Over 60,000 Christians from across the United States gather for a new “Jesus Movement” organized by several different ministries.
Organized by Youth With A Mission, Christ For All Nations and Lou Engle Ministries, a 10-hour event “The Send” gathered 60,000 Christians. It happened at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando Florida.
The event featured pastors and evangelist from different churches such as Bill Johnson, Daniel Kolenda, and Francis Chan. Several worship teams such as Hillsong Young & Free, Jesus Culture, Tasha Cobbs-Leonard, and Bethel Music also took part in the great movement.
“The send is ultimately a war on inaction. It’s to be a twofold beautiful experience,” Michael Koulianos, evangelist and founder of Jesus Image, said. “Number one, we’re gathering here to be in the presence of Jesus to truly encounter Him and then be sent from His presence, to take His actual person, to our cities, to our towns, to our neighborhoods, to our families, to our marriages.”
“The Send” is an attempt to unify each Body of Christ, an attempt to come together for one purpose.
“I think it’s amazing,” Todd White, evangelist and founder of Lifestyle Christianity, said. “It’s God’s waking up a sleeping giant, His church to come together and being in unity of faith and not say, ‘I prefer my ministry before yours’ but we actually prefer each other. What we’ve done is a collaboration of ministries coming together saying, ‘Let’s all go forward in one purpose, one mind, and let’s go purpose, Jesus everywhere we go.’”
The purpose was clear, according to one of the attendees, to worship Jesus.
“The most significant thing about the event to me was that it was obvious. It wasn’t about the people on the stage but the people in the crowd. There was a singular purpose that was felt. It was to seek Jesus and worship Him,” Yassirie Moreno, a youth ministry leader in a local Orlando church, said.
It is refreshing to see different ministries and different churches come together to worship Jesus. May this event spark up more unity around the globe aimed at uniting believers together in the name of Jesus Christ. In a world full of division, unity is what we need!
