Baylor Campus to Take Time Out to "Breathe"

April 7, 2006

by Angie Best

Breathe, a campus-wide revival held in the spring of every year, will take place at 8 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, April 10-12, in Waco Hall. The event is sponsored by the Baylor Baptist Student Ministries.

This year's three day, all-university worship service will feature speaker Jon Randles, and leading worship will be the Justin Cofield Band.

Founded in 1999 in Lubbock, the Justin Cofield Band features Justin Cofield on vocals and guitar; James Law on bass guitar; Kyle Lent on guitars, vocals and rhodes; and Aaron Cauble on drums.

"One of our most powerful tools for sharing Christ is our lifestyle," Cofield says on the band's Web site. "I pray that people understand that worship is not a song or a feeling, but a way of life that God calls us to."

The founder and president of the Jon Randles Evangelistic Association (JREA) and Randles Inc. located in Lubbock, featured speaker Randles is involved in evangelism, church growth conferences and evaluations, discipleship, and student ministry and missionary endeavors world wide through speaking engagements, books and tapes.

Prior to forming JREA, Randles served as pastor of Indiana Avenue Baptist Church in Lubbock, where during his tenure from 1988-1993 the church experienced tremendous growth and was deemed one of the nation's fastest growing congregations.

Randles received his bachelor' degree at Hardin-Simmons University and his master's of divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has taught periodically as an adjunct instructor of Old and New Testament history at the Lubbockcenter of Wayland University since 1991, and currently speaks in more than 100 churches and 50 school districts a year coast to coast.
