Already over 350 delegates have registered to attend from 10 countries.

The conference has been planned by Canadian Christian organisation www.sermonindex.net, a ministry which sets out to promote genuine Christian revival, in conjunction with local group Inverclyde Christian Initiative and a large number of acclaimed national and international speakers will speak at the conference including:-

Carter Conlon - Pastor Carter Conlon joined Pastor David Wilkerson at Times Square Church in 1994, and he has been serving as senior pastor since 2001. In addition to ministering at Times Square Church, the Lord has burdened Pastor Carter to reach out to the spiritually needy around the world.

For the last seventeen years he has been Principal of The Faith Mission Bible College in Edinburgh, Scotland. He emphasises a life of total commitment and holy living in the power of the Holy Spirit, and challenges men and women to seek God in the interests of revival.

Speaking from Canada, Greg Gordon of sermonindex said, 'Will God send another great awakening? Can revival still change nations? There are over 10,000 conferences that happen every year. This 'Revival Conference' is not to be just another conference but a honest, sincere, earnest plea for the desperate need of revival across the nations. The event will be a simple, apostolic, yearning for a genuine biblical revival in our day, hosted by the ministry of sermonindex.net and is a interdenominational event'.

Fraser Donaldson of the Inverclyde Christian Initiative added, 'For some time now we have been meeting together on a regular basis to seek revival in Inverclyde and beyond. In addition, over the years, many local churches have been praying for God to bring revival here. We believe that this event could be a very significant one in bringing about a Christian awakening on a scale not seen in our land for years. So many people are looking for answers these days, days in which traditional and God given values are being eroded at great speed, and we are asking God through this conference to let His presence be known in this part of Scotland in great power, power which brings about great changes in peoples' lives and their well being.'
