A network of churches and ministry leaders are aiming to put on the “largest Christian outreach” crusade in history across dozens of African countries next May in a movement that will culminate on Pentecost Sunday.
Simultaneous Christian “miracle festivals” featuring African sports, entertainment, and political celebrities will be held from May 28 through May 31 as part of a movement called One God – One Day – One Africa (1GDA). The hope is to “blanket Africa with prayer.”
1GDA is a continental festival of unity the scope of which has never been seen before, according to organizer Jennifer Wilde, the founder of Wilde 4 Jesus Ministries who has served over three decades as a missionary.
The crusade events will be organized by local churches, religious leaders and ministries in partnership with foreign ministries and leaders. The aim, Wilde told CP, is to have evangelistic crusade events held in as many African countries as possible.
So far, the organizers say they have partner ministries lined up to lead and organize crusade events in at least 30 African countries. But they are calling on churches around the world to help organize crusade rallies in the remaining countries.
“It is amazing, all the unity that God is bringing about for One God – One Day – One Africa,” Wilde told The Christian Post.
The rallies will feature local singers and preachers to best reach their local populations. They will be live-streamed and broadcast to millions, according to Wilde. Funding will be provided to organizers to take care of basic needs such as renting crusade grounds and buying sound equipment.
1GDA aims to send 10,000 local evangelists to travel to villages and towns throughout Africa to bring the Good News to their neighbors.
“It is not just one denomination,” Wilde explained. “We are all one body and God has really put everyone together for this. So this will be the largest Christian outreach actually in history in the world. There’s nothing like this that has really ever been done covering an entire continent, not just a country, but a continent with the Gospel of Jesus in one day.”
