Longing for Revival

Longing for Revival: From Holy Discontent to Breakthrough Faith
(IVP, 2020)

WHO: James Choung, vice president of strategy and innovation for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA; and Ryan Pfeiffer, Next Gen pastor at North Coast Calvary Chapel.

THEY SAY: “We don’t long for [revival] because it’s extraordinary or special. It’s actually the way things should be.”

THE BIG IDEA: This book provides a model of revival leadership as well as examines what revival looks like, how Christians can anticipate it, and how they can experience it.

Part 1, “Defining Revival,” presents a definition of revival and identifies a core revival process, Breakthough U Curve. Part 2, “Experiencing Revival,” guides readers through revival practices. In Part 3, “Leading Revival,” the authors highlight four key revival leadership concepts.

“If revival leadership is the kind of ministry leadership needed before and during revival, what would it look like to exercise revival leadership in this day and age?”
