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.

This film made a deep impression on me. I was filled with excitement to see Catholics step out in faith with such boldness. The way the team ministered with total reliance on the Holy Spirt was moving and humbling to me. It has encouraged us to ‘step out’ more in our own ministry. Thank you for your example!

If anyone should doubt the presence of the Spirit in every person, watch. This is not a renewal driven by hierarchy but by everyday Christians. Sinners all, we have many gifts that He has given us and the Holy Spirit only needs to be asked and they come. Healing, seeing, prayer driven miracles. Powerful movie

Honestly loved it! I am praising Jesus because I feel this whole idea is over due in our Catholic Teaching! We have been missing out on the fullness of Jesus’ gifts being fulfilled. Amen

A Game Changer for Catholic Evangelism

Awesome. I’m not sure I have other words to describe the feeling this movie documentary left me with. I remember listening to the intro reaction of the students about their philosophical misgivings about God and Christianity – though they were in a Catholic Church. I thought to myself: ‘these questions could be easily tackled with some good Christian apologetics.’ But nope, the movie didn’t take the apologetic route. It took an unusual path which has left me a bit shaken. I want more of Jesus’ Spirit! More of these experiences in evangelism! This is a game changer for Christian evangelism and Christian discipleship! Absolutely!
I only wish that the documentary would have been longer!

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! ?
