Author and speaker Jennie Allen has witnessed some of the most powerful revival moments over the past year.

Allen helped hundreds of young people get spontaneously baptized at Auburn University in Alabama last fall—something she recently spoke about with CBN News during a conversation surrounding her new book, “Untangle Your Emotions: Naming What You Feel and Knowing What to Do About It.”

“It was [a] pretty incredible night, and we didn’t plan it,” she said, noting that she had a “sense of the Spirit…moving” after speaking. “I get off the stage, and [a pastor] walked up to me and said … ‘This girl just texted me and said, ‘I want to be baptized tonight.'”

Allen said she asked where they could go nearby to find a place to offer that baptism. At first, they considered a pool, but they wanted to “think bigger.”

“He said, ‘There’s a lake down the street, but it’s like a half-mile away, a mile away,'” she recalled. I said, ‘Do you think they would come?’ And he said, ‘Well, we can try.’

As worship was going, Allen got on the stage again and asked the crowd if anyone wanted to be baptized. As dozens of hands went up, Allen told everyone they would head down to the lake to do the baptisms.

And that moment sparked a massive response.

“Everybody came,” she said. “They picked up people on their way. There were 6,000 people on there, and I mean, it was just wrapping the entire lake, and it’s a pretty big lake. It was wild.”

Baptisms continued until midnight, with the young people sharing their passion for the Lord.

“It was amazing,” Allen said. “And hearing the kids … every single kid said something different, but one of the things they said consistently was … ‘I want to be clean. I want to be clean.'”

She continued, “I just think that’s their longing.”
