Catholic, Protestant and Ethnic Communities Gather Together
to Promote Unity and Reconciliation at Azusa Now 2016

azusanowPasadena, CA – Tomorrow, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will host Azusa Now, a stadium-sized prayer gathering in which many diverse ethnic groups and denominations will come together as a unified movement in the faith-based community.

Registrations are well on their way to a 100,000+ capacity audience, with the Azusa Now team having laid plans in place for overflow. The last time the Los Angeles Coliseum was filled beyond capacity was the Billy Graham Crusade on September 8, 1963.

This collaborative effort of church leaders and organizations sharing a message of unity, prayer and the breaking down of racial barriers has led to the participation of over 1000 churches, along with dozens of partner ministries such as Bethel Church, Christ For All Nations, Heidi Baker’s Iris Global, and many more.

Tonight, a Carry the Love Field Night pre-rally will take place at the south lawn of the Coliseum.  Field Nights are explosive outdoor worship concerts along with an inspirational message of hope.  This event is free and will be held from 7pm – 10pm.

Azusa Now will be a 15 ½ hour event held on Saturday, April 9.  Denominational and racial boundaries have been broken across Catholic and Protestant communities, as well as African-American, Asian, Hispanic and Caucasian populations who are all coming together for this event.
