'The will, the drive, the desire' to spread the gospel

PULSE outreach 2018A recent gathering of young people in Texas has stirred memories of another gathering of believers in the Lone Star State in the 1970s.

An estimated 90,000 people packed the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth late last month to focus on Jesus by listening to a diverse collection of Christian music artists and speakers. The massive two-day event called "Together 2018" was organized by PULSE, the Minneapolis-based and millennial-led ministry. Two years ago, the organization held "Together 2016" on the National Mall in Washington, DC, with a gathering of hundreds of thousands.

PULSE's Susan Harris tells OneNewsNow this movement could have an impact much like what happened in Dallas when Reverend Billy Graham and others spoke to a young crowd of 75,000 at the Cotton Bowl – an event the late evangelist described as a "religious Woodstock."

"This could be a revival generation like in 1972 ... at Explo and [we] saw the Jesus Movement come out of that," Harris shares. "We believe that this generation has the will, the drive, the desire to really make a change .... [And we believe] that we are at a place in our world and in society where people want something different and are tired of division and arguing and want to see a different way of focusing on Jesus."

PULSE's desire, she says, is to mobilize and equip millennial and Generation Z believers to reach the world for Jesus.
