When Thom came to a crossroad in his life and answered the call of the Holy Spirit, he came out of the country music field and began singing Gospel music for the Lord.

What is a revival? For many it's an increased spiritual interest or renewal in your faith; for others it's about being "born again" through realizing Jesus Christ for as their personal savior. Jesus said, "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born again" (John 3:3)
Covered dish suppers were served both evenings, beginning at 5:00 pm, prior to the 7:00 pm revival services.
