OneWorship + GKPP 6.0
ONE ACCORD / ONE PLACE
IGNITING OUR CITY FOR REVIVAL!
(Acts 2:1)

Jesus Loves Kzoo and the Greater Kalamazoo Prayer Push joined forces to call the CHURCH together for a powerful time of prayer and worship! God is calling the Church in Kalamazoo to a deeper level of repentance and consecration this year, as we continue to lay a foundation for REVIVAL in our region!

Friday, Jan 30, from 7-9 PM  the church collectively entered into a ONE WORSHIP gathering which flowed into a 24 hour time of prayer & worship. A huge thank you to all the churches who volunteered to lead in two-hour blocks. This event would not have been possible without the many faithful prayer & worship leaders who gave of themselves!

Pictures of the Prayer Push are available on facebook: click here
