On March 17 thirty leaders met in Phoenix to build a team to bring Movement Day to Phoenix and the state of Arizona. The meetings were organized by Gary Kinnaman who serves as the Scripture Catalyst for American Bible Society in Phoenix. We met at Grand Canyon University, one of the largest Christian universities in the world with 75,000 students. We also had a downtown Phoenix meeting.
Phoenix has a core group emerging that will bring up to 100 leaders to Movement Day Global Cities. The Phoenix City Movement has one of the most mature networks of leaders in the world including dozens of the city’s largest churches. Each Spring, they collaborate on “Hope Fest,” which impacts thousands of people across the city through acts of service. Hope Fest is led by City Serve, founded by the Luis Palau Association.
The church/school partnership model also is gaining great momentum, with dozens of churches involved. At Arizona State University under Ben Sanders’ leadership, they are hosting Ravi Zacharias in one of the largest outreaches in the history of ASU, the nations largest university.
The expectation is that a Movement Day Phoenix will emerge in the next 18-24 months. Will you join the movement too?
