Tent revival focused on spiritual breakthrough | Religion – The Mountaineer

CANTON A multi-church tent revival drew up to 200 per night during the four-day event at Crestview Baptist Church outside Canton last week.

Called Breakthrough Haywood, the focus was on a spiritual breakthrough in Haywood County.

"I challenged our church, Crestview Baptist, and numerous pastors and churches across Haywood County, including Haywood Baptist Association churches, to join with us in praying and fasting for spiritual breakthrough in our community," said Pastor Dan Page at Crestview.

As a result, for 40 days preceding the meetings, many fasted and prayed, including Sheriff Greg Christopher.

"His heart is to bring genuine life transformation to our residents of Haywood County," Page said, noting that the sheriff posted daily prayer prompts for 40 days through the prayforhaywood Facebook page starting Sept. 1 and ending Oct. 11, when the revival started.

Several churches participated and assisted in the meeting, including Jenny Murray, Emily Nagle and Brian Edwards (drummer), all of whom are leaders of New Covenant Church of Clyde and assisted with the worship ministry, along with Tommy Payne, worship leader of Pinnacle Church of Canton.

Churches represented in the meetings included Mt. Zion Baptist Church, New Covenant, Dellwood Baptist, Burnette Cove Baptist and others.

After a rainy start on Sunday, the meetings swelled in attendance Monday evening with Tuesday evening and Wednesday evening seeing over 200 attendees in the tent both nights," Page said.

"Our inspiration for the tent meeting came from our sister church, Dellwood Baptist, and pastor Bobby Rogers," Page said, referencing the multiple tent meetings that focused on revival and spiritual renewal in Haywood.

The guest speaker was Pastor Timmy Blair from Angier, who pastors Piney Grove Chapel Baptist Church.

"As we met in the tent for the first time, we began to feel the presence of the Spirit of the Lord in the tent, named The Tabernacle. As we have been fervently praying and seeking God for a move of His Spirit, we were overcome with the weight of the presence of the Holy Spirit there, especially around the stage and altar," Page said. "And the power of the Spirit of God was so evident when every night, the altar filled with people praying, culminating on the last night, Wednesday evening, when we witnessed a young man (previously an atheist) literally run down to the altar, fall on his knees, and express his newfound faith in Christ as Savior. He gave his life completely to Jesus Christ."

Page said prayer is continually going up for Haywood County asking that God move all across this county and bring "miraculous life transformation to people from one end of Haywood to the other."
