BCNN1 says the man who is leading this 1 million person gathering on Washington, D. C., Nick Hall, is the real deal and may be the next Billy Graham and Billy Sunday we’ve been looking for. Watch the video below.
Influential evangelical leaders throughout the U.S. will fly to Washington, D.C. this weekend to join a crowd of as many as 1 million Christians to pray and worship together for the nation.
Inspired by Nick Hall, founder of PULSE, “Together 2016” is a prayer and evangelism movement to empower the church and awaken the culture to Jesus. Americans are being urged to unite on the National Mall, July 16, to offer prayer that God will change the hearts of individuals and thus change the nation.
“It’s a gathering for all people to come together under the banner of Jesus. The only agenda is Jesus,” Hall told The Christian Post. “It’s the church from all backgrounds — Lutherans, Catholics, Pentecostals. It’s going to be worship, it’s going to be prayer, and it’s going to be lifting up Jesus and praying that He changes our hearts individually. We’re talking about a reset in our lives and ultimately a reset in this generation. We really believe that there’s a heart issue and that God wants our heart.”
The college pastor came up with the radical idea of uniting pastors and Christian leaders from all denominational backgrounds to join 1 million people at the free event in hopes of inspiring true revival in America.
“We feel like throughout history and throughout Scripture when times get rough there’s only one solution for people of faith and that’s to call the people together,” he said.
Hall spoke of past generations, dating back to biblical times, where the people of God gathered and prayed. He felt the need to spearhead this event because he maintained that this generation is in dark times and it has not had a gathering of this magnitude to pray.
“The Gathering is just about Jesus, there’s a lot of gatherings for different causes but we really believe there’s something about just dialing it back and saying, ‘We need Jesus more than anything else’ and [letting others know] that Jesus is for everyone and that Jesus changes everything,” Hall continued.
Over 40 well-known speakers, recording artists, authors and leaders from various backgrounds will be featured at the historic event, all unified in prayer and worship.
Confirmed guest speakers and artists include: Hillsong United, Kari Jobe, Francis Chan, Lecrae, Passion, Crowder, Kirk Franklin, Ravi Zacharias, Jeremy Camp, Andy Mineo, Michael W. Smith, Lauren Daigle, Christine Caine, Mark Batterson, Tony Evans, Matthew West, Jo Saxton, Mike Kelsey, Casting Crowns, John K. Jenkins Sr., Josh McDowell, Luis Palau, Tasha Cobbs, Lacey Sturm, Trip Lee, Samuel Rodriguez, Jennie Allen, Christine D’Clario, Matt Maher, Sammy Wanyonyi, Lindsey Nobles, and others.
