After a weekend of massive crowds at the Asbury University revival, a big change is coming that will permanently take the revival off campus.
An estimated 15,000 to 20,000+ people attended revival services over the weekend at Asbury. This is all happening in the small town of Wilmore, Kentucky which normally has a population of 6,000.
On Sunday, Greg Gordon, founder of SermonIndex.net, tweeted a photo of people standing in line to worship on Saturday night at the university campus.
"UPDATE: Over 20,000 people came to Asbury last night, with 5 overflow buildings and a grass lawn filled. there is a 2.5 mile backup of cars going into Wilmore. Cry out to God for your FIRST LOVE to be renewed," Gordon wrote.

Later Sunday afternoon, Gordon tweeted a video of the people standing outside of the chapel worshipping the Lord.
"Lord, let the fire of your Spirit fall like latter rain." Don't be a spectator, God change me! God is doing "A deep work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts and lives to prepare us for what is ahead." #asburyrevival #asburyawakening" he wrote.

The number of people wanting to participate in the revival even caused the university to expand its worship services to five overflow buildings.
Wilmore City officials decided to reroute traffic due to the flood of people descending on the small town to experience the revival.
Already Spreading to Other Campuses
Numerous reports reveal the Holy Spirit has ignited several other flames that are now burning brightly at other universities and colleges around the country, bypassing denominational boundaries.
It first spread to Lee University, a school with Pentecostal roots in Tennessee. But students at Baptist schools like Cedarville and Samford Universities have also been experiencing the power of God.
Over the weekend, there were reports the Holy Spirit-led revival was still going strong at Samford, a private Christian school located on the outskirts of Birmingham, Alabama.
"Students are in Reid Chapel (Samford University) in complete awe of God. Praying, worshipping, reading Scripture." - Kevin Blackwell.
Revival is spreading," Greg Gordon tweeted along with a video of students worshipping in the university chapel.
Meanwhile, early reports are coming in that students at Baylor University are also seeking God for revival:
