Cane Ridge Tour



Kentucky Christian University Presents
The Cane Ridge Tour

August 7, 2021 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
$35 includes lunch


One week in 1801 is all it took. Beginning August 6, God induced a revival that shook the world to its core. What was expected to be a typical meeting quickly became a unity revival of over 20,000 people. It was at Cane Ridge that the proclamation of the unification effects of the gospel were accomplished and we are experiencing the effects of it to this day. This was the start of the Restoration Movement, and Kentucky Christian University invites you to celebrate it with us. 


On August 7, 2021, we are hosting a Cane Ridge tour and communion service. Registration and check-in will begin at 8:00 a.m. on the KCU campus. We will provide transportation to Cane Ridge as well as lunch. Dr. Douglas Foster, author of A Life of Alexander Campbell, and leading scholar of Restoration Movement Church History, will give a presentation of what took place at Cane Ridge. Jerry Harris, pastor of The Crossing and publisher of the Christian Standard will be leading a devotional for all in attendance. The tour will end with a communion service led by Bob Russell, pastor, author, and teacher. Consider this your invitation to celebrate the roots of the Restoration Movement and explore how you can partner with us as we prepare leaders for the future of the movement. Tickets are now available online for $35. Get yours today as tickets are limited. For questions please contact Megan Rawlings through email at or call 606.474.3298 or 606.474.3258.

Investment of Time, Prayer, and Love

“I’ll never forget how the Bible and Ministry professors at KCU cared about me as a person. They didn’t just see me
as a student number. They invested time, prayer, and love into my life and my ministry, and I’m eternally thankful
for their influence.”

Sean Plank, Class of 2010
