The spiritual revival that began at Asbury College in Kentucky continues to affect many other schools across the country. Many videos that have gone viral on social networks testify to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
On Wednesday, February 8, the students of Asbury Christian University in Kentucky had a particularly strong spiritual time during their traditional Wednesday morning service. I'Asbury Collegian, the college newspaper, reports that during a call for confession, a hundred people fell to their knees, touched by the presence of God. So much so that for more than two weeks, the worship continues.
The outpouring of the Holy Spirit is now reaching many other universities across the country such as the reports Lee University campus pastor Rob Fultz, "what is happening in Asbury is not and will not remain confined." Students at the universities of Lee in Virginia, Samford in Alabama, Shawnee in Oklahoma and Cedarville, Ohio in particular are affected by this spiritual awakening.
On social networks, many videos that have gone viral testify to the crowds attending the meetings and the manifest presence of God.
On February 17, Samford University posted a video of Reid Chapel on its Twitter account. “Over the past 48 hours, what began as a small gathering of a few students...to worship, has grown into a multitude of members of our community gathered together, experiencing an outpouring of prayer, testimony, hope and love.” she shared.

Baylor campus last night. Growing intensity and urgency in prayer and worship will lead to accelerating movement of revival. A powerful “How to Pray” document circulating on campus. Never in my 47 years of revival ministry have I seen this widespread of movement. #onecry pic.twitter.com/y4X60Ebnja— Byron Paulus (@ByronPaulus) February 20, 2023

Asbury University announced the end of on-campus services and said spiritual times will continue at other locations in central Kentucky, without giving further information. CBN News broadcast live this Thursday, February 23, the last special service. This National Day of Collegial Prayer is available for replay on their YouTube channel.
Some universities, for their part, hope that this revival will reach their school, as is the case for Baylor University, Southwestern Seminary or even Texas Baptist University.
