NEW HAVEN, Conn., Feb. 5 /Christian Newswire/ -- God is stirring on campuses across the nation, but leaders need to be equipped to lead these movements. That's why Collegiate Impact, a ministry of Life Action Ministries, is helping bring "The Institute of Campus Revival and Awakening" to Yale University June 20-27.

Timothy Dwight, grandson of Jonathan Edwards, leader of the "First Great Awakening," was president of Yale when God brought a deep, broad, sweeping move of the Holy Spirit to the campus during the "Second Great Awakening."
"We are so excited about this year's institute, because it helps campus ministry leaders around the country prepare for the next great move of God on college campuses," said Dave Warn, founder and director of Collegiate Impact.
The second annual event, which also is sponsored by Campus Renewal Ministries and The Center for World Revival and Awakening, is designed for full-time leaders of denominational and parachurch campus ministries, such as Campus Crusade for Christ, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, The Navigators and Chi Alpha. Campus ministry leaders of Christian universities and colleges will also be among attendees. The institute is limited to 100 participants.
"The week-long institute will teach campus ministry leaders about the biblical and historical aspects of revival and awakening in an atmosphere that will allow their hearts and minds to be revived," said Warn. "We will focus on spiritual breakthroughs of the past, as well as current issues, to prepare and equip participants for campus transformation in the present and future."
New additions this year include breakout sessions for national and regional campus ministry leaders, local leaders that minister on secular universities, leaders of church-based campus ministries, leaders at Christian colleges, seminary leaders, and professors and faculty. In addition, an alumni track has been added for those who participated in the first institute last year. The institute also will enable attendees to network with other campus ministries and leaders, and spend time seeking God for another Great Awakening in the world of higher education.
Faculty and presenters will include Dr. J.P. Moreland, Dr. Walter Kaiser, Jaeson Ma, Rhonda Hughey and "The Healing the Land" team, which led a wide-spread revival in the Fiji Islands that transformed more than 250 villages.
Because of generous donations, the institute price is only $445. Additional expenses include $695 for meals and housing (seven nights/eight days). Partial scholarships are available. Registration and scholarship applications can be made on-line at www.campusrevivalinstitute.com or by calling 800-321-1538, ext. 2018.
The mission of Collegiate Impact, which is based in Buchanan, Mich., is to see the lives of college students ignited for Jesus Christ, resulting in entire campuses being transformed for the glory of God.
