REVIVE is a follow-up to the groundbreaking documentary Fearless. Following director Maura Smith, this film documents the crisis of faith among Catholic high school students and investigates what impact signs, wonders and healings could have in Catholic education. REVIVE does something unprecedented: it captures and documents a live healing evangelization event at a major Catholic high school. The event, led by Encounter Ministries, was filmed along with extensive follow-up investigation and interviews with students and faculty. The results of this event were nothing less than an overwhelming display of God’s supernatural power and love invading the school community, leaving it radically changed.
As Catholic high schools seek to educate in a culture of more pervasive doubt and skepticism than ever before, this film makes a powerful case and provides practical strategies for Catholic schools to partner with Jesus in preaching the Gospel while giving the Holy Spirit an opportunity to confirm that message through supernatural signs.

An instrument of Hope!
This video is powerful, it has an effect on people from a wide range of faith backgrounds – or no faith background at all. It is compelling because it’s relatable to a wide audience and shows what The Lord is doing in our midst today. I keep finding more and more ways to share this and distribute copies of Revive. I think I need to order a case of them at this point. Bravo to the team who put this together, and double bravo to Encounter Ministries! It is beginning to bear much fruit here in Maryland and in the greater Washington D.C. area. I have a heart bursting with love for all of you and what you’re doing! 😊
Very good. Showing it to the kids (grade school). They want more of God. So do I out here. Native Americans “get” the mystical aspect of reality. This is out on the reservation, Catholic school.
I think the guys did great. However, I would sincerely have liked to see women leaders on stage leading the students, as well. I hope that we can speak better to the minorities in our culture by having more Catholic Native Americans, Hispanic, Asian, African-American living out the power of the Holy Spirit.
Please do not share my email address or quote this to the public. Thanks so much for all you are doing.
I found the documentary Revive very interesting. The faith and miracles displayed energizes me with the Holy Spirit, it made me want to go and pass the good news and lay hands on people. It did renew my faith. I wish we had a group here In Kansas City like Encounter Ministries.
Society has been asking so much of our children as they grow up in areas of academics, sports, social events, etc. Everything except in the area of faith in God. Add to this the social chaos going on in broken families and sexual confusion and it is understandable why there is an increase in anxiety and depression in our young. By not helping them grow in their relationship with God, we have left them unmoored. This documentary shows the hunger and openness high school kids have when they encounter the Love and Power of God. My prayer that this will happen in all of our Catholic high schools! Come, Holy Spirit, and renew the face of the earth!
The Holy Spirit is on the Move!
The tangible manifestation of God’s love for us made visible in the healings that were documented in Revive is a powerful witness to the Holy Spirit’s heart for renewed evangelization! It was especially precious to see the responses of so many young people- Catholic high school students- to God’s love made visible in their midst. Equally heartwarming was the witness of seasoned teachers who experienced healing through prayer. It was particularly helpful to hear the followup interviews done months after the healing encounter, and to hear testimonies to a call to deeper faith in those who had witnessed the Lord’s healing. I highly recommend sharing this documentary with anyone who has begun to doubt, whose faith needs a boost, or who thinks that healing in the name of Jesus was a gift restricted to His immediate apostles. Christ tells us that “these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will. . . lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16: 17-18). The Holy Spirt is on the move and is calling us to renewed mission!
