FBC Joins RESET Movement

First Baptist Church in Mena has joined the RESET Movement, an unprecedented national evangelism effort initiated by the PULSE Movement, in partnership with some of the country’s leading ministries, that is launching this fall with more than 25 strategic gatherings across the United States. The first phase of a groundbreaking three-year outreach, RESET Movement aims to bring the Gospel to more students and young adults in this country than ever before. The event at First Baptist Church in Mena will be held October 31 at 7 p.m.

Under the direction of PULSE, RESET Movement is supported by a diverse national network of leading ministries, pastors and churches, including the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the Luis Palau Association, CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ), the American Bible Society, and Alpha USA, among others.

Beginning September 18 in Phoenix, RESET gatherings will be held in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas, among other cities, before concluding the initial phase November 3 in Dallas. This year’s RESET strategy will also include three days of major events in New York City in October, designed to engage young adults in a series of outreach and international social justice initiatives.

Highlighted by PULSE Movement founder and leading young evangelist Nick Hall’s Gospel presentation, each RESET gathering will feature music from Rend Collective Experiment; Lacey Sturm (formerly of Flyleaf); spoken-word artist Propaganda; worship leader Dave Lubben; DJ Efechto; International House of Prayer worship artist Matt Gilman; and singer/songwriter Morgan Harper Nichols.

“I can think of nothing more exciting than bridging the Body of Christ toward a supernatural reset that transforms a generation,” says Hall, PULSE founder and chief communicator. “It’s time to fast and pray. It’s time to unite in pursuit of a modern-day move of God. It’s time to spread the mission and message of Jesus from coast to coast!”

In addition, the RESET Movement will partner with local pastors and churches in each city for effective long-term sustainment of the initiative. RESET teams will mobilize volunteers to promote and prepare for each event, as well as help provide follow-up and discipleship resources afterwards.

RESET Movement’s three-year effort is projected to culminate in 2015 with the largest gathering of students and young adults in U.S. history. With a goal of seeing hundreds of thousands of people standing together to pray, worship, and commit their lives to Jesus, the movement aims to spark a sweeping revival in the hearts of young adults across America, empowering a generation to live fully for Jesus Christ.

Nick Hall is one of America’s preeminent young evangelists. PULSE Movement, which he founded in 2006, is among the fastest growing youth evangelistic movements in the country today, encompassing student prayer gatherings, evangelism training, outreach events, and the PULSE follow-up process.

Hall served as the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular’s featured speaker in 2012 and 2013—the world’s top first quarter tour for three consecutive years. He is also a partner evangelist with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and the Luis Palau Association through festivals and training events. He has emceed multiple BGEA “Rock the River Tour” events and was among 4,000 international delegates invited to attend The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2010. Hall also recently attended the invitation-only Lausanne Global Leadership Forum in Bangalore, India.
