Auburn men’s basketball team chaplain Jeremy Napier told The Washington Examiner that he had been involved in planning the original worship event, but that the baptisms were unplanned.
A revival is happening tonight in Auburn. People are getting baptized at Red Barn with hundreds of people cheering them on. The baptisms started following an event at Neville arena tonight called Unite. @TheAUPlainsman @AUFAMILY pic.twitter.com/PzEza1UWKz

”I’ve been a part of just planning this event and man, the Lord just took it from there and we ended up at the Red Barn,” said Napier. “It was not planned at all. I think this was a spontaneous decision at the very end where we just said ‘let’s go for it.’”
