Pulse Looks to Gather 1 Million For Together 2016
Free event to feature 30+ speakers, artists, pastors, and leaders from various backgrounds for a day of unified prayer and worshi
(Washington, DC) Thirty-three-year-old evangelist Nick Hall, who some are calling the “Billy Graham” of the next generation, recently called for one million people to unite in prayer on the National Mall on July 16th.
The event is called Together 2016, is free to the public, and will feature more than 30 prominent speakers and performers throughout the day including Francis Chan, Lecrae, Hillsong United, Michael W Smith among many others.
“Our dream is for one million people from all backgrounds to be part of this historic day, standing together for Jesus on the National Mall,” said Hall. “We’re praying for a crowd that is bigger than any of us have been a part of; we want a glimpse of heaven on earth. We believe Jesus can do unprecedented things in our time.”
Hall is looking to mobilize the next generation of Christians in two key ways:
• Reconnect millennials to faith, and promote unity during this politically charged year. There will be no political agenda or statements made at this event.
• 1,200 community service projects happening within a 100-mile radius of Washington, D.C. leading up to the event.
Confirmed speakers and artists include: Hillsong United, Kari Jobe, Francis Chan, Lecrae, Nick Hall, Passion, Crowder, Kirk Franklin, Ravi Zacharias, Jeremy Camp, Andy Mineo, Michael W. Smith, Lauren Daigle, Christine Caine, Mark Batterson, Matthew West, Jo Saxton, Mike Kelsey, Casting Crowns, John K. Jenkins, Sr., Josh McDowell, Laurel Bunker, Luis Palau, Tedashii, Tasha Cobbs, Lacey Sturm, York Moore, Trip Lee, Sammy Rodriguez, Ronnie Floyd, Reid Saunders, Bob Lenz, Jose Zayas, Jennie Allen, Nabeel Qureshi, and Josh Brewer.
“During this political year we see so many people of faith becoming negative, critical and jaded,” said Hall. “Where is our help found? Where is our hope found? Not in political leaders. What better time to do something on a large scale that draws our attention back to where it really matters?”
