A Minnesota-based evangelist is calling on 1 million Americans to gather in the nation’s capital this summer to pray, worship and “stand for Jesus” and “catalytic change” at Together 2016.
Nick Hall, the founder of PULSE, a prayer and evangelism movement to empower the church and awaken the culture to Jesus, is calling on Americans to unite on the National Mall on July 16 to offer prayer that God will change the hearts of a divided America.
“What would it look like, on one day, to rally the entire nation together, not around what we’re against — and that’s often what we get known for — but rallying people around what we’re for, and around the change that Jesus offers?” Hall asked Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Easter Sunday.
Hall said the nation is on the precipice of monumental change and emphasized that change is often ushered in by significant gatherings like Together 2016.
“Moments of historic change [are] often marked by historic gatherings, and so, for us, we really believe that this is a time to shift the nation back to what matters,” said Hall, citing other “defining moments of faith” as the women’s suffrage and Civil Rights movements.
Regarding the increasing division of the nation during contentious presidential elections, Hall added that while it’s easy to be critical and negative during election cycles, people really long to come together. “We can still unite, regardless of our differences, and we really believe that Jesus is the one that can bring us together.”
Hall sits on the leadership team of the National Association of Evangelicals and on the student advisory team for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. He’s even been dubbed by some as the “Billy Graham of the next generation,” and admires the famed evangelist’s ability to bring people together.
