Call to Radical Devotion: Texas A & M University!

We had an amazing Divine Experiment launch at the university on Sunday afternoon! The chapel was packed with over 200 students and the atmosphere was full of joy and expectation! I joined several campus ministry leaders and pastors calling the students to radical devotion to Jesus for the next 21 days. They are fasting food, media, Facebook, internet, canceling activities and gathering every morning to pray together from 7:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.

Saturday night I met with a bunch of spiritually hungry students and spent hours sharing transformation stories with them and challenging them to believe God for more than they have ever seen before. These students are radical! Some began the fast a week early to prepare their hearts! Many turned off their Facebook 5 days before the launch! They want more of Jesus in their lives and on their campus!

I received a report when I got back to Kansas City Monday morning, the first devotional prayer meeting on campus was full of the presence of God and repentance had already started. The leaders are saying it's already "beyond their expectation". Jesus is so good! Please continue to pray for the students and 2 congregations involved for the next 21 days! Our team will return to Texas A & M in 3 weeks for the Celebration Service to celebrate all the Lord has done among them during this time!

Call to Consecration! Texas A & M University Campus

Last Thursday night I stood in the chapel of the seventh largest university in our nation (47,000 students) and invited students and campus leaders to consecrate themselves to the Lord for 21 days using the “Face to Face Divine Experiment.” They said yes! And they said now! So, on February 13th almost 400 students on the campus will commit to radically realign their hearts with Jesus and separate themselves from the influence of the spirit of the age!

Many of us believe that this is a stake in the ground for a broader consecration on this campus and even other campuses in our nation next Fall. We are already seeing other doors begin to open – Jesus wants to consecrate this generation in radical devotion and prepare them for a spiritual revolution unto transforming revival in our nation!

Let’s contend together and trust God for unprecedented breakthrough on this campus and in College Station, Texas! May it truly be a stake in the ground for His Kingdom to advance on campuses in the coming months!

Please be praying for me this coming weekend when I return to Texas A & M for the launch Sunday afternoon. Pray the Lord gathers, ignites and gives grace to their hearts as they begin their “exodus” from captivity into restored intimacy with Jesus!
