Pasadena, CA – Azusa Now gains support in record numbers as Church Leaders and the Faith-based community join together to support their upcoming gathering taking place on April 9, 2016 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
This collaborative effort of church leaders and organizations sharing a message of unity, prayer and the breaking down of racial barriers has led to the participation of over 900 churches, along with dozens of partner ministries such as Bethel Church, Christ For All Nations, Heidi Baker’s Iris Global, and more. Pre-registration has now reached more than 50,000 attendees with thousands more registering each week. Registration to attend is free but required.
According to Rachel L. Holden, CEO of the host ministry TheCall, “We feel we are in a historic moment for the body of Christ to gather in unity together. This amount of engagement is very encouraging. To our knowledge, the last time the Los Angeles Coliseum was filled to overflow for a gathering of this type was the Billy Graham Crusade on September 8, 1963 with a record attendance of 134,256. We are looking at contingency plans if overflow is needed.”
Azusa Now will also be seen by millions around the world as it will be televised live on the day of the event by God TV and other media, as well as live streamed via the Internet.
Azusa Now will have a number of pre-event activities such as Flood LA, where Circuit Riders, a collaborative ministry of YWAM, one of the largest youth organizations in the world, have joined with Bethel Church for a citywide evangelistic outreach. Todd White’s School of Power and Love is also training people in Los Angeles and around the country in effective street evangelism ahead of the event.
One of the most important resources to an event of this size are the volunteers. Several thousand volunteers have come forth from churches and organizations, however several thousand more are needed. Those wanting to volunteer, to register for the gathering, to take part in the United City Gospel Choir, or to be part of the pre-rally activities should visit the website at www.AzusaNow2016.com.
