Evangelist Nick Hall, the founder of the millennial-led evangelism movement, PULSE, contended that more than 100,000 people gave their lives to Christ last year.
Hall explained to CBN News’ “The Prayer Link” that more young people are drawing closer to God in light of today’s political atmosphere.
"What I am hearing from young believers is really a desire to come together around the need to share Jesus, to share the Gospel," Hall noted. "There's all sorts of opinions about all sorts of things, all sorts of ideas and yet there is one thing that changes everything, and so I am seeing people praying, fasting, and really believing that, man, no matter what happens, we know that God is in control and we need to trust Him now more than ever."
He noted that PULSE has been sharing the Gospel in response to the difficulties that took place throughout 2020.
“Our ministry is responding like we always would - we want to get the Gospel out. We want to call the church to where our hope is found. I've seen a lot in the last 12 months, much less these last years,” he said.
Hall asserted that believers can “unite to lift up a voice for justice and for the hurting and vulnerable,” and warned Christians not to let their passion for Jesus be overshadowed by secondary issues, such as politics and elections.
The PULSE founder added that churches should speak out on issues of discrimination and racial injustice.
"I understand the complexities and the tensions,” he said. “I'm in Minneapolis, ground zero of George Floyd being killed on our streets, riots and protests happening right here. But when one part of the family hurts, we all should hurt. And this issue of racial justice and discrimination is an issue that plagues our nation for far too long.”
Hall argued that the church “cannot afford to be silent now” in addressing “certain wrongs, otherwise “how do we have a right to speak about any wrong? This is the time for the light of Christ to rise up."
Despite shutdowns from the COVID-19 pandemic, Hall noted that PULSE has led more than 100,000 people to Christ, thanks to multiple outlets.
“In the last 12 months, even from March to May last year, we had over 150 million people hear the Gospel and over 100,000 publicly respond to Jesus,” he explained. “These are digital events, outreach events, Zoom all over the world and through television. I just think there's never been a hunger like this."
In closing, Hall said his prayer for 2021 is revival, starting with the church turning to God for repentance.
“Repentance needs to start with us and we need to get before God that He would set us on fire for what matters, that we would burn for scripture, that His word would be alive in us and from revival – it's a prayer for an awakening. I believe that now is the time for the world to see a clear declaration of the Gospel and that Jesus is the one they're looking for,” he concluded.
