Long-Running Revival Booked At Lakeland Arena Through 25th

LAKELAND – Evangelist Todd Bentley‘s ongoing “Lakeland Outpouring” revival is booked through May 25 at Lakeland Center arena, a spokeswoman for the center said.

A 10 a.m. service has been added for Saturday.

Bentley, a 32-year-old Canadian evangelist, has drawn thousands of people to Lakeland for his high-energy services, which began in early April. Many participants say Bentley’s touch or just the religious intensity of the events has healed their ailments.

The services, which begin at 7 nightly, are free, but an offering is taken at every meeting.

The Lakeland Center has been charging Bentley’s ministry $15,000 a day to use the facility.

Bentley said the offerings are used to cover production expenses.

The Lakeland Center is at 701 W. Lime St.
