This year, R.I.O.T. (Revival in our Times) was held at Baptist Park Campground, just outside of Presque Isle, Maine. In addition to the location changing, the venue was unique as well. Due to the size of the crowd, we worshipped together under a tent!
With all of the changes this year, one thing was constant -- we experienced an incredible outpouring of the Holy Ghost!
Tuesday night commenced with record attendance, as Evangelist Andrew Howard delivered the keynote for what would become an incredible God-encounter all week. Every night following, God used Bro. Howard to minister to the issues of both young and old alike. Response in the altars was overwhelming.
Pastor Sam Ham taught each of the three days of our Bible Classes on "Sin: Missing the Mark". What life-changing principles were instilled in our young people each day. By the final day, the Holy Ghost exploded in the house, as we were taught about our Advocate, Jesus Christ the Righteous. What a glorious salvation!
Although the emphasis of R.I.O.T. is unashamedly spiritual in nature, we also have an incredible time of fun, adventure and fellowship. This year was no exception. From Police Dog demonstrations and Fireman Muster competitions to crafts, sports and fireworks -- the events rounded out what was already an incredible week.
Plan on joining us next year from August 20-25, 2019! Stay tuned for the details.
