…. these days kinda leave you thinking that we’ve never needed this more than we do right about now. Fill the mall. Be one of a million standing for Jesus in DC on 07.16.16.

Moments of historic change? Are marked by historic gatherings. Make your mark now — it matters now. 

Together 2016 is the day our generation will meet on the National Mall to come together around Jesus in unified prayer, worship, & a call for catalytic change.

We’re all coming together with as many people as possible — people who believe Jesus changes everything.

If you believe #JesusChangesEverything? Be there — make your mark, be heard & tell the world: #JesusChangesEverything. Can you join us? This is historical:

I wanna know you, Lord

Because He LOVES you

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…fear can’t get to us, Lord, panic can’t upend us, worry can’t undo us — because when we exhale, we can hear You like a warm breath:
“I am with you. There’s no need to fear the big things, the little things, anything, for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength when the weight of it all wears you down, I’ll help you when you’re hurting, when everyone’s hurting, I’ll hold you steady when everything wildly tilts, I’ll keep a firm grip on you — so you can rest tonight, because you are held.”

And all the people held on to each other because they belonged to each other and they all beheld a Grace
that held them all.
In the name of Jesus, the only One who ever loved us to death and back to the real & forever life,
