50 TENTS. 50 STATES. ONE VOICE.
4 DAYS TOGETHER ON THE NATIONAL MALL
VISION AND PLAN 2017
We have reserved the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 6-9, 2017. We are calling America to an unprecedented worship movement on the National Mall. When we gather around the invisible God, the impossible becomes possible.
We will gather in 50+ tents covering the National Mall. It will be a tent-city filled with worship, music, prayer, and the gospel.
Each of the 50 states will have a tent for day and night prayer and relational connection. There will be larger regional tents with full sound systems for day and night worship and music. Nothing like this has ever been done before in our nation’s capital. Washington, D.C. will be a resting place for the presence of God and a staging ground for missions.
On the final day–all day–we are extremely excited to partner with TheCall in a big stage venue on the National Mall! On this final day, we will worship, pray, preach the gospel with signs and wonders, and commission a generation to complete the Great Commission!
AFTER PRAYING ABOUT THIS GATHERING…
Multiple leaders sensed that we were to gather on October 6-9, 2017. We later realized that these dates are during the Feast of Tabernacles when Israel gathered in tents in their nation’s capital, Jerusalem.
This same weekend 20 years ago, over a million men gathered for a full day prayer meeting called Promise Keepers “stand in the Gap”. We believe ATD is to be an answer to those men’s prayers- that a generation would return to the Mall simply as a love response to Jesus, in a Tabernacling expression. We want a whole weekend together this time!
In a time of unusual governmental shift in America, we are calling America to the National Mall in a procession to bring the “ark of God” to our nation’s capital. There is only one Man who is ultimately worthy. As we gather around Jesus, righteousness will be effected in our nation including our national government!
Join the procession.
WHAT’S NEXT IN 2018?
Our goal is not merely a gathering, but a movement.
In 2018, our vision is to see tents for worship, unity, and prayer in every state capital and on university campuses nationwide, leading to a new Jesus movement around the nation.
We also will be giving practical steps for those who feel called to missions and leadership. Our 2017 gathering will be a “staging ground” for missions and evangelism.
Out of this Awaken the Dawn gathering, we will be launching a plan to stand with David’s Tent in Washington, D.C. so that prayer and worship goes unbroken in our nation’s capital all year.
Lord-willing, we will gather again in 2018 in Washington, D.C.!
