THE MOVEMENT | PRAISE REPORT
October 27, 2016 (Fresno, California) – Your prayers were answered! The Movement started a few years ago as a dream of a few youth pastors in Fresno. They were looking for an evangelistic tool to reach youth. Working together, they launched the vision. The first year they had about 400 in attendance. Last year they had 600. This year they asked Fresno CityFest to join in the effort and help amp up the proclamation and reach more kids with the Gospel. We enthusiastically agreed to be involved.
The local youth pastors were hopeful we could increase attendance to 1,000 students, maybe more. Yet everyone was blown away last night when 3,600+ high school students showed up!
There were kids everywhere! Almost 1,000 had to be sent to an overflow area. When Andrew Palau gave the invitation to accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior, we had to steer them outside because there was literally no room for people to come forward.
It was a beautiful sight as circles of students gathered to be counseled and prayed with.
God is on the move in Fresno. He is doing something special. And Fresno CityFest has the joy of playing a unique role in the story.
If this is any indication of things to come, Fresno is in for an exciting season of renewal!
