US Bank Stadium Worship Event Extended by One Year: NEW DETAILS

Pulse Movement announced a big change in their plan to fill US Bank Stadium this May with worship and outreach events. Rather than holding the revival and evangelism events in 2017, they are moving the Pulse Twin Cities events to 2018, the same year US Bank Stadium will host the Super Bowl.
“We believe God is extending this season. I use the word extend because I think it’s significant, I could use the word delay. Delay means to make wait or to be slow. I’m using the word extend because extend means to cause to cover a larger area,” said Nick Hall, Pulse Founder and Chief Communicator.
The new plan for 2017 is to host an outdoor prayer gathering outside US Bank Stadium on the National Day of Prayer on May 4, 2017. This prayer event kicks off a season saturated in prayer, outreach, and training that will culminate in May 2018. Hall and the Pulse leadership team are excited by the ways God is moving and will continue to move over the next 15 months of mobilizing and equipping the Church leading up to the May 2018 event.

Minnesota Evangelicals Still Standing with Refugees

Transform Minnesota calls upon President Trump to lift the ban on U.S. refugee admissions. The spirit of this Executive Order is based on fears that originate from incorrect facts about refugees, and is an action that runs contrary to our Christian moral imperative to shelter those fleeing violence and persecution. Among Transform Minnesota’s core values are the Sanctity of Life, Religious Freedom, and Mercy. These values, drawn from our evangelical faith and belief in the Bible, compel us to offer refuge to those who are suffering the most, to vigilantly defend each other’s religious freedom, and to protect the lives of refugees who are made in the image of God. We stand with refugees because God commands us to love, welcome and seek justice for refugees and other immigrants.

Martin Luther & His 95 Theses That Transformed the Church

As we celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, we encourage all evangelical Christians to reflect on the breadth of reforms in Christian teaching and practices that followed Luther’s bold actions. By nailing his 95 theses to the university door, Luther found himself leading a movement to reform the way Christians viewed salvation, scripture, and their relationship with God. Many of the beliefs and practices evangelicals revere in worship and prayer are a direct result of the Spirit-inspired revisions Martin Luther brought before the Roman Catholic Church in 1517.

Pastor’s Column: Being Pro-Life Beyond Creating Laws

2017 brings a new year and with it a new President which some pro-lifers hope will usher in change to the landscape of abortion across our nation. Tammy Kocher, Executive Director of New Life Family Services writes about how being pro-life extends far beyond the polling place and laws created to protect life. Christians must address the social and economic barriers that lead women and men to abortion clinics. Being pro-life is about more than saving babies. It is also about raising children. Together, we need to work towards creating a culture where the Church supports life decisions, helps mothers and fathers build healthy relationships and families. And supports them in their practical struggles while nurturing their spiritual development.
