Houghton University to host Rooted: three-day spiritual revival services

A three-day gathering of spiritual revival services will be held in mid-September at Houghton University.

The series of four campus sessions, Rooted, are free and open to the public and will be held in the John and Charles Wesley Chapel at 7PM Thursday and Friday, September 15 and 16, at 11:10AM Friday as the regular campus chapel service, and 1PM Saturday, September 17.

The educational institution has experienced at least two recorded revivals in February 1942 and October 1951 which not only impacted college students and staff members but spread to area communities and as far away as Buffalo and Philadelphia.

Speaker for the services will be Pierre duPlessis, lead pastor at The Father’s House in Rochester, who is considered a “pioneering leader with a dream of an authentic, adventurous community of Christ followers, who would engage disconnected people with the true message and genuine expression of God’s love.”

He is described by the University as “a visionary, a worshiper, fun to be around, totally committed to the cause, and passionate about his family. His no-holds-barred communication style brings relevance to every message.”

Jen and Taylor Wilding, 2014 Houghton graduates, will lead the praise and worship singing throughout the three days.

Taylor Wilding currently is discipleship director and campus worship leader at Trinity Wesleyan Church in Indiana after having served previously as the worship director at Victory Highway Wesleyan Church in Painted Post, N.Y.
