EAST ORANGE, NJ – With the spring season soon arriving with its beauty, rebirth and renewal, New Hope Baptist Church of East Orange believes that this is the perfect time to also offer a chance for rejuvenation and revitalization from a spiritual perspective for its members and the community. That’s why the church is hosting a three-night Spring Revival event scheduled for March 20, 21 and 22 at 7:00 p.m. nightly at the church, located at 144 Norman Street in East Orange. 

“Faced with so many things in our society today, Christians need to be encouraged and uplifted to stay and remain focused.”  “Spring Revival provides that opportunity, because it is a time of revitalization, renewal, restoration and recovery – all a part of spiritual refreshing,” explained Rev. Dwight D. Gill, pastor of New Hope Baptist Church of East Orange.

The guest revivalist will be Rev. Jeffrey A. Johnson, Sr., senior pastor of Eastern Star Church in Indianapolis, Indiana.  He accepted his call to ministry at the age of 17 and has served as the Senior Pastor of Eastern Star Church since 1988. Rev. Johnson is not only a brilliant spiritual leader and well-known dynamic speaker, he is also a visionary and an author.  Under his leadership, the “One Church in Three Locations” has grown to over 10,000 members and has planted three churches in Indianapolis as well.
