Are you ready to be surrounded?

The Nashville area is a beautiful hub of activity, growth, and potential. And although this town is constantly attracting attention and residents at a record pace, for me, it’s just home... a place that I love!

Although some of the growth and energy in the city is physical, I believe that much of the growth is profoundly spiritual. I’m sensing it is time for a gathering of believers in Jesus Christ to come together across denominations, races, ethnicities, and generations. It’s time for a night of prayer and worship for Middle Tennessee!

My hope is that this evening will be a space for us to pause, and that the pausing will give God an opportunity to move, to awaken in His people a greater hunger and thirst for Him. The ultimate goal is that He would shift our hearts toward those who surround us, that we’d experience God’s love in us and through us.

I hope that you’ll join me, some very special friends, and some local pastors & leaders, on August 30th at 7 pm at the Bridgestone Arena. I’m sure that anyone who attends, be they individuals, families and entire congregations, will experience an evening they will never forget.

Thanks to our friends at TBN, admission is 100% FREE.
