Fall revival received well


Gabe Norris

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – University of the Cumberlands hosted it’s biannual revival Oct. 23 through Oct. 26. Held in the Gatliff Chapel, this series of worship services energized the campus community while presenting the Gospel to students who normally would not go to a church service.

“I think that the students received well the messages they heard – especially the upperclassman convocation,” said Dean Whitaker, Cumberlands’ Campus Minister.

The theme for the week was Building Bridges. “The idea of Building Bridges was about both the gaps between segments of our campus as well as the gap between those who don't know Christ and those who do,” said Whitaker.

The speaker, Gabe Norris, has had the opportunity to teach, speak and preach to a wide variety of age groups all across the country. He has also been involved in camp ministry for nine years and is currently a camp coordinator for LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention.

The worship leader for the services, Jason Eskridge, is an accomplished studio musician in Nashville, and has also traveled, opening or singing backup for Lyle Lovett, Nicole C. Mullen, eLi, Micah Dalton and Grits.
