Over 80 Testimonies From Youth Who Attended ‘Jesus Culture 2006’

Almost hate to see July go, it is like we have been lifted to another level! July started with a Youth conference-‘Jesus Culture, Southern California 2006’, hosted at my home church, VCC Laguna Niguel. Bill Johnson and a team from Redding led the conference. Todd Bentley was scheduled to come also, but ran into transportation problems. Most importantly, the Holy Spirit did come and blast the kids and everyone there. During the conference, they sent out the youth in teams to minister in the area. They went to places like WalMart, Target, shopping malls, High Schools, and beaches. If you want to be uplifted and blasted also, read some of the testimonies of what happened! …Many healings, many brought to Christ, many words of knowledge, many kids on fire for the Kingdom…

Since then, we sent out a team to minister with Randy Clark at a conference in Brazil, and right now there is another team of youth ministering for several weeks in Mozambique with Rolland and Heidi Baker. Can’t wait to hear their reports.

Azusa Street Centennial -Recap

There was very little press coverage for the ‘Centennial’ here in So. Cailfornia. The LA Times had one article prior to the conference, and one published on the opening day (4/25). TV coverage was limited to only a short opening day mention. I could not find any reference to the event in the OC Register (A more ‘conservative’ area newspaper). If 6 or so, gay activists happen to picket a church, all the press is there-print, radio, and TV cameras. However, 47,000+ Christians can peacefully fill the Convention Center or Colisium, and it is not news worthy. I kept looking for info. to pass on about the conference–I finally received the following email recapping the event:

Azusa Street Centennial, April 25-29, 2006 -Los Angeles CA.

  • Over 45,000 attendees
  • 113 nations
  • Over 160 workshops and general sessions
  • Over 1300 volunteers
  • 12,000 Los Angeles families impacted with food and the gospel
  • Over a thousand people saved
  • Hundreds received the Holy Spirit
  • Numerous miracles and healings
  • Dynamic worship, timely preaching, wonderful fellowship and supernatural unity!

Praise the Lord for His wonderful blessings during the recent Azusa Street Centennial celebration. The spiritual experience of a lifetime was just that for people from around the world. Not only did we celebrate the Azusa Street revival, we experienced a fresh anointing for our generation.

We are continuing to receive testimonies in our offices of changed lives and miraculous occurrences following the Centennial. Backsliders have returned to God. Young people have made fresh commitments. The sick have been healed and people have even been raised from the point of death. If you have a personal testimony of God touching your life at the Centennial then please share it with us (click here). You can also read other great accounts of God’s blessing.

‘Azusa Street’ -A Local Report

A group of young people from my home church (Vineyard CC-Laguna Niguel, CA) attended the Azusa Street Centennial. They gave a report on Sunday (April 30)Â that the ‘Azusa Street’ is alive and well, and still going. They joined thousands who filled the LA Sports Arena for a special Youth service on Saturday (April 29). The service was attended by kids of every race, coming from thousands of different locations, and representing hundreds of diverse denominations & Churches.

Before entering the Arena, they prayed for a young person on crutches, who was able to carry them in unneeded. At a break time during that day, our young folks report that Revival broke out at a ‘Starbucks’, as they prayed for those waiting in line for coffee. This of coarse, is just one local report that demonstrates that ‘Azusa Street’ continues today-still going strong after 100 years.

AZUSA STREET CENTENNIAL

April 25-29, 2006 Los Angeles, California, USA

This is slated to be an historic conference & Worldwide gathering of Pentecostal/Charismatic believers commemorating and celebrating the centennial anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival. The Azusa Street Revival which began in April 1906, started a major renewal of the Church which continues today and has touched as many as 600 million believers around the World. Most Pentecostal Churches/denominations and many streams of the Charismatic Movement can trace their roots back to Azusa Street.

One of the amazing characteristics of the Azusa Street Revival was the racial mixture and harmony displayed at the meetings. Beginning in April 1906, the Revival continued meeting 24/7 with as many as 1,000 in attendance, and attracting visitors from all around the World. Pastor William Joseph Seymour, the son of former slaves, founded the church, which initially began as a small poor African-American congregation. But soon the Azusa Street Church was filled with seekers from every walk of life, rich, poor and in-between. The Holy Spirit was so strong there, that some folk literally stayed for days-many came to Christ, many were healed, and thousand of lives were changed.

Hundreds of major Christian leaders will be attending the Centennial and more than a hundred thousand are expected to participate.
