Dear St. Andrew’s family,

Jacqui and I are thrilled to invite you to Revive 24, our annual conference on the Holy Spirit, to be held April 26-27 in the Ministry Center.

The words that Jesus spoke have the power to create what they say. The great invitation that we have from Christ Himself, is to join Him in His ongoing ministry to redeem and restore all things to Himself.

And yet….

We see so many folks living out their faith with little sense of the immediacy of the Lord’s presence, little sense of urgency, and little sense of the Spirit’s power at work in them leading them into faithful and fruitful kingdom exploits.

And so, this invitation to be renewed and revived.

People tell me often that they want to know more of the Lord and more of the Spirit. But how does this happen? Well, we don’t have to wonder. Jesus told the disciples in Acts 1 that signs, wonders, and the power of the Spirit will accompany them as they go…as they join Jesus in His gospel ministry. And, of course, that sets up another challenge, many of us feel inadequate or fearful about the “going” part of the equation. What to do?

Dr. Lori BaseyAbout Our Speaker – Dr. Lori Basey

We’ve invited Dr. Lori Basey to be our speaker this year. Many of you will know her from the Women’s Retreat and a mission trip to No Boundaries International in Oklahoma City.

Lori knows no limits when working with traumatized populations and mobilizing others to respond to devastation. Since 1991, she has specialized in acute psychiatric care, including trauma-informed therapeutic intervention following the Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Building bombing as well as the 9/11 disaster in NYC and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. She is an expert consultant in trauma associated with war, exploitation, and natural disasters.

In 2006, Dr. Basey co-founded No Boundaries International (NBI), a non-profit organization run solely by volunteers in Oklahoma City, OK. As President of NBI, Dr. Basey provides training on trauma-informed care and mobilizes volunteers to help those in the local community, especially those affected by human trafficking.

For the Kingdom,
