MATEWAN – Nearly 3,000 people attended a revival Saturday evening at the Harless Stadium at Mingo Central High School (MCHS).
The MCHS Prayer Club hosted the event. A revival was organized following a large turn out during a voluntary Prayer Club meeting held at the school.
On April 13, the Restored Youth Ministries posted a widely shared photo on social media stating that 150 MCHS students were saved during the voluntary Prayer Club meeting.
The following day, the Restored Youth Ministries announced that a community youth service would be held at the school’s auditorium.
However, the anticipation of a large crowd prompted organizers to move the venue to the school’s football stadium to better accommodate the crowd. An announcement was made by the Restored Youth Ministries on April 15, concerning the change in event location.
Throughout the last several weeks, photos and videos of students preaching in the hall ways of W.Va. schools have went viral on social media.
In Logan County, a student led revival took place in the school hallway on March 24. An article on the event appeared in The Logan Banner titled, Revival in the halls of Logan. In the article, Martha Sparks states, “Logan High School Junior Skyler Miller drew a sizable group of students who settled on the floor of the school hall and listened to his sermon.”
In the article Skyler Miller explained the event stating, “I had been praying for a long time that Jesus would send me into the hall to preach the gospel because I wanted to be fearless and bold for him just the disciples and Apostle Paul,” Miller said.
“About 20 minutes before I did it, he told me, ‘Today is the day, Skyler. Go be a light and let the broken know who I am,‘“ Miller continued.
