The Brownsville Revival (also known as the Pensacola Outpouring) was a widely-reported religious phenomenon that began within the Pentecostal movement on Father’s Day June 18, 1995 at Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, Florida. Characteristics of the Brownsville Revival movement, as with other Christian religious revivals, included acts of repentance by parishioners and a call to holiness, said to be inspired by the manifestation of the Holy Spirit. Some of the occurrences in this revival fit the description of moments of “religious ecstasy”. More than four million people are reported to have attended the meetings from its beginnings in 1995 to around 2000. – Wikipedia
