About Festival of Life
Festival of Life is a community event for families. Appealing to all ages, we are bringing music, games, and a message of hope to our community. We have acquired the Gus Young BREC Park on March 15th, 16th, 17th. The nightly schedule, event details, and training in follow-up procedures will all be handled by Pastor Butch LaBauve and a team from River Global. Pastor Butch is the founder of River Ministries International and River Global Institute. He has been preaching the Gospel since 1993 and has discipled, ministered and planted churches around the world.
We will meet with local leaders and churches to determine the areas of greatest need, which will positivley impact the community. Festival of Life was birthed in 2017, with over 11,000 people in attendance and 2,897 people made a decision to follow Jesus! It was one of the largest events this area has ever seen. There were many giveaways for the community in the form of free groceries, gift cards, bikes and other items.
Festival of Life seeks to positively impact the community. Along with meeting physical needs, it is our belief that the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ can change hearts and set those in bondage free. Whether individuals are struggling financially, with addiction or the community is crime-stricken and families are broken, introducing a relationship with Christ changes people. It changes families. When people and families prosper, so do communities. Each evening an evangelist will bring a powerful message of hope to those in attendance at Festival of Life.
Murder rate in East Baton Rouge sees a dramatic drop
The second quarter of 2023 saw an 8.62% decrease in homicides compared to the same period in 2022. The Baton Rouge Police Department and East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office report a notable improvement compared to homicides in the same period in 2022 and 2021. Data also shows a 22.16% reduction in non-fatal shooting incidents for the same period across both agencies. The last four years East Baton Rouge has averaged 10 murders per month. In the months of August, September and October of 2023 there were 10 murders for all three months. God is hearing the prayers of His saints and a difference is being made in our city.

Returning to the Prayer House
On May 8, 2023, Bishop Dwight Pate will be returning to the Prayer House where it all began. That little shack at 700 Scenic Highway, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which started as a used car lot, where Bishop Pate felt the call of God, set up and preached to 50 empty chairs, has been restored and renovated.
The Prayer House has been a place of refuge and vision, direction and communion with the Holy Spirit, throughout Bishop Pate's ministry. To date, he has shut up to pray three times: in 1994 for 7 1/2 months. Thousands of bottles of Holy Anointed Oil were freely distributed and many outstanding testimonies were broadcast on the WNDC radio station. And in 2000, he stayed for 5 months to identify with the pain and suffering of the elderly. His last prayer vigil was in 2014 where he received over 5000 calls and did not leave the church grounds for 11 1/2 months.
It was during the first shut in that the LORD spoke to him to pray over olive oil and to distribute this Holy Anointed Oil free of charge all over the world. It was also during that time the Lord gave him the Grace Agreement.
We are believing God to take murder off the streets and to remove fear out of the hearts of the people. Let's pray together for revival.
Thank you for your love, prayers, and financial support.
