JOIN HUNDREDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE, STUDENTS, PASTORS AND LEADERS FOR A TRANSFORMATIVE WEEK OF TEACHING FROM NATIONAL LEADERS, CONNECTION WITH OTHER YOUTH MOVEMENTS, AND ABOVE ALL, INTENSIVE PRAYER AND FASTING TO SHIFT HISTORY. IN THIS HOUR, WE BELIEVE THAT OUR PRAYERS CAN TURN THIS NATION BACK TO GOD. WILL YOU JOIN US?​

 

For 16 years God has used TheCall to gather hundreds of thousands of followers all across the nation in prayer and worship, making way for the kingdom to expand and heaven to come on earth. We are excited for this year as we believe that we will be able to shape history as we gather to pray, worship, fasting, and receive. There is something special when we come together for Him that can truly shake the world. He loves when His youth worship, lift their voices, and give their lives to Him, and that’s exactly what we plan to do. 

 

In this five-day event, we are hosting national and global leaders that will bring us powerful messages to today’s society and what we believe will be a turning point of revival. God wants to transform your life whether you’re new to Him or have been following Him your whole life, and wants to use you to transform your campus, church, city or region. But to see this happen, it takes prayer and fasting together as one and in one accord. So join us in Colorado Springs this summer as we go all in together to turn this nation back to God!

Q: What is the significance of this event?

A:

In 1996, Rock the Nations’ Prayer Storm exploded through America, where thousands of young people from across this nation gathered in Colorado Springs to fast and pray. For three consecutive years, they prayed that stadiums would be filled with John the Baptist’s fasting and prayer. In 2000, TheCall was born, and for the next 16 years, stadiums were filled with hundreds of thousands of Nazarite young men and women lifting up countless hours of prayer. But the last words of John the Baptist were not “prepare the way!” but “behold the Lamb!”

In 2011, a series of confirming words were given to Lou Engle and TheCall declaring: “There is coming a shift to TheCall, and it will not be just fasting and prayer, but proclamation of the Gospel, signs, wonders, and miracles, and Billy Graham’s mantle is coming to the nation again.” If TheCall truly was a John the Baptist movement, then you can bet there is a Jesus Movement coming!

But these movements aren't forged in a day. Like John the Baptist who was prepared in the wilderness, it took 3 years of focused intercession in the wilderness of Colorado Springs to birth TheCall. But our question is this: what would it look like if the youth of America gathered once again in united fasting and prayer to birth the great end-times harvest in the nations of the earth? We dare believe for a world-wide Jesus Movement, for stadiums to be filled with signs and wonders and the proclamation of the Gospel.

In the summer of 2017, on the 20th anniversary of this historic youth prayer and fasting movement, we are calling for a united gathering of young campus leaders for concerted prayer and fasting to see America turn back to God.
