What is Movement Day?

Movement Day (MD) was launched in 2010, as a one-day to three-day gathering of ministry, marketplace and nonprofit leaders passionate about cities and the Gospel of Jesus, coming together across denominational, ethnic, geographical, and socio-economic lines. Over 18,000 city leaders have been trained.

Those called to lead these gatherings are individuals with a vision for God accelerating a gospel movement in their city, individuals eager to link arms with other leaders who desire to see the Body of Christ come together. Movement Day Expressions is the vehicle through which we serve the launch of these gatherings across the globe..

Our Goal

To Accelerate a Gospel Movement in your City

The goal of hosting a MD expression in your city is to accelerate a gospel movement – catalyzing highly trained, motivated and sold-out leaders determined to find solutions to “stubborn facts” like crime, poverty, apathy, failed educational systems, and unemployment plaguing cities across America and around the world.

Since its inception, Movement Day has made the following five compelling observations about the power of our work.
