“We are excited to partner with Christ for the Nations to give Spirit-empowered believers an additional way to get involved in the Global Congress,” said Empowered21 President and Global Co-Chair William M. Wilson. “Prayer support is essential as we believe for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the Jerusalem 2015 Global Congress.”
“We invite believers from around the world to participate in the Empowered21 Global Congress, both in prayer and attendance,” said President and CEO of Christ for the Nations Dennis Lindsay. “We believe God will use this powerful event to change the lives of Jewish and Arab Christians as well as youth around the world.”
The Empowered21 Global Congress, May 20-25, 2015, is a call to all believers from around the world to celebrate Pentecost in the land of Pentecost. The event is expected to bring thousands of Christians to the region for a time of teaching, praise and prayer. Main sessions will be held in the new Jerusalem arena, which is slated to open in the fall of this year.
This historic meeting will begin with a grand opening celebration in the Jerusalem Arena on Wednesday, May 20, 2015. The next day will feature general sessions and focused tracks including: prayer and intercession, the effective evangelist, Spirit-empowered discipleship, next gen values and ministry, business leadership God’s way, scholars gathering and paper presentation, prophecy and the end times, compassion, media, technology and communications, exploring the land of Pentecost, signs, wonders and healing, leading, planting and prospering the church today, effective worship and praise, Israel and the church today and the book of Acts today.
On Friday, May 22, an outdoor worship event will be held in Manger Square in Bethlehem. There will be a special service on Saturday, May 23, at the Jordan River at the spot where it is believed that Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Also, on this day and other points in the week, conference attendees will spread out to bless the land in an outreach called “Hope in the Holy Land.” Attendees will work on a variety of service projects including: cleaning streets and windows, distributing groceries and school supplies, running a kids zone, feeding the poor, serving at community centers, running a health clinic and participating in a blood drive.
The Global Congress will end Sunday, May 24, in a full-throttle Pentecost celebration at the Jerusalem Arena. Believers from around the world will unite to ask for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit to reach the ends of the Earth. This event is the celebration of Shavuot, occurring the same day as Pentecost Sunday on the western calendar.
