Revival Has Begun in Northwest MN, Meetings Continue August 11-13

“Some of the people felt their lives were changed after we gave the message”, Joe Quernemoen

Just a few months ago Jeff Warner’s Ultimate Strength team held an event in Graceville MN.

The number of people that came to the event quickly filled the available seating, causing the leaders to scramble for more chairs.  At the end of the event, Jeff’s team asked those that wanted to receive Christ to step forward as a public display of faith and to their surprise almost all 175 people came forward.

This all happen a few months ago in June and because of their response, the leaders recognized that God’s hand was all over this and a revival had begun.  So they invited Jeff Warner’s Ultimate Strength team to come back a few months later.

This week the revival meetings continue, August 11, 12, 13,Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:00pm at 1320 Hwy 28 Graceville, MN.

And next week, Bill Vanderbush will be ministering on August 18, 19 & 20 at7:00pm in Graceville.  

The “Hearts Revival” website lists three churches involved with this revival.

None of these churches appear to be located in the town of Graceville.  So if I understand this correctly, Graceville is primarily a recreational city surrounded by two camp grounds, a golf course and a shooting club with a population of maybe 1500.  So about 10% of the town just gave their lives to Christ.

According to Jeff Warner’s Church youth pastor Joe Quernemoen, “we talk about how God changed our lives” “we do some crazy things that gets people’s attention ... and then we share our testimonies and personal experiences”

“We were already there (in June), we went to the Gym and we saw a great move of God”

“They setup for 100 people maybe, and they had to add more chairs and we had maybe 180 people and when we gave the message we had the majority of the people stand up and come to the front”, Joe Quernemoen.

God is alive and well and He is changing the small town of Graceville MN.  If you live in the area, stop by and check it out this weekend.

What’s So Great About Christianity

This book is a response to the culture and media that continues to lie about Christianity. This is a passionate and intellectual presentation of the strengths and historical truths of Christianity. No other religion has brought the world greater rewards than Christianity, because no other religion contains a greater love given to the world by its creator. Without the unquestionable result Christianity, the world would not have been able to sustain itself and would have already been overtaken by death. We live in a time when atheism is attacking Christianity. This book reminds us that Christianity sustains the world.

The Case for Marriage: Why Married People Are Happier, Healthier, and Better Off Financially

Marriage is a public health issue: being single can take almost 10 years off a man's life. The authors combat every negative myth regarding marriage--that it imprisons women or provides the context for abuse--with statistics showing its benefits: married people live longer, are healthier, have greater wealth and happiness, have sex more often, and provide a healthier, happier environment in which to raise children. The authors debunk many myths about marriage and explain the how and why for these results by translating social science theories into layman’s terms. The conclusion is that it is in our best interest to strengthen and uphold marriage and uphold the laws that work to strengthen it.

How Christianity Made the Modern World

The books shows how through century after century, Bible-believing Christians put their faith into action to help those who were unable to help themselves. In an age where Christians are often marginalized and where secular reporters with their warped anti-Christ agenda decry much of what our forefather did or even deny the West's Christian heritage, then this book is refreshing, life-giving and invigorating rain from heaven, soaked in facts, history, testimony and personal observation in country after country and place after place. Christianity is truly responsible for the success of the modern world.

Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

David Platt reflects a wider move of God through which He is stirring His people to live radically for Him to finish discipline all nations (Mt. 24:14 and Mt 28:18-20). Platt urges us to discover Jesus as our sole treasure, to lay aside everything that keeps us from pursuing Him above all else, and to realize that "It's Not About Me." This is the complete opposite message that the world is telling us, that we are the center of the universe and we should live for our personal desires and ambitions without a care in the world for anyone else. The maturity of evil is complete selfishness, while the maturity of righteousness is complete abandonment of selfishness. The harvest is ready.
