Azusafest founders Fred and Wilma Berry were commissioned by Apostle Bill Hamon and the Christian International Board of regents. Christian International Apostolic Network (CIAN) will gather at 312 Azusa Street to declare a new Azusa Street.

Apostle Vance Russell of Arise Ministries International and Christian International West Coast director will officiate the Apostolic declaration rebranding of the Azusa Street movement. 

Azusafest is a gospel music celebration commemorating the Azusa Street Revival. The festival will take place on April 9-11 at Japanese American Community Cultural Center 244 South San Pedro Street downtown Los Angeles.

The AZUSAFEST 2015 theme is "The color line was washed away by the Blood of Jesus." This year we will celebrate the 109th year since the AZUSA Revival! 

During the Azusafest celebration on Saturday, April 11, pastors and leaders are invited to breakfast and roundtable discussion of our central theme "The Color line was washed away by the blood of Jesus." Pastors are invited to dialogue and help us rebrand the Azusa Street Revival as a movement of Unity. Saturday Night will include an Apostolic decree and prophetic declaration from the Christian International Apostolic Network, which was founded by Apostle Bill Hamon. There is an expectation of the fulfillment of William J. Seymour's prophecy of a greater revival spreading all over the world.

Saturday afternoon will feature The "Walk of Remembrance" tour which will showcase two historic sites in Los Angeles. The walk will begin at 244 South San Pedro Street at noon on Saturday, April 11, in the Little Tokyo community in downtown Los Angeles. Various community leaders and churches will participate in remembering two great African-Americans in Los Angeles: Biddy Mason and William Seymour. Noted speaker and historian Dr. Mel Robeck from Fuller Theological Seminary will lead and conduct the walking tour of these two historic locations. Many leaders from the churches in Los Angeles and from Brazil will be on hand to proclaim unity in our diversity.

The Azusa Street Revival lasted over three years and is widely considered to be the primary catalyst that sparked the worldwide Pentecostal movement. Currently, it is estimated that over 800 million Pentecostals in the United States, Latin America, Africa and Asia can trace their religious origins to the Azusa Street Revival and Bishop William Joseph Seymour.

Fred and Wilma Berry carry on the history of Azusa Street as international representatives through the Azusa Street Mission and Historical Society. The organization's mission is to carry the flame of Azusa Street to the next generation throughout the nations of the world.
