The Great Revivals

The one common denominator
is that they were all birthed in prayer.

The Red River Meeting House

James McGready was mightily used by God in the "Second Great Awakening" on the American frontier. It began at this log cabin out in the middle of nowhere,  in a region of the country filled with criminals and fugitives. It not only had a profound effect on the local area of Logan County Kentucky, or the frontier state as a whole, but left its mark on succeeding generations in the states of Tennessee, Georgia, Ohio, Virginia, and the Carolina’s.

Spiritual Revival in Colonial America

 This documentary traces the origins of the Great Awakening and follows its progression throughout the American colonies. Nearly 100 years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, the New England colonists had largely traded the Christian ideals of their forebearers for the gods of material success. But then the Great Awakening swept through New England and the other colonies bringing about a powerful spiritual renewal.
