2020 Awakening 70

posted on January 22

Join us for Awakening 70,  a two-day event on February 21 & 22 focused on encountering Jesus through worship, prayer, and learning.

It’s time to WAKE UP! Too many of us are sleepwalking through life discouraged, afraid, lonely, and aimless. Jesus wants to meet us where we’re at, breathe fresh life into us, and invite us to partner with Him in his liberating work in our world. Join us for Awakening 70, a two-day event on February 21 & 22 focused on encountering Jesus. 


On Friday night we will encounter Jesus through a powerful experience of worship and prayer. Bring your joys and sorrows, your gratitude and resentments, your faith and doubts, and your passion and pain. We will surrender it all to Christ as he fills us with a fresh outpouring of His Spirit.


On Saturday morning we will encounter Jesus through visiting ministries and organizations throughout Lexington that are radically loving people on the margins. Everyone will participate in a Mystery Ministry Tour. We will load up on buses and each bus will visit one of ten ministry sites across the city. While on site participants will hear stories of resilience, struggle, and transformation. A host will guide some conversation around strengths and needs in your own communities, and how you might collaborate with others to affect positive change where you live.


We will end our time together on Saturday afternoon with teaching on “Becoming an Awakened Leader” and with worship and prayer.


“Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
-Ephesians 5:14
