What is Together?
Launched in 2016, Together is a catalytic movement representing hundreds of ministries and thousands of churches who are united around their belief that Jesus changes everything. While those involved come from diverse backgrounds, we are united around an urgency to share Jesus and unleash a revival among Millennials and Gen Zs.
Filling the National Mall
Inspired by Explo ’72 and revivals of the past, Together began as the calling of a Millennial evangelist, Nick Hall, and through a coalition of friends who longed for revival and true John 17 unity. While people thought this group was crazy for calling for a million people to “the largest Jesus gathering in American history,” when the group had never organized anything nearly this big before, the vision actually happened… almost.
While they never reached a million people, on July 16, 2016, hundreds of thousands of people from all 50 states flooded the National Mall in the sweltering heat for one of the largest NextGen Jesus gatherings ever. The crowds were so large that the infrastructure of the National Parks became overwhelmed because of the heat, causing the gathering to be shut down 5 hours early while buses were still arriving from across the country!
“The purpose of Together was never to come to the Mall, but for a generation to be sent from the Mall.” – Nick Hall, Together 2016
God’s Bigger Plans
Since that first gathering, God has continued to move–filling stadiums in the United States and massive squares abroad.
Even when the pandemic canceled the Together 2020 gathering planned back on the National Mall, God proved He simply had bigger plans.
Through livestream events and other initiatives, we saw 1.1 million people respond to the Gospel last year. Truly, we are living in the greatest evangelistic opportunity of our lifetime.
Why TOGETHER ‘22?
Our world is hurting. Never before have we seen so much division, pain, and loss. Never before has the Church been so loud about issues that are not eternal and so silent about what matters most. In the midst of so much pain, it seems that fewer believers are sharing Jesus than ever before, and statistics tell us that Millennials and Gen Z people represent the most unreached and biblically illiterate in American history. Even with all of our big events, conferences, and churches, we are losing more ground than ever before.
We need revival. We need change. We need Jesus.
More than another spiritual high or large conference, the aim of TOGETHER ’22 is to activate a generation to share Jesus and be sent home with the courage, community, and tools to share the Good News.
If you are simply looking for a feel-good concert, this probably won’t be your vibe. If you want to be a part of seeing a supernatural shift on your campus, in your city, in your family, and in an entire generation–then join the party.
Is it possible to share Jesus to such a divided and politically correct world? Well, it happened before.
In June 1972, at the height of riots over Vietnam and political controversy, Billy Graham and Bill Bright led a gathering of 70,000 ‘Jesus People’ for a time of prayer, worship, and equipping to share the Gospel. From that gathering, and from that generation, came the largest evangelistic explosion of missions, church planting, and outreach efforts America has ever seen.
What to Expect
TOGETHER ‘22 will feature some of the best artists and speakers in the world. However, the singular aim of this event is that you would experience Jesus in such a way that both motivates and equips you to take the Gospel home.
We are gathering together the best tools and ministries for the most intentional equipping and commissioning ever, because we believe in you. We believe that God has called you to be a part of something far bigger than yourself. We believe He’s called you to reach your friends, family, school, and the nations.
It’s our aim to equip you with the tools to do it.
We believe there is an entire generation looking for something more than another high or event. We don’t need the natural–we need the supernatural. We need Jesus. Imagine an event where everyone comes not because they are excited about their favorite speaker or band, but because they need Jesus. What will happen? What can God do?
Let’s find out.
To be clear, Together events have always had some of the most anointed artists and speakers, and that will not change. We are simply asking you to come for something bigger.
What will never change is our commitment to the Together stage representing the breadth and beauty of the body of Christ. Men and women. All ages, races, and theological backgrounds will gather under the authority of Scripture, in the power of the Holy Spirit, and in the name of Jesus.
