A new documentary chronicling the Asbury Revival has been compiled by film group Sojourner Films.

The Christian-based organization has released an eight-minute documentary detailing the story of the Asbury University Outpouring, which has received worldwide attention, and right at a time when American is perhaps more divided than ever.

“What started as a small group of Asbury University students worshipping through the end of routine chapel launched into a continuous outpouring that has lasted multiple weeks,” stated Madison Anderson, Senior at Asbury University and Freelance Writer.

“On February 8, 2023, God actively moved and called students to linger in Hughes auditorium for an extended time of prayer and worship. Unknown to the students at that time was the wildfire of spiritual renewal and powerful community worship that would ensue from simply listening to God’s simple call. As students stayed locked into the Holy Spirit, transformation began, and more people answered the call to go to Hughes.

“Hearts were broken for Christ and mended, and worship poured onto campus at all hours. The young Generation Z known for its lostness and identification with worldly ideologies, rose up as a spiritually equipped army serving God from the frontlines. The university’s students, faculty, and staff members, along with local community members and worldwide travelers have gathered into Hughes to witness an outpouring of God’s love and spiritual renewal.”

As God’s church gathered, healing and miracles were present. This Asbury outpouring, also known as the Asbury University revival, has spread across the nation and globe, sparking continuous revival on various college campuses such as Cedarville, Northern Kentucky University (NKU), and Lee University, as well as garnering the attention from other countries like Brazil, Israel, and the Netherlands.

The revival has been compared to similar revivals at Asbury, notably one that took place in 1970, which had far-reaching consequences in Methodism, culture of the United States, and the growth of the Jesus movement. Notably, news of the revival largely spread on social media, as the participants are mainly members of Generation Z.

It has been attended by approximately 15,000 people each day and by its end, the revival brought 50,000-70,000 visitors to Wilmore, representing more than 200 academic institutions and multiple countries.

The event was ended by the university when they were informed by the CDC that an unvaccinated person from Jes,samine County, Kentucky who attended the revival on 18 February 2023 tested positive for the Measles following their attendance at the revival. The case was the third in Kentucky in three months previous to the revival.
