Historic Collaboration to Prayerwalk for Revival on Every College Campus
National ministry leaders, spearheaded by InterVarsity and Cru, are working together in unprecedented ways to facilitate revival on college campuses across the country. Their strategy: prayer, “boots on the ground,” and data-sharing to give real-time information to ministry partners intent on bringing the gospel to local campuses. Their goal: prayerwalk all 4,948 campuses in the U.S. So far, they’ve reached more than half with walks on 1,779 campuses.
York Moore, the national evangelist and executive director of catalytic partnerships for InterVarsity, told CBN Newstheir vision. The movement, known as EveryCampus, is rooted in a belief that revival is coming. “The whole intent is to pray for revival in America. We can’t force God’s hand,” says Moore, “but we can express our unity and express our faith in prayer.”
EveryCampus has rallied 150 partner organizations, including Navigators, the Foursquare Church, and the Luis PalauAssociation. Dan Allan, executive director of mission expansion at Cru, told CBN News that the growing coalition is breathing new life into campus ministry.
“There’s this fresh wind that is blowing through long-time organizations,” he says.
