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.

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!
A Holy-Spirit-led change in the Catholic Schools
This is a MUST see documentary in EVERY Catholic School to bring revival of faith to kids whose faith is still growing and weak.
Very inspirational and hopeful documentary
My husband and I watched the video the other day. I have been exposed to Encounter and Global Awakening, he has not. I have witnessed the healing and evangelization in person. So his take on it was important to me. He was impressed! It captured the students doubtfulness in God in the beginning of the video and their elation after He showed up! I am looking forward to sharing this with our Catholic High School.
This was really beautiful in so many ways but in particular that it helped to transform the hearts of a generation that has grow away from the wonder of God!
That the participants cried in retelling their stories was so much a movement of heart and soul and only served to lend really authenticity to their experiences. It was so inspirational. I had to watch it a couple of times just to let it settle in.
All youth and people that work with use should see this.
This was well done. It shows in a real and tangible way the healing powers of Jesus through our hands.
