‘Unlike Anything I’ve Ever Seen in My Life’—Asbury’s President Shares Ending of Continuous Worship Service

“We are not the keepers of this movement. We are hearing amazing stories across the world,” Brown shared. “People are hungry, and they’re hungry for something more. I think of Matthew 5:6 from Jesus’ most famous sermon, where he says, ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.’ In other words, blessed are those who have a hunger for right relationship with God and a right relationship with others. They are the ones who leave the table satisfied.”

Brown said they looking to other schools, churches, and ministry communities to be co-commissioners in the movement God started in Hughes Auditorium at Asbury University.

“My heart is for this young generation, and whatever happens from here, our deep desire is to see a life transforming renewal of our younger generations to faithfully serve their communities, their schools, their churches, and their professions,” Brown said, expressing that he wants to “see them go into the difficult and dark places in the world and to be light.”

Concluded his video announcement, Brown clarified that although the university is ending the worship service this Thursday evening (Feb. 23)—the Collegiate Day of Prayer—this is not the “conclusion to hungry hearts being stirred and responding by seeking Jesus Christ.”

Encouraging people to pray for the students, young adults, the church, and for changed lives, Brown asked, “Please pray that what is happening here moves across states and countries and continents for the fullest realization of our humanity, for the edification of our neighbor, for the common good, and for the glory of God. When the world sees our efforts and our spirit, may they see Christ. Thank you so much. God bless you all.”

The Collegiate Day of Prayer, which was scheduled to take place at Asbury University before their historic Feb. 8 chapel service, is celebrating their 200th year. Francis Chan, Rick Warren, and Allen Hood will be live at the university. The event will be simulcasted throughout the world.
