An evangelical service in Wilmore, Kentucky, has been celebrating non-stop for 10 days in what many of its participants call a “revival.”

The event is held at Asbury University, a small Christian university, and has seen participants fly in from all over the country to take part in its 10th consecutive day of worship.

The movement began after students refused to leave after a chapel service last Wednesday, and since then the services have grown to fill the school chapel with worshipers from across the country. according to christianity today.

The “Asbury Revival,” as it has been called, echoes a worship event that took place decades ago.

A revival broke out at the same university in 1970 at the Hughes Auditorium. The service began inside the campus chapel before more and more students arrived to worship, pray, and sing over the course of 144 consecutive hours.

In evangelical Protestant Christianity, a “revival” is a sudden and enthusiastic restoration of religious vigor in a larger church, town, or geographic region.

Evangelical Christians view revivals as a reconnection with the divine after a period of spiritual dryness.

The Asbury revival is having cascading effects as congregations elsewhere in the United States join in marathon worship.
