At the very least 132,000 individuals around the globe settled on the choice to follow Christ during a Good Friday virtual evangelistic occasion that was facilitated by Pulse and included notable Christian pioneers and vocalists, as indicated by new information.
Since the virtual recovery was facilitated a huge number of individuals have contacted Pulse to share their choice to finish Jesus call focuses, messages, sites and instant messages. Heartbeat organizer Nick Hall said in a Saturday tweet that an aggregate of 132,000 individuals “reacted to Jesus” because of the Good Friday communicate and in excess of 100 million individuals tuned in.
“We were literally getting smartphone photos from all over the world – from Nigeria to India and China – of families gathering in their living rooms, around 18-inch cathode-ray TVs, laptops and HD screens watching our services,” Hall said in a statement. “The doors to our church buildings may have been closed, but the church has not closed. We are living through a Great Quarantine Revival, and I think God is just getting started.”
The Good Friday streaming broadcast – still available online – featured Hall, apologist Ravi Zacharias, author Max Lucado, former NFL coach Tony Dungy, and pastors Francis Chan and Samuel Rodriguez. Lauren Daigle, Michael W. Smith, and the husband-and-wife team of Cody Carnes and Kari Jobe sang.
The service was viewed in nearly 100 countries, including China, Japan, Nepal, Thailand, India, Kenya, Nigeria, Russia and Ukraine. It was translated into 40 different languages.
“We had translators working in closed countries who were risking their lives to bring this message in their language to their people, because that’s how precious the gospel is to them,” Hall said.
Pulse also hosted a “Leader Check-In” for ministers and pastors on the Wednesday prior to Easter. It featured Chan, Rodriquez, Ann Voskamp, Beth Moore, David Platt, Priscilla Shirer and Lecrae. Michael W. Smith, Matt Maher, and Carnes and Jobe sang. Hundreds of thousands watched.
“This happened because I had a lot of friends that were calling me crying and in tears, overwhelmed by the situation – whether it was at home, in their business or in their church,” Hall said. “And I simply called out to God and said, ‘God, what would it look like to bring together men and women to offer hope and perspective in this moment of need?’”
