michaeltaitOur ministry friends, The Newsboys, will be at RiseFest. Michael Tait, lead singer for The Newsboys said, “The band and I met Bob (Vander Plaats) in the greenroom of the Huckabee program back in May of 2014 and immediately established a synergy with the If 7:14 initiative and our song, ‘God’s Not Dead’.  We knew from that moment, we needed to assist in any way possible with the If 7:14 revival movement.  We are extremely excited about coming to Iowa again for RiseFest, and to do our part in sparking revival in the hearts of Midwesterners.”

If 7:14

The If 7:14 initiative is an urgent and compelling call for revival based upon 2 Chronicles 7:14, a passage The FAMiLY LEADER believes gives a glimpse of God’s heart and a template for revival. The If 7:14 initiative includes a book by Bob Vander Plaats entitled If 7:14…An Urgent Call for Revival…It’s Time, a prayer initiative asking people to pray every day at 7:14 am and 7:14 pm for revival, and an annual If 7:14 gathering.
