Revivus Thanks You!

2014-Thank-YouThe entire staff at Revivus Ministries would like to thank everyone who helped make the 5th Year Anniversary Summer Event the most successful event to date. We thank our headliners, Britt Nicole, Hawk Nelson, and Seventh Day Slumber. Many thanks to all of our sponsors who helped make this event possible! We thank all of the volunteers who helped over the two days it took to setup and run this event. We’d also like to thank all of the vendors and contracted companies who worked so tirelessly to make this event a special and great experience for all in attendance. And lastly we’d like to thank all in attendance. Our official attendance was 4000 people, a record-breaking number for Revivus. Many came to the Lord, re-dedicated their lives and/or inquired about getting help with their addiction struggles on this day, and that is what this day is all about! All in all, it was a great day and we can’t wait to see you all again next year! #revivus2014
