98 Crowds continue at Miss. church, prompting extension of revival

LAUREL, Miss. (BP)– The “Find Me Faithful” crusade at Highland Baptist Church, Laurel, Miss., will continue indefinitely, according to Bart Terry, the church’s associate pastor for education and administration.
The revival began Feb. 1.
Pastor Dennis Sewell previously had announced that the evangelistic services would cease at the end of March. However, due to large crowds continuing to attend and the number of decisions being registered, the decision was made to continue. As of March 17, there have been 917 professions of faith and the church had baptized 381 people, according to Terry.
Services are Sunday through Friday at 7 p.m.
