Exploring moments where the dead are raised throughout the Bible in preparation of celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

3/9 – Widow Of Zarapheth (I Kings 17:17-24)
No One Is Too Far Away!

3/16 – Shunamite Woman’s Son (2 Kings 4:18-37)
In Response to Faith-Filled Request!

3/23 – Widow of Nain’s Son (Luke 7:11-17)
Motivated by Jesus’ Compassion

3/30 – Jairus’ Daughter (Luke 8:40-56)
Empowered By His Word

4/6 – Lazarus (John 11)
It Is Never Too Late!

4/13 – Many Saints on Good Friday (Matthew 27)
Unlocked by His Death!

4/20 – Jesus on Easter! (1 Corinthians 15)
Secured by His Life!


Calling everyone to fast throughout the week while feasting on Sundays in preparation for the joy of Easter.


Starting on March 5, 2025 daily devos written by spiritual leaders from around the city. Leading up to the Sunday message each week the devos link into the theme. So first several writing about the theme “NO ONE IS TOO FAR AWAY”. As we are calling 100,000 to pray for 1,000 baptisms we are encouraging our people that no one is too far away. The following week we are encouraging the 100,000 people praying that the dead are raised “IN RESPONSE TO FAITH FILLED REQUESTS”. And so forth…


Churches plan for baptism Sundays in April, and report back what they experience so that all the participating churches are able to celebrate what God is doing in communities all across the city.
