Kentucky area, although it's not clear where that might be. "As part of Asbury's intention of encouraging and commissioning others to 'go out' and share what they have experienced, all services will be hosted at other locations and no longer held at Asbury University," the school has announced. 

On Thursday night, thousands of viewers joined the livestream of that special service right here at, taking place on the national Collegiate Day of Prayer.  "I find it fitting that what started with college students on our campus is ending with college students joined in prayer and worship across the country," University President Kevin J. Brown said.

"I've seen several headlines with titles suggesting that we are ending revival services or that we are scheduled to end revival," Brown said earlier in the week. "And while it is true that Thursday evening will conclude our last service in Hughes Auditorium here on the campus of Asbury University, we know this is not a conclusion to hungry hearts being stirred, and responding by seeking Jesus Christ."

"Over the last few weeks, we have been honored to steward and host services and the guests who have traveled far and wide to attend them," he said. "The trajectory of renewal meetings is always outward—and that is beginning to occur. We continue to hear inspiring stories of hungry hearts setting aside daily routines and seeking Christ at schools, churches, and communities in the U.S. and abroad."
