The northeastern United States, land of Dwight L. Moody and Charles Grandison Finney, was once a place of great revival. Local churches and their pastors passionately served the Lord and His purposes. Schools were built for the training of godly ministers and leaders. While some revival fires still burn, others are smoldering; some fires have died. Hosting "Keep the Fire Burning" conferences gives Northside Baptist Church, Liverpool, New York, an opportunity to be a catalyst for revival and renewal in the Northeast from the country to the cities. An annual pastors' and leaders' conference will be a tool and launching pad for renewal of faith, inspiration, revival and encouragement. This project will include a combination of face-to-face interviews, phone interviews and written interviews with thirty-five pastors throughout the northeast. The goal is for multiplied ministry effectiveness for the glory of God and the sake of souls.
