“I think people are hungry for revival, for a fresh work in their life,” said Wayne Jenkins, director of evangelism and church growth for the Louisiana Baptist Convention, after the Jan. 23-24 event that took place in Guinn Auditorium on the campus of Louisiana College.
“More than 30,000 people and more than 500 churches participated in the 21 days of prayer and fasting that took place before the Evangelism Conference,” Jenkins continued. “I think that played a big part in the response too. People are tired of the same-old, same-old. They want something more, something deeper than the surface religion they’ve been experiencing.”
