San Antonio Engage XP

by

Engage XP at First Baptist Church in Universal City wrapped up tonight around 8:30 or 9:00. Photos from throughout the day can be seen on Flickr by clicking here. The event went out with a bang.

I’m estimating 500 people attended the night’s worship service (when I get the official number, I’ll post it). Jon Randles preached about the importance of letting Christ fill your life and transform it. There was an almost palpable building of momentum as Randles spoke. Something was happening.

And then it broke. Randles issued an invitation, which included a call for people to make first-time professions of faith, rededications to Christ and dedications to evangelism. A spattering of hands went up of people declaring Christ as Lord for the first time. Then more hands went up for people indicating they want to rededicate their lives to Christ.

Finally, Jon asked people who made decisions or wanted to pray at the altar to come forward. Before he was finished, people were coming. Randles was one of the first people praying at the altar. Soon he was joined by a host of others. First one, then two, five, 10, 20, 30. Counselors were praying with people. Friends embraced. Tears poured down some faces. Grown men were on their faces praying for the lost people in their respective communities. People pledged to share their faith more often.

God changed lives tonight. And it was awesome.

    I agree with John. It was awesome.

    It is so exciting to see God stirring Texas Baptists on evangelism. Every time I hear Jon Randles preach I find myself newly stirred.

    We all need to add a fervency to our prayers for the lost and to our prayers for a growing evangelistic commitment among Texas Baptists. Let’s also pray specifically for Jon and others leading this evangelistic revival.

    I wish that I could attend the one in West Texas today but it is at least 6 hour trip. Hopefully these flames will keep on spreading.

    I was exceptionally moved and motivated by John’s message to the crowd at the San Antonio Engage XP in the MORNING session. Will that audio or video be online at some point? Or is it available from the church? I’d LOVE to let my pastor hear that message!

    THank you so much!

    Hi Keith. Good words. I think a lot of people feel exactly like you do. The church recorded the sessions in San Antonio, but later discovered there was a technical issue. I think we’ve all been there before.

    The closest thing we have available is the audio from the Engage conference in Rockwall. It can be found by going here and scanning through the links: https://texasbaptists.wordpress.com/2008/01/29/engage-audio-online/.

    Jon’s message wasn’t exactly the same in Rockwall and San Antonio, but many of the elements were the same. Hopefully that will be helpful for you.
