Filmmaker Alex Kendrick: Spreading Revival 'Fills My Heart'

The Asbury University Awakening is being moved off campus this week, but that news comes as the fires of revival are continuing to spread to multiple new locations around the U.S.

Christian filmmaker Alex Kendrick visited one of those spots. On Monday, he was at Lee University, a private Christian college in Cleveland, Tennessee. In a video posted to social media, Kendrick, standing outside of the school's chapel, said: "There's no show here. There is no spectacle other than seeing hearts transformed."

"Revival is still going on. That chapel behind me is still filled," he said. "It's been almost two weeks now, and I think that is amazing. My family and I have come up here for a couple of days and just joined in on what God's doing. It is incredible!"

"When there is peace and unity and it's very organic. There's no show here. There is no spectacle other than seeing hearts transformed. Praise the Lord!" the filmmaker said. "And so I'm very, very grateful. So what's going on at Asbury, Lee University, Samford University, Cedarville in Ohio, there's a number of colleges that are now seeking the Lord."

"And praise God for this generation that is seeking after God," Kendrick added. "Oh, it's just good! Man, it fills my heart! So, praise the Lord, and let's pray that the Lord keeps moving as He wills."

As CBN News reported, Lee University Campus Pastor Rob Fultz noted on Twitter on Feb. 10, "What's happening at Asbury is not and will not remain confined. It will, and already is awakening the deep wells of revival on campuses across the nation. They have been churning, pressing against the seals that have kept them hidden, and they are about to burst with new life."

On Saturday, Greg Gordon, the founder of, tweeted a video of Lee students worshipping in the campus chapel.

"Lee University has been meeting now for 4 days straight," Gordon wrote (Feb 16). "Just absolutely overwhelming Holy Spirit Power in the Stone Chapel at Lee University at this moment. —David Chong."

Meanwhile, the revival at Samford University, a private Christian school located on the outskirts of Birmingham, Alabama, is still going strong. On Monday, Greg Gordon posted a video to Twitter showing Samford students worshipping in the university's Reid Chapel.
