Law enforcement in Louisville, KY, and the surrounding area are struggling to address a rise in violent crimes. Meanwhile area pastors and church leaders have launched a week-long event seeking a spiritual solution to the crisis.

Billed as “Revival for Survival,” the event will be held every evening at Philippian Baptist Church beginning Monday, October 30th.

A church official told WHAS 11, “There’s been meeting after meeting after meeting – year after year after year. People say we’ve got to make a difference. We’re in day and age in which this is not only affecting the adults but this is affecting our children.”

A diverse group of local pastors and church leaders has been invited to speak at the event. Philippian Baptist Church is located at 407 S. 19th St., Louisville, KY 40203. The pastor can be reached at pastorshemwell@gmail.com.
