Free This Month: A Revival Resource

This week I am preaching a revival meeting in the low desert of Arizona. (Yes, it is hot. No, it is not a tent meeting!) The pastor has worked diligently to prepare the church and hearts have been very responsive to God’s Word. I have come to realize that the most important days in a revival meeting are not the meeting itself. Instead, they are the days before the meeting. Prepared hearts are more important than prepared sermons. No evangelist brings revival – God Himself revives His people when they get where they can hear Him. Vance Havner used to call this being “in tune with heaven.” For this reason I have come to believe that the prayers of God’s people…

A Family and Ministry Update

As I write these words Tammy and the kids are with me for a conference with young adults in Florida. It has been such a joy to have my entire family traveling with me this month. The Lord has been gracious to allow us to spend some very special days together and to see the Lord work in wonderful ways. Yesterday was sweet as we celebrated Father’s Day “on the road.” I love to see Christ at work in and through our children. The Apostle John said it best when he wrote, “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth” (3 John 4). Thank you for praying for our family. The summer is full…

Some Thoughts On Our Recent Campaign

It is a joy to be home for a couple of days after a busy season of meetings. Just a few days ago we conducted a Go Reach America Campaign in the Tri-Cities region. The Lord blessed in a wonderful way and we give Him the glory for it! As I have had some time to reflect I wanted to share a few things the Lord did in my own life. He always works on both ends – saving souls and teaching us! Here are a few of the truths the Holy Spirit has impressed on my heart… It is a privilege to labor with others for souls. Ecclesiastes 4:9 says, “Two are better than one; because they have a…

A Personal Invitation to CORE 2017

One of Satan’s greatest tools is discouragement. I am afraid that many preachers are so disillusioned with the condition of our nation that they wonder if there is anything they can do to make a difference. This is a strategy of the wicked one. Never has a generation of believers had so much opportunity for the gospel! We must not allow our hope to diminish or our expectation to die. Christ is at work, and we should be too! There is nothing wrong in this world that the gospel cannot fix, and there is nothing missing in churches that revival could not supply! I am very happy to be a part of a special upcoming event, the first ever Conference On Revival…

September Itinerary and a Word from Our Family

God has been so very gracious to us. The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity and change. Thank you for praying for our family as we have relocated back to West Virginia. Times of transition remind you of so many truths. For me, one of those has been that God chose the perfect wife for me! Tammy has been so supportive in every way and has made the transition smooth for our home. Morgan, Lauren, and Grant have started the school year in a new school and are doing very well. When we are not on the road, we are all enjoying the opportunity to be near family again. My dad has pastored the Cranberry Baptist Church…

New Website!

In just three days we will launch the new website for the evangelistic work God has called us to do. Scottpauley.org will be available beginning Monday, February 1, 2016. I am excited about the resources that we will be able to provide on this new platform. Get better acquainted with our family and the burden God has given us for revival. Pictures and regular updates will be posted to the site. Share a special gospel presentation with friends through your social media. A brief video and written gospel message will be available for you to view and share with others. Follow our itinerary for the coming months. Our family would love to see you at one of the meetings very soon.…

Family Devotions and Spiritual Awakenings

“I will get married in a few months.  What advice do you have for me?”  Working with hundreds of college students these are words I have heard many times.  As I heard them again recently my mind filled with so many truths that others have passed on to me and my wife.  Too many to remember.  Too many to relay in one conversation.  But there was one… One truth that seemed to rise above all of the rest.  One lesson that I have had to learn over and over again: families must pray together. Isn’t it funny that we seem to do everything – eat, sleep, play, drive, talk – together.  Everything, except pray.  Yet this is the one thing…

How to Pray for a Special Meeting

Today we begin our annual Baptist Friends Conference at Temple Baptist Church and Crown College.  Pastor Sexton and our precious people love hosting this meeting and seeking to encourage hundreds of friends in the work of world evangelism.  There are always so many people working hard to prepare for a meeting like this.  Yet we have learned that the most important preparation is not physical but spiritual. The greatest preparation is the work that is done in prayer.  Remember, when we pray GOD works!  We always have a 24 hour prayer vigil on the Friday and Saturday before the Conference begins.  For the last several weeks teams of our people have visited in all of our member homes gathering prayer…
