WATCH: Global Faith Leaders Gather at Powerful California Conference Amid Religious Persecution
Believers today see the tenacity and resiliency of God's people woven and retold throughout Scripture, the overcoming and faith-filled trust of generations upon generations. As conflict often closed in around the Israelites, chaos and confusion clamoring and clouding their natural vision, faithful and courageous men and women would arise in obedience and trust, knowing that God would move on their behalf. When facing the fiercest of battles, Scripture recounts how the worshippers were the first sent out.
This continues today.
California consumes many headlines as the fight continues against unconstitutional religious restrictions. In the midst of this, however, hundreds of pastors and leaders are gathered at the Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena, California, for Harvest International Ministry's Global Summit 2021.
Guest speakers at the event include Pastor Ché Ahn, Cindy Jacobs, Bill Johnson, Lance Wallnau, Mario Murillo, James Goll, Larry Sparks, Mike Bickle, Sam Caster and Charles Stock, with worship by Harvest Rock Music and Meredith Mauldin.
Ahn and his international apostolic network are part of the growing number of churches and faith leaders caught in the crossfire of recent religious persecution.
