Three Churches Collaborate for 'Storms of Life' Revival

April 15, 2018 | Carl Butler Jr.

The Wasilla (Alaska) Church conducted a three-church revival Nov. 4–8, 2017, as an evangelistic outreach to the local community. With support from the Palmer and Anchorage Samoan churches, the revival tackled some of the major setbacks in life because of a world marred by sin and provided a guideline to find God amidst the elements.

Recognizing the spiritual reward that would flow through the congregation during such a revival, Carl Butler Jr., Wasilla Church pastor, enlisted the assistance of the Palmer Church pastor, Jeff Coleman. As the two worked with the revival team to plan the event, the musical talents of the Anchorage Samoan Church were brought on board to lead song service and provide musical selections throughout the weeklong event.

Opening night of the revival was such a blessing that members struggled to find seating within the main sanctuary with some having to relocate to the overflow area. Nightly song service led by the Samoan praise team was the highlight event for most visitors. They expressed their amazement and feeling of deep connection to our Almighty Savior through the power of song.

Every night of the five-day Fighting the Storms of Life revival featured a different speaker, each offering a wide range of spiritual knowledge to those who attended. God used this opportunity to reach both visitors and members, shaking up their spiritual walks and challenging them to let God take control through the storms of life.
