Lexington, Ky. (FOX 56) — The Asbury revival sparked another worship service right here in Lexington, worthy of a stadium-sized crowd.

Sunday, a worship service was held from 2-11 p.m. at Rupp Arena. The event was organized by Pulse, a nonprofit ministry in Minneapolis that was inspired after attending the twelve-day-long revival at Asbury University.

Although Sunday’s event wasn’t connected to Asbury, Forrest Limon, a young evangelist with Pulse said, the nonprofit hopes to bring people home and continue what the university started.

“Not many people, organizations that are welcoming young people without wanting something from them. this event is no strings attached. Completely supported and prayed over by local ministry leaders, churches, professors, parents, grandmothers, grandfathers, local here and across the nation. So, this really is a once and a lifetime opportunity. “

Music was played and words of prayer were shared all day at Rupp. Thousands of people came to the arena for the event, including students from all across the nation. A whole group from Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee traveled to see the movement continue that started right here in Kentucky,” Malik Hill, a student at Lee University said. “I think this is amazing. I’m really just overwhelmed and kind of lacking words because it’s just so beautiful to see what the lords doing and I’m just glad to be a part of it, to be honest.”

People of all ages were welcome to come to Sunday’s worship, but the event was aimed at ages 15 to 25 years old.

Nick Hall, Evangelist and Founder of Pulse said he hopes Gen Z continues to spread the movement outside of Kentucky and back to their hometowns.

“That they would know that we believe in them, that they would be given tools and connections to take it home. Literally, it’s a baton handoff to literally unleash them, whether it’s Texas, California, we need this everywhere, so let’s just pray, pray for God to send the fire, and unleash these kids. They’re our future, but they’re only going to be our future if we make them our present,” said Hall.


Hall added that it’s Gen Z’s time to stand up and carry on the movement, saying this is just the beginning of what is possible.

“Don’t stop! oh gosh, please don’t stop. Don’t get discouraged, and don’t get lighthearted. The Lord reminds us that he’s close to the brokenhearted and he’s married to the backsliders so whatever condition you may be in. Don’t stop, don’t give up, keep moving, keep pressing. Our kids are going to be connected to this, our grandchildren are going to be connected to this.”

Pulse livestreamed the event on their YouTube channel.
