WELCOME TO THE
INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON REVIVAL
A ministry to ministers is a ministry to multitudes.
--Dr. Stephen Olford
The ministry of ICR was first birthed into the heart of Evangelist Manley Beasley back in the 1980’s. Bro. Manley had a deep passion to see God call men and women to repentance. He personified a life of faith and trust in the Lord Jesus that set the example for all to follow.
When God called Bro. Manley to heaven in 1990, Dr. Bill Stafford took up the mantle and the ministry of ICR has continued on for the glory of God. The Lord only knows how many pastors and leaders have been touched across the globe by the ministry of Bro. Bill and ICR.
ICR makes it possible for pastors and their wives to come to a conference that they otherwise could not afford to attend. Many scholarships for the pastors are provided in full and some are in part depending on the individual need of each pastor.
Today you have an incredible opportunity to help keep these precious men of God on the ministry field and even open up new countries. As Dr. Stephen Olford said, “A ministry to ministers is a ministry to multitudes.” God has opened a great door of opportunity today and ICR would be honored if you would pray about how God could use you to get involved.
In 2002, Pastor Tim Anderson accepted an invitation to the South African Congress from Bro. Bill and the Lord gave Pastor Tim a deep burden for this ministry. Bro. Bill approached him soon afterwards and informed him that God was calling him to find his successor for ICR. After much prayer and fasting, God confirmed in Pastor Tim’s heart that he was to be the next person to lead ICR into the future.
Today, Pastor Tim is having the joy of a lifetime encouraging and instructing pastors in South Africa, South America, Haiti, Canada and the United States about the biblical principles of revival, personal holiness, and the message of Jesus Christ.
