Preparing for a great end-time harvest

Finney Revival

In the early 1800's the State of New York was ablaze with one of the greatest revival that ever took place American soil.


What were the villages and churches

like before the revival?


What happened during the revival?


Whatever  happened to those

churches after the revival?


Would you like to see what those

Full Finney Tour (2 days)

August 11-12

August 21-22

October 9-10

I spent almost 25 years, on and off, studying about Charles Finney and his co-laborer, Daniel Nash. I was able to visit the places where they had been born and buried, and most of the significant places in between. In the process I learned about revivals and reforms, and the men God chose to use in this remarkable way.

This is something new we are just starting. It can be done in a day.

Revival Resources

Study Courses Available

This study course includes a study about what the Bible says about revival, with examples of how it came about. It also contains photographs, drone shots, interviews, and parts of my research I was not able to put in the books. I think this will be the best value for your money.

Revival Books

Both Finding Finney and Finding Father Nash books are available in print or as eBooks. 

Finney Tour

About Penn

It has been almost twenty-five years since I first stepped out on a fine spring morning to retrace the footsteps of Charles Finney and Daniel Nash. As I did, I unwittingly began the adventure of a lifetime, as the Lord led me to learn more about the places where one of the greatest revivals in American history took place, allowing me to document and preserve what I found for future generations of revival lovers.
