3. Together 2018 (Texas Motor Speedway) – Sat. Oct. 20th – Sun. Oct. 21st

Together 2018 is two days set aside calling this generation to move closer to Jesus and the hurting around them.

People from across the nation are gathering together to pray for our nation, worship Jesus, and be equipped and commissioned to a lifestyle of moving closer to Jesus and the world around us.

The speaker lineup includes: Priscilla Shirer, Francis Chan, Nick Hall, Matt Chandler, Ravi Zacharias, and more! Musical guests are: Hillsong Worship, Jesus Culture, Lecrae, and Andy Mineo!

Something needs to shift. We believe there is a better way than outrage or apathy. We’re ready to try something radically different: what if we moved closer to Jesus and the world around us — together?
