Believers fill more than 450 theaters and churches across the US for special one night event
Nashville, Tenn. (October 28, 2016) — Chris Tomlin’s Worship Night In America was a powerful example of unity in our country, as the most diverse assembly of people — from every race, age, socio-economic status, background, and region — came together Tuesday night to pray for America. The one night event hit venues all across the US, from big cities to small towns, as people packed more than 450 theaters and churches to worship and pray alongside other believers.
“Tuesday night was one of the most meaningful things I have ever been a part of,” said Tomlin, who attended a sold-out event in St. Louis. “All streams of the Church, across this country, united on their knees calling out to God and praying for our nation.”
In more than 450 venues – from mainline denominations, Catholic parishes, megachurches and country churches to packed cinemas – attendees danced, worshiped and dropped their knees to the floor during a moving prayer by Pastor Louie Giglio. The Church lifted up their voices in unison as Tomlin, Matt Redman, Matt Maher, Tasha Cobbs, Phil Wickham and Kim-Walker Smith, led attendees in worship, proclaiming the name of God, while Max Lucado delivered a powerful message of God’s unconditional love for His children.
Attendees called the “unforgettable” event “absolutely incredible” with one event host saying it was “beautiful to see more than 200 people on their knees.”
Worship Night In America: An Evening Of Unity And Prayer For Our Country follows Tomlin’s recent release of his 11th studio album Never Lose Sight and his debut children’s book Good Good Father. For additional information, visit ChrisTomlin.com.
