Nick Hall, founder of the Millennial-led evangelism movement PULSE and visionary behind the Year of the Bible campaign, is gathering a cast of some of the most prominent American pastors, artists, influencers and public officials to encourage church leaders ahead of Easter weekend.
Leader Check-In (Wednesday, April 8, 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. CST) is a free, 10-hour live event featuring a multi-denominational, -generational and -ethnic guest list, ranging from pastors such as Matt Chandler and Samuel Rodriguez to artists Lecrae and Michael W. Smith, authors Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend and public figures Sen. Tim Scott and Dr. Jerome Adams. As of yesterday afternoon, Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Bob Goff, Francis Chan, David Platt, Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes are also expected to participate.
The event is an initiative of PULSE and Year of the Bible to come alongside ministry leaders and offer practical advice anchored in the Word of God during a time of crisis.
“Easter 2020 may be the most important Easter celebration in the past century,” Nick Hall said. “We are living through an unprecedented time in church history. People are looking for hope and turning to churches in record numbers. I believe the message of a God Who not only suffers with and for us but also defeats sin and death has been more needed, but we will miss this moment if we don’t care for our pastors and ministers now. Leaders are pouring themselves out to encourage their congregations during this global crisis. They are weary and need encouragement as well.”
Leader Check-In will be available to watch for free at LeaderCheckIn.com and through PULSE’s Facebook page on Wednesday, April 8, from 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. CST. Artists Michael W. Smith and Travis Greene will lead worship sets, while Matt Chandler, Dr. John Townsend, Dr. Henry Cloud, Pastor John Gray, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Bishop Vincent Matthews, Ed Stetzer, Museum of the Bible Chairman Steve Green, The Bible Recap podcast host Tara-Leigh Cobble, National Day of Prayer Task Force President Kathy Branzell and others will encourage and uplift leaders.
Sen. Tim Scott from South Carolina and VADM Jerome M. Adams, M.D., M.P.H., will deliver special remarks regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
