Movement Day Reports
October was a major month for US and Global Movement Day gatherings. Founder and director, Dr. Mac Pier provided an encouraging city-by-city report on their web site, that included:
- Phoenix, Arizona, where Movement Day Arizona was attended by 100 churches wrestling with a range of issues including foster care, underperforming schools, and church planting.
- Pretoria, South Africa, one of the most mature church networks in the world.
- Cape Town, South Africa, the birthplace of the Global Day of Prayer, the Unashamedly Ethical Movement, and host of Lausanne 2010.
- Durban, South Africa where a thousand leaders gathered across 24 hours that included a prayer meeting led by Millennials, a Movement Day expression, and a concluding evening of worship, also led by Millennials.
- Nairobi, Kenya - Leaders from 11 nations gathered in Nairobi, the hub of East Africa.
- London, United Kingdom - We met in Central Methodist Hall, Mother Church to Charles Wesley. A thousand leaders across the UK, Europe, and the globe gathered.
- New York City - We gathered at Bethel Gospel Assembly in Harlem with more than 1000 leaders
Dr. Pier concluded: “It seemed appropriate that 60 percent of these Movement Day gatherings took place in Africa and Asia where 75 percent of the world lives. These seven gatherings modeled the truth that Christianity transcends geography, ethnicity, and economics.”
