MINNEAPOLIS — Following this week’s widely successful Leader Check-In, Nick Hall hosted an uplifting Good Friday Service to remember why “the darkest day in history is empowering our brightest future.”
The service is an initiative of PULSE and Year of the Bible and was streamed at 5 p.m. ET, Friday, April 10, on GoodFriday.com and the PULSE Movement Facebook and YouTube pages. It will be available in over 100 countries in 36 different languages, and can be watched online on demand.
Nick will be joined by popular Bible teachers Francis Chan, Ravi Zacharias, Max Lucado and Rev. Samuel Rodriguez and by World Vision U.S. President Edgar Sandoval Sr. Worship will be led by Grammy Award winners Lauren Daigle and Michael W. Smith and Dove Award winners Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes.
“Good Friday is an opportunity to remember that through our tragedies, suffering and loss, great redemption is at work behind the scenes. This is a unique moment in history where the message of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection resounds powerfully on the global stage,” Hall said. “Though it may seem like the darkest day in history, Good Friday is a day of victory and hope, and it is empowering our brightest future.”
The Good Friday service will also include an opportunity for viewers to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic through World Vision’s domestic and global relief programs.
“Truly the COVID-19 pandemic is unlike any other — impacting everyone around the globe: the wealthy and the poor, the powerful and the weak, from the north and the south to the east and the west,” said World Vision U.S. President Sandoval.
“We are honored to be a part of this event, as we come together as the body of Christ on a Good Friday unlike any we’ve observed in our lifetime. One where we will remember the death of our Savior, while also mourning the deadly impacts of this virus on our country and the world. And as we anticipate the wonder of His resurrection, we celebrate that the same power that raised Christ from the dead is in us (Eph 1:19-20). Now is our time to show the love of Christ in action to a watching world. Together we can help the most vulnerable here in the United States and around the globe.”
