2 Reasons You Need Check Out Code Orange Revival

The past two nights, Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC has been seeing God move in their Code Orange Revival. Code Orange Revival is a twelve night revival put on by Steven Furtick and his church Elevation. It is simply amazing at what is happening there! They are streaming the services live for anyone to watch. People are watching from all over the world and with just two night in the stories that are coming out of this revival are breathtaking.

I personally believe that this could be the start of the next great revival. With the technology we have today and the ability to stream a revival that is taking place in one area to the rest of the world, joining millions of people together in prayer and sitting under sound preaching, this could be the way the next great revival takes place. I am sure there are people out there that don’t like Elevation or Furtick because of silly “preferences” they can’t let go, but when God is on the move like He is in this revival it’s time to drop our preferences and get in on what God is doing! Here are two reasons you need to be a part of Code Orange Revival either live in Charlotte or online from wherever you are.

1. It’s a real move of God. Honestly, as believers, shouldn’t we want to get in on anything that is a real move of God? I have committed to be  a part of this revival online because I believe God is in it and if He is in it, I need it! I desperately need God to move in my life and I am excited about being part of something like this. If you don’t believe me or believe the magnitude of this revival, here are some amazing facts.

The hash tag #codeorangerevival was the number one trending topic on Twitter the first day and has been a top trending topic since.

People are tuning in from all over the world via live stream and TV stations that are showing it. 

People of flying and driving into Charlotte from all over the world just to be a part of this revival live. Last night two men flew from Seattle because they wanted to be a part of it!

People are camping out and getting to the Elevation campus throughout the day just to get a seat inside.

This is not your typical revival. This is a move of God! Wherever you are, tune in on TV or watch the live stream, do whatever you need to do to be a part of this move of God. I have already been blessed, challenged, convicted, and changed by the first two nights!

2. Good Biblical Preaching. This is the part that makes this revival so amazing. Furtick managed to bring in some of the best speakers from around the country to share God’s Word. Here is the line up: Craig Groeschel, Jentezen Franklin, Matt Chandler, Christine Caine, Ed YoungIsrael Houghton, Perry Noble, Stovall Weems, Kevin Gerald, T.D. Jakes, and James MacDonald. The moment some people read this list they will write off this revival because they don’t agree with some of the speakers. I personally do not agree with all of them, but that is not a reason to not be a part of this move of God. There comes a time when we need to drop our preferences and opinions so we can hear God speak. So far the preaching has been the focus and center of this revival. I believe that is Furtick’s heart and I am encouraged by his passion to make God’s Word the center of this revival.

  1. Austin,

    I appreciate your blog and your desire to see Christ proclaimed. I also appreciate your desire for revival.

    One quick thing, please understand that there those of us who disagree with Furtick and his ministry for reasons based on much more than “silly ‘preferences.'” Chandler’s sermon at Code Orange gets to the heart of the difference (Chandler’s presence was definitely encouraging). There are differences in theological emphases and philosophy. I’m not trying to discourage you or disparage Furtick’s ministry (I joy that the Gospel is preached there) – just asking that you represent those who disagree with you about Furtick accurately.

    1. Bolin,

      Thanks for taking the time to read my post and leave a comment. I understand what you are saying and I am somewhat wishing I would have not posted this blog post. As I have been watching the Code Orange Revival, I am seeing a few things that I am disagreeing with. That mainly being some of the speakers Furtick is bringing in. I wish I would have not been so strong on point #2 on this blog because as I research the speakers more I see they are clearly not the same with some major Doctrinal issues. Even with that being said, I do not want to just respond by taking this post down. I said what I said and overall, as you said, I rejoice that Christ is being preached at Code Orange. I learned a lesson from this post: think before you blog.

      Thanks again for the comment and helping me think through this some more. Hope your doing well.


      1. Austin,

        Thanks so much for your humble response (humble responses to criticism are few and far between). Looking forward to seeing you in May.

  2. Bolin,

    Thanks, I appreciate it. I’m excited to be back in May and see you as well!

    See you then,
