Dozens of well-known Christian leaders participated in a 10-hour live event on Wednesday, April 8, where churches and organizations from around the world held virtual discussions on how to best manage the COVID-19 crisis.
Nick Hall, founder, and chief communicator for the evangelistic movement PULSE and Year of the Bible hosted this “Leader Check-In” event as a way for leaders to offer biblical and practical help to pastors and ministry leaders before the Easter weekend.
A large number of prominent leaders and evangelicals such as Beth Moore, Francis Chan, Priscilla Shirer, Mike Lindell, Bob Goff, David Platt, Lecrae, Michael W. Smith, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Tony Dungy, Dr. John Townsend, Kari Jobe, Sadie Robertson, Ann Voskamp and many more joined the live event.
Hall explained that the event is important during this unique time in history because so many people are searching for hope.
“Easter 2020 may be the most important Easter celebration in the past century. We are living through an unprecedented time in church history,” Hall said. “People are looking for hope and turning to churches in record numbers. I believe the message of a God who not only suffers with us and for us – but also defeats sin and death – has never been more needed.”
“We will miss this moment if we don’t care for our pastors and ministers now,” Hall added.
PULSE has partnered with the Christian aid group World Vision, to provide training supplies and equipment for those working on the front lines during the coronavirus pandemic.
