60,000 Christians from around the United States came together in Orlando to be part of a “new Jesus movement.” The Christian Post reports that this 10-hour event called “The Send” was organized by Youth With A Mission, Christ for All Nations as well as Lou Engle of Lou Engle Ministries.

This event took place at Camping World Stadium and collaborators hope that this event helps motivate Christians to fulfill their “God-given call.”
Following the death of Rev. Billy Graham, Engle was inspired to take on this event after a conversation he had with YWAM members.
While at the event Christian Post caught up with evangelist Todd White and evangelist and founder of Jesus Image, Michael Koulianos to speak about the impact of the event.
White said, “I think it’s amazing. It’s God’s waking up a sleeping giant, His church to come together and being in unity of faith and not say, “I prefer my ministry before yours” but we actually prefer each other. What we’ve done is a collaboration of ministries coming together saying, “Let’s all go forward in one purpose, one mind, and let’s go purpose, Jesus everywhere we go.”
On The Send’s website they spoke about the successful event and mentioned that it was, “a call to action, a call to repentance and a call to service.”
