We want to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who was involved in Awaken Covington, especially to those who volunteered their time and energy and to those who faithfully prayed for the event, start to end. The good news is Awaken Covington is not finished. Our hope had been to conclude the event with an outdoor worship service at the Covington Trailhead. We still hope to organize this service. Our plan is to host a one night Awaken event this fall in downtown Covington, once the weather cools off. Stay tuned for updates.


The Need

Christians in Covington need to awaken to the truths that we live on a mission field, that the Great Commission is our standing orders for today, that the kingdom of God is bigger than any single congregation, and that the church on the Northshore is in desperate need of revival.

‘And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed’ (Romans 13:11)

Who Is Organizing This?

This event is being organized by three friends who decided to meet at St. John’s Coffee Shop in order to talk about the spiritual needs of Covington: Seth Stiles (Assistant Pastor, Northshore Bible Church), Joe Barnard (Cross Training Ministries), and Denny Johnson (member of Christ Community Church). We have no agenda other than to see Christ glorified and His people revived.

‘Revival begins by Christians getting right first and then spills over into the world’ (Charles Spurgeon)
