In 1984, President Ronald Reagan declared that the third Sunday

would be a day to recognize the sanctity of human
life.

The third Sunday was chosen to coincide with the anniversary

of the day in 1973 when the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on
Creswell
Roe
v. Wade declared abortion to be a constitutionally protected
right.

President Reagan saw abortion as the greatest injustice of his

SAVE THIS NATION REVIVALS
Southwestern Seminary is eagerly preparing for the 2015
Revive This Nation Program (RTN). Revive This Nation
at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary is an
historic program aimed at serving Southern Baptists as a
catalyst for revival. For more than fifty years, students
and professors have spent Spring Break preaching
revivals and ministering in churches across this nation.
God has blessed this effort with more than 14,000 people
coming to know Christ. From street corners and front
doors to pulpits and pews, we continue to have one aim:
preaching the Word and reaching the world. We
prayerfully anticipate God’s continued faithfulness in
reaching the lost as our students and faculty prepare to
preach revivals across the country on March 8-11, 2015.
Here are some of the general features of RTN:
 Southwestern Seminary recruits churches to
hold revival meetings in the spring and pays for the
roundtrip transportation of preachers.
 The host church provides meals, lodging and
local transportation for the student while there.
 Revival meetings generally begin on Sunday
morning and end on Wednesday evening March 811 (alternative formats are available).
 The preacher partners with the pastor to engage
lost people in evangelism during the week.
Our ambition is to partner with as many local
churches as possible in proclaiming the gospel to
the lost. We would be honored if you would assist
us in our goal by informing the local associations
and churches in your area of this opportunity. In
order for a church to sign up, they will need to
fill out the Church Application Form, available
online at http://www.swbts.edu/rtn.
For any further information or any assistance,
please contact the Church Ministry Office at
Southwestern at 817-923-1921, ext. 6330, or by email at [email protected]
