Bob Vander Plaats, the author of “If 7:14” started off the evening and cast the vision for the If 7:14 initiative, encouraging everyone to get plugged in.



The turnout was incredible! Thousands participated in person and through the live webcast. An added bonus was the large percentage of those attending were under the age of 30!


After Bob cast the vision, there was a time of prayer, led by local ministry leaders.  They prayed for our world, our nation, our families, the media, and our churches.10443117_10152257635677799_3624405252668791670_o

The leaders instructed the audience to break up into small groups and pray. This was enthusiastically embraced by all.


Then, right before the concert, Chuck and Gena Norris came out on stage and shared how they came to salvation. Chuck shared his passion for the If 7:14 initiative.10497240_10152257636847799_9093369194675192696_o


The Newsboys took the stage and gave a powerful concert. The music pointed the crowd back to revival, starting with believers.





At 7:14 p.m. the hall came to a hush as Michael Tait led the audience in prayer for our nation, for our families, and for our individual spiritual walks.


Post-show pictures (how cool is this line-up!?).


 Keep praying at 7:14!
