Life Action Recap

Posted by on Nov 20, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

If you have been following my Twitter or Facebook account, you know that our church hosted a Life Action 8-Day Summit Revival.  This involved our church hosting 26 people from their ministry-base of Niles, MI and brought 8 days of passion, Biblical-teaching, edification to our church.

The Life Action experience is like no other revival our church has ever had.   The intentionality of the Life Action ministry is unbelievable. Every service and invitation time had a specific strategy in mind and was well thought out!  I walked away from this meeting think, “I understand why the New Testament church met daily.”  What an incredible impact this team had on our church and my family personally!

If you are a pastor, I would highly encourage you to investigate the Life Action ministry and schedule a revival with them (  The ministry offers 4-day, 8-day, and 15-day revival settings.  I would encourage you to begin with a 4-day Thirst Revival.  The team of students stay in the homes of your congregation and the 6 staff members stay on your church property in their travel trailers.  The services last about 2 hours each night.  The team does EVERYTHING:  The preaching, the children’s services, and the teen services.  The only thing the church is responsible for in the way of church services is the nursery and toddler nursery.

You may be thinking 2 things at this point:  I could never get my people to stay 2 hours for a revival service and I could NEVER get our people to host college age students in their homes.  Housing the students in the biggest blessing.  These young people love God and immerse themselves into the home in which they are staying.  All comments have not only been positive, but each host family did not want them to leave.  What a blessing it was for Kim and I to personally host 2 young men in our own home and the impact they had on us and our only son that is left in our home!

As far as the length, it is the quickest 2 hours each night I’ve ever experienced in a service.  At the conclusion of the meeting our people were tired, but they were desiring more.  What a great thing to end a revival with your people wishing it would last longer!

If you want a lasting impact for your church, I would challenge any pastor to contact Life Action and inquire about having a team at your church.  If I can answer any questions for you, I would be glad to help.  Feel free to contact me at or at our church at (252) 522-2451  ext. 225.

May God bless you and I pray that each of you have a wonderful  & Happy Thanksgiving!

THE BROKEN LIFE from Steve Canfield


  • You will not meet God in revival until you first meet Him in brokenness.
  • Brokenness is not an emotion.  It is an act of the will.
  • Brokenness is a humble and obedient response to the conviction of the God’s Spirit.  When we are broken, the very life of God flows from us and affects those around us.
  • Most people have become comfortable with a certain level of sin in our lives.
  • There is no brokenness where there is no repentance.
  • God is serious about sin!  But He is just as serious about forgiveness.

Tweetables from Life Action Revival Evangelist Steve Canfiled

  • You will never embrace the will of God until you understand the ways of God.
  • Apply in the dark what you learn in the light.
  • There is never panic in heaven, just plans.
  • Nothing ever just “occurred” to God.
  • We see God as a BIG God of creation & a “midget God” of everyday life.
