Tennessee Tent Revival Meetings

A spiritual revival continued through the summer in Northeastern Tennessee, with more than 200 people accepting Christ after 12 weeks of meetings. It’s called the #GreenevilleAwakening, and it’s being held under a big tent near Greeneville, TN.

“We’ve taken the Word of God and showed them how to be saved . . . people from all walks of life, all social statuses,” evangelist D.R. Harrison told CBN News. “It’s just been amazing to see the power of God move in these last days.”

Harrison said he originally was scheduled to preach a one-week revival beginning April 15 at the Greystone Freewill Baptist Church. He said in week three, the crowds increased to standing room only.

He explained that it’s not a Baptist revival. People from several denominations are attending. “There have been Methodists, Presbyterians, Nazarenes, Church of God, Baptists. It’s just been a community-wide revival,” he said. “The hunger that people have had for this has been outstanding. It’s just been unbelievable.”

The evangelist said that because they were running out of room at the church, he and the pastor began to pray, and God opened a door. A North Carolina man provided an 80′ by 140′ vinyl tent that seats approximately 1,500. People from several states are attending. “That’s our prayer—that revival would just spread across America,” says Harrison.
