‘Revival for Mission’ is Adventist Leaders’ Year-end Message
Hope Channel, Internet stream to feature Wilson, division presidents
Seventh-day Adventists are being called to pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit through a special series of television programs available via the church’s Hope Channel and over the Internet, leaders of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists said.
The world church's Revival and Reformation initiative is gearing up for several televised events this holiday season, intended to join membership in prayer and seeking spiritual renewal.
One of the programs, “Revival for Mission,” features General Conference president Pastor Ted N.C. Wilson who interviews the presidents from the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s 13 world divisions.

The Revival for Mission is one of several broadcasts, which started airing December 25 with a Christmas sermon and program shown globally on the church's official television network, Hope Channel. They'll culminate in a global day of prayer beginning New Year's Eve.
"We hope to inspire a global movement among church members and leaders to earnestly seek a dynamic spiritual relationship with God," said Brad Thorp, Hope Channel president.
The broadcasts are among a growing number of initiatives launched by the General Conference’s Revival and Reformation Committee and produced in conjunction with Hope Channel. Another initiative asks Adventist membership worldwide to join together each morning at 7 a.m. and evening at 7 p.m. to pray for an outpouring of God's spirit.
