Regarded by many as a gifted communicator, DA Horton, pastor of Reach Fellowship in North Long Beach, California, will lead Louisiana College's campus revival March 6-8.
"From a street corner rapper to seminary, DA has moved on to be a capable pastor and engaging author who addresses the issues of our day biblically and with conviction," said LC President Dr. Rick Brewer. "We are blessed and honored to have someone of his calibre on our campus. DA is thoroughly prepared academically, spiritually, and theologically. He has unique communication skills and a passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are praying for DA and our LC family, as we also pray that God will light the fires of revival on this campus."
Revival services will be held in Martin Performing Arts Center and will begin promptly at 11 a.m. Church groups and the general public are encouraged to attend.
