60,000 Christians from across the United States gathered recently to be part of a “new Jesus movement.” “The Send,” was a 10-hour event organized by Youth With A Mission, Christ for All Nations, and Lou Engle of Lou Engle Ministries. The Orlando, Florida event at Camping World Stadium featured several collaborators from various national ministries who hoped to motivate Christians to fulfil their God-given call. According to Engle, the live-streamed event was inspired by a conversation in 2011 with YWAM members hoping missionaries would rise up following the death of Rev. Billy Graham.
As the day went on, The Send featured pastors and evangelists such as Bill Johnson, Daniel Kolenda and Francis Chan, along with worship teams such as Hillsong Young & Free, Jesus Culture, Tasha Cobbs-Leonard and Bethel Music. Event attendee and ministry leader in her local Orlando church, Yassirie Moreno testified that The Send did exactly what it set out to do. “I definitely felt it was a call to action. 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, and it was to seek Jesus and worship Him,” Moreno said.
Moreno added, “The atmosphere that was set simply allowed us to move in that and empowered us to want to see God’s power manifest outside of the stadium. It was like charging up your spiritual battery to go out and be the gospel for the community and serve with the heart of God. I can honestly say it was so much more than I expected. This event wasn’t hype, which I truthfully expected, but it was definitely a call to action and to live Holy, as Todd White said, ‘Grace isn’t a pass for us to sin but the power for us to live the way Jesus did, without sin.’”
