Spring Revival

Each evening, Sunday, March 13th - Wednesday, March 16th, at 7pm, and 11am Sunday morning, March 13th, Derek Yan will be sharing gospel messages with us.  "Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven..." Psalm 85:6-11
Yan, our speaker, was born and grew up in Hong Kong, the oldest of four children.

In August of 1991, Derek came to the United States as an exchange student and gave his life to Christ on March 21, 1992. Derek committed his life to pastoral ministry in March 1996 while studying at Louisiana Tech University. God has formed in his heart a passion for holiness in His church, for training and equipping the saints, and for all nations to know God.

Derek and his wife Laura served 10 years in college ministry and church planting with the North American Mission Board in Seattle. God moved them back to Texas to serve at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fall 2011.
