To attend a religious revival event, during which you would be prompted by the preacher to testify.
The act of testifying normally involves babbling incoherently while sharing folksy
stories of your nasty life being turned around because the creator of the universe decided to pay you a personal visit and issue a get out of jail free card. He's nice like that, and as a pensioner he has a free bus pass allowing him to travel anywhere in the world.

You two are wrong. "Testify" comes from the Latin "witness" and has nothing to do with "testicle" which also comes from the Latin for "witness". I was asked this in class by the professor in college English. I would have been wrong and embarrassed myself, so I just said "I don't know". But here's what I got from the Internet:
testatio -onis f. calling to witness , or bearing witness
testificatio -onis f. bearing witness , testifying; evidence, proof
testificor -ari dep. to bear witness to , give evidence of; to show, bring to light; to call to witness
testimonium -i n. witness , evidence; proof, indication
testis (1) -is c. one who gives evidence , a witness; an eye-witness, a spectator
testor -ari dep. (1) to bear witness to , give evidence of; to make known, publish, declare

1. To give one's information "as truthfully as possible." Taken from an old Roman phrase "to swear on one's testicles." Now, think about that, and think about how differently court cases would turn out if that meaning held true to this day...
"Testify" is usually used in reference to a court setting or a confession of some sort.
Testify means lot's of things. It can be said almost in any situation. Nancy Grace is a fan of Testification. Testifying can mean you're trying to receive some justice (see receiving justice for more info). You're hitting on someone. You're trying to get laid. You're trying to tell someone what the fuck is up. You're trying to get belligerent drunk. You're trying this, trying that. Ect.
Person 1: Did you see Robert last night? He was definitely trying to testify
Person 2: Oh do you think he received?
Person 3: Do I think? Shit, I know he did.
