'A Sweet Move of God': Filmmaker Alex Kendrick Details First-Hand Experience at Lee University Revival

Christian filmmaker and actor Alex Kendrick recently detailed what he experienced during a revival at Lee University, a Christian college in Cleveland, Tennessee.

Kendrick, who made faith-based films War Room, Overcomer, Courageous and Fireproof, told CBN's Faithwire that he recently visited Lee University, where his three children attend.

"I noticed no one was orchestrating anything," he said. "No one was upfront with any agenda. You had a variety of people sharing quick testimonies and reading Scripture from various points in the room. Someone would stand up and start reading a Psalm or a passage from one of the Gospels, and everyone would agree."

"Then someone else would randomly start singing a hymn, a worship song, a praise, and then the group would join in," Kendrick continued.

Kendrick and his family were in the chapel for two hours. What he experienced, he said, impacted him personally.

"It was just a sweet move of God," he added. "It was obvious to me that the room was multiple denominations."

The filmmaker also shared a story of how one woman was healed of deafness during the revival.

"[One woman] said, 'We had a group praying over her, and then her ears opened up,' and I just was like, 'Wow,'" Kendrick recalled.

Another woman's knee was reportedly healed.

While some have questioned the authenticity of the recent revivals -- which first started at Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky, earlier this month -- Kendrick cautioned against "putting God in a box" when it comes to spiritual outpourings.

According to CBN News, Kendrick shared that college students shared how God was working on their hearts through the outpourings at Lee University and Asbury University.

"I see people coming clean before the Lord," he said. "When I see conviction and people's desire go up to be right with the Lord, the Spirit is at work, and so that's what we have to pray for."
